Il-Panzier PastašŸ

Tasted great aubergine cooked well and pasta cooked to perfection!
itā€™s clear they used premium ingredients (lovely olive oil!) and friendly service (family run).

It wouldā€™ve been perfect with pine nuts added for additional texture!

šŸ’¶ 8,50ā‚¬

They also had another pasta dish on the menu, I believe tomato and herb sauce but did not try so cannot recommend it!
Although slightly limited choice itā€™s tricky to find good choice on Gozo so I still recommend as you have more than one option available straight off the menu!

Pros: Aubergine was delicious , Pasta was perfectly cooked, Friendly service and family run

Cons: Sauce couldā€™ve done with more texture (pine nuts?)

Italienische Speisen, hausgemacht

Verstecktes Restaurant im Hinterhof. Dieser ist etwas in die Jahre gekommen... Gestƶrt haben die zahlreichen Fliegen, wofĆ¼r aber keiner etwas kann. Stolze Preise fĆ¼r durchschnittliche Speisen. Wir haben uns leider nicht sehr wohlgefĆ¼hlt

The loveliest place

I was very excited to go there based on other peopleā€™s reviews and it exceeded my expectations! The most wonderful, attentive owner with lots of stories to tell and true passion for food. The dishes are definitely on the pricey side but they are delicious and it really feels like youā€™re supporting a wonderful, caring family business

Soooo Good

The vegan options were very good and the owner was happy to offer a lot of vegan options. After having spent a week on Gozo we are happy to say this is the very best and authentic vegan food on the island. We canā€™t wait to be back!!

Nice family restaurant with authentic Sicilian did

This is a really cozy family restaurant with friendly staff and they know very well how to prepare vegan food. Their pasta is very good and we loved the special vegan dessert.

Pros: Helpful staff with knowledge of veganism, Delicious pasta, Lovely dessert with figs and almonds

Cons: We were the only ones in the restaurant, Staff was a bit pushy to have us order more, Would have liked to receive bread with the pasta

We stumbled across this little restaurant on accident whilst wondering down the side streets of Victoria and it was one of the best dining experiences I've enjoyed. The business is operated by a couple that have been there for 20/25 years and they instantly made us feel very at home. Everything is made from scratch and so whilst not everything on the menu is vegan they offered to make any pasta dish vegan. There aren't many restaurants offering much to vegans in Victoria that we found but the standards here were exceptional by any metric. I would say their willingness to go above and beyond to cater for vegans earns them 5 stars, especially on a remote island where they might struggle otherwise. I had the pasta with mushrooms and aubergine, asparagus and vegan Panna cotta

Pros: incredible food, exceptional service, cosy homely feel

Cons: none

Excellent family-run restaurant with great vegan options

The charming family that run this restaurant are really knowledgeable about veganism and talk you through the menu items which are suitable for vegans.
We went twice in our short time on Gozo because it was by far the tastiest and best selection of food available in the area.
Everything is cooked fresh and is seasonal, so varies from visit to visit, but we had some excellent starters (soups, antipasti) pasta (including vegan cheese) and desserts (we had a vegan chocolate pot).
The setting is beautiful too - slightly off the beaten track in a covered courtyard. Highly recommended.

Pros: Delicious food, Knowledgeable staff, Great choice

Cons: Minimum spend in the evening (but it's good value)
