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.

It had been a very hot day and the alley was cool, so it seemed a good idea - except that at times the... More

It is a little gem in a narrow street in Valletta. We were surprised by the kindness of the owner and his staff. And very important for a restaurant: the food was very good and we liked the Maltese wine.

Wow, what a delightful little Italian restaurant tucked away on a side street in the middle of Valletta. Exceptionally warm service and very fresh and delicious food in an intimate setting. We both had the fusilli bolognese cooked to perfection. Highly recommended.

Stopped by here on a whim with my girlfriend to get out of the sun for a while. Beautiful fish dishes and authentic Italian meals. Amazing desserts too - highly recommended!

Down a little alley way, tables outside, nice service and a great, simple meal full of Mediterannean flavour! Will definitely go back next time in Malta.

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
