Pasta is very good. I had Ravioli with Crab and Lopster filling, which was excellent my daughter had Pasta with bacon. It only tasted of salt. I ask if the Rose wine is dry before I ordered but it was sweet. It was also written on the bottle. However the staff is very friendly the place is cosy.

First lunch experience in Valleta and we were not disappointed with the recommendation for this establishment in TA.

The spaghetti vongole and ravioli al fungi were perfect, and our waitress Louisa just great. The place is unpretentious, concentrates on good simple food, well cooked and very reasonably priced.
