Suggestive place and everything perfect!

A very good Mediterranean kitchen, especially hand-made pasta, platters with a lot of specialities from Italy and Gozo, and a very interesting wine list! The atmosphere is cosy and the staff always smiling and friendly!! Not to be missed!!

We chose to eat here quite early, more or less as soon as it opened at 7pm, as we needed to get a bus back to Marsalforn. The food was delicious, we shared a bruschetta to start and I had the spiced lamb chops with oh opting for fish with nut crust. Then, as the restaurant began to fill up... More

Having noticed this small bistro tucked away in one of the small side streets of old Victoria, I decided to give it a try. I don't regret it, and I doubt anyone would! I chose Black Truffle Tortino with Wild Asparagus & Guanciale from the Specials Menu, and I savored every bit of it. The Aspargus came from the Ta'Pinu... More

The fresh, home made gnocchi with asparagus, butter and sage were an absolute wow. Bruschetta was so simple, yet the fresh tomatoes bursting with flavor made it so delicious I can still taste it. The apple crumble was a huge portion and superb! The waiter's recommendations were genuine. My friends enjoyed the meal and this is currently my favorite in... More

This is one fantastic spot, worth visiting. We make it a point to dine here every time that we are in Gozo. The food is fantastic and without any doubt one of the best of the island. The staf is friendly and always ready to help. The menu has always some surprise since it's changed according to season. We've been... More
