Ok Italian.

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

The eggplant was delicious. The service was laid back. The place is peaceful. What more could you want for dinner after a busy day of sightseeing.

Visited on a Friday evening with friends. Thankfully we had booked since the place was packed. Seems this restaurant attracts over 25s. Varied menu if you like Pizza, pasta, and grill. We shared a pizza as starter, followed by risotto and meat as mains. Nothing to complain with the food - genuine ingredients and good portions. Bathroom was super clean.... More

Crianza is one of the restaurants that open in the evening, not always so in Valletta. The food is good to great, and the staff are extremely friendly and efficient.

Sunday night in Valletta and a lot of the higher ranking restaurants in Valletta are closed...... Not this little gem tucked away opposite the police headquarters building! We had no booking and arrived after 8:00pm to be told that they would lay a table up even though the restaurant was busy. A bottle of wine and a bottle of sparkling... More

Went several times to this restaurant and their level of service and value and freshness of food can't be faulted. This is a pizza pasta grill type of restaurant but offers that extra something in the menu like the swordfish ravioli and delightful salads. Cheerful place without being noisy

My husband and I were looking for a nice hearty lunch amidst site seeing and we found it! Upon entry we were seated by a lovely woman who made small talk and then took our order. She brought us bread and then our meals. I had spaghetti with rabbit and my husband had pizza. We ordered a bottle of wine.... More
