Sicilian at heart


Where it started

Ever since bringing their culinary talents to Malta, the two brothers have endeavored to distinguish themselves in the restaurateur scene thus earning them a well merited reputation for quality.

Reared in the bustling streets of Ragusa during the seventies, Riccardo and Luca bring to the table all the exuberant creativity and rebellious zeal for adventure and discovery that from early childhood had earned them the nickname ‘i Monelli’ among family and friends…

Add to this the distinctive Sicilian flare for hearty food and ease of living, spice it all up with a dash of bravado and there emerges the unique blend that is sure to make your stay at the ‘Monelli’.
