The trattoria retains is position as a reliable eatery in Mdina the old capital of Malta. As a must see Mdina is a walled town which definitely should be on one’s agenda when visiting the island. An early start will avoid the crowds of tourists who descend on Mdina later on in the morning. If you intend to have lunch then it is advisable to book before you start the tour as towards lunch time it may be booked out. We took some French friends after our visit and I can comment favourably on the ambiance, food and service. Definitely worth trying.

My wife and I went to have a casual dinner at the restaurant. We dine there occasionally so we often think of it when we are looking to have dinner in a serene setting. We were pleased to be welcomed by the head chef who asked about the meal and even came twice to check on us. We could feel that customers are valued at the restaurant. We were even more pleased when we got the bill and realized that our coffee and dessert were given to us on the house. The food was great but the service was even better. Thank you and keep it up!

We had placed a Thursday dinner booking for 19 adults, which was reconfirmed in the morning.
Upon being seated and placing our orders, we were only then informed that our main courses could not be served simultaneously. Out of circa 80 covers, there were not more than another 20 customers dining.
Plates were served spread over a period of one hour - surely not the way to spend a night out eating together.
Food average, with the sole pizza although being served as the last plate, was soggy.
Non-Maltese staff were not helpful or apolgetic.
Front door was wide open and inside was cold. Upon enquiring whether door could be closed, waiter said no - just offered a blanket.
For prices charged and lousy service, we will surely not recommend.

Small and secluded restaurant in the silent city of Mdina. The menu offers a lot of food choices. We had a focaccia for starter and pizza and pasta for the main course.
The servers were really nice, and the atmosphere was really relaxing.
