Grazie Mille was recommended to us by great friends of ours and given that it is situated in the next village we decided to give it a try.

As the management accepts dogs ( big plus ) we decided to take Arthur with us and asked for an outside table in the charming inner courtyard. The atmosphere was idyllic , small tables of two or four with a very civilised clientele all speaking very 'sotto voce'.

My partner had a vitello tonnato to start with while I had a beef carpaccio with truffle oil , both dishes surpassing our expectations.

We then both ordered a fritto misto of seafood for a main course. This was fantastic, prawns, calamari and baby octopus as well as courgettes coated in the lightest of batters and deep fried to an unbelievable crispness. Truly wonderful !

A cloud of tiramisu in a tall stemmed glass and a trio of delicious homemade ice-cream completed this memorable feast. Two espressos came with an offering of complimentary liqueurs / amaro.

The service is their weak link, the staff are mainly untrained transient workers who don't appear to know whether they are coming or going. Having said this, we ate in two hours flat which gave us time to enjoy our dinner.

On the way out were introduced to the charming chef who hails from Milan and he explained that he has tried to represent all the various culinary regions of his home country in his enticing menu.

We shall surely be paying Grazie Mille a return visit in the very near future.

We had dinner here one evening of our holiday in Gozo back in September and both agree that it was our favourite meal of the trip!

The atmosphere was lovely and the staff were very attentive. The food was excellent, my fiancé had the tuna steak and still thinks its the best she's ever had!

Will definitely return here when we are next back in Gozo, highly recommended!

Authentic Italian cooking in a boutique restaurant. Very cute atmospheric Italian restaurant which is not a pizzeria but a quality restaurant owned by a lovely Italian lady . Good choice of fresh food , portions are reasonable but not overwhelming large . Service is good & the owner is truly attentive to detail . Walking distance from the Kempinski hotel which made it practical for us to go to 2x during our stay . Keep an open mind & the food will do the rest .

Great pasta and beef dishes. Good service. However very disappointed that they allowed a group of 4 with 2 large dogs for Sunday Lunch in Mothers’ day.

Thank you TripAdvisor family for recommending this restaurant. We were staying in Victoria and saw the reviews for Gracie Mille in Gharb and decided we’d give it a go. What a find.
This place has a great ambience with lovely staff. We were offered bruschetta on the house which was a wonderful surprise and tasted great. I had grilled sea bass which was sweet and juicy. My partner had the tuna which he found a little salty - my mouthful was fine! Do have the pumpkin and amaretto risotto - it’s fabulous.
We finished with the tiramisu (divine) and poached pears - lovely and spicy but a tad hard for my taste.
We enjoyed the meal with a bottle of Fenici white wine - I do wish this was available to the general public!
All in all a wonderful meal in a fab little restaurant.
