We stopped in for dinner on a Friday evening and decided on pizza. We were seated quickly and served just as quick. The service was professional and had a sense of humor. The pizza was very good and the drinks were very cold. the location is perfect, smack in the middle of a busy shopping area. The prices were very... More

I have often eaten outside this restaurant. In January we went inside for a delightful cup of hot chocolate. We returned later for a meal. The restaurant was busy so we went upstairs and were served with excellent, reasonably priced food. The artefacts around the room are interesting and we listened to soft Beetles music throughout the meal. The loos... More

We were in Valletta on a cold January evening when not many places were open so we were grateful that Luciano was there. The service was average; the food here was our weakest link during our stay; it was edible; functional yet tasteless.I went for the spare ribs I ate them and out. My companion went for their pasta and... More

Luciano;s has a good location and better service than many of its competitors in the centre of Valetta. The food is cheap but cheerful and good value. It has a good range of drinks but unfortunately no draft beer.

The title says it all. Right next to the cathedral of St John (which is spectacular). I had the ftira which was very good and a glass of the house wine was fine. If you want a casual lunch in the centre of Valletta then this place is just fine.

I came here with a group of 9 friends and really enjoyed the food. We all had something different, I'm not sure what mine was called now but it was traditional Maltese and delicious and very filling. The staff were polite and friendly and we all had a great time. Thoroughly recommended
