Mediterranean Pizza, Pasta & Grills Lounge Bars

If in the south of Malta, Ferretti is easily your best choice to dine out. Set in a modernly converted battery, both indoor and outdoor areas are great. Can take anything from a pizza to a fully fledged Mediterranean three course meal here.

The setting of Ferretti is very hard to beat. A restaurant situated in the South of Malta located within an original 18th century battery complete with bridge, moat and fortifications, gloriously redecorated to marry the old and the new. Half of Ferretti's sell must be the uniqueness of the place itself.

Ferretti overlooks Birzebbuga's bay with the picturesque sight of small boats moored across during the day and the lit-up Malta Freeport serving as a surreal backdrop in the evenings. The original structure and typical stone masonry of the historic fort have been restored and complemented with the intelligent use of steel, glass and modern finishing that create a lovely balance that is very pleasing to the eye. The large decked patio is perfect for al fresco dining.

But Ferretti is not all about looks. The restaurant serves a vast assortment of Mediterranean cuisine. From meats to fish, pasta to pizzas, pastries to desserts. Whatever the occasion or your mood, the place lends itself well. A casual pizza night over a fine glass of wine with friends, a romantic three course dinner inclusive of champagne or pasta for a quick business lunch...the kitchen at Ferretti adapts to various needs. The good bottle selection of wines available are stored in a cellar that used to serve as the battery's water reservoir with perfect temperature conditions.

Considering its beautiful setting, it is no surprise that Ferretti has also quickly become popular for private and business functions, be it a stand-up reception or a formal sit-down meal.

If visiting the South of Malta, and Ferretti could be reason enough to visit, this place is a recommended option. There is something magical about being entertained in a place that breathes history...it might be a cliché but 'if only these walls could talk'.
