Called in on the seafront for lunch. Had the Vongale and also Sea Shells with Taglitelli (prawns & mussels). Both were just excellent and the service was pleasant. We were not hurried at all and washed down a bottle of Green Label white wine. A perfect way to enjoy a few hours in the middle of the day.

Visited on a quiet Tuesday evening this place does do the best fish soup. The pasta was excellent not overdone and the staff were very helpful. All in all a very pleasant experience and good value.

A Sunday lunch with the family was perfect here! They even provided a high chair and took away the pushchair. Great fish dishes, I had the local Maltese soup and the Sugo Nero pasta with cuttlefish ink!!

Lovely little restaurant. We had a great meal. Tasty and well presented. My son felt like pizza and they kindly organised him one from the restaurant next door. The waitress mad a wine suggestion and it was ideal for the meal. Good food at a good price
