A lovely local restaurant serving amazing food..not a big selection, which personally I think is always a good sign and the waitress Audrey, is amazing and super helpful. Already booked another dinner for tomorrow..she had to turn 6 people away whilst I was eating.

Very good food, I strongly suggest the tagliatelle with the cuttlefish black ink. Amazing! Very good choice of wine and beers.

Food was nothing special, as the electricity went out the staff didn’t bother to come and ask us if we wanted to continue as it was during a heat wave and there was no ac in the restaurant due to power cut. The attitude from...the staff was appalling and after we told them a million times we don’t have cash they were repeating to come tm to pay but we told them a million times we are not going out of our way to accommodate them given they didn’t even do the bare minimum for us. They did not have revolut which at this day and age is a disgrace to not have some source of external methods to pay. Food was cold and nothing special don’t waste your money.More

I went during a heatwave in summer. My friend specially asked for a table in the ac. He said it’s no problem and gave us a table. The ac and electrify went out and instead of fixing the problem they did not care and proceeded...to lie to my friend and say it’s a problem of the whole block. When we went outside everywhere had electricity. Furthermore, there were people outside waiting to be seated and he ignored them for 20 min and when they wanted one extra chair they didn’t even have any. A restaurant should not have any extra chairs. What if one breaks ?? Do you kick the person out !!!!??!! We had to eat in the heat, no discount, no candles. Then we didn’t have cash to pay and they said card machine was broken (didn’t even offer an online banking alternative living in 2021 and during a pandemic when cash is discouraged !!!!!!!). We paid and left never coming again. DISGUSTING ATTITUDE.More

I've eaten in many different regions in Italy, and although you can tell the pasta was fresh, there was nothing special about my orecchiette at all, with the portion also being rather small. My boyfriend also noted that the kitchen was heating up bread which...was bought from a popular supermarket in Malta (which I will respectfully not mention its name) to serve with customer's antipasti, hence the bread was totally not fresh, which is not something you would expect from an authentic Italian place. We were also fairly surprised to be charged 48 euro for 2 plates of pasta without appetizers and with just 1 dessert and 2 drinks (not wine of course). The bill consisted of a written note listing down the dishes and drinks we ordered and the total fee and it did not have the price of each item listed down. I know this is something some Italian restaurants choose to do but upon doing some mental maths, the bill still made no sense and it was evident that we were being overcharged. Service could also use a little bit more warmth.More

This gorgeous small restaurant in Valletta offers authentic Italian food using fresh ingredients. There are lovely antipasti to choose from , the pasta dishes are delicious and the Calabrian wine divine! One can also find great meat and fish dishes. One must finish off with...one of the mouthwatering Italian desserts! I highly recommend this place and the owner and chef Giorgio will definitely make you feel at home!More

We made a point of visiting the restaurant the day before to make a reservation for the following day & specified outside. My husband called an hour before to check the time of the reservation & nothing was said. We returned for our reservation to...be met with denial initially & then told they only had inside. She did acknowledged she’d made a mistake but did not apologise or offer any alternative. Her attitude was one of complete indifference to the customer I’m sure the food is good but we will never know …,More

Very tasty food!!! Very friendly staff. But at the time of doing the math, they were not accurate and clear in the accounting of the dishes ordered. So at the end was a sweet and sour experience!
