Trattoria AD 1530

With "amazing pizza" and "impeccable service", patrons continue to visit and enjoy.

Trattoria AD1530 is set in an idyllic historical piazza in the romantic walled silent city of Mdina and forms part of the prestigious Xara Palace Relais & Chateaux. Sit outside under the large umbrellas in the seating area lined with wonderfully green plants and shrubs. Relax, unwind and enjoy the majestic surroundings while savouring casual dining fare carefully prepared with an exquisite twist. The emphasis here is on originality and supreme quality with a menu which offers a range of choices yet is concise and includes easily identifiable colour coded symbols for every possible allergen in each fabulously plated dish. The atmosphere is tranquil and laid back; be ready to enjoy yourself!

Start off your meal with the Focaccia Campania, or try the delectable shallow-fried chicken livers with a unique onion and orange jam. Next, enjoy the local rabbit, traditionally fried with garlic and thyme, or try the Trattoria A.D. 1530 Pizza. Meanwhile sip a colourful non-alcoholic cocktail or indulge in a divine bottle of wine. For the grand finale, select a luscious dessert such as the Deconstructed Tiramisu from the tray brought to your table to tempt you; all the desserts are made in-house specifically for the Xara Palace.
