Perfect for Pizza!

I ordered the 'PIZZA CON SOFRITTO DI SALAME E CIPOLLAI' and my Girlfriend the 'Bella Malta', gorgeous pizzas baked to perfection. Made the proper way (stone baked) and fresh ingredients! Only slight problem was a drink was ordered and we had to eventually ask a waitress where it was as it never... read more

Very good selection of Pizzas made in Italian style. Been here several times, always enjoyed the food. No wonder most of guests here are Italian. Affordable too.

If you don't make it to Italy on your trip (or are missing it already), you must visit La Vecchia Naopli. The wait outside the door is worth it (and doesn't often take too long) - has a great selection of salads and pizza, great and affordable wine. Do not miss out! We loved it so much, we did a...

After reading the positive reviews here, I was certainly looking forward to a pasta dinner at La Vecchia Napoli. As the waitress took my order ( pasta dish with the prawns ) I made it very clear that I wanted the pasta cooked well through, ie not ' al dente '. She took a note of this as she took... More

If you like fresh pasta, you will LOVE theirs!! Located in Sliema, you can then enjoy a nice walk on the promenade taking in the fresh sea breeze!

Tasty, affordable and easy! Vecchia Napoli is popular with tourists and locals alike and never disappoints. T he wood-fired pizza is delicious and it's worth noting that two other nearby cafes, Cafe Cuba and La Cucina del Sol, which are under the same ownership, both offer the same yummy, wood-fired delights perfected here at the original location.

The restaurant serves good pizzas but the service from the staff needs improving at times bordering on the rude.
