We had originally planned to go to another restaurant, but since it was full, we started to browse around the Sliema strand. We saw Tentazioni and it appeared very nice on the outside. Since it was night and cold outside we decided straight away to sit inside. Inside it looked very simple with some mild decorating. It was not so... More

I have to say that Tentazioni is one of the best restaurants in Malta! The perfect food at reasonable prices, amazing Italian atmosphere, welcoming staff and excellent service. There is a very good wine list. Big choice of fish and seafood. Fantastic pasta! Everything was really delicious. Moreover this restaurant has elegant, unique decor. I hope to visit again soon...

Highly recommend this restaurant as you can choose your fish fresh from the counter. The staff are super friendly and we ended up singing with guitars and had a fantastic night. The food is excellent as is the wine and coffee.
