“Lovely Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014

This is our second visit to the restaurant and on both occasions had a lovely time. We visited over a weekend and although it was very busy we were seated within a few minutes. Drinks order taken quickly and waiter on hand to order when we were ready.

There is a nice atmosphere and lovely views in/along the Bay. Like this place so much we are coming back in October (when we get married) with all of our guests.

“Pleasantly surprised.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014 via mobile

Attended with friends having been disappointed by the food at a neighbouring restaurant. The food was so good that we came back the next night. The staff were very attentive and helpful and we had two great nights with good wine.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

Went here on the recommendation of two people. The setting is great and the man behind the bar was attentive and helpful, after that very little positive happened. The place was very busy and we did not have a booking so we felt fortunate to be seated within ten minutes. Unfortunately it took close to 30 minutes to have our order taken, the manager took our order, made zero apology for the wait, and made us feel as though we should feel lucky to be there. The starters arrived promptly, they were fine, nothing special. Then it was another 25 minutes until our mains arrived, like the starters, they were fine but, again, no apologies or acknowledgement of any sort that we were largely ignored while there. Did not bother with dessert- no guessing how long that would have taken. My friend and I are are pretty easy going so the fact that we left there as annoyed as we did does not speak well of the experience. Would not recommend.

“Somewhat overpriced...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

We arrived here based upon a recommendation from a friend, we were certainly surprised by the poor service. There seemed to be a lack of communication as nobody came to take our order for 30 minutes after we were given a menu. We ordered a mixed antipasti to start, I personally was rather impressed by the short waiting time, however I was very disappointed by the food. It was cold, slimy and tasted like it hadn't been cooked that day.

Then came the main course, I ordered the pasta sheets with a tomato sauce and mixed seafood. The menu stated a cost of €9. It came and was divine, very tasty, very fresh, piping hot. Then came the bill. What we hadn't realised (because no one had mentioned it to us) was that having a pasta dish as a main course bumped up the price by double, meaning that 3 pasta dishes had cost us little short of €60!

Overall the service wasn't great, the food was good and the atmosphere was OK. There are certainly better places to eat in and around St Julian's (such as Gululus next door). Personally I would not eat here again because I care about customer service and more importantly, price!

“Nice but Expensive Italian Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

Perched on the second floor, with a great view of the bay and an appealing decor, this restaurant should have the elements of becoming a favorite for visitors to the area. The reason it doesn't is presumably its pricing policy - looking at the menu, with a "copperto" and a minimum per person charge, the diner quickly becomes aware of the mercenary nature of the place. As they say in Italian: "pecato"!
