Stumbled on this restaurant as we strolled thru strait street. Absolutely amazing meals, service is friendly and atmosphere is truly an experience to be remembered. Will definitely be back soon with friends. Highly recommend homemade ravioli stuffed with burato cheese. Excellent!

My wife and I had dinner here on a Froday night. We shared Auvergne sandwich starter and bruschetta and we had ravioli for mains. All the food was fabulous and the service was excellent too!! The dessert also deserves a special mention. I had a coconut and chocolate cake dessert :) yumm

The pasta is imaginative, different and cooked to perfection. The sweet is definitly to die for. The staff is efficient but friendly. In short, if you are in Valletta, this is a restaurant that you just CANNOT miss.

We were walking in Valletta looking for somewhere to eat and we saw this sandwich board saying Papannis Italian restaurant had such and such a score on tripadvisor, so we decided to try and find it. It isn't in the best of locations so that means the food had to be good to get decent scores in Tripadvisor. The food... More

In a word, delicious! Nice local wine selection, and located in a very active neighborhood. Filler text to meet the 100 character minimum requirement.

An ideal place to share a bottle of wine together with some antipasti. Great for a relaxed night. The service is excellent and since this is a small restaurant, the waiters are always at your service. The food tastes genuine and fresh even though costly. The kitchen is open and one can see the chefs preparing the food. This shows... More

We came upon Papannis after trying several times, without success, other restaurant options; we were starving after missing lunch and having to wait until establishments began opening again for dinner. So, we were eager, but also a little sceptical as the location is not great, down a back lane, but there were others restaurants there (including one flash looking one),... More

Very good service, and amazing food, reasonably priced all served with Maltese flair. Would recommend to anyone, hidden away down a side street making it a little classy establishment with a great vibe.
