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

Run by husband & wife this place offers traditional food in nice surroundings. Staff were fantastic and the food was excellent. Lovely fresh fish. Husband took time to explain ingredients and cooking methods when asked, which was great. If you like fresh local food this is the place.

Even in a powercut this small, family-run restaurant gave us a memorable meal. Attention to detail was immaculate, despite the difficulties that the owners had to contend with - just generator power and a very full, hungry restaurant! Our food was delicious and beautifully presented - a lovely evening!

This was the first meal of our holiday in Gozo and we really enjoyed it. There was complimentary dip with garlic bread and local crackers and a local liqueur at the end of the meal all the food in between was excellent we really enjoyed it and will visit again.

We visisted Marsalforn for the third time this summer and as always, our favourite is this restaurant. The owners are so lovely and helpful, the food is delicious and the portions are really big. I loved their pasta dishes, but the fish is equally good. Can also recommend the ruccola salad! The location is lovely with views over the main... More

This is one of our favourite restaurants on the island, run with a great family service which is second to none. They see to your every need and where possible cater the food to suit you too. Every thing is freshly made so very tasty, with generous portions. We have a young 21 month old daughter and felt very comfortable... More

The food here is bettered only by their attentive service, nothing is too much trouble. The food was cooked to perfection and large portions too. Would I go again? Yes certainly.

We arrived in Malta 4 days ago and this was the best meal since we arrived. Attentive owners/waiters, great fresh food, terrific fish and dried tomato dip, terrific antipasto gozitano, terrific sea bass with potatoes and vegetables, terrific tiramisu, terrific people! If we stayed longer in gozo, we would come back here again (and again and again and again)!

After a disaster from a different restaurant in Marsalforn we decided to go to the Trattoria. I must say the owners are super pleasant and they make you feel like your coming to their home. The gozo starter was excellent: fresh salad with gozo cheese and a delicious vinaigrette. For the main course I ordered Linguini Frutti di Mare and... More

We were hungry after diving all day and didn't realise how busy this restaurant was, hence cold chicken dish to two of our group. we felt they could not cope under pressure.
