Cheap and tasty

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

This restaurant has a fantastic setting right on the seafront, but the staff (apart from one lady at the very end of the meal) were very miserable & the service poor. It was such a shame as the food was actually quite good, but as everywhere else we have visited in Malta the staff have been warm & welcoming, this... More

We only had some wine here, during the afternoon, but they staff were very helpful and the location and views are wonderful. Definitely sit outside on the decking for great sea views.

Went for dinner and the restaurant was nearly booked out at 6:00 pm but the smiling waitress still managed to get us a good seat with views out to Dragonara. Fantastic food and good service.
