Da Pippo is a quaint restaurant on Melita Street in Valletta. It might seem like a quiet little tavern, but behind the typical Maltese doors lies a world of cheer, friendliness and a seasonal menu. The walls are plastered with photography to remind the staff of their esteemed customers – a clear treasure in their restaurant ethos. The vibe and energy at Da Pippo is contagious; by the end of the meal, the entire floor is playing along with the servers and appreciating their genuine care for their restaurant.
This unique establishment does not feature a menu. Not for food, wine, nor dessert – the patron of Da Pippo sources fresh, seasonal ingredients that inspire the variety of dishes available for that afternoon service. New produce is brought into the kitchen on a daily basis promoting fresh and seasonal quality food with minimal surplus. Their selection varies from local meat cuts to fish, shellfish and crustaceans all prepared to create tasty, well-cooked food. Dishes such as the beef fillet tagliata, lobster ravioli, or calamari fritti, are some of the inspired dishes that diners can enjoy. Save room for homemade desserts and be sure to ask your server for their advice on food quantity and wine selection.
