This lovely restaurant, overlooking the port of St. Paul's Bay has become one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Malta. It has a a varied menu of Italian mixed with Mediterranean cuisine while still manages to be authentic. The beef fillet was divine and the pizzeria is one of the best in the Bugibba area. Try to get a table... More

We enjoyed a well prepared Pizza by Ciccio at Portobello. Value for money will recommend. The Mozzarella is fiore de latte and lovely and white even when cooked and taste good.

Me and my partner visited Malta in 2011 and were recommended Portobellos. The restaurant was lovely and quite and we were lucky enough to have a table next to the window which overlooked the harbour. Amazing views to have during dinner. The food was very well priced and absolutely delicious. The staff were lovely and very attentive. We have never... More

Thanks to Ciccio, the pizzamaker of Portobello Restaurant, who has a fantastic skill and passion for pizza making. We live in Malta and always advise our friends to go and eat Pizza there! It is great for me, who I am a bit intolerant to the yeast, to find a pizza I can digest easily.

We had a delightful meal here. The food was all perfectly cooked and it was clear all meals were prepared fresh to order. This was only marred by the slow service and long wait for food.

The food here was so overpriced for the quality. We felt it was a bit of a tourist trap and they gave us extra bread and garlic bread which we didn't ask for (and didn't eat) but was added to our bill. This practice is really outdated. Everything about the place was outdated and was so pretentious. The mains were... More

Always fresh, I dine here weekly. Everything on the menu tastes great. The pizzeria close by is also nice for a quick alternative. The pasta is always al-dente and portions are generous. Has one of the best rib-eye steaks you can find in Malta. Very tasty! Thank you so much. I will be back!
