We have tried to go here before but the timing somehow never worked out, until last weekend. As a Maltese who goes to Gozo frequently, this is the only place on the island where you can sit and enjoy an authentic, old-style Gozitan meal. This means that it is a simple, honest place with genuine owners serving truly excellent food.... More

We showed up just after six pm and asked for a table. They couple told us that they were still getting ready, but to sit down and look at the menu. The story on page one of the stone oven being built and the family using and letting neighbours use it was entertaining. The paste with crackers to start with... More

There are few places left like Tal-Furnar. The owner, mom and daughter run the place. Super local, tiny, the real deal. Like eating in my grandmothers farmhouse kitchen. Not fancy, good food, go for the experience. The owner has his own vineyard and bottles his own wine. Super good price, crazy delicious. We drink tons of wine, this was the... More

If you love Pizza and are staying in Xaghra, Gozo, this restaurant is a must. Family restaurant, using original stone ovens. You might miss it as its off the main square. Take the road to the right of the church in the square and the right fork where the road divides an easy short walk.

I cannot comment on the rest of the menu but I couldn't sent people to what I believed was the best pizza on the island when the pizza I ate - or didn't eat - tonight was nothing like last year's experience. To give Tony his due he didn't charge us for the food so let's hope this was a... More

Extremely rude staff, visited many places in the Island and this is definitely one where I would never come back. Higiene is unknown to them, food not the greatest. People on this island are lovely except these ones!

I was there with my husband with any reservation. There were a lot of people so we decided to try especially that the menu looked really nice. I ordered Goziziana pizza without mozzarella cause I'm vegan. The pizza was nice and super tasty with a lots of vegatebles. My husband took a lamb and he sad it was delicious. Prices... More

Food is good but the owner need to have some lessons how to treat customers good not yelling at them. Our friend came to pick us up to give us a lift and we weren't ready from eating so we invited him to have a seat with us. Surprisingly we heard him shouting and ordered one of his staff to... More

We visited here a few years ago and my wife has always raved about the beef olives so it was on our list of places to go to this time and it didn't disappoint. I've read reviews about this place complaining about the service but to be honest I couldn't fault them. We got a table straight away although several... More
