We had another lovely evening at Il Pirata. While their generous tagliata remains a favorite, we opted for pasta last night and enjoyed our selections. I chose the carbonara with pork cheeks which was a special. Truly satisfying! We were also served with complementary focaccia to share, and with lemon sorbet and strawberry cream tarts. The place echoes making it... More

This is one of those restaurants where the food and service is not good BUT EXCELLENT! Sadly however, sitting on the terrace on a cold windy day is so uncomfortable that I could not rate the experience better than average. The terrace is enclosed poorly as there are wide spaces between the plastic windows that allow cold wind to pass.... More

I think Malta can be a bit hit and miss with food. Came across this restaurant and enjoyed my visit. Nice food and wine. I had the chops and my hubby had a steak. We both enjoyed our meal! Definitely worth a visit

I totally recommend this restaurant. First of all, it is very nicely situated in Paceville, near all the restaurant and bars. The food is DELICIOUS ! If you have a chane to go there, order the Linguini allo Scoglio, which are really tasty. The prices are quite high, but the quality of the food is amazing: everything is sooo fresh... More

If you go for the Tagliata you will surely be satisfied. Service is also very good and the restaurant manager was very helpful.

The place was choc a bloc with patrons today being a public holiday. We ordered pasta allo scoglio and octopus salad for starters. The former was delicious but the octopus was not great. We told our server, he told the kitchen, they apologised and deducted it from the bill immediately. They were really professional. In any case, we soon forgot... More
