We followed the good reviews on TA and decided to have dinner here. Well, it was a disappointment. A tiny starter followed by an extremely small portion of fish. It was supposed to be for two people but I doubt it would actually be enough...More

I recommend Peperoncino to any visitor looking for a nice restaurant. The choice on the menu is ample enough. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and efficient. Eating on the terrace provides one with a nice view of the sea.

Last minute booking for a table outside, which was no problem. Lovely “terraced garden” setting. The whole bream was deliciously fresh. Good service, though a little pretentious. Not able to select ratings; service and value were good, food was excellent.

Situated in an old town house in St Julian’s, Peperoncino has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.Inside is decorated in a traditional manner with limestone walls and elegant décor, while the outside terrace area offers fantastic views over Balluta Bay.The food is a blend of Maltese, Sicilian and Italian with other international flavours merged, so combinations are both varied and interesting.
