Not much to add that others haven't said: great food, nice staff, great atmosphere, a proper restaurant where you can dine and feel well. We ate here two nights in a row because we liked it a lot, the second night was on Friday and by 20:00 it was full of people and a line was formed with others waiting... More

The guidebook warned us to be here before 20:00 and luckily we were - had we been half an hour later we would have missed a table. This has all the hallmarks of a restaurant that does not rely on tourists to be successful. It appeared to have a mix of locals and tourists and when our pizzas arrived it... More

If you are in Sliema and fancy some good Italian cooking, with friendly service and great atmosphere come here, you won't be disappointed. Four of us ate main courses, desserts, drinks and a bottle of wine for 82 euros which we think was good value for money. The food was great, freshly prepared and served by friendly staff. Either book... More

Went there for dinner during our stay in Malta. Cosy interior, one of those places where you find locals dining on a Friday night. The food was great. We had an absolutely gorgeous salad with chargrilled chicken and a bowl of mussels for starters. Both dishes were delicious, I think I would have licked the plates if not for people... More

First visit on first evening in Malta, busy with a mix of local people and visitors. Made welcome and served fairly quickly despite the place being fairly full (additional room upstairs). Good beer and pasta as well as more up-market dishes. Having seen the size of the pizzas we shared one on the second visit in order to have room... More

Food was very good and the continuous stream of patrons proved that it's a hit amongst locals and tourists alike. Maltese Falcon wine was great and good value. Restaurant was easy to locate and the relaxed atmosphere made the entire visit enjoyable.

This restaurant was packed as it was Saturday night so a reservation is advisable. The service was good and not bad value for money (41 euros) for starter, two main courses, a bottle of wine, a bottle of water. The pizzas were not as good as we had expected, as the base was a bit too well cooked and very... More

Typical Italian cross restaurant, which you will find a lot of in Malta. Packed out by the time we finished our meal. Had an excellent fish Risotto and the local wine was decent. Lots of locals and gets full quickly, so either book or get there early.

We visited this restaurant with a large group of friends whilst staying in Sliema. The interior has the rustic and casual appeal of a traditional Mediterranean eatery, and the service is friendly and prompt. It is a popular with both locals and tourists so may require booking during peak season and at weekends. We didn't order starters as the main... More
