We were recommended another restaurant in marsalforn but lucky for us it was closed the night we visited so we decided to give la Trattoria a try. We were so pleased we did! The owners were very friendly and the food was great, we both chose fresh fish and it was served with plenty of fresh veg, we also tried... More

Atmosphere and hosts are amazing, very very friendly people ready to help you with almost everything. All in all, this restaurant is my top 3 and I can recomended it to everybody, who is looking...

We visited this restaurant twice , because after the first time it deserved a revisit. Its a nice family run restaurant. The owner is very nice and attentive. Food is also very good, nice starters and good fish. Just lovely. It also had good Bragioli and Chicken maincources. We had home made Tiramisu, was really good but maybe should have... More

You will need to book in advance to get a table on the front side of the restaurant to enjoy the view. But it is well worth it! The waters are the owners, so the attention to detail is second to none and the service is unrivalled. If you want the best steaks in Gozo, this is the place to... More

The service is like one of the best restaurants, and the waiters/owners are really nice. They don't forget the water, bread or salt like other restaurants in town! Service is a bit slow but they seem to cook everything on demand, so it takes a little time. The food is good and not expensive at all, plus they serve free... More

We stayed in Marsalforn for 2 weeks over Christmas 2012 and had a fantastic holiday. We had booked into the Calypso for the duration on half board for one of those weeks, which was 1st class. This enabled us to sample the restaurants around the area. La Trattoria was by far the best.

I had the pleasure of enjoying an early dinner at La Trattoria tonight, before the restaurant got too busy. The restaurant is located between the promenade and the harbour, therefore being an excellent location for people watching as well as having a lovely view of Marsalforn Bay all lit up after dark. Even as a single diner, I was seated... More

Staff are very helpful, they go out of their way to serve you better. Food is excellent and not that too expensive. Although in summer we opted to stay inside as outside was already booked. I suggest you book a day before. Would recommend the daily specialities or the tortelliini with white sauce. For the non Maltese would suggest you... More

La Trattoria had a great location, right on the corner of the front; tables are on the street but raised on a slight platform, and it is a fantastic place to watch Marsalforn drift past. The outstanding thing about La Trattoria was the warm, appreciative service - no second-rate, expendable tourist treatment here, but a genuine gladness you had chosen... More
