“Lovely meal with a spectacular view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We enjoyed a lovely meal at this restaurant. Our pick herb coated pork belly which was delicious and tender and a bottle of Isis Chardonnay. But the best part of this restaurant has to be the magical view of the gorgeous city of Valletta. Just perfect.

“The best Italian food since a long time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

Together with my wife i ate here during our vacation at Malta. The staff was very friendly; the argentinian bottle of wine we chose was great and the food even better. Above all we enjoyed the view of Valetta's skyline; awesome!
Thanks for this great experience.

“great view - nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Enjoyed this place in April in the veranda which enabled to enjoy the view alike outdoor seating but less cold. Of course the view is amazing and is a real bonus of this place. Service was excellent and very friendly. Food was nice enough but I would say on the average side. I'd still recommend this place, although not a real WOW.

“Pizza with a view”

ThiS is a very nice place where to eat a very good pizza with an amazing view of Valletta in a calm ambiance. I've also tried red raw gamberi .... Simply delicious

“Good food but not authentic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

The pizza's might have good flavor but the details of authentic Neopolitan pizza (like puffy crust around the edges with burnt spots) were absent. I also had the caprese salad with tomato and buffalo mozzarella the tomatoes were hard/inedible and the mozzarella was probably 3 or 4 days from being fresh enough to eat. That would never happen in Naples.
The rest of the food was competent, good service and lovely view. I will say that the wine list was very weak and the waiter didn't really speak Italian or English very well.
