We ate here once during our stay and didn't go back. The food was expensive and too plain for our taste. I requested chicken with chilli and there was no chilli in it! The service was good.

Walked in on a Sunday evening and were lucky to get the last table for 2, friendly and quick service, excellent food and romantic but cosy atmosphere. Highly recommend. The best food we had on Malta and well priced.

Great service, interesting menu but above all excellent service and quality of food. Well worth a visit. Loved the traditional style and had a very good seafood risotto starter and grouper main course. Recommended.

Saw the TA for this restaurant was good and booked a table in advance, and what an excellent idea as is was very busy and people were being turned away.

We had an outside table in the alley which was ok since they had the infra heater on. We had a very tasty soup of the day followed by a large portion of crevettes together with a good white wine. Altogether a satisfying meal.

We went there for dinner and were seated straight away, although we had made no reservation. It was clear that the stuff was doing its best to make us comfortable. There were some interesting dishes outside the menu, and we particularly appreciated two of them: ravioli with rabbit meat filling and pork meat in wine juice. The cook seems to... More

This is a nice looking italian restaurant. I ordered the Chicken breast filled with figues that was very ordinary. Nothing special. I would suggest trying the fish instead since my neighbouring table seemed very happy with their seabass. Service was friendly. Wine suggested by the waiter was really good.
