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

The food was fantastic would... More

Had 2 evening meals at Papannis, both great. Lovely food, nothing too much trouble, eg having a slightly bigger starter as a main course, and excellent house wine. Friendly staff and a good atmosphere. We were just sorry the restaurant was not open on a Sunday otherwise we would have had 3 meals there.

This restaurant offers pleasant, personalised service in a great Valletta interior. However, our experience is that the quality of food simply can't justify the inflated prices. We had salmon and rabbit respectively and it was OK, but no more than that. I feel bad not giving this place a better review, but with places like Palazzo Preca just yards up... More

Nice atmosphere in the restaurant, very service minded staff. Food could look more attractive, using vegetable or herbs as decoration, but tasted good. No pizzas. Very good local wine. Bathroom clean. We were satisfied with the visit.
