This restaurant is after getting new owners the pasta was bland and way overpriced for what we got could just be teething problems but not great.

Food was great especially slow cooked veal with saffron rice was perfect dish. Spaghetti is little bit too boiled but it was tasty.

Absolutely loved this cute little restaurant. Set in a gorgeous stone building. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the food is even better! Well known for their sucking pig, and no wonder why, it’s amazing! Highly recommend.

We couldn’t get into Wiji’s but the hotel concierge recommended we try Peperoncino. There is a bit of a clamber upwards to get into the restaurant which also has some outside tables but the welcome was warm even if we were mistaken for a wedding...More

Situated in an old town house in St Julian’s, Peperoncino has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.Inside is decorated in a traditional manner with limestone walls and elegant décor, while the outside terrace area offers fantastic views over Balluta Bay.The food is a blend of Maltese, Sicilian and Italian with other international flavours merged, so combinations are both varied and interesting.
