Besides the view, there is nothing. The staff is unpleasant, nervous, it seems to us that they don't want to be bothered by costumer.

I was invited at Palazzo de Piro for a dinner meal with a company. I enjoyed the 4 course meal they offered. The food tasted very good. There was a selection as well for those who are gluten intolerant too so I could enjoy the meals. The staff did a good job at serving as well. In my opinion all... More

The Palazzo de Piro is right at the back of Mdina, just down from the famous tea gardens. Pleasent staff and coffee were on order, with amazing views over Malta. Ordered two burgers (€19:95) which were average. Drinks were fab at €3 for a cappuccino and €2 for a pot of tea.

Look for the little cubby hole with the small table which is great for couples or 4 people We had teas, coffees & cake which were great! Less busy than the crazy Fontanella, but same excellent views and service.

Felt rushed by the waitress who stood over me while I made my choice. My husband ordered the lobster ravioli which was on the menu as a starter. When we got the bill he was charged more than the price on the menu. When he queried this he was told he had had a main course portion though the waitress... More

As far as I can remember on visiting Palazzo De Piro more than once is their lack of customer service. They never have enough staff to serve the customer or for that matter enough chefs in the kitchen. The last being last Sunday when we visited the place at 2.15 we were informed that our coffee or tea could not... More

This beautifully located palazzo boasts lovely views of the surroundings. What we least expected was the poor quality of food ordered. We only visited for coffees and teas but I can safely say that they even managed to get their cappuccino wrong. The cakes were definitely not worth the calories. my lemon cheescake tasted of one of those cheesecakes you... More
