A family-run restaurant specialising in fish, offering novel dishes of fish or sea food, which is always day-fresh. Has a few al fresco tables in the best part of Marsaskala, and in the two times I have been to the place I have always vowed I would return. Highly recommended, even among strong competition nearby.

We almost missed this place. It wasn't open every night, even in the peak of August. It's also a pretty unassuming place to look at - looks more like a casual cafe but its food is of a far higher standard. The past is homemade and delicious, especially with the seafood. The family are from Sicily and love it if... More

The food was rich in taste and in addition they serve it with 2 side dishes( fried potatoes and vegetables). Before the meal we even got the compliment , some butter bread and something else. And that all was for... More

Well recently, Giuseppe, who up till a few weeks ago was manning the show, decided to go back to his original calling and took over the kitchen. If... More

On the occasion of Father's Day, last Sunday my wife and I, accompanied by our daughter, decided to have lunch at the Capo Tavola, where we got to know that the new chef is Giuseppe, the son of the patron. We shared an excellent dish of home-made salmon ravioli with a divine sauce and then I had a fillet, my... More

Stumbled across this whilst my sister and I were looking for somewhere to eat along the promenade and we chose this simply because we heard the waiter speaking Italian....lovely friendly service by this family-run restaurant...my fresh pasta with mussels was yummy and my sister had cannelloni with ricotta and spinach...I tasted that and it was lovely - coupled with Prosecco...

We have a great family meal here, Our server also son & perhaps part owner was the real part that made our night here. Toying with the kids & just generally being fun & light hearted. We will go back just due to this as he was great.
