“Simple, good value for money and uncomplicated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

I visited by chance while attempting and failing to go to another restaurant in the neighbourhood. The exterior is a bit garish but the food is surprisingly good and innovative. We had a fresh mussel and bean soup for starters which sounded strange but worked out fine. For mains, I had an excellent rib-eye steak cooked to perfection while my companion had a thinly sliced meat dish that he hoovered away before you could say "Jack Frost".

This is not destination dining but if you happen to be in the area then this place will serve you well and without fuss and with spare change left in your pocket. A good deal all around!

“Vincenzo il maestro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

I was there during X-Mas and New Year 13/14 and eat about 5-6 times there. The best of what Italian cusine has to offer. Cooked and served to the absolute perfection. Meat, fish, pasta dishes or self made desserts were among the best ever tasted ! No cheap pre-made food.

Vincenzo, you are the Best !

love to come back just for your food

“What a surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

Looks like a coffee shop but then… ask Chef Enzo to just prepare you some food.
I did it and went there three times in one week.
Enzo can make fish talk to Angels.
Not to mention his Ricotta mousse with Nero d'Avola gelatine on top.
Simple, fresh, just amusement for the senses.
The restaurant might not be fancy, but it is made for real connoisseur of food.
This place is now a must go if you are in Malta and wanna experience the true Sicilian food experience.
