Founded in 1565 by the Order of St John as a refuge for soldiers returning from the Crusades, Valletta is now the capital of Malta and a piece of living history. With an unsurpassed collection of original Baroque architecture, fortified city walls overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, and the spectacular Co-Cathedral of St John, which features intricately carved stone vaults and a famed painting by Caravaggio, it is no wonder that this smallest of European capital cities is a world heritage site.

My first visit- table booked in advance- friendly helpful service and advice, lovely laid out table- excellent wine list too. The food was without exception excellent- recommend the rabbit, also the lamb shank- vegetables excellent- not over cooked- and served beautifully too- no rush no pressure a real concern that one was happy from the staff- oh and the Deserts look pretty good too. Not surprised they were turning away people who hadn't booked!

Got here by chance, left with a smile. First I was amused by the sign, then liked the atmosphere, an stayed for a beer & a snack. Great choice of craft beers and snacks. Only the snack needed quite some time, but it was really...MorePleased you appreciated the sign baontheroad. No disrespect to Guinness, it’s a great beer and a great sign and I wanted to use it.

The recently refurbished restaurant is situated in the heart of Valletta under the new Parliament plaza. Today, under the leadership of Chef Steve Mamo they lead their dynamic team in providing dishes with a modern and classical touch with all flavours staying true to themselves. Salvino's offers an extensive list of Italian wine, featuring rare vintages and other sought after selections which complement Steve's carefully crafted dishes, in addition to an outstanding dessert menu.
Starting from Valletta City Gate behind Triton Square its a 550 m walk or short of 10 minutes along Republic Street to Archbishop’s Street, where Salvinos restaurant is situated. Halfways along Republic Street you’ll pass on your right the square in front of St John’s Co-Cathedral and at the end you pass the guards at the Palace Armoury. Turn left into Archbishop’s street and the first restaurant on the left is Salvinos.
Salvinos is an Italian restaurant and had an extensive menu but when chef Franscesca said they had a special of the day “stufato di manzo” I ordered that. I believe that stufato is a variant of Scotch Collops. The big pieces of beef were tender and slow cooked to perfection. The meat was accompanied with potatoes and carrots in a sauce that tasted heavenly. I felt and behaved like a kid mashing the potatoes in the sauce and finally I suck up the very last of the sauce with bread.
To go with the main course I had bread, sparkling water and a glass of red wine. I finished off with a double expresso. My dinner was well worth the bill of 27 euros. I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner and when next in Valletta I will be back straight away.
Please try Salvinos and I bet you will love the food and the friendly service.

Lovely unpretentious atmosphere in this excellent gin cocktail bar. The staff really know all the 220 gins and have great suggestions. They are knowledgeable, welcoming and friendly. Alexa, from Canada, is a mixologist extraordinaire. Seek her out for a great cocktail.
Tapas is delicious here as well
Don’t miss this bar!!

Life is short. Time is a precious gift and we should make the best out it. At times, we find ourselves reminiscing about the past, or thinking too much about our future. These both extremes may impede us to live and enjoy today. Our restaurant aims to give our diners the opportunity to stop time for a moment, and enjoy a carefully prepared meal in a serene and elegant ambience. The menu at Adesso is seasonal, and our dishes are made from fresh and high quality ingredients. Our Soul The name of our restaurant (which means "Now") represents the motto to live the moment, or in other words Carpe Diem (definition on hover). To truly enjoy the "Now" we believe time should not be an interference, so to represent this state, we removed the hands from a number of carefully selected clocks. We look forward to seeing you at our restaurant.
We were so impressed. The restaurant provides the perfect setting with excellent service and attention to detail. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly with a sense of humour. The food, well there really aren’t words to describe the food. You simply have to go and try it for yourself. Will definitely be back!

Sotto pizzeria italiana, rising up a72 hours, a mixture of selected 4 flour to eat the real Roman pizza. Sotto pizzeria italianaSouth Street in Valletta, 32.
If you visit Valetta it would be a shame if you wouldn't visit Sotto. One of the best pizza in the world. Best ingredients. Beautiful interior. Kind and easygoing staff.
We tried one with pork cheek and parmigiano and one with Parma ham. Both outstanding. Delicious. Perfect.
And then tiramisu, light as the air. Perfect end of fantastic late lunch.
Highly recommended experience.
