Plenty of atmosphere on a Saturday night, plenty of local people eating which is a good sign.

Visited twice during our visit to Sliema. First time the food was delicious, the second time my husband still enjoyed his meal but mine was slo bland it was tasteless.

We found this place at the bottom of the road our hotel was on, we didn't want to walk too far so we went in. It was very busy with plenty of locals which is a good sign. The pizza and pasta was the best I've had in a long time. And the bill was surprisingly low.

We found this restaurant after aimlessly wandering around Sliema and we are so glad that we did. We got there just after 7pm and it looked quite quiet. By 7:30 there wasn't a table free. The food is Italian and was absolutely gorgeous. So much so that we went twice more after that visit. It is good honest food (and... More

We have been visiting this restaurant regularly for years and we still thoroughly enjoy the experience. It has now become a second home to us! Owners Andrew, Carla and Josie are great hosts, and their staff is very welcoming, polite and accommodating. One great thing is that, even without booking, there is always possibility of finding a table since there... More

It was our last night in Malta and we had walked past this restaurant a few times without venturing inside. So, we decided to take the plunge and, I have to say, I am pleased we did. Unlike many of the other Italian offerings in the neighbourhood this establishment appeared more of a family business and less of a tourist... More

Rather average meal here spoiled by coffee which we had to return as it was obviously a second brew from previous grounds. The boss spend nearly the whole evening playing with a remote control trying to get the right setting on the LARGE tv screens so the staff and he could watch football. Reasonable meal at a reasonable price.

We wanted to try this trattoria after somebody recommended this place for a safe gluten free pizza. Hadn't been the case most probably we would have never found or tried this restaurant. The staff seem quite friendly and make their patrons feel at ease. We ordered two pizzas (one of which was gluten free), pasta and beef tagliata (some of... More

Lovely place, reasonable food For a good price. A lot of locals were eating there as well. I had the focaccia as a starter but could have been easily a main course. Second course was the tortellini, lovely but I missed a little bit of spices. My husband had the rabbit which was very tender. The price was very good... More
