We found the place accidentally looking for a free table in a busy evening and weren't disappointed. Very good food, selection of vegetarian dishes, fresh fish to pick, yummy soup of the day. The interior is interesting and staff very professional. Thank you! We may be back.

We dined here on our first night and experienced superb service with very good food, although be warned, the portions are huge!! Nice traditional Maltese restaurant with a good atmosphere.

We stumbled across this restaurant on a midweek night so it was relatively quiet. The service was excellent as was the food. The staff could not do enough for us. Best restaurant we ate in during our week long stay.

Visited for the first time and had such a great time. Customer service was excellent with full explanation of the specials and visuals of the fish of the day. The recommended wine was excellent and honest, had such a wonderful meal. Certainly would return again 👍

One of our top two restaurants during our week-long stay in St. Julian's. The setting is perfect, food and wine excellent and reasonably priced compared to other alternatives. Service was also top-notch.

It was a Sunday evening dinner with friends. As is usual Bernard and his team gave us a superb evening dining experience. There were four of us, we all had something on the menu which we liked. The evening was relaxed and not rushed. The white wine was well chilled, the red wine at a good room temperature. All in... More

Very attentive service, authentic feel to the place as we were looked after, given choices of fish and offered very good wine. Good ambience in this traditional building, no frills, just right for a meal for two

Peperoncino is a nice local restaurant, suitable especially for a nice, relatively fancy dinner. The service is very friendly and helpful, they explain the dishes etc. BTW, as a vegetarian not eating seafood, you can expect two to three main dishes.
