Piccolo Padre Restaurant

Piccolo Padre Restaurant overlooks the enchanting bays of Balluta and Spinola in the old seaside village of St. Julian’s. It was set up in what was once the maids’ quarters of a grand 19th century seaside villa. Lovingly converted to retain the original old stone walls and fittings, and furnished with Maltese antiques, this restaurant welcomes guests with its characteristic Maltese charm.  

Tucked away beneath one of St Julian’s prime landmarks – the fine-dining Barracuda Restaurant - Piccolo Padre is easily one of the most popular destinations for delicious fresh pizza, pasta and grill dishes in Malta.

In fact, Piccolo Padre is a name synonymous with tempting fare, the focus being firmly on ingredients – the team use locally-sourced, in-season items whenever possible. The menu is therefore bursting with scrumptious delights. These include Piccolo Padre’s renowned pizzas, pasta, salads, perfectly-cooked meat dishes and seafood.

Additionally, this restaurant offers a menu aimed specifically at the more health-conscious, with lower-fat pizzas and salads that are still bursting with flavour. Plus, as Piccolo Padre now delivers, patrons can enjoy any of its delicious choices in the comfort of their own home.

Meanwhile, the restaurant itself enjoys a rustic setting with a welcoming atmosphere that will always make you feel at home. In the warmer months you can enjoy views of Balluta and Spinola Bay from your table – so close to the sea that you can actually watch the fish – while in winter you can relax on the sofas by the open fire.

All this underlined by gracious service and wrapped up in a family-friendly environment, making Piccolo Padre the ideal choice for any casual get-together.
