La trattoria

We ate here on our third evening and went because we are fond of Italian food. What lovely staff, who made us very welcome. It was very busy with many Gozitans, so knew the food would be good.

We were looking forward to our meal here, with the upper floor outside view of the bay, but two of our three meals were served not hot and the steak was very tough. The chips arrived when we were more than half way through the meal but at least they were hot. The waitress asked if everything was good and... More

So pleased we found this place - have been back a couple of times now. Food always delicious and service very attentive. Run by a charming married couple who always give you a warm welcome.

We went there with the 5 of us. So many choices of mouthwatering food so we ordered a lot. Their food was very nice. The owner was very sympathetic while serving us.

Having eaten here for over 20 years through owner and name changes there is no doubt that this has been one of the most consistent and reliable restaurants on the island. Small enough to get personal attention but large enough to have a veranda that overlooks the bay and a decent sized dining room should the weather be less pleasant,... More

We went here to sample the fish with a group of friends! There were four of us and the waitress took us through the entire fish menu with a chart explaining all about each type of fish. We ended up getting a sea bream and a sea bass and sharing amongst the four of us. The fish was expertly cooked... More
