Great food

Visited the restaurant a couple of times and the food was great. However, I was not the one to pay the bill...not on the cheap side I think.

This restaurant offered some great first plates. The pasta with sea shells was spectacular. Clearly the second plate was just as super. We took mixed grill. I suggest this dish. The sweets were sicilian and glorious.

Tried this trattoria on 3 Sept 2015. It was expensive (for what is) lazy, uninspired, unpleasant tasting food that i wouldn't dare to serve guests in my home. Let's start with the simple salad. Apart from the tomato which they couldn't really bugger up, it consisted of rocket leaves eaten through by caterpillars or whatever other insect had dined on... More

We went there for a family dinner on holiday. Really liked the ambience and food. Would recommend you try the spaghetti with clams or the bisteka. Both great and yes will come back for another dinner before the end of these great relaxing holiday in Malta.

The food at Tana del Lupo is authentic, well cooked and delicious! The staff is courteous and always ready to help - service is excellent. Maybe the only thing letting the restaurant down is that it could do with a slight refurbishment but other than that I can't fault it. Try their pasta dishes and their 'pesce al sale' (fish... More

Lovely authentic Sicilian food. We came here with a group of locals who love this restaurant and are regulars here. We shared a lovely sea bass roasted under a salt crust, homemade pasta and veal scallopini. The desserts were to die for.

Went back again and this restaurants good . Still as pricey as last time but at least the fish is very fresh. The feel in this restaurant is like being is sicily as it is full of sicilians. Not a bad thing mind you

Eat there a few weeks ago and the food was good. This is not he first time I have eat there and the food never disappoints. One might expect a little more for the price but I suppose I knew that before going as having been there before. Its a very typical Italian Trattoria type restaurant and full of Sicilian... More
