Good Italian food and drinks. We sat inside on a pretty small table. All the tables are very close next to each other. Fast and very friendly service.

Visited here with friends on a Saturday evening and had a booking for 9:00pm. Upon arrival we could see that the restaurant was super busy and the staff were rushed off their feet. We were greeted by, I'd imagine, the head waiter and he informed us that our table was not yet ready as there was another group still eating... More

Average quality with poor service. We were made to wait while they set up out table even though it was 80% empty. Food was very average but I can imagine the location makes up for it in the summer.

Visited this restaurant on a recommendation (we have family living locally). Couldn't fault the place at all. Great friendly welcome, given the best table in our opinion overlooking the bay. 5 for dinner at a great price, even drinks were cheaper than we expected. We were given free deserts due to the wait for our main meals which we weren't... More

What a find this restaurant was for us. As vegetarians we are always on the look out for places to eat that show a bit of passion for taste. This restaurant ticked all the boxes and ended up eating there 3 times in the 6 days we had in Malta. Superb tasty food, lovely staff and efficient service even when... More

My first thought was to review this restaurant on merit and location, but it would seem that the management do not like it to be compared in any way to the Barracuda Restaurant on the floor upstairs. This is simply not possible to do, it shares a fabulous location, the food and service at the Piccolo Padre is quite simply... More

The food was moderate, service was good but we saw a dead cockroach under the table. So, after that we could not enjoy our meal
