We went for dinner on Monday evening, very good service and the food was very tasty. We had the suckling pig and the fish of the day, both cooked very nicely! Would definitely come again!

We came here during a long weekend break to Malta. The food was beautiful, freshly prepared. We both had chicken which was plentiful. The vegetables were also beautiful and fresh. The staff made us feel very welcome, especially John. We will certainly return here again.

A second visit to a small but charming restaurant. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and the food was excellent. I had to go for the suckling pig (sorry, little piggy) and the Maltese-style roast potatoes. Yummy. Would I return? A big YES from me.

We spent 4 days in Malta and we went there twice! One of the best places i've been. The kitchen is exceptional, there is a very good wine list and the stuff is amazing, polite and very friendly. I recommend it without any hesitation.

We had lunch on Xmas Day, great food & service, very nice place, used to be a grocery shop, exposed beams, and natural stone. Well worth a visit.

Situated in an old town house in St Julian’s, Peperoncino has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.Inside is decorated in a traditional manner with limestone walls and elegant décor, while the outside terrace area offers fantastic views over Balluta Bay.The food is a blend of Maltese, Sicilian and Italian with other international flavours merged, so combinations are both varied and interesting.
