Upon first entering the staff were happy to assist and showed us a range of food options and their recommendations. After buying the food I did not receive my change, they claimed they forgot I had given them €20 and not €10. They were nice...enough and quickly rectified this. I got a chicken wrap which was full of bones and leaked all out of the packet, very poor. I would recommend the pastry options however.More

I have been to Dolci Peccati, Balluta, Sliema, three or four times, but I will never go back. The service is just TERRIBLE! Waiters, or to be more precise, waitresses (one in particular!!!), do not know the meaning of the word "kindness". They ignore you...or keep you waiting for ages, and they are always incredibly RUDE! It is a shame, as people in the kitchen do a good job. I would suggest owners should train the personnel before clients decide to leave this place for good.More

I love this place, their coffee is amazing, the atmosphere, view, music etc & the workers are so friendly. However there is one women who is the most friendly & easy going out of all ,they call her Lola , I enjoy going there every...morning just to see her passion about work ,she is so enthusiastic & let you love the cafe for real ! ♥️More

The food is good. However each time I go there I wonder how rude and careless a waitress can be. When I somehow betray myself and dare go again (because the food is good), the waitress is even worse than the time before. So now...I have decided...the service here is simply too bad. Not worth it.More

There is nothing good I can say about this restaurant. I ordered an omelette that comes with chips and toast but I’d asked for salad instead of toast. I got dry toast, dry salad and a sort of omelette. The waitress walked off before we...could point out it was wrong and ask for some seasoning/dressing. My partner ordered a breakfast that looked absolutely nothing like the picture, barely identifiable. This restaurant obviously doesn’t care about repeat business. Or their customers in general.More

Great Italian fare in St. Julian’s! Everything in this restaurant is made from scratch. This includes the pasta! The owner was very nice as was the staff. The arincina were great!

The food and dinks are good but the service is slow and they always try to charge you more. If you go there, ask for the bill and check it with the menu prices.

Arrived to a rude and unwelcoming reception, the tables were dirty, the toilets were filthy and when I moved a table that was not in use I was told off like a small child and told that I should have asked first. I would have...asked had someone have even come to talk to me or take my order but I was ignored, first time that I have made to feel unwelcome in such a place in sliema, not normal and not nice.... Dirty dirty dirty...More

I like the location and the place, as well. I enjoy being there on the terrace, usually in summer. The coffee, cappuccino and food are good. The prices are reasonable. The service, I don't know, to be honest. I´m not really convinced with the service...because the waiters don't care about giving at least average services. In my opinion, they should improve their level of service because they have high qualified competitors. I´d go only in case I can´t find another option available in that area.More

Has nothing to do with Sicilian pastry quality. Sweets may look nice but taste not good. We took rumbaba which was totally soaked in rum and out of 3 types of mille fogli only one tasted ok.

We had several breakfasts at Dolci Peccati and my difficulty was to choose just one or two items per day! Everything is so tasty, so well made I just wanted to eat it all! Croissants and bagels are great, and the baklava is to die...for!More
