We waited a little longer for a table so that we could sit outside. The food was good, the staff friendly and efficient, but that wasn't the main reason we loved it.

If you get a chance, throw a bit of bread into the water. The local fish go mad for it and they swarm around it. It's truly breath taking to watch and it is the location of the restaurant that makes it possible to enjoy.

Went there twice during our eight day stay. Their pizzas are the tastiest on the island and for a starter their bruscetta is a meal in itself. Go there you wont be disappointed.

We came across Piccolo Padre by chance, we had tried the Barracuda next door but they were full and judging by the attitude of the staff I am pleased we didn't eat there.
But Piccolo Padre was great the atmosphere was good, the menu had great variety and a good choice of wines all at very competitive prices. The staff were friendly and efficient.
The bruchetta was really tasty and the rabbit was great.
Great value for money. Highly recommended.

The have a wonderfully creative menu in comparison to other restaurants in the area, including the wines. Delightful setting overhanging the waters edge in what seems to be the basement of an old villa or wee fort. We shared calamari and I had smoked swordfish, salmon and leek tagliatelle my partner had Maltese sausage, Gozo cheese rigatoni in a tomato cream sauce. All perfect. Service was not anything to rave about but nothing to complain about either. From the outside it seems quite formal and pricey but the menu is the same price as everywhere else we saw and ate in but the standard was a lot higher. Might go back tonight for our last meal! It would be a mistake to miss this place!

was there with my partner and friends, 2 of whom were celebrating their birthday. I had a pizza and it was absolutely delicious!!!! The downside on the food is that the portions are very small considering the prices. The place is done up lovely with a beautiful view, even though the place is noisy. If you book a table make sure it is by the window or in the balcony in order to enjoy the lovely view.
