With weekly imports of fresh ingredients from Sicily, native Italian chefs and a typical wood-burning pizza oven, I Monelli is the place to turn to if in the mood of genuine Italian cuisine.
I Monelli is a genuine Italian/Sicilian restaurant situated in Paceville, St Julians. We do not use the word 'genuine' lightly here considering the chef is Sicilian, they import fresh ingredients weekly from Sicily and they dish out some of the best Neapolitan pizzas in Malta from a wood burning oven.
The bright and contemporary design of the restaurant makes I Monelli a pleasure to dine in, whether for lunch or dinner. With freshly prepared antipasti counters, wine racks displaying a variety of Italian wines, the pizzaiolo area and oven clearly visible and with both indoor and outdoor dining options, this eatery ticks all the right boxes.
The menu at I Monelli includes some delicious home-made Italian antipasti that are freshly prepared on a daily basis. These are a must before indulging into the 'secondi'. A choice of various pasta, pizza and meat options are available and your pick really depends on the mood of the day as all come highly recommended. There is also a daily 'specials' board on display. The common denominator for each of the dishes is the authentic imported ingredients. These include mozzarella from Caserta (Campania region) known as Scamorza, Ricotta Salata from Sicily and Prosciutto di San Daniele from Northern Italy amongst others.
The exquisite food is accompanied by a friendly and attentive service which will keep you happy whether enjoying a lunch with friends or an intimate dinner with your partner. A final recommendation is to try one of their sinfully scrumptious desserts at the end of your meal.
