It's a real pity this quaint restaurant isn't in a more prominent location. We visited with a group of friends for late night food and we were greeted with beautiful décor and attentive staff. The large variety of bruschetta is one of the specialities of this place and it is highly recommended. The starter portion of pasta was also excellent... More

We found this by chance down a little side street. Food was great, good choice of wine, beers and cocktails. Good size portions - starter size pasta as a 'main' was ample. Really friendly staff and background music that was not too loud to disrupt conversation. A real gem.

This restaurant is well hidden in Victoria and you will not find it advertised in any tourist magazin (yet) and thus not an "award winning restaurant" as you will them see all over Malta...But here you find good local and Italian food resonably priced. It can be busy even off season so book a table to be sure. (Phone 00356... More

Very nice decor, it was almost like going into a Tardis! A number of small rooms, nice atmosphere. Good menu, interesting, different flavours. Portions slightly on the large side especially if you had a starter! Staff keen to please and want you to enjoy your meal.

We have passed this restaurant many times on our September Gozo holidays and it has always been closed. This year was different and we booked a table. We were greeted by a very nice waitress and proceeded to order food and wine sitting in a very nice atmosphere. The starters arrived with the wine and all was good. The evening... More

Food was very delicious and prepared in a very home-made style that showed the chef's passion illustrating a mix of Gozitan food with an Italian touch! Service and atmosphere was very pleasant. Resto is in the heart of Gozo's capital which makes it nicer to dine there while one can also enjoy walking around the narrow streets of Victoria/Rabat.

This quaint bistro offers good quality food with an Italian touch which makes it really special. We tried one of the bruschettas for starters which was very enjoyable and tasty and then we had 3 different pasta dishes which were equally delicious...the tomato sauce was exceptional, having that true Italian taste which is very difficult to replicate at home. Well... More

Lovely little restaurant in the old part of Victoria on the way to Kercam. Had a very tasty Aubergine Parmagiana. Tasty food with a original twist. Good reasonably priced wine and friendly service.
