Description: The Bianco's Concept There is really one simple formula for success: Pick a concept, idea or project - one that you feel strongly about and that you understand intimately. Then pour your whole self into it, unconditionally. That is exactly what we have done with Bianco's. That is exactly why it works. That is exactly why we have loyal patrons and loyal staff. "Bianco", meaning "White", is what you get when you mix the appropriate intensities of the most vibrant of colours. In much the same way, Bianco's brings together our years of experience in hotel and restaurant management, and our passion for great food, wine, atmosphere and service. Bianco's is variety and balance under all aspects.

“All round excellent experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Firstly the staff were great (although that's a character trait of most of Malta's people); very genuine and warm. Then the pricing was very reasonable (with a basic pizza at 6euros even small budget's could afford the restaurant experience), especially considering it's location right on the bay.
Then, the ambiance was great; music played was upbeat and at the right volume level which are both good for conversation; the interior was tasteful with stonework and original comtempory artworks; it was well patronised, as who likes sitting in an empty restaurant?; it wasn't too cramped; and had large 'people watching' windows right onto the busy street that's on the bay.
And of course! The food and wine we had were excellent. The basic cheese and tomato pizza, at 6euros, was delicious, large and served well. The rabbit pasta dish was just excellent, rabbit bing a national dish there (but be aware the meat was on the bone) and was yet a cheaper price than other places that were nowhere near as good on taste;The 'light' pizza was without cheese so you had a choice to cut out the heavier fat. They do a range of pasta and pizza... a sea food selection and other meals which we didn't try.
The wine we chose was, again, reasonably priced for a restaurant at 12 euros and was excellent. A fabulous chenin blanc. Especially considering a poor bottle is often sold in England for equivalent of 17euros! It was served chilled, placed in a cooler in holder beside the table, poured to taste and poured fully.
I and my friend went back and would recommend Bianco's.

“Good Italian Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Good food and good service at a reasonable price. Would happily return here again. Try the farmhouse pizza with figs and Maltese sausage - it is very nice.

“Service let this visit down.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is nice inside, the food was good however the service was a big let down. We only required a main course. After 40 minutes the waiter decided the kitchen had lost our order, therefore it took an hour for us to get our meal . On the reorder no side dishes came. Whilst waiting they did present us with a free Brushetta. We asked for a tap water to have with the meal and were told it was no good so a bottle of water was brought. At the end of the meal on the bill the water was charged, this was either€3.50 or €3.90, we disputed this also. Please be careful when ordering water. Such a shame the service was poor as I'm sure this could have been a better review.

We found this restaurant on our first night of seven and were so pleased we returned on 4 more occasions. Good selection of food; excellent local wine, topped with good service.

“Very good pizza & good venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

This place is always busy but the service is great and the food worth waiting for! Wine list is also well priced..may be a bit too loud on certain days. Big screen available for football fans. Also good for nibbles with friends. Highly recommended!
