Had a booking for a table of six. We were nicely welcomed and seated. Ordered antipasti to share and then main courses. All food was great. A bit on the expensive side but well worth the money.

If you arrive in daytime in Mgarr and don't explore it at night you could easily miss the Triq Manuel de Vilhena as it is concealed from view by the Gleneagles Bar and the and the wall as you walk up from the harbour. However at night this street -more of of a passage really- contains half a dozen bars... More

We usually always liked the food at Sicilia Bella and always recommended the place to family and friends. We just came back from a dinner at Sicilia Bella and wanted to try something else other than seafood. I choose the macharoni with Salsiccia e Funghi, service was quick but the plate only had a taste of fresh cream. I couldn't... More

Everything was perfect: the complimentary Bruschetta and chocolate liquor, the house wine the home made ravioli stuffed with fish and the almond ice cream. A meal to be savoured and remembered. The staff were friendly and helpful and the service was quick. It's just across from the Gozo ferry, so can make a perfect end to a day trip from... More

I stopped in for a light 'Sicilian' lunch (short walk from Gozo Ferry Port) and was greeted warmly by a very pleasant and accommodating hostess who told me they would accept my US$ as didn't accept Amex. After ordering, I was brought a delicate bruschetta with baby arugula - it was perfect. I ordered their house white wine which is... More

I found the food quite good at Sicilia Bella and the service was ok. What is good about this restaurant is that you can leave your car at Cirkkewa, get on the Gozo boat and when you arrive, you are just a stone's throw away from the restaurant. We usually go there during the summer evenings, then go back to... More

Service was extremely slow. We were left waiting for long periods without anyone asking if we wanted another drink or anything else form the menu. The food itself was just passable. I had the Pesto pasta which was a bland creamy sauce with an unremarkable filling.

I love it when knowledgable staff can guide you through a menu and explain the elements you don't recoghnise and do so without making you feel stupid. There were a number of items on the menu here that we hadn't encountered before and it gave us a chance to try the things we really fancied. So glad we did. Every... More

We went there with my girlfriend. I'm from Italy and I was expecting to find food and service of comparable quality. I was VERY disappointed. We ordered fresh fish, fried calamari and a Sicilian dessert (cassata). The fish was completely tasteless. The cassata was way too sweet and even my girlfriend (who doesn't know how the original one tastes) asked... More

We had more than a couple of dinners here this month and the food was extremely good. We love our fish and there was plenty of that - nice, fresh and well cooked with garlic and wine. Some of the pastas are unusual and great tasting. The deserts are DIVINE. I'm in my element when it's time for puddings -... More
