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.

We stumbled across this lovely restaurant whilst walking around Valetta on a hot evening. We were greeted by the friendly waiter Wayne who spoke very good English. All the food is freshly prepared with the best ingredients. We had a lovely leisurely evening with a bottle of Italian wine and will definately return before we go home. You will not... More

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

There were 8 of us visiting on a very hot day, we were shown the cellar room and Wayne our waiter told us about the history of the restaurant, he talked through the menu in very good English and was very attentive without rushing us and accommodated the variations we asked for on the Menu. 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.

I have been tempted to dine at this restaurant for some time and finally I had the opportunity to do so. I confirm that the great reviews I heard about this place are true. It's a nice little place with a warm atmosphere. The service and the attention was fantastic. Prices are not cheap but considering the place and the... More

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
