I would highly recommend this restaurant. From start to finish it was perfect. We were extremely lucky to get a table as we hadn't made a reservation and there was only one small table left, so I would recommend to book before hand! There is the option to sit outside (it was a little cold when I visited so it... More

I have been to a lot of restaurants but only here I am astonished after each experience. Peperoncino is passion and simplicity combined. Staff is attentive, well trained. You see that the staff and cook are enjoying there job. The menu could maybe be a big bigger.

The only negative thing about it is that sets in a strange location, other than that it was a surprisingly good dinner (went twice) with great service and the typical Maltese stone that makes these restaurants unique and very Mediterranean.

We found the place accidentally looking for a free table in a busy evening and weren't disappointed. Very good food, selection of vegetarian dishes, fresh fish to pick, yummy soup of the day. The interior is interesting and staff very professional. Thank you! We may be back.
