We wanted to treat ourselves to a good night out and were so pleased we checked through the TripAdvisor recommendations and found this place. The décor was simple and really impressive, a converted farmhouse with stone walls. We new we were going to have a special night as soon as we stepped in, saw the place, heard the lovely jazz playing and were welcomed by great staff. We don't eat meat but the staff were happy to make up a sharing platter to start for us with a really good selection of tapas style foods. The recommended Gozo Chardonnay was excellent as was the rest of our meal. We were there for hours as we felt so relaxed and couldn't resist staying on for coffee and liqueur in the terrace after our meal. Highly recommended.

Just a short stroll from where we are staying on Gozo, La Stanza proved to be a real treat. The ambience is a stone built fortified house with 17th C origins sitting below the looming Citadel, now charmingly converted as a cosy restaurant. We sat inside in the high ceilinged room, but the covered front terrace and alcoves also looked inviting. The staff were very welcoming and knowledgeable about food and wine. The impressive menu has recommendations of local wines to try, which we did. Rabbit terrine and tagliatelle procini starters followed by two beef dishes and stewed calamari were all excellent and elegantly presented as were the puddings. All in all an excellent dinner for four working out at €30 a head (tip additional) was very good value. Little extras from the house like a pre dinner glass of sparkling Sottovoce a local Gozo rose and sorbet before the main course made it even better. Recommended.

My friend and I had a lovely meal at La Stanza a week ago. The new owner Cedric and his staff were attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The food and it's presentation were lovely and the complimentary aperitif and dips were appreciated. La Stanza is in an old Gozitan stone building and has a lovely warm, calm, relaxing atmosphere with tasteful fittings and soft lighting; there is also plenty of space between tables. It has the feel of an upmarket restaurant, but the prices are reasonable. Definitely recommended. A*

We had a fabulous evening at La Stanza, where not only was service excellent, but the food memorable and of the highest quality and presentation. I have been coming to Gozo for nearly 30 years for work, and never before have I had such a memorable high quality meal that was enjoyed by my entire party. The setting is comfortable and romantic in well resorted old buildings, the waiting service and chef's attentions helpful and unobtrusive. La Stanza is highly recommended given the range of menu, the excellent wines and the price. This was a meal of real value for money and we shall be returning as often as we can!
