A lovely small restaurant and being run by a well prepared Italian family.... food is typically Italian style and they have a very friendly and well English spoken waiters.... as to billing I have to admit that it is quite fare considering you're in the capital city...the portions and also a very comfortable service.... surely a worthy to taste

A large number of Italian restaurants have opened in Malta recently and unfortunately some are only Italian in name and not quality! Yet, Salvino's is in my opinion an exception. The menu us rather small yet I see this as a positive thing as it's manageable and the quality is always good. I have eaten here a number of times... More

I shouldn't have to say I made the wrong choices in a restaurant. I ordered Buffalo mozzarella salad to start and it was a bed of iceberg with 3 large balls of mozzarella and cherry tomatoes, enough for 3 and the cheese was not top quality. Seafood risotto for main was dry and more like rice than risotto but plenty... More

A very well managed Italian restaurant with good food and service. The prices reflect the quality but are affordable and less than similar restaurants in the area.

Food was great. Since we are Maltese we had pasta. It was fantastic. We wish that we had a little bit bigger portion but still fantastic. Waiter was great and helpful. Great staff!!! Well done and keep it up.

Attracted by the great sounding seafood menu, but a bit put off, as there were no diners inside. Recent Trip Advisor reviews were very good, and they mentioned new management, so decided to take a risk, and booked a table for the following evening. On arrival the restaurant was again empty, but after that things could not have gone better.... More

We jumped in this small restaurant by accident before a business meeting nearby. A pretty family run restaurant where you can enjoy an authentic and genuine seafood. We ordered a selection of starters suggested by the owner and a Paccheri pasta dressed with fresh tuna... just divine.
