Wonderful Italian in Malta

The first thing to note here is that the pasta is freshly made and comes in a variety of different options. The food caters to both vegetarian and non as you would expect for Italian and the wine was very reasonably priced. The atmosphere is really good inside the cave like restaurant and when we... read more

Fast, clean and great for lunches or basic lunches. Waitress is always helpful and courteous. When we take a large group she's absolutely great.

We have been coming to Malta year after year and this has to be the best pizza and pasta on the island. The bean houmos type free starter is moorish to say the least! The pizzas are brilliant and Francesca just makes you feel so welcome. She remembers us every year and cannot do enough to make sure our experience... More

Yummy, yummy !!! This Italian restaurant serves amongst other Italian dishes, home made raviolis. Simple (in its positive meaning), fresh and delicious. Plus, the waitressing is nice. A good restaurant in the heart of Valletta.

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.

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 experience that tad bit...

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
