We ate here on our last night of our holiday - we had tried to find it last year but did not go far enough along Old Bakery Street. Our only regret is that we did not find this wonderful restaurant earlier. My husband, 14 year old son and myself all thought this was one of the best meals out... More

We ate at Capistrano twice as I couldn't leave Valletta without having their risotto once more. I recommend booking as even midweek it was still busy and Saturday night was packed. The food was perfect, and the atmosphere was pleasant. Service was just right, not too long to wait but I didn't feel hurried at any time. I am vegetarian... More

The restaurant is located in Old Bakery Street and only consists of a few tables, making it ideal to book a table beforehand. The menu is not that vast yet it is varied with meats and poultry, pasta and risotto (which can be chosen as either a starter or a main course portion), and fish. The service was very good,... More

We chose this restaurant for a special occassion, and were not disappointed! My husband and I are foodies, and love to eat out so are quite picky, but we absolutely loved the experience at Capistrano. The food was lovely and presented in a gorgeous way. For starters we chose the pumpkin risotto and the mushroom tart, both of which were... More

Very cosy and well decorated restaurant. The staff are very Friendly and caring. We had the stuffed rabbit (Exquisite - a must have) and Meagre (day's speciality - good but I would go for something else next time). The dessert was very good although part of our apple crumble was a but over cooked. The only 'No' is the delay... More

Capistrano is a small Mediterranean restaurant serving traditional cuisine. The seafood pasta is a must the flavours are amazing. My husband had two tapas dishes one prawn with salmon and the second belly pork. The belly pork was tender and the size of the portion was like a main meal. The service was first class and excellent value for money.... More

The food at this place is divine, and that's the most important thing, but there's so much more that it offers. The ambience is very special, and the service is impeccable and so lovely. There are few restaurants that offer such an overall pleasant experience, with truly stellar food. The wine selection is great and very well-priced. The desserts were... More
