“Excellent all round”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Storie e Sapori was so good that we ate there twice in two days. Had seafood pasta, risotto, swordfish and pizza, the last two being the best. In fact when I read someone criticising the pizza here I wondered if they know what Neapolitan pizza is really like.

In addition to the good food, the service is so pleasant and polite, showing genuine interest and attention to detail, that I do not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Gozo.

“Give this a very wide berth”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

Beware this is a complete rip off. We were acosted by a young Italian guy pronating this resturant we were promised a free antipasti and a free gift for the lafies. Upon arriving at the premises only one waiter spoke English the tables were very bare with no condiments etc. The free antipasti was very poor but as it was supposily free we did not complain.
The menu is not very exciting and the wine list is very limited offering only Italian wines which were expensive €13 for the House wine. Overall the food quality is very poor and the portion size quite small. I ordered a 4 Cheeses Pizza which wad nothing special and I am sure all the cheeses was the same.
The service was very poor and slow my sister-inlaw ordered King Prawns with a Lemon sauce and had to wait quite awhile after we had started our
food. Upon arrival their was no sauce which she had to ask for twice in fact she had nearly finished before it arrived .
What also was very distracting was what appeared to be the owners family of several children sitting behind us and being constantly shouted at.
The biggest suprise was the bill the free Antipasti had cost us €12 per couple when question we were told only the wine aperitif was free which we were not offered. The total bill was €106 for 4 persons very expensive.
We definitely will not be returning.

“Mediocre at best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Warning signs should have been the menu that shows photos of the food. But it has a sister restaurant in Naples, Italy so we thought it must be great.

We started with bruschetta which was flavorless. Followed with a seafood salad. It was well presented on the plate but lacked flavor.

Main course was a seafood risotto where the risotto rice was still on the firm side. Mixed grill fish platter looked good, but again it was undercooked. The grilled calamari was almost done, but not quite. The king prawn was just a tad raw. Swordfish was perfect though.

The kids had pizza, but even that was undercooked with raw dough in the middle. For a Napoli restaurant that just not good.

Wine list was good, but the white wine was served without a cooler on the table. Chairs are plastic. Paper napkins. That sums it up.

Ci scusiamo per quello che è successo e siamo convinti che in una sua prossima visita possiamo dimostrare che possiamo sicuramente offrire una qualità migliore.
Cordialmente.
