We can also plan unforgettable Lunch and Dinner Parties, Barbecues, Pizza and/or Pasta Parties with as many varieties as you may wish as well as help you in celebrating any special occasion. You will also be pleased to know that you may order our freshly made pastas for you to cook at home. We will be delighted to give our clients ideas as to how to prepare it.You will certainly find that our "peice de resistance" is our fantastic Zuppa di Cozze with fresh Mussels being delivered on a daily basis.Our Bar & Wine List compliments our delightful Menu. Clients may choose to dine inside the Trattoria or outside, in the gardens.Our facilities include a room for private dining, baby nappy changing facilities, toilets for people with special needs and most important of all, a private parking area at the Palazzo Pescatore grounds, which is offered free of charge.We are, of course, associated with the famous Ta'Marija Restaurant in Mosta.
