A family of 6 accommodated with a smile. Wonderful, simple, tasty Italian dishes. Will be back for more!

Wow, what a delightful little Italian restaurant tucked away on a side street in the middle of Valletta. Exceptionally warm service and very fresh and delicious food in an intimate setting. We both had the fusilli bolognese cooked to perfection. Highly recommended.

Stopped by here on a whim with my girlfriend to get out of the sun for a while. Beautiful fish dishes and authentic Italian meals. Amazing desserts too - highly recommended!

Down a little alley way, tables outside, nice service and a great, simple meal full of Mediterannean flavour! Will definitely go back next time in Malta.

We stumbled across this superb Itallian in the side streets of Valletta by chance. We had a magnificent evening. Wayne, our waiter is the perfect host and the owner is very very hospitable. We had excellent food, sea bass and they looked after us superbly. A must visit if you are in Valletta.

Beautiful little place, down a side street. We walked past it at first trying to find it. The waiter was from Italy and told us that some of the food was from Naples. I have no idea, not did I care because I stuffed it all in my face. We tried the Maltese red wine here, I'm not a wine... More
