“Great food, service and waterfront view”

I ate here twice and both times were very good. The pizza, calamari, and local wine were top notch! The service was good and restaurant was clean. Definitely a must try.

“Great view and pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

I went twice to piccolo padre and the view is amazing. The first time we had a table over the sea and the second time unfortunately we sat inside but still a nice setting. The pizza and the starters are great but we ended up being too full to eat a whole pizza. Would definetely recommend especially if you are on a tight budget.

“Much Better than Expected!! Fast Service :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

We went to Piccolo Padre for my brother in law's birthday, the restaurant is designed beautifully and you can also have a sea-view view. We were 7 people and everyone ordered pizza and also ordered some shared starters, the starters were brilliant and we wished that we ordered more ;) Order of drinks was very fast and also food came very fast, it was a busy night but the service was amazing...

Staff were very kind and also checked on us to see that everything was ok and pizza was delicious, one of the best I've had I must say :) In about 1 hour we got drinks, starters and main course and were ready, fastest service I've seen in Malta!!

Will surely go again and highly recommend going to Piccolo Padre :)

“Good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

At Piccolo Padre restaurant you get Good Food and value for money. The pizza is very good and very enjoyable with a bottle of wine. Also try the spare ribs which are also very good. It is situated overlooking the sea and also has a balcony over the sea. Friendly staff and helpful too. We enjoy going there in winter and in summer.
