Food and drink
Everything from tea-time sandwiches and sweet pastries to pizza, pasta and serious main courses, this place caters for pretty much everyone at pretty much any eating time other than breakfast.
There is a vaulted cellar-style lower ground floor with a small mezzanine above, with wooden chairs and benches, coloured tablecloths and memorabilia of rural Maltese life on the walls. Or sit under large shady umbrellas in the square outside. Trattoria AD1530 is very welcoming to all ages and nationalities.
Waiters are formally dressed but the atmosphere is informal. Staff are friendly and helpful.
It's in one of Mdina’s few squares between the Cathedral and the main gate. It's a wonderful historic location next to Mdina’s only hotel in a converted palazzo which is owned by the same people as this restaurant.
Sandwiches and pastries cost from about 2.50 euros, pizzas and pastas are around 9 euros, and main courses 15-25 euros.
