“Fresh Roman-Style Food Without Much Flavor”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

This three-month old restaurant is directly across from the Old Theatre. The ambiance in this narrow, stone-walled space is poor. There is an entry level and a lower level with a few tables and an even lower, darker space where the restrooms are located. The restaurant has a mildew order and isn't very pleasant for the eye. While the owners, originally from Rome, were friendly and welcoming and the food ingredients were fresh and nicely prepared by the Roman chef, the food lacked flavor. Every dish was boring and bland in taste. Even adding more cheese to our lasagna did not do much to boast up the flavor. We opted not to have dessert so cannot comment.

Désolé, il n'y être apprécié dans notre restaurant. Juger un restaurant "Cucina Romana" par une lasagne avec sauce faite surtout pour ceux qui sont végétariens, c'est un peu comme aller à Disneyland et ne pas prendre la photo avec Mickey Mouse ..... mais merci quand même des commentaires!
Merci de zéro sei trattoria romana Valette

“Excellent food, even better service!”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

We had the pleasure of visiting Zero Sei by accident when wandering Valletta's old town. Malta is full of Italian places, so we thought it would be just another throw away tourist food affair. We couldn't have been more wrong!

The service by the owner was fantastic! He took the time to explain any dish we had questions about. I had the gnocchi, and my girlfriend had the lasagne, both of which were phenomenal. We also shared the tiramisu for dessert, which may well have been the best one I have ever had.

All the pasta is made fresh "in the Roman way", and you can tell instantly. Certainly the highlight of my trip to Malta. If you go, look for our little board with the Northern Irish and Belgian flag!

“Great pasta and wine”
Reviewed 2 March 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed three excellent plates of pasta and some great wine here. However the starters were too small, too fried and too expensive and I won't fall for that again. But all in all this is a great place and the hosts go out of their way to make you feel welcome.

“Trattoria Romana Valetta”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

What a great welcome and a wonderful meal.The quality of food and wine was first class and authentic Italian. The passion shown by the owners in providing a friendly service/atmosphere and quality food was second to none. Three of us stumbled escaping from a very rainy afternoon and felt immediately at home. What could have been a dreary afternoon turned into one of warmth and enjoyment. I could eat here every day!
