What a restaurant, certainly not to be missed when in Malta even if you're not staying in Valletta it is certainly worthwhile the trip. Authentic local food, served by authentic local friendly experts. It's small so expect to wait or call in advance to make a reservation. Great wine list too.

Small, cosy, noisy place, where locals go for lunch. Give this place a try and enjoy the tasty food served up!

Don't expect your normal eatery, at pippos things are done differently, no menus!! But amazing stuff, food is always super fresh and the service is amazing, first time you go you might not like it, but once you become a local you will never change it for lunch

Not in the middle of the street and therefore quiet. Taste the pizza or the cappelaci you will certainly like it.

This is a place known by the locals. It was full when we arrived but luckily we could find a free table close to the door. They do not have a menu list, they just say what they have in a very familiar and friendly way and you must choose quickly. But this is one of the best things, the... More

We visited Valetta for a day and my friend, who is Maltese, had pre-booked us a table at this gorgeous local restaurant. This is genuine Maltese food at it's best. It was a Tuesday lunchtime and the restaurant was full. The service was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed everything delivered to the table (we didn't order, or even see a... More

The place is cute and the food is amazing. However what we did not like was the fact that the guys did not show us a menu abc the bill was a price all together ... Which looked more that we had eaten. So go in because food is delicious but ask for the prices!!!!

This was the most authentic maltese meal i have ever had! The service, food and atmosphere was brilliant! This restaurant was recommended to use by a friend. We were warned by them that its only open lunchtime on week days, they are hard to get hold of to book, and there is no menu.... I am glad we managed to... More

Not easy to find a table in this quaint family run Trattoria. Maltese chef patron Francesco has inherited his father's talents for exquisite Italian cuisine. Open lunch time Monday to Saturday. Pre book your table not to be disappointed. Most famous people visiting the island have been to Da Pippo !
