This cozy place has a large menu with lots of options. We originally went thinking we were going to order Maltese specialties, but the Italian blue-cheese and pear pasta and honeydew parma ham salad caught our eye. They did not disappoint. Both were very good.

Our first meal in Malta. Small restaurant near our hotel.warm and lovely old charm atmosphere. Quirky lighting and wall art. Tried rabbit for the first time. Eat with your fingers, delicious. Wife had mushroom risotto, delicious. Maltese red wine, surprisingly drinkable. A lovely first time.

We Loved the Maltese Mama! Just a short walk from our hotel in Paceville the welcome was friendly and entertaining! Set in a traditionally styled dining room, abit akin to an Italian trattoria of old, the menu featured such delights as, 'Grandma's Fried rabbit stew'...More

Questions & Answers
Hi Mr.Andy c I apologize for the inconvenience.I checked regarding the booking and I did not find anything under your name.Are you sure you booked to the right website? We open just for dinner so If you were calling during the day No one would be on duty to answer you.That could be the reason no one took your calls.Maybe if you tried calling after 5.30 in the evening, we would have answered immediately. When it comes to leaving a review to a restaurant you have not been to,I find that completely wrong. Myself, as a client and a manager, I would never leave a good or especially a bad review to a place I have not visited.I think that is a bit rude and shady! Please note that the address on Trip advisor is good so it would work perfectly on google maps and google earth. King regards Paulrick Spiteri I
