I have been ordering ftiras and ciabattas for quite a while now and they have always been excellently prepared, fresh and also having a taste to die for!

Firstly I did not eat here so this is not a review of the food just the strange attitude of the owner. We arrived at 2.45 and were reviewing the menu outside when the owner suddenly appeared and removed it telling us he was closing. Fair enough but why remove the menu when clearly he will not be closed for... More

I'm interning in valletta and have lunch there pretty much every day, a meal and a drink for €3. I mean you can't beat that! Ftira bread is from now my favourite bread! 100% quality!

Have been going to Reno's since 10 years, stopping only for the short period of time when there was a management change, thank God, the original owner is back now, together with his delicious ftiras! This place is the one to be if you want an excellent maltese ftira with genuine ingredients. There is an unlimited choice on the menu... More

I must admit, I have mixed feelings about this place. When I had visited Reno's in the past, I had found it a lot better, and a whole lot more wholesome. Finding it quite packed at lunch time, my mother and I moved upstairs, where we were left in darkness for quite a while. The facilities are quite terrible too.... More

We stumbled across Reno's Cafe and had a lovely lunchtime snack which was also excellent value. We had the ftira (maltese bread) which came toasted and packed full of tuna and salad and cost only €2, the menu also included other sandwiches and main meals. The cafe was closing up at around 3pm.

Reno's is not a restaurant as its only open til 3pm but it has never said it was. What this place is is the number one place to grab a great snack or lunch, without breaking 10 euros for two people. A great selection of fillings, available as wraps, sandwich, paninis etc, but the one to have anything on is... More

Reno's is on a side street in Valletta but it is worth a visit for quality food and reasonable prices especially in a capital city. The food was lovely and service was fast although we felt rushed to finish because the cafe seemed to be closing for the afternoon. However, Reno's food was lovely and we were surprised when the...
