If you are looking for authentic Italian food, then this is the place to visit! This simple restaurant with homely decor, especially the peaceful terrace overlooking the beautiful Marsascala bay, makes me feel right at home; the owners Carmen and Geraldo (the Chef from Naples), with great charisma serve up the best that comes out of the sea everyday.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming to our large party of 8. They were extremely busy when we arrived and accommodated us at late notice. The wine was delicious as was the food - fresh seafood with a lovely homemade feel. Great view over the harbour too.

We visited this restaurant on 1st August for my husbands birthday after both receiving and reading very good reviews. From the start the welcome and service was excellent and the starters were all very good. My friend remarked that the fish soup was the best he had ever had. All but two of the main courses were also very good,... More

This restaurant really surprised us. The prices were VERY fair, especially given the quality of the food and the service! Our waitress was wonderful - extremely attentive and very professional. She also encouraged us to sit and chat after our meal for as long as we liked which was lovely. We both had pasta dishes and they let us change... More

We went on a Friday and sat outside to enjoy a nice breeze. Staying in Marsaskala everyone said it was the best restaurant around for fish. I took the linguini with lobster and Ron with rizzi (sea urchins), with a nice bottle of white. The pasta was super, I sincerley never tasted such a delicacy, Ron also enjoyed his spaghetti....

Went various times to this restaurant and the initial pasta is excellent and to die for. Other dishes related to fish are excellent. The ambience is ok, but in Summer you could spend hours in the small terrace fronting on Marsascala Bay.

We were a big group and the service was still excellent while the food was very fresh and you could tell the owner is Italian. Well Done!!
