We ate at this restaurant twice when we visited Malta and loved the food both times. It is a busy place so booking is a must if you want to eat at a reasonable time. If you are a small group ask for a balcony table ... beautiful on a perfect Summer night.

Came here as part of a group. Staff were friendly and polite. Food was great, I had lamb which was excellent. Also lots of traditional Maltese dishes which were lovely. Wine choices were good and the price was reasonable for all that we ordered. Recommend.

Seated by the window overlooking the harbour- fabulous views. Staff were friendly and attentive. Decor is lovely and food was delicious. The pasta is served quite el-dente. Plenty of customers for a mid week evening. The restaurant is slightly cold but the food and service make up for it. Tasty food and good service. I would recommend the Pappardelle Prawn,... More

We had dinner twice in the restaurant with my family. Chef is very good. I tried the special pasta and could say the mixture of tastes was very fine and delicate. My daughter and my husband tried four different types of pizzas and yes, they were very-very good as well. Compliments for the Chef. Bravo.

Called in at the Piccola Padre for dinner during a recent Holiday in Malta, it shares a great location with the Barbuda which is a much more presumptuous and expensive restaurant based on the floor above. The food and the service were both really first class and the bill was about 50% less that I have paid on visits to... More

We ate here a few days before Christmas and was offered a complimentary mulled wine on arrival. We both had lamb burgers which were delicious. Our only complaint would be that the finished plates were just left on our table despite many of the waiting staff noticing them.

We booked Christmas lunch at the Piccolo Padre and i would just like to say a big thank you to the staff at Piccolo Padre. The food and the view was great but the jolly staff, Christmas songs and party crackers made our day special and helped end our fantastic trip to Malta on a lovely note. If your around... More
