“Really good pasta and a perfect lunch in the capital city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

I've been here so many times I've lost count and throughout the years I can confirm this place is one of the best places on the island to have a good genuine goods plate of pasta in a buzzy charasmatic restaurant, the owner and staff complement your lunch giving you plenty of drinks and abudent mini apetizers till your pasta or fish or meat gets to the table, the perfect order would be Linguine Prawns which are to die for and any choice of fish or meat as a main is always cooked to ones desire in a typical Sicilian Way, just ask for Cikku, Charo or Cheetah who I call the Triple C's and it cant go wrong, Da Pippo is Da One

“Unique dining experience in Valletta.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

Valletta is known world wide for its history and culture!
Da Pippo in this city gives it the exquisite taste which for centuries the knights admired, strived for and left as legacy. Without Da Pippo Valletta will only be a passive monument.

“Mouth-watering”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Da Pippo's is a good choice if you're visiting the capital- they put together specials according to what's fresh and seasonal. Small place in a beautiful old maltese townhouse. Nice staff, quick service but very personal. Unfortunately they only open for lunch and not dinner (last time I was there), but I suppose everyone has their way of working, and not all are workoholics! I would really reccommend this!

“Valletta's hidden gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

If you want to eat in a place where you certainly WILL have something to write home about....then you should visit Da Pippo's in Valletta. The place is tucked away in a quiet side street but once you manage to secure a table (please do book or else go around noon because the place is always jam-packed) the restaurant is a hub of activity and you will be in for a culinary finger-licking good treat! Service is quick, efficient and ever so friendly....Enjoy!
