Description: l-Vecchio Forno wine bar is situated in the heart of Mosta. Housed within a traditional bakery, the converted interiors are a cosy and relaxing setting. Candle-lit tables, typical Maltese stone walls, paintings and art pieces,and chunky wooden doors all add to the atmosphere.A favourite with Maltese residents Il-Vecchio Forno has a considerable selection of local and foreign wines.The secret ace of the place must however be the still functioning stone oven and the delicious Il Vecchio Forno pizzas that are cooked inside. It also gives the wine bar a homely inviting feel in the colder months of the year . Il Vecchio forno also serves platters, focaccias, salads ,ravioli, and daily specialities such as tipical Italian dishes pappardelle al tartufo, ravioli al cingiale,and linguine vongole.The unique atmosphere is ideal for Birtday parties,Hens\Bachelor parties, graduation and staff parties.Open daily from 7pm onwards.

It was recommended by a friend of mine & we decided to book a table a fortnight ago, once you enter the wine bar you will be greeted with a warm welcome by the staff. A very vast selection of foreign wine & a very elaborate menu to choice your taste. We had starter & main course but honestly it was to much to digest. Reservation recommended & don't be deceived because it's situated in a main street, inside it's totally sound proof.

This place was recommended to us by our B&B hosts. The pizza was great, and they had a huge variety of vegetarian ones (not only Margherita and Funghi as in many restaurants), which made it hard for me to chose (and that's a rare thing, even at Italian restaurants). We also had pizza in other cities in Malta, but at the Il Vecchio Forno we definitely had the best one! The waitress was friendly, she recommended us a matching wine to our pizzas which was really good, she was fast, and in the end the price/performance ratio was more than perfect.

We went to Vecchio Forno for a family occasion in the beautiful town of Mosta and it was surprisingly very good, everyone was happy with the choice of wine, delicious platters and great service. We couldn't complain much about it and even the prices were very reasonable... It is located in the road in front of the historic Mosta Church and if you want to get away from all the hectic cities of Malta and have a quiet relaxing night out with genuine food & prices that this place is Perfect.

Only thing that could be better is the presentation of platters, could be much more creative and not like they were done by us. Very happy to go again surely :)

I organised our staff party to celebrate the year end. We were treated very well with a good mix of apetizers and some nice bottles of wine. Service was very good.
