Nice and cosy

Great range of wines and the food is nice too. In summer one can even stay out in an alley beside the church.

This is a super little wine bar which also serves delicious simple food (and lots of it!). The service is very friendly and the night we went it wasn't busy but being so small I can see why people are recommending booking first. It's a lovely old building -atmospheric and charming! If you are staying at the Corinthia it's only... More

I organized a surprise gathering for my girlfriend at Fra Giuseppe on the 21st of December. The package was of good value and everybody had a good time..we owe this to the very friendly staff who took good care of us when we were there and catered to every single requirement beforehand. I highly recommend the place and it will... More

What a find! Recommended by the concierge in the palace hotel, this place is awesome. great selection of drinks and simple food, but huge portions - you have been warned!!! Very friendly and personal, but also very very small. Please book in advance - you will not be disappointed.

Excellent place for eat and drink a good wine. I was surprised that in a quiet small place you can have a professional kitchen, a professional team and a good price in the same time! I will come here again!

We visited this nice wine bar in Balzan, last Friday. Although we hadn't booked a table, we were lucky to find a table for two outside. The weather was fine so this was not a problem at all.Stefan and Daniel treated us as top vip's although we were dining there for the first time! The food selection is quite good... More
