Our friends recently visited Valletta and highly recommended Salvino's. They loved it so much they came twice in a 4 day visit. So our expectations were quite high. And we were a tad disappointed. To be fair, if we had just randomly walked in, we probably would have left satisfied. Salvino is the owner and server, comes from Roma. Service was very good, although a little slow, but we were in no hurry so totally fine. The soup of the day was delicious. We also ordered a pasta that was quite good and a fish that was decent.

Salvino's is a small husband and wife restaurant just off the main pedestrian street.
It has a very nice ambiance.
Sandro is the very amiable host and his wife is an excellent chef.
The prices are very reasonable and the portions are large, making it a great value.
The food is simple but creative, fresh and delicious. My wife had pasta and I had a sea bream fillet baked with thinly sliced potatoes on top. The fish was fresh moist and delicious. The potatoes gave the dish a nice creative "twist". The portion was huge. I had a side of perfectly cooked al dente pasta with a basic tomato sauce. Again, simple and delicious and a very large portion for a side dish.
The crusty bread they served at the beginning of the meal was also excellent. We were too full for desert.
A most memorable meal. Highly reccomend
