Had a lovely dinner here with my partner. We both had a delicious pasta dish and we found the price to be reasonable and the service - friendly.

My second time there and it always gets better. Pasta is divine and the tiramisu is to die for. Also the Manager of the Restaurant goes out of his way to make the best experience ever. Will be back !!

This is the definition of the perfect neighbourhood trattoria. Warm environment, homemade cooking, friendly service. Add to this great prices and a perfect central (yet off-centre) location and you've got the picture. Loved the fact that everyone in there seemed to know each other!

Great salmon and zucchini lasagne, creamy and well cooked, crispy tuna and potato courgettes and a very nice tomato and local goats cheese salad with very flavoursome rocket. The local wines were a good accompaniment. Friendly attentive service.

It's definite now. Every time I am in Valletta, I go to Salvino's by La Pecora Nera (Cucina Romana). The welcome smile of Sandro, the quick wave of hand of Francesca from the kitchen, the calm, quiet atmosphere welcome you. The food is "as mamma...More
