Have been here on several occasions and this family-run restaurant never disappoints. Always warmly greeted and the service is always exceptional. The food is top notch and truly mouth watering. What strikes me most about this restaurant is that the food is not pre-cooked but...is freshly prepared when ordered. This leads to truly delicious food where you can taste the freshness - and this makes any waiting time worth waiting for. Well done to this lovely family who made this a great place for an amazing culinary experience. I highly recommend!More

This place is great! Atmosphere is chill and cool and the staff is also really friendly. They know what they’re doing and what they’re talking about, and you can tell making the customers happy is their main priority. Food is amazing, some italian classics and...some twists. Super and highly recommended.More

Nice service and facilities however the meal was ruined by the quality of meat, there was SO MUCH fat on the steak that it was uneatable, the response from the owner is that ‘some people like the fat’ Very disappointing paying for an expensive cut...when we only ate 1/4 of it. I would avoid this rude restaurant at all costs. Edit: The restaurant has since blocked me on Instagram after I shared my experience.More

Da Luigi is found in the outskirts of Rabat and hence has panoramic views of a large part of the Malta North. From here even is sea is visible and you can imagine the view. This was the second visit as first was more of...a party lunch. This time it was a family visit. We ordered a starter and I recommend the Lobster ravioli. All starters tasted excellent. As mains we mainly took ribeye and talgiata. All four of us very very enthusiastic with the meat taste. Abundant meat and veg was also served. Hosts are very warm and supportive. Well done. Desserts were not bad but sure if i had to mention an area of improvement this would be it. Otherwise all was perfect and they have made me a return customer.More

I was recommended to visit this restaurant by one of my colleagues. Both the rib eye and the tagliata were served to our liking. The staff was courteous and attentive to our needs. It was a one hour and a half wait before we were...served. But it was worth waiting for. Unfortunately sweets and coffee prices were not listed on the menu, and both prices are a bit on the high side compared with other restaurants. It was an overall positive dining experiences at Da Luigi a small cosy restaurant in Rabat.More

Absolutely a gem in Rabat. Not easy to find however as this small restaurant is in a narrow street departing from the main road fully in road works during our visit. We did not book but were lucky benefiting of other’s last-minute cancellation. The restaurant...was full, obviously appreciated by local families. We were warmly welcome by the managing lady. From our table at the window, we had a magnificent view on Mdina. Our order was taken rapidly but we had to wait little bit before the food arrived as we were the last guests arriving and this is a family-run restaurant with the owner/father operating nearly alone in the kitchen. The food was fantastic. The presentation, the taste, the service... everything was perfect. The staff was very efficient and friendly. The Covid rules were fully respected, all staff wearing the mask as well as the guests when moving in the restaurant. This is a superb place in Mdina, inter alia the presence of local people demonstrating its gastronomic and warm human value. A gem not to miss in Mdina. Booking strongly recommended !More

There is absolutely no scope for bad name. Freshly cooked food and not reheated is the best yummy and healthy option and Da Luigi never failed in this. This is not a fast food outlet, this is a gourmet silver service... More
