We had a great dinner, where the owner recommended different courses, beef, fish and seafood.

They provided simple food for the kids which wasn’t on the menu.

Aside from the food we ordered, there were some crostini and limoncello as extra treats.

Great food, wine and service. I would highly recommend it.

We had a lovely meal in L'Artista in St Paul's Bay on Wednesday evening. Food was top quality and the best feedback we can give S that we can't wait to go back. A mixture of dishes all fabulously presented. Service was a little slow but compensated by apologies and quality of food. Prices very reasonable.

Under the guise of various reviewers ... we were here for a simple evening with friends ... We did not regret ... the local and really welcoming takes you back to the Middle Ages ... the owner always with a smile printed and very snappy . Although they have a certain lack of staff I did not perceive any difference ... fast and fluid service despite the room was almost full. We had a glimpse of the kitchen and with great wonder there was only the super fast chef and he was managing all of us looked like an octopus had everything under incredible control and the kitchen was so clean that it looked brand new ... We will be back for sure. ps Try ravioli with pistachio, sea bass with clams cream and a warm heart

A far cry from the previous owner.
Spaghetti Vongole that had 4 Vongole on the top of the plate and spaghetti was immersed in butter. Who do you think you are kidding.
Tagliata three servings were served cold and barley 90 grams per portion
The place was stone cold
Prices over the top
NEVER AGAIN NEVER AGAIN

salve sono dispiaciuto per l'inconveniente se vuole può ritornare e le darò soddisfazione ,però le posso garantire che la tagliata e di 250 grammi che lei ha pagato 21 euro e gli spaghetti sono con le vongole all'aglio dolce e non era burro e vanno 6 vongole in un piatto che costa 13 euro ,non vedo dei prezzi esagerati anzi al di sotto cmq le rinnovo l'invito se vuole .

Never again will I revisit what used to be one of my favourite rest. Since the owners changed this guy needs to understand that we Maltese know our food better than he thinks.
When I order a tagliata all sangue, it does not mean that I want blood on my plate, it means I want my meat cooked rare. Besides the portion of Tagliata must have been 100 grams ca.
When we order seafood tempura, it does not mean that we get 1 shrimp tempura and a lot of veg tempura.
When we order pork fillet medallions and it is left on the plate as it was not good at all, something prompts me to notice that something was wrong.
When I pay good money at a rest, I expect to get my monies worth.
Never again.
