The pastizzi from this place are amazing. Four flavors: chicken, pea, ricotta, anchovy. All are delicious and not too salty. €1.40 for all four !. We will be coming back.

This Pastizzerie is the best. We arrived , found it totally buzzing so decided to come back to see what the fuss was about. So glad we did- three pastizzi and two glasses of coffee for 2 Euros! I had to get the price repeated!...More

These are the best pastizzi we have had since we arrived here - very fresh too. They also do ftira and some other local delicacies. Great place for a snack lunch. You can take the pastizzi away and eat them in the nearby park too!

In many guide books but ,as a visitor ,you feel you are not that welcome. Locals get served ahead of you. Go instead to Santa Lucia just down the street .

Good food and good price. We ate everything in the palace! and go back to order again. You have the food freshly made out of oven, nowhere can compare. The milk tea also taste good with the food.
