Brilliant food

Fantastic food and service. Advise to book a table at the weekends because it can be very busy. This restaurant is mainly fish dishes but they have another outlet in Valetta that is based on meat.

We, a family of four with two older teenage kids, ate at Sciacca twice, during our week's holiday. The first time was mid-week and we had impeccable, five star service from two waitresses. My wife had sea bass, which was amazing. The other main courses were good, without being outstanding. The desserts were really nice and the portions so generous... More

This Italian fish restaurant offers attentive service with a high quality menu. The explanation of the specials available was offered and the fish on offer shown as it is displayed on ice. One of our family opted for a special - Tuna - beautifully presented cooked to perfection. Mussels another choice - small but well prepared and exactly as described... More

I had dinner there one and wish I had a chance to go back. The service was welcoming professional, diligent and friendly. The grilled fish delicious along with some amazing olive oil and vinegar they serve with warm bread.

I rate this as one of the best fish restaurants I've been to, and not just locally. What is unique however is their outstanding service - quite a rare trait to find on the island.

Pleasant people but terrible service so a difficult one. Waited for 40 odd minutes for a grilled sea bass that never arrived. Threw in the towel and asked to cancel the order. The manager was very apologetic but gave no reason why and offered to cook something else! Had had enough by then so asked for the bill for the... More

This is a great restaurant and looks great but it is not very family friendly. The waiter did not give my 14 year old son a menu and he was very offended. The food was great, I have no complaints on that though. The service is excellent and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to couples and friends.

Thank you for your feedback Mr. Daniel Vella We are naturally very disappointed that you did not find our staff family friendly on your visit. We do pride ourselves on our level of service and attention to detail and clearly forgetting to give the menu to your son is inexcusable! Therefore i will look into this matter with my staff...

Excellent Service. Great waiter Selimi. Great tasting food and fresh fish. We had the linguine with the lobster, as suggested by Selimi, turned out to be excellent. I would go there again
