Highly recommended. Best pizza in Malta & Gozo.

Simply AMAZING. Delicious. Fresh food. We ordered a salad, a pizza frutti di mare and a spaghetti with rabbit. Everything was homemade. The pizza from the stone oven was spectacular. The fish in the pizza was fresh: Tuna, mussels and prawns had a delicious taste. The rabbit cooked in red wine... read more

Maybe it was what we ordered but were not expecting our lamb meal to be what it was. It tasted like boiled mutton with 3 bones on my plate alone. Not only that but when we sat at our table had to ask the waitress 3 times to clean the bird poo of the paper table cloth. Thought she would... More

The dough into a pizza tasted like a donut. In the container we found green moldy parmesan piece. Very good garlic bread as a starter.

Visited here in the winter - excellent choice as the oven was lit and provided some welcome warmth! Typical Gozitan farmhouse - stone walls, high ceilings etc. The pizzas were thin crust and very good. The local wine was excellent.

This was recommended and it did not disappoint. We ate with the locals and our meals were excellent - good choice of local pastas and the pizza from the big stone oven was really delicious. Not fine dining but exactly what we needed after a days walking.

Great Stone Oven Pizza with lots of variety and some special local toppings. Outside seating comes in handy in the summer when the oven is roaring away.

We rented a refurbished farmhouse a block away from this place and found ourselves craving dinner here almost every day we spent on Gozo. The owner is super nice... makes his own wine and puts a lot of love in his food. Service is a little slow but you basically have one guy taking your order, preparing it and cooking... More

Excellent food served in a traditional setting - owner has old authentic pizza oven. The rabbit stew was fantastic, full of flavour with huge portions of herby potatoes and vegetables. The red wine had been made in their own vineyard and although sold as the house red was delicious. Couldn't manage desserts as we were so full. Highly recommended.

Myself and a friend dined here 3 times in a single weeks holidays it was so good. Amazing food, local ingredients even the wine is home made by the owner! It is a unique experience to see the old stone oven fully operational, their bread is the best I've ever tasted. It is always buzzing with locals and tourists, couples... More

I have been lucky enough to have dined here on a few occasions now, and can honestly say that the food, albeit it large portions, is truly delicious! My personal favourite is the rabbit spaghetti, each time I've ordered it, it is exactly the same, consistency being the most important role of a great restaurant. If you are looking for... More
