Always Trust Crianza

I have been frequenting Crianza over and over again - I might even say that I lunch at Crianza each time I visit glorious Valletta. One can trust Crianza with presenting the guest with the same quality and good tasting food each and every time. The service is also done with a smile, which makes the... read more

I visit family in Valetta on a regular basis and was very impressed with this place. We received a very warm welcome. We had excellent home made pasta which was really tasty with a lot of Maltese touches . Overall it was great value and would definitely come back.

We popped in for lunch twice during our recent Maltese holiday. Francesca is a star. She makes you very welcome. After a delicious starter of bread and home made broad bean dip (Bigilla) we had the Gnocchi Zingara (it was so good we had it on both visits), washed down with a glass of refreshing beer. Including tip, for the... More

We visited Crianza for the first time last Saturday. It was a very pleasurable experience and would gladly re-visit. The service we received was excellent. The quality of the food is also great.

We took capriciosa and parma ham pizza with mozzarella the bufola. They were both very good,crispy and genuine. The portion was also very good. The starter which consisted of bread and a dip was also good and on the house. Service was impecabble and the waitress was very friendly. Definitely recommended if you want a good service and a very... More

This restaurant was so good we went twice on a four day visit to Valletta Friendly service and a great atmosphere; and we were acknowledged as returning guests with a complimentary liqueur. Can highly recommend the salmon ravioli, mushroom risotto and ribeye steaks. The pizzas looked lovely too. Food freshly cooked to order so don't expect fast food - it's... More

It's very cosy and has all its antique features retained inside The menu is varied with starters, pasta, meat and fish dishes, as well as pasta... More

visited here on our first night in Valletta. Nice enough restaurant. Pizza was ok as was the rabbit ravioli. Not the best food we had but not awful either. Probably wouldn't return but only because there are some amazing bistros in Valletta that we preferred.

Recommended in guide book as a cheaper restaurant in the city centre. We had a bit of trouble finding it, your reviewers comment that it is opposite the police station just off the main square would have helped. (We cant use the web on holiday) We both had excellent main courses and a bottle of good Maltese wine all for... More
