This restaurant was recommended to us and booked in advance. It was superb.
There is no menu ! You are just told what the local fish or meat of the day is. We had a lobster & pasta dish to share. Incredible. The atmosphere is brilliant and the vino flows.
You must book in advance to ensure a table. It was packed on our visit and you leave like you are everyone's best friend. An outstanding lunch venue.

We had the pleasure of a long leisurely lunch at Da Pippos today upon a recommendation from a Maltese contact. No menu or wine list just a choice of the freshest and finest produce on offer. We had fresh lobster, prawns with pasta and were not disappointed. We booked in advance which was advised as many people without a booking were turned away.

If you get to Valetta and have a spare 2-3 hours for lunch try and get a reservation. It was amazing.

Had a local friend book us for lunch while stopping in malta for a day. Superb service from owners that make you feel like a cousin from the states. Best swordfish I have ever had. My wife had some fantastic pasta with seafood. A few espressos and some nice cannoli to finish.

Don't come without a reservation!! Sat here watching everyone without a Rez get turned away.

We have visited twice. Very lucky to just walk in the first time a few years back and had a huge dish of seafood pasta to share between four. Gorgeous meal with great atmosphere and a bottle or two of very reasonably priced wine as recommended by the waiter. We returned later and tried the the veal steaks again excellent. We visited again last year and this time for a pre wedding party. I cannot fault this great little place and a MUST do if you are in Malta.

Da Pippo's was recommended to me and If you want a fine lunch in Valleta then you must visit this Maltese Bistro. Brad Pitt and Angelina we're not present on our visit but love this place. The restaurant is small but this adds to the atmosphere, lots of fresh meat, fish and pasta. Try the lamb chops or the veal and the mussels for starters were 1st class. The staff are busy but look after your every need, once again it is best to book. Enjoy.
