“A very good alternative”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

We were looking for a decent restaurant which served pizza and pasta dishes around Valletta. The menu appeared to be quite comprehensive, and dishes well priced when compared to other restaurants in the Valletta Waterfront area. Our pizzas were very well cooked and well presented. The ingredients used were clearly superior to usual pizzerias in Malta and overall we were very satisfied with our choices.

Being a Saturday, it was very busy but the service did not feel rushed. The waiters were courteous and except for a few hiccups, we found them to be quite efficient. I suggest reserving a table because we saw a few people being turned down.

We dined in the outdoor seating area so needless to say, the atmosphere was magical.

“Kitchen does not match front of house”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

Place is let down by amateurish serving staff. Pity as food is exquisite. A tad overpriced and eating pizza there feels like you are being downgraded as you are even given lesser quality wine glasses.

Great staff & lovely food. We opted for the A' la carte menu since we had visitors from abroad. Divine mussels, rib-eye & dessert! Will definitely return.
