Great lunch

Got lucky with a table for lunch here and enjoyed it immensely. There is a great buzz to the place, gorgeous bread and cheese to nibble while you wait for more food. The charming waiters list the specials for the day till your face lights up and that's your order sorted. Food is good, and the... read more

No wine list. No menu. Recommended by Maltese friends I looked forward to the experience. Totally disappointed as this restaurant caters to its own local clientele and obviously is uninterested in non locals patronage. After being offered a very inferior Gozo wine, which we declined we were offered a couple of alternative options - and selected the better of the... More

Right in the middle of Valletta but off the main roads, this bustling little trattoria opens for lunch only. It seems to have a faithful clientele many of who seem to be business customers so booking is essential and early is probably good too. If you like genuine Mediterranean food, this is for you. Even before your order, delicious Maltese... More

we had a great time but I can understand why some may have not. They don't fuss over you they occasionally shout across the restaurant and there is a hussle and bussle to the place. However we ate what they recommended. Some pasta to start please.... Surprise they brought out ravioli on a big dish and we helped ourselves. Delicious.... More

We hadn't eaten in Da Pippo since 2008, we returned as we recalled it was the best meal we'd had not only in Malta, but in Europe. We were not disappointed. We were served complimentary olives and sun dried tomatoes, Maltese peppered goat's cheese, Maltese sausage in a warm ragu and Maltese bread rolls with olive oil for dipping. Had... More

On holiday in Malta, and recommended to come here by a Maltese friend. He advised us to book in the morning as warned it gets fully booked by lunch. We were glad we had booked in the morning, as when we arrived there was a que forming down the street of locals. The place was bustling inside, lots of tables... More

We had been recommended this place, near the Courts, as being frequented by Government people, judges, lawyers, etc., so we figured it must be good. We tried twice for lunch, both times the place was completely empty. We were rejected the first time because of not having a reservation, but the second time we were 'sourly' told that "for the...

We had just arrived in Valletta and our hotel proposed this small/compact restaurant who provided us with a most enjoyable lunch with sensible pricing of food and drink. Booking is essential during the working week. We went with the host's recommendation which was the best decision we made. Highly recommended.
