We walked past Capistrano one night and had a look at the menu and decided to try the next night. We were very pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious, fresh and reasonably priced. I guess you would call it modern Maltese. The service was exemplary and we were given complimentary soup and bruschetta due to our starters taking a while... More

Very happy with this choice. Small place so might need to book, but we got the last unbooked table on a Friday night. Really enjoyed the local specials (Maltese sausage followed by rabbit). Very unfussy, and felt like a mix of locals and various nationalities in there. Would certainly recommend.

We were fortunate to get a table as we hadn't booked anywhere for dinner in La Valletta and we had been turned down by several restaurants. A memorable dinner with incredible attention given in the preparation and presentation of the dishes not to mention the excellent service. The waiter went far beyond the call of duty, not only phoning for... More

Perfect! Small restaurant, few meters away from the main street. The meals are made of fresh, local products. The mozzarella starter was amazing. Then the meat we took was cooked as we asked. We'd love to try the dessert, but we were full already. Thank you to the waiter who took time to answer our questions about the cuisine. Not... More

It was a little difficult to find, but our waiter told us that they are hoping to liven up the frontage which will make it better. The food was excellent and very well presented. We had rabbit (cooked in 3 ways and no bones) and the local fish. Both were delicious. Desserts managed to be tasty and pretty. Good wine... More
