One of the nicest places we had dinner. Charming service from the manager and his staff, with delicious food. The pecorino cheese basket was to die for, as was the suckling pig! The only negative thing I have to say is that my appetite failed...More

Easy to see why this restaurant is so highly rated! The staff were charming and the food was delicious. We particularly enjoyed the specials for main course. Definitely worth a visit when in St Julian's Bay.

Situated in an old town house in St Julian’s, Peperoncino has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.Inside is decorated in a traditional manner with limestone walls and elegant décor, while the outside terrace area offers fantastic views over Balluta Bay.The food is a blend of Maltese, Sicilian and Italian with other international flavours merged, so combinations are both varied and interesting.
