It seemed to have all the makings for my new favorite restaurant: Gluten free pizza, gluten free beer, reasonable prices, low-key atmosphere. Unfortunately, the gluten free offering just isn't very tasty. I wanted so badly to like it here after all the good reviews, we even went back a second time. But alas, it was not to be. GF pizza...

Ate here a couple of times last week (would have been 3, but they are closed on Mondays!) and loved the food. Great portion sizes, without being too much, and well priced. Recommend wild boar ragu linguine if on the specials, spaghetti pescatore and the pizzas! The fried goat's cheese starter was also a hit! Gets busy after 8.30 and... More

We lived in an apartment upstairs and ate there twice. Excellent pizzas! Light, crusty and full of flavors. I recommend this to anyone. Mind you, it's a small place so it is wise to make a reservation

Malta was disappointing for food but this was the best. Four of us and child had a three course with two bottles of wine for about 130 euros. By the way we all liked the Maltese wine, it had an unique lemony flavour. The banoffee pie was a highlight. They also gave the child a a gift, nice touch.

After checking the reviews for this restaurant in triposo, we walked down to this place for dinner. The best pizza that we have ever had so far! It was light with thin crust but value for money with huge portions. My husband hates cheese but he could not stop resisting fresh ricotta ravoli. They also have the option for gluten... More

This was the best pizza I've ever had! So light... delicious! I returned again and had a salad... 'it was just as good! This restaurant is just off the sea front, a few steps up the side street and as soon as you slide the door open, you're greeted by a wonderful atmosphere and some great smells! The staff work...

Having read the good reviews of this restaurant we decided to visit as it wasn't far from our hotel. What a mistake . I ordered the fillet steak which was of a generous size and perfectly cooked to my requested taste (very rare!).However on tasting it ,it was quite obvious that it had been coated in something like crumbled up...

Just off the "Golden Mile" Tower Road you have to know it is there. Excellent service, family friendly, very good food. It is frequently quite full, what better recommendation?
