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.

Despite being crowded and busy (assuming you find a table) this restaurant perfect pasta. The Lobster ravioli and maltese sausage pasta are divine. A must have. Not cheap yet excellent quality. Don't look at the menu - ask for the daily specials.

Da Pippo is as ever noisy, welcoming, casual, great food and service. Been going there for over 20 years and it is always smashing. Don't bother with menus. Even the daily specials vary from table to table, waiter to waiter, order to plate! Booking a must.

Amazing food, amazing atmosphere, friendly staff who know what they're doing and were on the ball. Everyone seemed to know each other. Every dish we saw come out looked amazing. Tapenade with lovely fresh bread, sun dried tomatoes in olive oil, Parma ham to start. My husband had grilled swordfish with giant prawns and I had veal in a delicious... More

This place is almost always packed and you need to book in advance to find a place. It is open for lunch only and it is not open on Sundays and public holidays. The food is always fresh and it is very good. The staff have a unique local charm in greeting clientele especially if they are regulars. My wife... More
