This was my favourite meal of our trip to Gozo. The service was fantastic, the restaurant is quaint with a great ambiance. The food was fresh and delicious. To start I had the figs and prosciutto and the brueschetta and for my main I had pasta. It was amazing. The staff was very attentive. You must go!

It was a great experience, the place is nice and cosy, the food is exquisite and the service was excellent. I would high suggest to try their pasta dishes, though even the meat was pretty good. I highly recommend it.

Italian owner very kind. Cosy ambience. Food really nice, although we tasted the gozitan platter abd we found the local food very salty. Not the restaurant's fault obviously.

If you ask me, a little over priced. 7 euros for a grilled peach, topped with feta cheese and most disapointed with the cheese platter which was 12 euros ;( Now I won't lie, selection of the cheese was very fine but the...

My wife and I really enjoyed our meal here. She is pregnant and vegetarian and the waiters were more than happy to help finding something suitable. We had the vegetarian and Spanish bruschetta. Half of each, definitely only need 1 to share between 2. Both halves were excellent. I had the beef tagliata for mains which was fantastic and the... More

Visited with friends and took a while to be seated. Service was ok but food just wasn't up to scratch. Squid with cheese was a really bizarre mix that just didn't work. Meats were chewy and tasteless. Amazing venue but food did not match!
