Description: Giannini is a family run restaurant since 1988 and is an excellent place to have lunch or dinner when visiting Valletta. The restaurant is situated above St. Michael's bastions with vast views of Manoel Island and the pretty Marsamxetto Harbour. The third floor of a typical Malta townhouse, reached by lift from the ground floor lounge bar, has been converted into a delightful restaurant. Giannini tends to be popular with locals for business lunches and romantic dinners giving it a casual but discreet atmosphere.The cuisine is a delicious blend of Mediterranean food. Fresh fish is available daily (ask the host) and you should also consider the daily specials on the board. The a la carte menu changes according to season. A rather comprehensive wine list is also available to complement the meal.

Visited in May with friends having read reviews on trip advisor.

Amazing food, four of us shared a sea bass which was beautifully cooked and filleted in front of us.

Staff very accommodating and friendly. Would recommend.

We ate our last dinner in Malta here and it was very nice. The location interesting being at the top of a town house accessed by a lift, but the view from the dining room is superbe. The service is attentive and efficient and the food of excellent quality.

The food we had here was excellent! The views were amazing and although the restaurant is a little off the main street of Valletta, it is quiet and nice. The views and the service were perfect.

Possibly in the summer it doesn't look too off but when we went there we almost decided to turn around because it was just a quiet area.
The food was good but we ordered off the sea food they showed to us on a tray. I ate only about half of it that too doused in lemon and salt because I didn't like it very much and it was very expensive.
