I ate here twice because the menu differed from the usual fare. I went with a local who knows his wine and their wine list was excellent (best to select Italian wine 😊). The owners were delightful and the restaurant tucked away in one of...More

We sat perched in the stairwell with a view of the street for our last dinner in Malta. It was a special occasion and we loved our experience. Very tiny little place, with a tight but excellent wine list, and probably the best meal we...More

Finding this restaurant was a bit of a challenge, but absolutely worth the zig-zag meander through beautiful, narrow streets. The building is charming and the food was delicious. We ate early in the evening. My partner enjoyed her tuna steak with sesame crust and vegetables....More

A really great restaurant run by a really lovely Italian couple from around Venice. It was really good to be in a restaurant in Malta that is really Italian and serves very good Italian cuisine. The menu is quite extensive and the pricing very reasonable....More

I heard about this restaurant from our B&B. We decided to give it a try and I must say I was not dissapointed. There's no possibility to sit outside, but with the fantastic interior that isn't even a problem. The menu is small, due to...More

Great setting and food was good. Would be a 5* rating but for the vegetarian friendly tag; not a single vegetarian item on the menu.

Stumbled upon this and am so happy we did! At first we were skeptical seeing the printed menu that had limited choice but after the first bite of the starter we were quickly reassured! A must try!

Great restaurant, compact and intimate, lovely surroundings, good food and great service. There is a good range of food on the menu and the quality is top notch. Well worth a visit.

The chef is really creative.Lobster Pasta was really tasty and sea bream was unbelievably soft! Even potatoes were sweet! That was our first night in Malta and we're happy that we chose this restaurant! ビルグエリア自体、小路や坂がたくさんあって初めて訪れると分かりにくく、このレストランも例外ではありません。ですので行く前に地図でしっかりと場所を調べて下さい。実際行くと、少し大きな通りから手書きの看板がありました。 店内も小さいと聞いていたので、日本から予約をして行きました。お店はカジュアルですが、味は本物。ぜひ行ってみて下さい。
