Set by the sea with excellent view. Pizza is good and service was nice. Cannot complain and will return. The only issue is parking.

Great selection of dishes to cater to every taste and mood . The calamari starter , the pizza , the paella and the ravioli all stand out as favourites. Great view on the outside balcony terrace overlooking Balluta Bay

This is a really lovely restaurant - it has an outside terrace, which was closed when we visited as it was quite windy, but the inside was just as lovely - all cream stone walls and rustic furniture. Serves your usual Italian fare, but does...More
