Really nice evening

Lovely food and great prices. Unfortuntately very slow on the food to come out. A good hour for the starters, another 40mins at least for the mains. Staff were really lovely. Only complaint would be how long the food took.

Have been visiting this lovely family run Italian for well over a decade......absolutely love the menu , the cooking, the desserts and the quaint atmosphere.. They always have a few "off menu" items and go out of their way to please. I have a favourite pasta dish that nowhere else I have ever been can recreate.....my husband thinks the prosciutto... More

A very nice restaurant serving tasty Italian and Maltese food. Excellent, friendly service, welcoming to families and very accommodating to my daughter's dietary requirements.

Nice cozy family run restaurant, menu is quite small and they'd ran out of a few items, which suggests everything is handmade from scratch. The food is nice, with a friendly relaxed atmosphere from the staff.

Food good but not superb. ...we have eaten better at other Italian restaurant here at Malta. Vitello. ..meat very well cooked..Sauce was ok. Vegetables nothing special. Fries were not prepared at the house but from freezer. Pasta with red peppers. .tomato and garlic...nice. Staff...female waitress was very friendly and helpful. We decided that it was ok for a one-time visit.

While not being as disappointed as other reviewers with this place, we still had a few things that could be improved. Complementary bruschetta starters were top, as was the service. The meals (we both ordered seafood) took a long time to come out, say 45 minutes, but there were two other large groups in the restaurant. My partner was very... More

We are foodie couple, and we are really disappointed with their food. I couldnt exactly remember what my boyfriend had but it was like scrambled egg in the meal and a little bit watery.. It wasnt very nice. Nice interior design though, loads of history, but the food was a let down. Needs the menu to be revamp I suppose.

We stumbled on this restaurant as we were browsing for dinner in Sliema. What attracted us to the restaurant was the fact that nobody was standing outside with a menu trying to drag us in. We could take our time looking at the menu and decided without being pressured. It's a small cosy place. Our waitress was very friendly and... More

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 walked in a rain looking for somewhere to eat and just kept going as we wanted to end up somewhere special. There it was, no sharks outside to get you in no matter what, just our choice to go in. Family run, years of experience, lovely service and great food. We went back to Il Galeone for the second... More
