We went for a dinner on a weekday, we sat outside on the tables on tge street, which was a great atmosphere, alao because there was a small orchestra playibg vlassical music down the road. Fish dishes were great and most importantly the personnel was extremely welcoming and nice. Highly recommended!!!

I found this restaurant after being refused a table for one in another popular restaurant nearby. I think they did me a favour because this was the most delicious meal I've had so far in Malta. Tuna carpaccio, fresh spaghetti with clams and a trio of amazing deserts. Portion size was just right so I managed three courses midday without... More

This is a nice Italian restaurant hidden in a small street near the main square. The food is tasty and fresh. Two things to note - they don't serve salads for dinner and the desserts are rather smallish. They are a bit more expensive than other restaurants, especially for meat and fish dishes.

Papannis is regented by an italian family and you can notice it in their dishes. Gianmarco is an excellent host, speaks spanish perfectly and makes a great coffee. The food was good, although, for some strange reason, they do no serve salades for dinner. But worth the visit. Fully recommended. Ah, and the pannacotta is spectacular.

Just arrived from Pappanis and what a great place it is. Food and service both outstanding. Try the bruscetta as well as they are very tasty. Most recommended place.

We went there for an office business lunch. This place at the first sight looks good, that's what attracted our attention. The service is very good, the staff very friendly. The menu is full of references, italian cuisine obviously. We had a platter of cheese and ham. To share for 3. This was amazingly tasteful. Then I had some Tagliatelle... More
