“Absolutely excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

The food was simply delicious! Great value for money and a very friendly staff. The restaurant has a nice, modern, relaxed setting however i must comment on the food which was absolutely excellent, presented in a decent manner and in a reasonable portion. A must visit if you're in Gozo.

“Lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We ate here twice, had very nice food both times. I highly recommend any of their homemade pasta type dishes (ravioli, stuffed cannelloni). We went in early March and this restaurant was nearly full every night, while the others struggled to get more than a couple customers, a very good sign. La Valette was a cheap, light, red Malta wine which we were happy with.

“Best spare ribs on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We are living on Gozo and like going to La Pulena because of their excellent spare ribs, best I ever had. If you like spare ribs La Pulena is a must.

“Great food -especially the risotto”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

One of the best risottos we've ever tasted. It was made with local cheese and they were very gerous with the portions, as they were with the delicious home made warm bread, (free) bruschetta, lovely baby swordfish -a real find - and superb rabbit casserole

“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Nice friendly staff. Good food. Their fresh pasta was very good. The fresh fish of the day was plainly grilled and was not served with any accompanying sauce etc. so nothing special here. Their pizza is very good with a lovely thin crispy crust. Will certainly visit again for a casual meal or pizza.
