A few nights ago a waiter friend - Leonardo from Roma) recommended we try Salvino's - an Italian eatery in Archbishop Street - and we are glad we did. Sandro Pietrini welcomed us - we had a Campari Spritz as an aperitif and in the quiet ambience of an interior ristorante - not out on the street - my wife had a lasagne of mouth-watering deliciousness (I know because we always share our dishes) and a mixed green/tomato salad - while I had a fried calamari dish. Superb. We had wanted a local Maltese rosé but the cellar for that was bare. Sandro recommended a Rosé d'Anjou from the Family Bougrier of the Loir-et-Cher region which is the ancestral home region of my sister-in-law's mother. We noted other couples - locals as well as tourist travellers such as ourselves - and several family groups (all French-speaking). We have booked again for lunch to-morrow!

Great salmon and zucchini lasagne, creamy and well cooked, crispy tuna and potato courgettes and a very nice tomato and local goats cheese salad with very flavoursome rocket. The local wines were a good accompaniment. Friendly attentive service.

It's definite now. Every time I am in Valletta, I go to Salvino's by La Pecora Nera (Cucina Romana). The welcome smile of Sandro, the quick wave of hand of Francesca from the kitchen, the calm, quiet atmosphere welcome you. The food is "as mamma used to make"! Delicious and finger licking, cooked there and then for you. The desserts are mostly home made, and you can taste the difference. Recommended!

Positive
+ centrally located in a unique former wine cellar
+ perfect temperature/ AC setting
+ friendly service
+ you can look through the glass front into the kitchen but since there is a glass front you are not bothered by the stell
+ pasta if the day was very tasteful
+ free sorbet sample before dessert

Negative
- overrated and overpriced for what you get in the end (I payed 15€for an octupuss salad, at the time I was there the restaurant was listed #10 in Valetta, so expectations were fairly high)
- my salad​ unfortunately was still sandy
- the food was not served at the same time (delay of only a few minutes)
