A wonderfully charming, albeit small, restaurant tucked in one of Birgu's backstreets. Always a pleasure dining here. We´ve been here several times now, and the food is fantastic, creative, and service is always friendly. Definitely one of the top restaurants on the island.

I'm sure many things on the menu are excellent but I've only even eaten the Mussels because they are quite simply the best I've ever tasted. And on this, our 3rd visit to Malta, we were not disappointed.

We visited Osteria early one evening in the off season and it lacked a little ambiance because of this. I can imagine it being bustling and lively during the busy months. That being said the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was excellent....More
