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.

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.
