This lovely place is just off the main tourist track and is frequented my many locals and visitors like myself who have enjoyed visiting here previously.

We visited this restaurant before but only for tea and ' pastizzi ', but this time we opted to try the food. We both took home made ravioli which were extremely good.

We looked at many restaurants before deciding on this one. Many locals eating there - always a good sign when trying somewhere new. You can see the food being prepared in the open kitchen area - all clean and organised. We ordered pizzas - not my favorite dish in the UK but so much better in Malta. My wife had... More
