We had a lvely dinner a this restaurant.
We had an anti pasti with arancini ! really good, you should serve at least 4 balls !
Then I asked for spaghetti a la norma instead of the ravioli. This was no problem at all.
It was great with fresh ricotta, and the portion was huge.
My husband had a frittura mista. Very fresh and crispy !
Good place to eat !

Reviews here are overall postive, however my expierence is quite poor.
It took the restaurant nearly one hour (!) before we received our starter, which was a cold salad, with smoked salmon. I love salmon, but I couldn't even eat this plate, wondering what exactly happened with the poor fish. Tasted like paper.
We hoped our main paste dish would be an improvement ... it wasn't.
Tasteless, bland. Didn't even finish my meal. Staff is not even wondering why we didn't finished none of the plates.
Waste of time and money!

We decided to try here having read some decent reviews, but wish we hadn't. It was a quiet night at the end of the peak season. Bread was stale (left over from the previous day?). Starter was fine, but main course very poor......ribeye steak completely tasteless, and the pasta dish bland.

Staff attitude when we commented was very dismissive.

Excellent and genuine food. Definitely good value for money. Typically Sicilian food in a Sicilian environment. Very good service and friendly staff. We will re visit.

This restaurant is a diamond in the rough. The food is excellent........on a weekend break in May we have been there 4 times & every time food was amazing. Being seafood lovers we was in heaven. We have since returned quite a few times, it is our fav restaurant in Gozo. Service is very friendly. Portions are very generous & for the excellent fresh seafood they serve, prices are cheap. The side dishes are also generous & their home made chips are to die for. The mussels in marinara sauce are out of this world, we always order a massive platter & after we are done from the mussels , we find it impossible not to dip the fresh Maltese bread in the amazing marinara sauce. Best pasta with lobster on the island for sure. Booking is recommended especially on the weekend in summer as it is always fully booked & it stands to reason.
