“Unexpectidly Great Restaurant”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

We visited this restaurant twice , because after the first time it deserved a revisit.
Its a nice family run restaurant. The owner is very nice and attentive.
Food is also very good, nice starters and good fish. Just lovely.
It also had good Bragioli and Chicken maincources.
We had home made Tiramisu, was really good but maybe should have been a bit colder

We recommend this restaurant as it serves good food with moderate prices.
We will revisit for sure.

“Top of our list!”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

You will need to book in advance to get a table on the front side of the restaurant to enjoy the view. But it is well worth it! The waters are the owners, so the attention to detail is second to none and the service is unrivalled. If you want the best steaks in Gozo, this is the place to have it. A venue that you can spend all night in.

“Small restaurant with nice owners”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

The service is like one of the best restaurants, and the waiters/owners are really nice. They don't forget the water, bread or salt like other restaurants in town! Service is a bit slow but they seem to cook everything on demand, so it takes a little time.
The food is good and not expensive at all, plus they serve free antipasti! Had I known the Il-Kartell was that bad, we would have been to La Trattoria again!

“last night on Gozo”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Tried to go to La Trattoria a few times during our 2 week break on Gozo as it was rated number 1 on trip advisor in marsalforn.We finally managed it on our final night ...and it was worth the wait! The night was wild and windy with the med crashing most sea front restaurants but the trattoria is se5 back and raised above the promenade. The place is family run and the service is informal but very attentive. After drinks we ordered fish stew and marrow and bacon soup,duck and whole seabass for mains with a bottle of house red.The soup was absolutely to die for,while the stew was good,it could have packed more of a punch.The house red was pretty decent and accompanied our dishes well. Mains were good with the seabass and duck cooked well along with the veggies and there was just the right amount of interest from the staff.We shared a decent Tiramasu and enjoyed a final drink.The bill was €67 with complimentary tuna and bewn pate appetisers, which need their own mention...top notch,just wish we could have visited earlier ....loved it

“"Wonderful meal in an friendly setting"”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

We stayed in Marsalforn for 2 weeks over Christmas 2012 and had a fantastic holiday. We had
booked into the Calypso for the duration on half board for one of those weeks, which was 1st class. This enabled us to sample the restaurants around the area. La Trattoria was by far the best.
