Brilliant

One of the best meals ever. Food is always fresh, service impeccable and ambiance perfect. I booked ahead as I was with a party of 9. Gets very busy. My family enjoyed themselves immensely and although we live some 20odd hours away in Australia, we will be back. Thoroughly recommend!

There is no menu ... you are offered what is fresh for the day in the chiller cabinet. There is no wine list .... you are shown a wine rack. You need to arrive early to get a table ... reserved tables seem to disappear! The room just exudes friendly atmosphere.

To sum it up? It feels like home, with great home cooked type dishes! Dining at Da Pippo is an experience like no other, one which helps you calm down and relax for the moment you are eating without the feeling that time is pressing! Could not be better! Well done.

It is not a place for romantic dinner. It is not a place for nice hideaway. But it is a place your mamma and pappa would love. If you go there for lunch you will find that majority of visitors know each other and constantly challenge their friends. People scream at each other and there is a lot of small... More

Tried Da Pippo for lunch today and was really impressed, lovely atmosphere, fantastic welcome, friendly staff who although are really busy are attentive and friendly. Appetizers were put on everybody's table soon after they sat down. We opted for their recommendation of a mixed fish plate which was above expectation and looking at other dishes being served all looked mouth... More

A great place for lunch, (opens Mon to Sat) when in Valletta. If you like fish based pasta, you must Try the linguini vongole!

Firstly, one should be aware of the concept of this restaurant before he decides to review it. It is a typical Italian trattoria with 'feel like home' atmosphere. If you never experienced something similar, you will find odd the fact that there are no regular menus and usual service. They serve just several meals that are prepared that day. That... More

A fascinating restaurant. The service was great. Particularly friendly and the food was very good and interesting. It IS different, the lack of menus and the variations in the plates. None appeared to be the same but the ones we had were very tasty and nicely presented. A very special place!

Always consistant, really really good food, buzzy atmosphere, not cheap, but I love it. Wines are extremely reasonably priced. Do book ahead as it is only open for lunch, Monday to Fridays, pity really.
