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.

Food average. When I mentioned this to head waiter he just walked away totally dis interested. If you want a friendly atmosphere don't go... More

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
