The pasta was very tasty (one with rabbit liver, the other chicken and king prawn) if a little pricey. But you get what you pay for. Very busy, lots of locals, always a good... More

This is an attrctive place with a friendly staff and a large menu. My "Maltese Pizza" ("Maltija Pizza") was good, with chunks of Maltese sausages. Prices quite moderate.

We dined in this restaurant with another family, both with young children. We had linguine marinara, burger tal-kaptan and another burger for a gluten free child. Good food, excellent location and great service.

Stunning food! Gluten free options! The waiter checked twice that I could eat the meal. We could take our time, not rushed at all with the ordering or paying the bill.

We've been to this restaurant many times in the past but our recent visit will be our last. Food was ok but nothing to write home about. The foreign guy who took our order didn't bother writing it down and got the wrong drinks. When told he should have written the order he answered back. The waitress excused herself on... More
