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.
