Service leaves a lot to be desired

Went for a pizza yesterday and was made to wait a full 45 minutes to have it delivered! And a very ordinary pizza it was, served half cold. The restaurant management realised their mistake and offered us a drink on the house, which we accepted, but this in no way mitigated the very shoddy... read more

Very disappointed by the food in this restaurant. I ordered Pappardelle ai Gamberi and my bf Veal Saltinbocca. My pasta felt like it was heated in a microwave, the sauce wasn't bad but the actual pasta was gummy and half of it was cold. My bf meal was nothing special. Also the waitress who cleared our table, who evidently saw... More

Went to il-Fortizza on a Friday at 10pm. It took quite a while to get someone to take our order. Our orders were 2 Caesar Salads and Classic burger. The soft drinks they originally served us were flat and tasted diluted so we asked for a replacement. The replacement drinks were no better. The salads arrived quickly and were good,... More

Great place to go for lunch to have a tasty pasta with seafood. Service is most of the time quite fast and the card of dessert is very attractive !

Apart from the nice decoration inside, you also can sit outside and enjoy de sea views while having a tasty meal. The menu is quite wide so you have different options, soup, pasta, pizza, meat...what we like the most was the service. We had a foreign waitress extremely polite and helpful, that made a real difference!!

Have eaten here a few times, the food is always excellent and the service normally good. I recommend any of the pastas and the chicken burger is a good choice if you're starving :) Nice location on the seafront. Good atmosphere. Interesting building - in one of the old forts.

The first time my partner and I visited Malta (Dec '13), we stayed in St. Julians and visited Sliema to go for a meal. The first thing we noticed about Il Fortizza, was the distinctive building, making it look like some sort of fort. We had a look at the menu outside and all looked good so we decided to... More
