A new Grana is open in Valletta and we tried it out! 😋

A new Grana is open in Valletta and we tried it out! 😋

If you have already heard of Grana, a restaurant situated in Gzira, you’ll be excited about this. If you haven’t heard of it yet, you’re in for a treat, especially if you’re looking for Italian cuisine in Malta! 👌

Grana has recently opened its doors in Valletta, accompanying The Cumberland Hotel. Knowing (and loving) their restaurant in Gzira, we were thrilled to make our way to their new location. 😍

Beautiful interiors

The new Valletta restaurant is just gorgeous. The ambiance is relaxing and it’s nicely decorated. It has a sort of natural beauty with a touch of local history. One of the waiters mentioned that the building itself is over 200 years old! 👀

But you’re probably more interested in the food, aren’t you? 😏

A feast of Italian flavours!

Grana focuses on Italian cuisine, serving some truly authentic Italian dishes with the freshest ingredients. 🙌

Cocktails at Grana.

We got a few drinks to start with.

We kicked off our dinner with a non-alcoholic welcome drink which our waiter very kindly offered us. It consisted of strawberries and orange juice and it was a super refreshing start to our evening. 😋

Have you been to Grana?

For starters, we opted for the Burrata e Prosciutto Crudo, Carpaccio di Carne, and Tartare di Salmone, all of which were nicely plated. I have to admit, the salmon tartare was probably my favourite of the three, served with a gorgeous beetroot puree that really gave the dish a lovely contrast of flavours as well as colours. 🤩

Our starters looking fantastic!

Onto our mains - Rigatoni alla Carbonara, Agnolotti ai Funghi Porcini, and Pancia di Maiale. The latter was probably the star of the show; a slow-cooked, tender pork belly on top of a creamy bed of potato puree. The Agnolotti were also incredibly flavourful! 🤤

An incredible and varied menu is waiting for you

The ones we had are just a few dishes from the menu. Starters, crudi, pasta dishes, meat, fish, burgers, salads, a kids’ menu - you can find all of these at the new Grana. Unlike the restaurant in Gzira, the one in Valletta does not serve pizza, however. 💔

But don’t worry, the selection is incredibly diverse. In fact, if you’re a person who finds it difficult to decide what to eat, we suggest having a look at the menu before you go. And if more than one dish catches your eye, just head over there with some friends who won’t mind sharing, get a few different dishes, and make a feast out of it. 😎
