Great food and service

We were a large family group of 19 and I had expected delays in the food arriving, however, even though it was a Sunday and the tables were full, the food did not take long and the service was really great. The food tasted yummy too!

This was my first visit at this restaurant, it was for birthday party. First of all the location and the view are very evocative, the views of Valletta are stunning. And the restaurant in itself had a nice and relaxed ambiance. The service was great, considering we were a big group we were promptly served and the staff were very... More

There are restaurants which give you a good service and there are those rare few which give an excellent one. La Cucina Del Sole is one of the latter. My partner and I went there for the first time and all we could think of is that everything was perfect. From the way the reservation was handled, the welcome, the... More

Visited this trattoria for lunch for the second time. We had been there a couple of years ago and enjoyed a delicious pizza, but this time round we were disappointed. We ordered 5 different pizzas and 3 of them had ingredients missing...plus the pizza dough was nothing like the original Italian one. The apple pie left much to be desired... More

Went for Easter Sunday Lunch. Set menu was vast with a lot to choice from. Food was great and service was excellent, even on a busy day such as Easter Sunday. The management team definitely knew what they were doing. Would recommended it to anyone.

Went on a Saturday evening for a lovely dinner with 2 of my friends. Food was excellent, we all had the sirloin steak and it was of a perfect texture, with side dishes being very good too. Great service by staff. Will definitely go again!

Went on a Sunday evening (big mistake), with a group of eight. Service was attentive and speedy but food dire. All starters were stone cold, and the bread was crap. I expect a lot better bread espacially from a place which is supposed to excel at pizza. Some of us ordered the steak as a main course. Well, I have... More

Well satisfied and will vsiit again... More
