On a weeks holiday on Malta, in April, having had two poor meals and one awful effort, We found the family run Italian restaurant Casanova on the water front in Valletta where the staff were friendly and very wellcoming, the food ,fresh and well cooked and the prices reasonable. In all we ate there three times, sampling the fillet steak, veal(twice), red snapper and sea food pasta. We also had whitebait tempura, Aubergine bake, Carpaccio and pizza and drank Chilien Red and white from Puglia. Both excellent. Very pleasant evenings, we hope return soon.

Good spot to have lunch, also the only restaurant on the waterfront without a 'plastic party tented terrace' so real open air seating even in this time of the year to grab some sun...We had a nice pasta here, service was fine! So was the view we had on a large departing ship with all the hustle and bustle going on. Pleasant spot.

Thie evening I went to eat at Casanova with my gf's family. We booked a table for 16 persons. We arrived at 9pm and ordered at 9.15pm. The drinks arrived 25 minutes later. We oordered the wine which came after a cple of minute and while the bottle was in the ice bucket it was left closed and we had no wine glasses. Till 10.30pm the food was still not served. Whith us we had 3 kids which their oreders where 2 small plates of chips and 1 plate with chicken nuggets and chips. At 11.15pm the food was being served after several complaints. The restaurant mangment was really arrogat and during these 2 hrs we noticed that several tables where being emptied by people which ordered the food and this never arrived. Afterwrds the bill arrived and it showed Eur529 for 4 pizza, rice, maccaroni, 2 chicken, octopus, 2 sparkling water and 2 wine. When we draw the attention of the so called owner as there where Eur82 punched 5 times, she told us that there was a mistake and we enede up spending other 15 minutes watching them doing the bill.

We went there as a group and the initial drinks order was taken quite promptly, but there was immediate indication of total lack of coordination in this restaurant when the drinks were brought twice over by two different waiters!! The worse was still to come. After we ordered the food, it took a full hour for the first plates to be served. Plates were being brought 3 at a time at intervals of 10 mins which meant that when some of us were already done, others were still eating, while one of us had to wait for yet another 40 mins for his food. Of course, he ended up eating alone, when other persons on the table were already paying their share to leave. To add insult to injury, feedback given to the owner was not taken well at all! In fact, he got all defensive and tried to justify the disastrous service. Yes, indeed, the food was of a good level, but the hopelessness of the service does not allow you to enjoy it.
