“Best food in Valletta!”
Reviewed 18 May 2012

La Rosticceria is one of the greatest places in Malta. The food is always fresh and excellent. The best part is, the people who run it are the most friendly on the island.

The menu changes daily, but you can always order filling chicken wraps and salads for under 3 Euros. Drinks cost an additional Euro, so Rosticceria will not break the bank. This place is not to be missed!

“Best Hidden Gem on the Island”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

While studying in Valletta, it didn't take long to find out where my everyday lunchbox would be. La Rosticceria is an outstanding Sicilian style walk-in, take out restaurant that recently opened a dining area in the upstairs (I've since left the island since they opened upstairs). There was nothing more one could request for in an afternoon lunch: great home-cooked food, outstanding prices, and the guys who ran it are the friendliest that you will meet. A chicken wrap that was simply fantastic is only 2.40 euro. Salads were around 2.50 euro (I don't quite remember exactly, but for quality and value I have never seen anything like it). The owners put on a celebration on their own dime for the graduate students too just because that's how they are. They are great guys and one of the reasons that I miss Malta. I could not imagine going back to the island and not going to La Rosticceria.

After trying the famous chicken wrap or whatever Chef Gianni has in his imagination, across the street you'll find Valletta's best pub, known as for its homage to its regular the late actor Oliver Reed. The Pub is a hole-in-the-wall with decor that is half British Navy and half Ollie Reed.

The Pub isn't related to La Rosticceria, but you can't meet more welcoming folks than the guys at the restaurant and couple that runs the Pub. It is a must for visiting Valletta.
