We at La Vela Restaurant pride ourselves in the fact that our passion for food and wine has been thoroughly appreciated throughout the years.

Over the years we have won a number of awards which we were always honoured to receive. From the years 2015 till 2019, we have won the Silver Spoon Award by Wines & Restaurants of Malta consecutively. These awards present scores based on a range of aspects. These include dish quality, presentation and preparation. It also takes into consideration the establishment’s ambience, service and cleanliness. Apart from that, it also regards value for money.

We were awarded the The Definitive(ly) Good Guide Awards for the years 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 alongside the Best Local & Foreign Wine List 2019 Award. An award based on what frequent restaurant visitors rate each restaurant for. These give attention to service, food and ambience. Being the people’s choice when it comes to these three crucial features is something which honours us greatly.

We have been officially recognised as a bona fide Italian Restaurant by the “Ospitalita Italiana", set up by the Italian Chamber of Commerce. In 2019, we were awarded the Eccellenze Italiane Award.

Apart from all that, we also hold a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, awarded to us thanks to our customers’ glowing reviews.
