Well positioned on the waterfront, the staff dealt well with a group of us and for the most part, we had pleasant food and wine. Not as delicious as Gullul but still a nice night out.

Food here was standard Italian, large portions and reasonable prices. But nothing worth booking/queuing for. Does the job adequately which is probably preferable to some of the other pizza places on this strip.

My boyfriend and I went here and really enjoyed it. The restaurant is right on the ocean so we had a great view. The staff were really efficient (it was really busy!) and welcoming. We ordered sparkling Maltese rose, pizzas and a platter of dips. The wine was really reasonably priced and tasty, the pizzas were large and tasty ( I had a wholewheat dough base which was really nice and not something I've had before), When we visit again I will definitely go back.

Didn't fancy my chances of getting a table for one on a busy Saturday but was told there may be a 20 minute wait and was invited to stay in their comfortable waiting area.
Shortly, my name was called and I was shown to a table along with an apology that it was indoors!
I chose the rib eye steak with potato wedges and side salad washed down with a half bottle of La Valette red wine. The meat was tender and the wedges were crisp.
The atmosphere was lively and buzzy with music to match. Head outside if you want quiet and romantic.
Service was very attentive and friendly and the waiters were the most attractive I've encountered in St Julien's.
Go early to guarantee a table. People were queuing down the steps by 8.30.
I passed several empty restaurants en route to the Padre so they are clearly doing something very right.
