Lovely Italian restaurant, small menu but superb food. Ravioli was very delicate and delicious and the fresh tuna was the best I have ever tasted although far too big a portion.

We found this place by accident on Strait street at the rear of Marks and Spencers. The street here is narrow more like an ally way . It's a small restaurant, not may table inside or out, but don't let that put you off the food is out of this world. The service is friendly and the staff are happy... More

We were met by friendly staff outside drumming up business. The staff are all Italian from various parts of Italy and those we dealt with were friendly and helpful, not always the case with Valletta restaurants. There is a good menu with a wide choice and what we ordered was excellent (salad and king prawns). Plenty of choice on the... More

Small restaurant. We ate inside because it was quite windy and there was a great atmosphere. Staff warm , cheerful and friendly. Good food, althought we felt portions were rather small.

This was my favorite restaurant during my stay in Valletta. I was served by 2 polite and friendly ladies. Ordered the grilled fish and a half bottle of wine. Fish was fresh and cooked very well. A very satisfying meal.

When on holiday we like to eat somewhere different every night so that we get to try lots of different cuisine and tastes. We went here on our first night as the restaurant had good reviews on Tripadvisor. We weren't disappointed. We ate inside both nights but they do have some tables outside. The food is good , the staff... More

It is nice to see Strait street becoming more lively to reflect its raucous past and this restaurant is a welcome addition. Papannis is an intimate restaurant with great lighting and decor and some outside seating, if you want to take in the vibe of the area. The food was great with lovely home made pasta and various fish and... More
