Our group of seven people had gone to Giannini's because we heard that it was one of the top restaurants in Malta. Our experience was to the contrary. Yes, the view is spectacular. It was very warm and we had to ask that the ac be turned on as they wouldn't open the window (bugs). The mushroom soup was tasty. The risotto was crunchy and tasteless - the rice was not properly cooked. Two people in our group ordered lamb which was very fatty and undercooked (raw and bloody). They mentioned this to the server who said she would tell someone. When we received our bill we were rather surprised to see that there was no adjustment considering that the lamb was inedible. Even worse was the fact that there was no apology for the poor quality food. We were further shocked when a pretentious waitress brought our change and wanted to argue that we hadn't told them about the food. Very poor form, I'd say. If there is a problem with food in a restaurant and the staff apologizes then I'm willing to give them a second chance. I would not recommend this restaurant. There are many other restaurants to choose from in Valletta.
