Be it a pizza or Chinese food it was esquisite and good value for money in the past but this time since am watching what to eat ordered a swordfish but instead of requesting chips I requested...

Three different types of menu were presented to us, from Chinese, to Maltese and Pizza. The service was a a bit slap dash and we found the pizza to be unpleasant.

Yesterday evening was the second visit in two weeks to this establishment, the first was dissapointing for the quality and presentation of food but we thought we would give them a second chance. This was even worse! One of our friends ordered Chicken Curry which looked like 90% rice and is seemed like it had been thrown on the dish.... More

went there on Friday evening.,pizza was salty, Maltese platter was below poor....the dried tomatoes were uneatable ,the Maltese olives were sliced olives out of a jar, the gallerying weren't fresh and the salad limp! When I complained about it the waitress just shrugged and didn't come back to our table!!! Will definitely not go there again! :(

Prices are not too high, but food is not that great either. Been there on a weekday, service was good, and food did not take long. I do not suggest this place if you are in a mood to eat a great meal. The dish I ordered, which was a penne carbonara was super filled with thick white sauce. It... More

We tried some Chinese food and was not good at all, as well the pizzas served on other tables did not looked good. Love for cooking is not in the kitchen.

Great value for good food, and good service. Food is delivered really quickly, and both the pizza and pasta are very good. Other food, such as meat, are not as good, though most of the time not too bad for the price either. The restaurant and take-away also offer Chinese which is acceptable. Take-away pizza is a favourite!

Oh my goodness we here handed 4 menus, this is just too much choice, we only popped in for a snack. There must have been 100+ choice of meals and snacks between them with a variety of nationalities all at very reasonable costs. We both opted for pasta. The hubby having bolognaise and me a seafood pasta. The portions were... More

Just been to Il-Fanal restaurant. I am not a regular to Marsascala but since we were in the mood for pizza we thought that this place, being the largest in town and full, they should serve good pizza. I was so disappointed. The dough was inedible. I could not even cut it with a knife, let alone eat it. My... More

Do not expect anything special when you visit Il Fanal restaurant, but I must say that it is quite good for a quick lunch. Service acceptable, food acceptable aswell, and price is fair. A great deal for a non-expensive meal.
