“Good setting, good food, no frills”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

We ate here twice on our holiday - the first time we were sat on the balcony over-looking the sea which was lovely.
The menu has a good selection of pizza and pasta dishes - we had a couple of delicious meals here and it wasn't overly expensive. Friendly, relaxed service.

“Good fresh food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

We had fish and Grigliata di Mare. Both meals were fresh and very tasty. The service was OK but nothing special. The part of the restaurant with tables for two was really cramped.

“Fresh Pizza overlooking the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

Visited Piccolo Padre with friends for an early evening Pizza, this is a long standing restaurant in Balluta Bay, and although serves all other dishes the pizza’s are very good indeed.
The setting is perfect overlooking St Julian’s Bay and is an ideal location for families with children.
We each had different pizzas and they were all very good.
The staff were young and friendly and gave the children colouring pages to complete.
Well worth a visit but parking is not good, best to park ikn the nearby hotel car park

“Fantastic Food, Location and Price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The staff and service are excellent; we were seated very quickly and drinks were brought to us almost straight away. Nice menu and very reasonable prices. The restaurant has a lovely location overlooking the sea and has a nice atmosphere.
