My friends and I visited this restaurant because so many people recommended their unique pizza which locals here call Il-Ftira... The taste of this pizza is so unique that one should not miss out on tasting it especially tourists.. The ingredients are all very local such as the typical baked potatoes and rosemary on pizza. It is not possible to describe all the pizzas on their menu but trust me they are definitely worth a try. The restaurant feel is that of a typical baker with a stone oven and very friendly staff who are also owners of the place... Value for money is guaranteed and prices are not expensive at all.

This is the second we visited this charming restaurant as a group. The family who own the restaurant could not be more gracious and generous. They love showing viistors the oven which cooks the food and then serve course after course of delicious food. We were seated on the long table out of doors, on the edge of the road which was very quiet and gave the impression of truly being part of the village. Go hungry and stay long!

Very informal, food cooked to order in ancient stone oven, wine from Toni's own vineyard. And their bread is delicious, too.

Thank michael a

We visited Tal Furnar because I saw the reviews on Trip Advisor. I was also recommended to visit by expats living on the island. We were not disappointed! Traditional clay oven which cooked the food to perfection, in fact the best roast potatoes i have ever had. Tables inside and out and they serve their home made wine. Family run and they were very welcoming. I was also recommended the beef bragoli which were excellent, a huge portion! Anna Marie showed me pictures of her home made desserts which looked delightful, we were just too full to sample. Thank you, we will be back!

We found out about this typical gozitan restaurant from trip advisor ! We totally agree with all the good comments; the food is great, home made, and cooked in this clay oven, the pizzas are amazing, we also had soup and as mains everyone tried something different; we had rabbit, typical bragolis, ravioli, all so good...
Really worth trying it out and you ll definitely keep on going ! The place is small, ideally you make a reservation !
