The first time I had Pizza in Belfast Sapper was in the Moko Cafť in North Street in the early 1960`s.
Also had it in the Coffee Inn and Italian restaurants in Dublin around the same time.
Have no idea when the `Chains`arrived in either City however.

I had lots of Italian mates in Belfast in the mid to late eighties. They all worked in the restaurants. Me a prod, though in truth I was never religious. I never gave a monkeys about that. I'm a 'judge you as I find you' kinda guy. Anyways, Alex from Naples and Danieli from Milan were two of my best mates. Great guys. Alex was meant to captain Italy in the Olympics at wrestling, but it was cancelled because of some war or other. I can't remember. That's not the kind of thing you'd forget if you were involved. They were really warm-hearted guys. They worked in Speranza's and Villa Italia. Several years after I left Belfast, maybe about five years later, I was casually walking through a city centre mall and someone called me, vocally. It was Alex. He and Danny had their own little pizza joint. I got a freebie, of course. It was really great to see that they had settled in Belfast and had made something of themselves. I hope they are still there and are doing well.
