Good food in large portions

We were in Malta visiting family and this restaurant was just near where we were staying so we popped in for lunch and cocktails. My partner was not a great fan of the cocktails but I thought that they were OK. I had the veal tortellini and that was fantastic, great flavours and very filling... read more

We found iL Fortizza's Full English breakfast to be the best priced around (at 4.99 euros at the time) and, as the restaurant also happened to be across the road (on the Tower Road boardwalk) from our hotel in Sliema, we indulged a couple of times! Nothing like sitting in their large semi-open air terrace overlooking the sea, while fortifying... More

Ate there on several different occasions. The sea-view is astonishing, and the food was served promptly each and every time.Tried various different dishes. Friendly staff and reasonable prices.

We reserved a table for 12 and in the same morning we were going I needed to add some more guests and to my surprise my table was not booked however that was sorted out in the end. The orders for drinks and food were taken and served well, however we had to serve our own wine at a table... More

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 service. The restaurant has a very... 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 !
