I visited Papannis one evening in early January with my family and had the most perfect meal. We were made to feel welcome and the service was friendly and extremely efficient. The food was outstanding and reasonably priced. If you like Italian food then Papannis is definitely worth a visit.

Very nice ambience. Pasta with seafood was tasty and served in good portion. The carpaccio was excellent and dessert was OK. The two waitresses are incredibly nice and professional. We really enjoyed it.

As main we both took a medium cooked tuna steak which was simply delicious. The setting was very warm, situated in a quaint narrow street in Malta's capital, in a comfortable sized and very old (yet nicely... More

Papannis Italian Restaurant has really good dishes even for vegetarians. The best thing for me were the deserts. They brought all the available ones on a plate so we could look at them before ordering. Nice treat.
