Looks a bit like all the other Italian restaurants, but it is not. Excellent food. give it a try! Very good value for money and your not rushed, also a great place to watch people go by.

This restaurant was recommended to us as we really wanted an authentic Maltese meal. The menu and wine list is full of choices. We had to share a Maltese platter and in all honesty, I could have eaten 90% of the main meal options. Guided...More

The interior is nice, warm. The staff friendly and they pay attention to the customer. Contact is personal and with a hint of humor, if you engage with them. The food was excellent, the daily specials well worth checking out. We had fish for two,...More

This is a traditional Maltese restaurant. The staff are very helpful and took there time to explain the different dishes and show us all the fresh fish on offer. We opted for the fish which came with roast potatoes but these were quite soggy. The...More

Went there twice during our one week stay in Malta. I can only recommend this little gem in St. Julian. Maltese Mama offers you a wide range of traditional Maltese (rabbit) and Italian food priced very reasonably. Although being very small but still accommodating quite...More

Hi Mr.Andy c I apologize for the inconvenience.I checked regarding the booking and I did not find anything under your name.Are you sure you booked to the right website? We open just for dinner so If you were calling during the day No one would be on duty to answer you.That could be the reason no one took your calls.Maybe if you tried calling after 5.30 in the evening, we would have answered immediately. When it comes to leaving a review to a restaurant you have not been to,I find that completely wrong. Myself, as a client and a manager, I would never leave a good or especially a bad review to a place I have not visited.I think that is a bit rude and shady! Please note that the address on Trip advisor is good so it would work perfectly on google maps and google earth. King regards Paulrick Spiteri I
