This is an adorable little place featuring authentic Italian dishes. For the best view of St. Julian’s Bay, request a table on the 3rd level. My husband and I enjoyed their octopus in white wine and garlic sauce, their risotto ai gamberi and penne al sugo per tutte le stagioni. Everything tasted great. The service was a bit slow, but they were packed to the brim on the night we were there. Overall, a good experience.

great service, fresh daily fish, but the rest is frozen and microwaved.

There are two review sites for this restaurant, it is so bad, I'm submitting for both,,,,,don't believe what you read here, this is not good, overpriced and dreadful.

Just save your money and don't go.

There are two Peppino's restaurant sites here, same address in St. Julians in Malta.

Basically, went for the view, can't be beat, service was great, food, dreadful.

Ok, the daily catch was fresh, I had sea bream, it was lovely. But starters, steamed octopus salad? Frozen to start, hot and rubbery from a steamer or microwave and awful. I had the seafood soup, all the fish/shellfish in the soup had been frozen,,,,mushy, rubbish.

Ok, so the veg came with the dinner, the dish was so hot from the microwave it did not cool off until I have finished with my meal,,,,,guess what,,,,frozen spinach,,,,,come on.

Just don't go to this place.

A microwave never existed in 25 years of Peppinos existence. Our daily Catch is always fresh. Our Fish Soup is well known and people come for it because its one of the best and not frozen or mushy or rubbish. The person doesn't know between a fresh fish soup and an ordinary fish soup. Vegetables are bought daily and cooked and served under a grill before serving

A typical italian restaurant in the best corner of Spinolas bay, we had diner there two times, first time with red snapper an rabbit, second time with calamari and a fishs filet whichs name I forgot. Everything dressed by the funny dominance of the "padrone" peppino! He is the chef and he shows it!
