Never disappoints

We visited La Cuccagna whilst we were staying in St Julians bay. It was a restaurant we visited a number of years ago when we were last in Malta and nothing has changed, pleasant but simple surroundings, a great atmosphere and attentive service. We opted for the Pizza (what else!) and it was... read more

Always obliging and helpful. We go back time and time again because we know we can have a good meal at a very reasonable price. It might get very busy at times but it is worth waiting for. Only criticism is that tables are quite close to each other.

Pizza was tasty (however bit burned), we ordered Cuccagna pizza with prosciutto - thin crust and good quality cheese. Unfortunately the place itself is not pleasant, tables are too close to each other so waiter have to squeeze through them. It's not nice that someone is rubbing against your table while you're eating. We didn't feel comfortable and because of... More

We were lucky to get a table just before those who came in had to wait. I had spaghetti with rabbit sauce - very tasty. My wife had a beef salad; the beef was quite spicy, but nice. Coffee was very good.

It's a lovely restaurant. The food was excellent with generous portions. The service was very good. Really enjoyed our meal, which cost about €40 for starter, main and a few drinks for both of us. We were there just after 19:00 and it filled up very quickly.

I visited with my 95 year old mother. The staff were very helpful with her wheelchair and helping her down the steps to a table. She does not have a large appetite and we were given good advice on portion size. Good food served with care for the customer.
