“Poor service”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Food was cold and not value of money. Service was busy and arrogant. Vine was expensier what we order. Octobus was like a rubber. If you want good food and service in Sliema you can find lot of other choises.

“Chewy lobster”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

We were not sure what we wanted to eat so went by the waiter's recommendation for a lobster with linguine. Presentation was very nice but from the first bite we were very disappointed as the lobster was so chewy that we could not eat it and the pasta tomato sauce had a very strong flavor that overpowered the delicate lobster taste and gave us both heartburn. One waiter came to see if everything was ok and we tried to explain but he laughed it off thinking we were joking. Then finally it dawned on them that we left most of the meal there. They said they will talk to the chef and offered us a complimentary liqueur or coffee but we could not be bothered. Asked for the bill which came at full price. Not a problem but will not return.

“Better than I expected”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

Most people when raving about Tigne Piazza offerings are talking of Cibo or Fratelli Di Buffalo, so I thought this place would not be as good. On the contrary, it is fantastic! Have been twice now this month and the food is top notch, so fresh, good honest food, cooked the Italian way. I would recommend the fish, both the swordfish and tuna were lovely. The wine menu is extensive and very reasonably priced. The service was perfect. First time there we had a lovely chatty, young lady who was great. Second time a knowledgeable man who too was focused in customer service. Not pricy. Nice location. The restaurant itself is a bit of a strange casual feel with strong lighting.
