Authentic Italian style
The decor offers a glimpse into true Italian style, with ceiling lamps that hang down, shelves filled with books, statues as well as authentic tea from Sri Lanka. In another corner of the restaurant, there is a high bar with high bar stools as well as a big window where you can get comfortable and relax with a meal or drink while watching the busy life of Paceville unfold in the street outside.
The dominant orange colour, which makes one feel at home is reminiscent of the Aperol Spritz, Italy’s famous cocktail. There is an entrance that leads onto the patio, where the orange hue from the inside is echoed through the use of giant umbrellas. The umbrellas offer much-needed shade from the sun, especially during the warmer summer months,
The restaurant is open from 8 am until late, and is ideally situated to offer breakfast to the tourists from the adjacent hotel Vivaldi. Caffeteria Milano offers small food portions, made with high-quality ingredients, which gives the meals an authentic, homemade taste.
The restaurant serves the unique and original Gnibru, a Maltese brew made with Maltese botanicals. What adds to the rarity of the Gnibru, is that there have been only 150 bottles produced and Caffeteria Milano has one of them.
As summer intensifies, more cocktails are added to the menu as well as new platters which come along with the drinks. The platters can be complemented with cheese, cold cuts, olives and a host of other delicacies. Caffeteria Milano offers a place to enjoy all this while soaking up the sun or viewing the stunning Mediterranean Sea.
