Naxxar is gradually getting some decent places to wine and dine. Cellini has been around for a couple of years and graduated from a wine bar to a fully fledged cost restaurant. Very pleasant reception, service and food in the hallway of a small typical Maltese townhouse. Lots of people were turned away during our visit so be sure to... More

This restaurant/winebar is the best in Malta for us! Beautiful and romantic interior in an old building on a corner next to the church of Naxxar. 2 floors with impressive stairway hall. The host is very friendly and personaly involved. Delicious Maltese food: great rabbit stew, pastas, salmon and specialties. Priceless desserts, we almost tried every dessert on the menu... More

Celebrated my birthday at this very elegant yet cost restaurant. Beautiful old building with opulent chandeliers and high arches. Seats a small amount of people which was delightful as there wasn't a long wait for the food. Some of us had the duck, which was tasty albeit that I prefer my meat more 'done'. Great wine selection complements what is... More

Description
Cellini is a quaint wine bar & bistro situated in the heart of the village of Naxxar, Malta. It is named after Piju Cellini, a reputable designer and painter born in 1863, the designer and maker of the town's parish church door, the first bronze door in Malta at that time.But why name it after Pio Cellini? This house was built by Vincenzo Bonavia towards the middle of the 19th century and the coat of arms on the entrance door shows the griffon, a symbol of Christ representing the right road (‘Bona’ + ‘Via’). Dun Salvatore Bonavia, only son of six children of Vincenzo, lived here till he died in 1946. Dun Salv had served on the committee set up in the early years of the 20th century to make plans and oversee the works on the widened church façade which now cried out for a much larger door. Seeing the friendship that developed between him and Cellini, one would be forgiven for thinking that Dun Salv had had a big say in the choice of the artist. Cellini was in fact a regular visitor to this house where he spent many hours with his priest friend. He did not sit in the same chair you are sitting on now, but he probably often sat in the same spot. You may wish to imagine what topics turned up in those long, relaxed and pleasant conversations; ones we wish you too are having now.Cellini Wine Bar & Bistro serves typical nibbles, platters, small eats, mouthwatering dishes prepared by our resident Chef including our popular grilled fresh rib eye, duck and other dishes. Well chosen wines from all over the world.Open all days from 11am till 3pm, 7pm till late. Monday closed for lunch.Private functions also accepted!Directions - facing the church, Cellini Wine Bar & Bistro is on the right hand side, between Naxxar Football Club and Gasan & Mamo Insurance Agency.
