“Finally!”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

After a weekend of horrible meals in Malta, this restaurant was the saving grace. We randomly stumbled upon this place and I am so thankful. Its a quaint, small Italian restuarant with quality food and service. The server recommended a wine that was fabulous, and I ordered the gnocchi for dinner which was amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant if you find yourself in Malta.

“A Mediterranean night out”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Thank you Tripadvisor reviewers for pointing us in Peperoncino's direction.

We felt welcome from the moment we arrived, and any fears that we might be neglected, a bit out of the way on the mezzanine floor, proved unfounded. The service was attentive but not over the top.

I had read one review which was very dismissive of the suckling pig so I was a bit uncertain when my wife chose it. I needn't have worried, "melt in the mouth she called it," and the bit of crackling I stole was lovely. My own Peperoncino chicken was strongly chilli flavoured (as described on the menu), generously portioned and tasty.

This was a very good evening meal to end our Malta trip.

Went to this restaurant on 4th Jan 2014 after reading all the lovely reviews. The whole experience was wonderful, the food & service was excellent and if I visit Malta again I will definitely be going to this restaurant again.

“Nice setting but worth sitting outside”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Nice setting and good service for our group of 9. Decent food and wine although not outstanding for the price. Good selection of fish and nicely but plainly cooked with big portions for all dishes. Rustic decor inside but recommend sitting outside for view of harbour.
