Wonderful dinners. Had the full course meal with wine tasting which was really excellent. The ambience, service by Luigi, the meal, wine all made for a perfect experience.

There is a widespread theory and practice in the English speaking world, which suits the margins of restaurants better than the stomachs of diners, that there is a sharp divide between fine dining and hearty portions. Chef Giovanni Giliberto who has been at the Moresca for more than five years does not adhere to this self interested heresy. He serves... More

we stayed at the hotel http://www.torremarabino.com/en/ which was outstanding. Food was excellent and as a vegetarian, the chef prepared a variety of courses that were different each day. Breakfast was delicious too.

The food here is just wonderful. The evening started with prosecco and delicious canapes. We then had octopus carpaccio and rocket, a prawn risotto, and a grouper main course, followed by a tiramisu dessert. The best I have ever tasted. The single grape chardonnay is sensational. All this in a Norman castle with attentive waiters and a charming host. A... More

Elegant small restaurant in wonderful organic wine producing smallholding, with beautiful guest rooms. Delicious amuses-bouches. Each course was truly delicious, served with pride and care. Wine was from their own produce. Perfect place for a special occasion.

Beatifully presented, creative dishes made from locally produced organic ingredients. Particuarly loved the pumpkin semi fredo. Eating under the vines beneath the stars looking out over the sparkling coastline. A very special place to dine.

It was not my first time at La Moresca and will not be my last. However it was my first time with a group. We organised a training session for a group of Maltese farmers and artisans. Had lunch at La Moresca after we had planned the menu carefully with Simona from Torre Marabino. The olive oil, wines and food... More

When you arrive at the hotel, the building and the grounds are lovely. The fact it is bit off the beaten track is rather nice. There were about 8 tables all outside and the ambience was good. A good view. The menu is limited with a choice of 2 antipasti, 2 second courses and 2 main courses. The antipasti stuffed... More

Visited Torre Marabino's restaurant in September after hearing great things about this place. I was not disappointed! Aside from the fact that the environment is incredibly atmospheric, the food and service was second to none. We started with an aperitivo on the terrace overlooking the gardens - a lovely chilled rose made from nero d'avola grapes - and then were... More
