Had dinner here, food was beautiful, calfs liver was so tender and cooked to perfection as was the rabbit ravioli. Complimentary lemincello at the end of the meal finished it off nicely. Not expensive and definitely worth a visit. Went for a return visit on Sunday night but sadly don't open on Sundays or local holidays.

This restaurant is Italian and although the food was lovely, we didn't find that the staff were particularly friendly. They just seemed to carry out their job well.

Il Galeone was a perfect spot for dinner on the first night after several hours in planes and airports. Good service and excellent food.

I had prawn and avocado which was done as a timbale and tasted delicious. Husband had a salmon and prawn pancake which was delicate and stuffed with... More

One of the best meals in Sliema, Malta for us. Most places had an ok quality, but the food in the ll Galeone was noticeably better. It's a little more expensive but well worth it, especially for the Gamba's...

Charming on a street of less good restaurants. This is a small restaurant with excellent food. It it tastes like home cooked food. Great view but.. The traffic spoils the opportunity to see the view. I had rabbit ravioli and beef stroganoff followed by profiteroles coffee and limoncello. It was my last night on Malta and I think I saved... More

My Wife and I dined here on a number occasions while on holiday during June 2016. Each time the service excellent and the staff very friendly. Although there isn't a large range of food on the menu, each time it was delicious and cooked to perfection. This a proper Italian restaurant so you won't find pizza on the menu, just... More

I had a pleasant evening at this restaurant on the strand boulevard. We sat out the front of the restaurant, it was less touristy on this part of the strip. We ordered a local bottle of Rose and the waiter brought out complementary olives, bread and bruschetta. For main we ordered chicken breast stuffed with butter and garlic that came... More
