After a long number of years,due to circumstances beyond our control, this year we couldn't hold the traditional extended-family lunch at home so my wife and I decided to eat out. The choice fell on La Spigola in Marsascala and it was a very wise and rewarding choice. For the first course we opted for lobster pasta and tuna carpacccio... More

The menu was great including the specials and the fresh fish display presenting the catch of the day, which we opted for. As starters we had vongole and pasta with sea urchins. The pasta was to die for, truly excellent. As for main course we had fish - bazuga which was cooked to perfection. To accompany this we had a... More

It's one of the best restaurants for sea food and pasta. The best pasta sea urchins as well as the local fish (lampuka) could only be found in this restaurant. Furthermore, the service is excellent. Worth visiting.

We went there mid- September and sat outside. A group of friends and expected fine fish dining. The owner came and explained the fresh fish antipasto with fresh tuna chunks in lemon sauce, something I never tasted before and it was super. Three types of seafood pasta including one with lobster, simply delicious ... Then it was fish fish and... More

Very friendly owners, who spent a lot of time with us, despite the small restaurant being packed, and this added to the charm of the place. As well as being a cosy place with a lot of character on the waterfront. Great place. The food was decent. Not outstanding. Starters - mussels in wine and garlic (very large and meaty)... More
