This was a nice restaurant good service and cool inside! The meals we ordered were ok but certainly not the best we’ve ever had. Went there on the advice of this site. Maybe it was what we chose but we weren’t super impressed.

Tried this Italian-run restaurant once after reading so many positive reviews. To our surprise, we found the food was quite underwhelming, and certainly not up to the standard found in other Italian-owned eateries around the island. Decided not to visit again.

I chose a mixed seafood/fish platter but half my food was not hot and made me wonder whether it was truly freshly grilled. Such a shame as I searched for good seafood restaurants in Sliema-Gzira and this was highly recommended. Would not go here again.
