A charming Destination

Piccolo Padre is a family-run seafront pizzeria and trattoria in St Julian’s. We opened our doors in 1990 as a pizzeria and panninoteca, serving freshly-baked pizzas and sandwiches. We have spent the last two decades constantly developing our menu to become one of Malta's favourite trattoria and pizzeria. 

Piccolo Padre is conveniently found along Malta’s most popular stretch of coastal promenade: the Sliema/St. Julian’s seafront. We are situated just a few metres away from the prominent church overlooking Balluta and Spinola Bay.

Located in what used to be the maid’s quarter of an 18th century Maltese villa, Piccolo Padre has been tastefully converted to retain all of its original features.  In 1992 we received an award from Din L-Art Helwa for the conversion of this delightful home into a commercial establishment. We are constantly working to preserve this building so our diners may continue to experience its charms.
