Nice little place for a quick bite to eat. It is on the way to the tigne point shopping mall and a few mins away to the sliema ferries - great place to eat after some shopping. Generous portions and good wine (also available by the glass). Average prices. good overall

In addition to typical Italian-type dishes, there was an unusual range of menu items with Moroccan and Asia influences. It also serves sandwiches and salads. Outside seating for about 30 customers was very busy on successive days and since it is mainly used by smokers was made unattractive to us. Inside seating for about 60 customers was spacious and fairly quiet, although there were at least two TVs showing (different) music videos, it was fairly unobtrusive. Service was pleasant and friendly, although unhurried. We ate here on three occasions during our stay in a nearby hotel and would recommend to other visitors. Credit cards are accepted and prices are moderate for the seafront location.

I like the salads here mostly. Sometimes the music is too loud and it is too dark . The service is slow so do not go if you are in a hurry it simply does not work. Sometimes we were left waiting for the bill or to order way too much and the feeling one gets is hurry up lets get on with it and the specials are literally pushed in front of you and read so quickly that you do not know what she is saying and the waitress is rarely friendly verging on the annoying . The food is good and reasonably priced and has some originality in its presentation. A restaurant which is a cut above the fast food restaurants in the area. We always go there especially for lunch after shopping.

As we were staying the the Fortina Hotel approximately 200 metres from La Rive, we used to pass this restaurant daily on our walks to and from the Hotel. We found the quality of the food to be very good. It was cooked freshly and arrived hot. The new dishes on the menu we enjoyed immensely. Pasta with Tomatoes and Sausage was exceptional as was the Ravioli with sliced beef and Spinach. Highly recommended.
