Villa Arrigo is part of the Arrigo Group of Companies which was founded by Ralph Arrigo, the son of the late Hon. Edgar Arrigo CBE. The Arrigo Companies have always been a family enterprise that has grown from strength to strength. Initially Osborne Caterers was a small catering firm operating from the Osborne Hotel in Valletta, as the business expanded so did the list of its prestigious customers who appreciated the innovative delicacies, the quality of food and professional presentation, becoming leaders in this field by setting standards rather than adopting them. We have served past Popes, foreign dignitaries, state functions, Ministerial and Presidential dinners.
Twenty nine years ago, Osborne Caterers realised that the next step was to provide an exclusive location, moving away from providing our esteemed clientele catering services from the hotel, and turning the nature of the business to a Boutique and exclusive caterer instead of offering the usual fair.
Villa Arrigo is an elegant Villa situated in San Pawl tat-Targa, an exclusive area in the Maltese Islands. This majestic villa offers you a delightful venue for any occasion. The décor, grand marquee and immaculate gardens create a pleasant and tranquil atmosphere. An ideal setting for any special event.
Villa Arrigo was constructed by Cesare Garsin in 1887, originally known as Villa Garcin which belonged to the Garcin Family. After many generations the estate was sold to The Agius family who in 1986 decided to rent the property to Mr. Ralph Arrigo, who changed the name of Villa Agius to Villa Arrigo and the property became one of Malta’s leading event venues. Since 1986 Villa Arrigo has been operating as an upmarket venue, catering for various events, receptions and dinners.
Villa Arrigo is a colonial style villa which has over the last twenty nine years combined a perfect setting for fine weddings and banquets for prestigious events and dignitaries. It is constantly being enriched, bringing the elegance inside the Villa into the beautiful garden.
On a smaller and more intimate scale is Villa Anna Teresa situated in the heart of St Julian’s. A Villa with a strong sense of Maltese character in the structure of the building, its garden and terraces nestled in the oldest part of the village. Both venues are conveniently situated close to churches in a way that could offer guests a short driving distance between ceremony and reception.
