When we walked in and it smelled like a campfire I was sceptical. But wow I'm glad I stayed! Turns out the smell was just a mosquito deterrent and the kind waiter moved it without trouble. I had beef stroganoff and my partner had ravioli. Both were to die for! Great wine too! We were the last to leave and... More

I visit here regularly as it's the nearest restaurant to where I live. The soups and sauces served with the main courses are very good. The outside of the restaurant looks nothing special but once inside the ambiance is really pleasing. Good food great chef.

One would not expect such nice, cosy and tasty experience in a small town of Gharb. Set in a traditional old town house with a cellar like look the restaurant has a very hospitable owner and very nice menu. We had a steak and ossobucco and both dishes were delicious. Wine selection is pretty nice too. When in Gharb I... More

I visited this restaurant a few times as the first time i went i was impressed by the great hospitally of your host Guizeppi who tries his outmost to please his customers. The food is excellent with so many dishes to choose from and all prepared with such perfection. If you are visiting gozo make it a point in visiting.

A gem of a restaurant! Very welcoming host and genuine food. Very recommended and will definitely visit again! The wood burning stove was a very welcome sight on a cold January night.

After visiting Gozo for a week this was by far the best restaurant we found. Set in a beautiful traditional building in Gharb. Our host was so welcoming, very professional but also making you feel extremely relaxed. Each course of our meal was delicious. I can not recommend this place enough. AMAZING !!!

Just had a wonderful meal at Salvina's. Nothing was too much trouble for Giuseppe our host. The food was wonderful, the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, well worth a visit. Thank you Giuseppe for the perfect evening.

Salvina's is an enchanting, very authentic Gozitan restaurant in the most beautiful old house full of features and memorabilia. Joe, the host, is so welcoming, friendly and attentive. We opted for sitting in the lovely bright conservatory rather than the very cosy interior. The menu was mouth watering and the food was divine. A memorable lunch. Will definitely be back....

We only called in for a coffee and were given a fulsome welcome. The coffee came quickly and was tasty - served with an added delicacy. All good
