New in Belfast as of today: Meanwhile in Belfast — yes, that is the full name — a new wood-fired pizza joint, has opened at 2 Cross St., near the Belfast waterfront. Owners Clementina Senatore and Alessandro Scelsi, both natives of Naples, Italy, have been working on their new restaurant venture for months and quietly opened today, March 19. They are now serving up their first crispy crust pies made in a wood-fired oven with family recipe sauce, house made pasta and desserts and specialty cocktails. Their Facebook page promises “true Neapolitan pizza” though a few French and Spanish dishes may sneak in now and again. Meanwhile in Belfast will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays and Mondays and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays.
