We ate at this restaurant on the off chance and found a lovely place run by Sicilians with great food. We ate the sharing plate which was a mix of fish, pasta, meat balls, small pies, meats, cheeses etc etc and it was lovely. A really nice change from the traditional three course meal if you are here on a week's holiday and want a really good change. Nice place, nice people and a lovely evening.

This restaurant was recommended to us and we weren’t disappointed with either the food / wine (mixed starter, pasta with cuttlefish, caprese salad, canolli, maltese rise) or the service. And to have the cuttlefish ink stain removed from my husband’s shirt before we left was something we’ll chuckle about long after we return home!

We were lucky to discover this nice restaurant, on a side street, with a very warm atmosphere and very tastefull food. In fact, here we had the best tuna steak ever and also the cannolli are sensational. The service is also very good, the staff being very friendly and politely. A very nice Sicilian restaurant.

Get a sharing platter, and cannolis for desert. Probably better to book but we managed to pop in and get a table, but I think we were lucky.

This is a great little restaurant and in Valetta one of many semi- subterranean stone walled and arched venues that are very welcoming, if in some instances a little cramped.
The team that run this are from Sicily so there is a lot of Sicilian fair on the menu as well as some more Maltese rooted dishes.
They were really accommodating for vegetarians and there mixed platters are just great. Nice good value wine and advice was also provided.
If I am ever back in Valletta I will be visiting it again!
