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 were able to have dinner at this restaurant and were looking forward to it after the reviews. Not quite sure what to make of it. It was Easter Sunday and they’ve been very busy for lunch so perhaps just a long day. Service wasn’t...More

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

Returning visit after 3 years and not disappointed. Amazing food and staff very accomodating for a fuzzy vegetarian. Vegetable roulade and swordfish ravioli starters were amazing. Excellent value we will be back.

Not sure why this restaurant isn’t in the top 3. Tucked just a few metres just off the main drag we were so pleased to have stumbled across this Maltese gem. Arrived around 8.30 and the restaurant was nearly full. Hadn’t booked but I guess...More

I thoroughly recommend seeking out this small restaurant. The food is delicious and is excellent value for money. Staff are attentive and the place has a lovely ambience. I very much enjoyed the vegetable roulade starter followed by the perfectly cooked sea bream.

Visited this lovely, cosy place and were very satisfied. Staff is friendly and unobtrusive. Food is incredibly good and prices are more than reasonable. Whether one opts for a quiet romantic dinner or a group gathering, one cannot not visit this place. The suckling pig...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.
