Description: La Buona Trattoria del Nonno represents the culinary experiences and sentiments of the owner, Ben Muscat Snr. Having set up several successful restaurants in the past, several which have become household names, he decided to come out of retirement in 2012 to develop his desire to present to his esteemed clients his perception of a genuine Trattoria, based upon his extensive experience. The cuisine is based on slow oven baking in our Wood Oven serving both mouth-watering Pizzas and slow baked items like Lara's Spare Ribs & Suckling Pig. We also offer items from the Grill Section, a variety of Fresh Pasta dishes, daily Fresh Fish & a variety of salads. There is no pre-cooking in the mind of il-Nonno. Your food is cooked only against order! This, of course, needs its proper time, so at times there may be some waiting. You will be the first to state that the food is amazing and definitely worth waiting that little bit extra!

Where to start from?! Probably the 100th time I visit this restaurant. Every time is better than the last, from the service, to the food, to the atmosphere. Recent additions of kitchen staff really took the food to the next level. Front of house always very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Very good quality for money and generous portions. I personally love this place because it caters well for any occasion or age. It can be the perfect place to break the ice on a first date, plan a staff party or a family get together. The restaurant also keeps up their clientele through events such as Mondays with Kane and Welly Wednesdays! Bookings recommended :)

Best food ever but most of all the best ever service. Apart from the food being stunning the waiters are just all so good looking (it’s a girl speaking).. and so talented.

Perfect for a girls lunch
