We ate here a few times, both lunch and dinner. Their baguettes and wrap are fantastic value for money, but the main reason I kept going back was the chocolate fudge cake....mmmmmm

Lovely atmosphere and really friendly service, they even made up a packed lunch for us when we were going on a day boat trip.

Can thoroughly recommend you visit if you're in the area.

This cafe' is a definite favourite when we stay in St Paul's Bay. It offers a fine selection of snacks and sweet pastries. The coffee is really good and the service is always friendly and efficient.

Considering how close the ties with Italy are here, there is some very poor coffee served on Malta. You can relax here, you are in good hands. Fantastic coffee a fine choice of wines and some of the best pastries. What is unique is the atmosphere - friendly, chatty and warm.

This wonderful place serves a simple menu, however, the food and wine are delicious. We live in the area, and decided to give it a whirl....well,,,,, so very glad we did. The first time we had the Falcon Merlot, a local wine, which was, and always is, delicious, with Carolyn my wife having a tuna salad and me a divine smoked salmon wrap salad.

When they took our order, they asked if we would like water for our doggies, which we thought was so caring and thoughtful, and it came in a new silver doggie bowl. Our food and wine came, and then lovely treats for our two doggies as well, which was so very nice, and suffice to say, Vino and Holly now love Silvio the owner :)

If you live here, or on holiday, we cannot recommend Silvio his staff and Capriccio highly enough. Wonderful caring service, generous portions and served with big smiles too. Oh yes, and if you want a decadent treat, although we didn't have it this trip, a lady said the carrot cake is to die for.

Great value. Full bottle of Falcon Merlot. 2 bottles of Perrier. Tuna salad. Smoked salmon wrap and salad... wait for it........ only 21 euros. This is a cosy place to really relax in with nice views from the terrace to the colourful Maltese boats in the boat yard and the sea. It's not a traditional romantic candle lit kind of place, or a place for big groups, this is simply a lovely café, but on happy pills... and that makes it special :)

So if you are local, your dog is very welcome to come with you. My thought is that if people like doggies, they are good people and everything they did for us was fantastic. Well done Silvio and team, and we will be back soon. Thank you very much.
