This restaurant is not very well known, and in fact the concierge at the Intercontinental didn't know about it: what a miss !!! This small restaurant offers cosy seating, very friendly staff and really excellent Italian food and wines !! we cannot recommend enough to go there when in St Julian if you are fond of Italian cuisine. Prices are... More

Our main courses did not arrive until well past 11.00pm. The starters and the main courses of rack of lamb and steak were generous and perfectly cooked but were so late in arriving that... More

The wines compliment Ivan's food beautifully, the restaurant gives each table its own privacy and the food is cooked to perfection. The meats that myself and my guest had were as requested, blue and medium rare and cooked just as we liked them. Ivan and... More

The food here is amazing - we had great wine, great food, and service was really top notch, lovely people - it was definitely the best food of the trip and the second best restaurant experience of the holiday. Given the standard of the food its very good value. Outdoor seating faces onto a busy pub/bar with no particular view... More

Went to Assaggi with high hopes but were very disappointed and felt it is very overpriced. Food was ok but the chef was trying to be too fancy without getting the basics right. We had a table on the outside terrace which appeared to be next to a covered up generator, hence we were extremely warm (fair enough we could... More
