I was very much looking forward to visiting this restaurant. Customers' reviews really got me curious about this place. However, unfortunately, this place did not live up to my expectations. I have been to this restaurant on Easter Sunday for a family lunch. As soon as we arrived, we were welcomed in a very friendly manner; we were given the... More

Perfect dinner, as vegetarians we enjoyed our meal very much! Both the mushroom starter and cheese ravioli main course were a succes. We were pleasantly surprised about the antipasti. Service was excellent, we never had to wait too long and staff was very friendly. At the end we were offered a limoncello, again a very nice surprise!

Nice menu. Brought over lovely olives, tomato & bread which we thought was our starter at first but was complimentary. Our starter when it did come was so tasty. It was beans,gozo cheese,sundried tomato & a mixture of tapas. I had the red snapper & was one of the most delicious things i've had,I suppose because it was so fresh.... More

Chef Gordon never disappoints. From starter to dessert all you eat is goodness and genuineness. Everyone will find something to their liking from the vast choice on the menu available + the specials of the day. Dont hesitate to try pasta. Will definitely call again in the near future. 10x

One of the best pasta dishes I have ever tasted and good wine too, all for a very reasonable price. Staff were very helpful and will definitely go again!

I did like this restaurant. The service was excellent, I was given antipasti, and the wine list is great. However, the food just isn't that good. It is cheap though.
