I took my Italian friends to Piccolo Padre and in fact we have enjoyed our night! We were a table of 6 people, and took some starters and then pasta, pizza, and some meat dishes. Pizza was not of a trattoria standards, whilst pasta was amazing. My friends took special octopus pasta of the day by the advice of our... More

Malta is not the best place if you are looking for high standards costumer service so I was not expecting the best restaurant in the world. Place is cosy and well decorated but: - cold service, but they really try hard to understand what restaurants etiquette is. They have to visit Milan more often - spent 30 euros for bottle... More

We were a table of 18 people, and all the staff waiters seemed very pissed to have to deal with such a number of people. One of the waiters asking us for drinks seemed to be in such a hurry he wouldn't even listen to me when trying to tell him to get the water at room temperature. We didn't... More

Me and a friend of mine ordered a pizza and ceaser salad.the pizza had a wet base and dough wasnt cooked properly and overloaded with cheese. The ceaser had chicken that looked like it was boiled in water with some old lettuce and a soup of 'ceaser dressing'

Excellent little restaurant with nice decor and cheerful staff. Very good and cheap menu, similar to a pizzeria. It overlooks Sliema balluta bay and with good sea views. It is pretty cheap and central to town.

Had lunch with on Xmas eve and it was the worst experience we ever had. House wine had undissolved sugar at the bottom of each bottle. Meat was inedible : hard and over cooked. We complained to the chef who was sitting right across from our table and he didn't even bother coming over to our table to explain why... More

We came here for a company dinner. We came early and the place was almost empty, they kept us more than 45 minutes waiting for the food, pizzas and salads. The waiter came across as a bit rude, nevertheless the food was good and the view is awesome!!!

This is a GREAT place for Italian food and a view! Prices make no justice to the great food, service, and ambiance which makes it even better. They make all their pasta at the restaurant and dessert are as good as the food. Been here several times along this year and can't get enough of it.

Table that overhangs the sea, able to watch the waves swirl about below. Very friendly and helpful staff, who gave us info about the pleasant background music. Early evening seems to pose no problem in terms of speed of service.

This was obviously very popluar restaurant, and was packed when I visited on a Friday night. There isn't a great deal of room between the tables, so after a meal, I didn't want to linger over a coffee. The chairs are also stiff and upright, so I was quite happy to move on after my meal. The food was delicious... More
