Currently staying at Buggibba and already dinned here twice. The local specialties are highly recomendable. Good service, good food, good value for money. One of those meals was tuna steak with local tomato and capers sauce, and the tuna was cooked to perfection (which is not easy).

Table for two, we were welcomed by the waiter and got a nice Table in the porch... Nice Atmosphere. The Menu is quite rich, I chose Spaghetti ai Frutti di mare, my friend a greek salad. Ingrdients were fresh, and the cuisine genuine, it feels almost like home. Espresso was a good one (the italian said)!

Long waits for drinks and food. Food boring, uninspiring and tasteless... pork belly tough. How it got mentioned in the Lonely Planet guidebook is beyond me!

We ended up going here twice, when another restaurant we wanted to visit was closed. The first time, I had the Pulpetti, which was really nice, and my husband had the Rabbit. Both were excellent. The second time, I had a burger and my husband had the swordfish - again excellent! The service here was good, the seating was nice,... More

Marvellous food here and good value. We visited three times. The staff are lovely and very attentive. The menu gives you plenty of options , and we tried a variety. The fresh fish was wonderfull. The children loved the pizzas and fish soup. The nutella pancakes were very nice indeed.

The service of the staff here was amazing. Our son fell ill and they looked after us/him while we were at the restaurant. The food.....oh my days the portions were huge, even for children. I needed to have my pizza boxed up because I wanted to leave and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. I am so glad... More
