Traditional hole in the wall experience. Definately worth a visit.

Read the reviews on here and wanted to give it a try. The traditional pizza is indeed different with potato, cheese as the stable ingredient and other toppings of your desire. The end result is rather a surprising mixture of taste. The crust is very good and the ingredients are fresh and... read more

this is not my first time at maxokk and will not be the last one for sure. When i'm on the island i am always looking forward to try one the ftiras of maxokk. I was never disappointed with the quality and the price is really worth it (ranging from €4.00 to €6.50 or €7.00 not sure). So if you... More

They started decades ago with just the 'gozo cheeselet ftira' which is the gozitan version of pizza. Then they added loads of other options but this remains a favourite. Not worth visiting Gozo without having a take-out and eat it on a view point (also in Nadur). If the size is too much you can reheat in the oven and... More

Although this is a hole in the wall take out only place, do not leave the island without trying their ftira, a traditional Maltese specialty. Bursting with flavor, salty and satisfying. Try the Gozitan cheese, or Maltese sausage. The pepperoni/salami was also very good. Call ahead to order and pick up! Cheap, cheap, cheap as well!

A friend of mine recommended this to me. It was a super delicious pizza. Although the location was hidden and there was no place to wait, but it worth the effort because their pizza was amazing. Definitely a must for every travellers!

While on a walkabout in Nadur, my wife and I came upon Maxokk's bakery. We ordered (our first ever ftira) and returned an hour later to collect it. The smell seduced us so we found a seat nearby and enjoyed our ftira outdoors. It was beautiful: various flavours combined to treat our tastebuds. We enjoyed many more after that day.... More

Maxokk Bakery never fails to impress! It is a family run bakery with a great selection of ftiras and pizzas, all baked with love and to perfection :) We visit each time we go to Gozo..Truly not to be missed :)

Book in the morning to get it by noon. Very good taste and affordable price though there are other competitions nearby.
