I've been there with a friend of mine. The food was amazing and the staff really friendly. Go for the prawns as an entree. They are absolutely amazing and French. The marinade is exceptional.

Had been recommended by family but booking in advance is advisable. Small with some outside seating. Food and service was good. We both had fresh fish of the day. Perfectly cooked and came with fresh vegetables. Will go again.

Have eaten there 3 times since we arrived and had 3 fabulous meals. The whitebait is amazing and we haven't had anything we didn't like. The staff can't do enough for you and we may yet go back again before we leave on Saturday!

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.
