If you are missing the italian real food this restaurant fix the problem

Funny and curious how a lasagna could be missed. So i went to Capo Tavola which a has a new full italian management who knows what theyr'e doing. Full satisfied, I have lived in Marsaskala for a year now and I think this is the best italian food around the area.

This is my second review of Capo Tavola but a first since the new management took over. The food was quite nice and the service rendered by the 'Pugliesi' tends to be a little bit friendlier than the previous 'Romani' (if I'm not mistaken). Prices remain on the same level as before which are more or less average for a... More

We came her twice during our stay in Marsascala. We loved the atmosphere and the view on the upstairs patio. The staff was very friendly and likeable. I have Celiac and they were able to prepare a gluten free risotto option for me.

We are a family of four on holiday in Malta, from England. We came across this restaurant and absolutely loved the food - excellent homemade pasta. Guiseppe and co were excellent hosts, recommending wines and different local fish etc..., we ate there twice in our 9 days in Malta. Will definitely visit again when next in Malta, highly recommended!

Capo Tavola is open again. New menu, better prices (way better) & genuine home-style food that reflects the region of Pulgia in a subtle way. Giuseppe and family make their best to offer fresh and food that is cooked to order. It is part of their culture to serve nothing but fresh food. You wouldn't mind the extra few minutes... More

Capotavola recently changed management. The restaurant had been closed for a few months - I had actually missed the atmosphere, the coffee and the good food and was delighted when it re-opened. I was also somewhat hesitant. Would it live up to the high standards that I was used to expect from Capotavola? I was not disappointed. Giuseppe, the new... More

I have been to CapoTavola for lunch this week. Definitely worth a try. The food is not your run of the mill 'Italian style' but genuinely Italian. The seafood ragu was divine as well as the fresh antipasti directly imported from Puglia. Giuseppe and his father are doing their utmost and it is showing. Apparently the previous management had let... More
