This tiny casual bar and cafe, hidden away in a side street, was only identified from Trip Advisor. No menu or pricing: you get a selection of what they have; a starter of antipasti including cheese, cured ham, olives and stuffed arancini balls was delicious followed by a large piece of sliced beef (not identifed but very good) on a salad for myself and a pasta dish for my wife all washed down by copious amounts of Sicilian Chardonnay.

This being our first meal on our first visit to Malta, the 110 euro bill was we thought on the high side. A week later we knew that in terms of comparative values with other far more accomplished restaurants in the area it was indeed very expensive (Hilton Blue Elephant 175 euros for four!)

The food was very good without being exceptional, the service was also very good.

We arrived about 3 for lunch to find the kitchen was closed. However the delightful waitress advised there were arancini balls and other food options ready to serve. A couple of very tasty arancini balls (they were big) and an interesting mushroom sauce filled crepe later with wine and coffee we were dining in style and watching the passing rainstorm. Thank you for your help.

Located at the heart of Sliema this restaurant is an attractive point for all people who want to taste the real Italian cuisine. From appetizer to dessert all dishes are perfectly prepared by an high level chef. Wines choice is a very long list of best Italian products, mainly from Sicily. A great variety of coffees and spirits complete the restaurant offer. Staff is very friendly and professional.

Cute little spot in Sliema. Only a few tables and no menu, but super charming. The food was delicious, I have been telling everyone about the tortellini with spinach cream and pistachio, and the magnificent salmon we had there. Would definitely go back.
