As always, eateries in Valletta through the lunch period are always busy, Ranieri being no exception! We have eaten here in previous years, our recent visit was happily with the same good service, and tasty food at a reasonable cost.

Waiting service needs improvement.. Forgot our drinks until we had to ask again when the food arrived and they lack customer service. Haven't had to wait for the food very long though. Decor needs some upgrade. However, as for the food, good palate as always.

We stopped here by chance for lunch, the food was good and inexpensive for the Valletta city centre, but it took a long time to come. The Maltese pizza was actually very good, well cooked and with interesting local ingredients.
