Piccolo Padre Trattoria

"The food is fantastic and we are never disappointed"

Piccolo Padre is a family-run pizzeria and trattoria situated in a prime location along the St. Julian’s seafront at the tip of Balluta Bay. The bustling atmosphere and bright decor compliments the traditional stone walls and floors with a terrace that wraps around half the restaurant and is perfect for summer evening dining.  For over 25 years the focus has always been on consistent quality produce, delicious food and friendly service.
Piccolo Padre’s feature is pizza with classic toppings and a selection of gluten-free options from the authentic wood burning oven; try the “pizzotto l’originale” (rolled pizza with sesame seeds, filled with mozzarella, mushrooms, onions, gorgonzola and brushed with honey) as it is a winning option. The Piccolo Padre trio of dips (green pea and curry, hummus and chicken liver and mango chutney) served with warm homemade pita and poppadums is the ideal starter for sharing. For a main course try the chargrilled marinated whole spring chicken served on a sizziling dish or for something different, the fresh lamb and ginger burger. For something sweet, you must try the homemade warm chocolate brownie served with fresh vanilla ice- cream. Piccolo Padre offers something special for everyone
