“Great food and friendly service”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Just back from a very enjoyable stay at Qala. Ate at Ta' Vestru 3 times and had great food every time at very reasonable prices. Mainly Italian based dishes but especially enjoyed the ones with the local twist e.g. the salad with Gozitan peppered cheese, the pasta with capers, olives and sun-dried tomatoes and the pizza with the fried potatoes and anchovies. My husband raved about the depth of flavour in his lamb dish. Also enjoyed the very affordable local wines which were delicious. Only problem was the size of the portions which meant we were usually too full for dessert! However, tried the Sicilian cassata on our last night and again, it was delicious. The setting is rustic and not at all formal but the stone walls and wooden beams added to it's appeal for us, and you can also sit outside at the edge of the square. Small and family run but service was good and our waitress was welcoming and helpful when we asked about local produce. Our experience was entirely positive and we're only sorry we're not close enough to be regulars. I would definitely recommend this.

“Poor service, food lacking main ingredients”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We visited Ta Vestru twice. The service was slow on the first visit. I had tortellini with bacon and mushroom. I counted one slice of mushroom and four tiny pieces of bacon. The second visit was a late visit approx 9.30 for pizza. The order was taken but a couple of minutes later we were told the pizza oven had been turned off. When we went to pay the bill the waitress was eating pizza! This may have been cooked earlier but we thought the least they could have done was wait until we had left. Did not visit again.

“so disappointed”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

we have been going to this place for these last two years.the owner by now should have got used to us till now but unfortunately her hidden smile seems that we are strangers and very unfamiliar to her. On a monday when the shop was empty and 17 of us were there, she should have made us more than welcome. unfortunately she has made it very difficult to arrange tables for us. Maybe she had a bad day but one should never treat clients in this manner, let alone to give us a normal portion of veg and potatoes to share between four of us who ordered rabbit. definately we wont be visiting this restaurant again..........

“Definitely the best food on the island for unbeatable quality, quantity .”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

This restaurant was our local for our 10 day visit to qala. How lucky we were to have stumbled on it on our first evening. We have visited gozo seven times so are very familiar with the island and all it has to offer, and this was an undiscovered gem.
