A Platter for starter?

Everyting starts with a starter and at Mangia e Ridi we want to delight you with one of our platters, where the cheese, cut meats, or fish will tell you about the flavours of a particular Italian Region and its culinary traditions.

Mangia and Ridi: it’s Pasta time!

We would love to tell you the story of our homemade lasagna, cooked in the traditional Italian way, but words are not enough, you have to come and taste it for yourself.

Or maybe you prefere to try the “linguine allo scoglio” (linguine pasta with mussels, king prawns and clams), one of our speciality which is very popular among locals, even from the South of Malta people come to enjoy it. 

Fresh Fish is definitely a must!

Francesco personally selects the high quality fish every day: mussels, prawns, salmon, sea bream, sea bass and when in season the typical Lampuki will be part of your truly enjoyable fish dish.
