We chose to eat at Il Galeone as it had excellent reviews on Tripadvisor and was just around the corner from out hotel. Unfortunately, we were rather disappointed. I found the service attentive but perfunctory rather than friendly. We were given some free bruschetta to start our meal, which was greatly appreciated and very tasty, but that was the nicest...

We have just come back to our hotel well stuffed and sleepy after a meal at this restaurant. For food of the high quality we were served, we felt content with the bill, €63 for two people. We had salmon linguine to start; and this was in the best Italian English style - loads-a cream, salmon, and piping hot, hotter... More

We had a full Italian dinner: Minestrone and Pasta. The leek soup, the minestrone soup as well as the pasta with bacon and the one with tomatos were excelent. The restaurant has not got a very sophistcated interior and ambience but the cook knows how to prepare great pasta and the service is very friendly..

We had some really great pasta here, and the place has a decent atmosphere. It's definitely one of the better options along the Sliema strip (although the competition is pretty weak).

If you like good italian food, nicely decorated tables with linen serviettes and attentive service, this is the place to go in Sliema. And the prices are reasonable, Excellent value for money!

After trying 8 different local restaurants we discovered Il Galeone which for us was simply the best. The food, wine and service was fantastic. The staff not only provided excellent service they also wanted to make sure you not only enjoyed the food but your evening as well. In future this restaurant will definitely be our number 1 choice.
