Lovely restaurant with an excellent terrace giving fine views of the harbour and to watch the world go by! Never had a bad meal - and we have had many as we holiday in Malta every year and visit this restaurant at least 3 times during our stay. Staff accommodate every wish and they don't mind a couple sharing if... More

Happened to drop here while we were trolling at the saint julian's. The pizza was very good, atleast to my vegetarian taste buds. 4 stars only for the good pizza.

The restaurant was empty for most of the evening so it lacked atmosphere. The food was good and the service. We had fish which was reasonably priced.

Horrible lunch Not hygienic, not cleaned floors, flies everywhere The pizzas were just normal, I do not see how this place could win the competition for the best pizza.

This place is my favourite place for pizza on the island - the pastry is just divine and the choice of toppings is large. They have several other things on the menu, including some really nice pasta choices. Very often they have fresh local fish to choose from as well. All prices are reasonable and service is fine, with Antonio... More

We were attracted by the place and by the fact that all the people working there are Italians. After waiting a little bit too long for the drinks, we had French fries and still waiting the drinks, we had very good food. Pizza was very nice even if the do not have a wooden pizza oven. One of the Sicilian... More

The Giardina Italiano restaurant, in Dragonara Road, Paceville, Malta was our favorite restaurant during our stay in Malta. The pizzas were so good that I had to have one almost everyday and the pasta dishes - all kind of italian/sicilian specialties - were my husband' and son's favorites even their simple spagetti alla bolognese! Their sicilian wines are also recommended.... More

The airconditioning wasn't turned on, the food was tasteless and uninspired. The waitress was rude and clearly not interested in serving with a smile. There were a few tables on the terrace. Too bad there was also the entrance to a cheap apartmenthotel with a lot of youth who were running between the tables to get to the door. They... More
