I really liked the restaurant as it reminds you of an authentic sicilan tratorria. The location is great and free parking at Tigne point is included. I am glad the management choose decent sized tables as sometimes that might be an issue in other pizzerias, not the case here. I found the staff to be very attentive and service was... More

Stunning views of Valletta, lovely ambiance inside the restaurant, really nice staff, great Pizza that you can see being cooked in front of you and generally a really nice place to dine. Extra points gained when we asked for a particular dessert that was not on the menu and the waiter said: "no problem, I'll get it from next door!"

We came here early on Sunday lunchtime, when there were still plenty of empty tables. We ordered our starters and main courses while the restaurant was filling up with customers but the service was very slow and by the time we finished, the restaurant was empty again. My other half ordered a rare steak which turned up almost raw, still... More

Easy shoreline walk from our hotel in Sliema that led to an excellent dinner. View was outstanding as were the 3 different fish our group sampled. We all had different favorites. This restaurant should be getting higher scores based on our experience

We always loved eating at Cucina del Sole. Great helpfull staff, great food and great view on Valletta! We very very disappointed to learn that it is not allowed to eat outside with children anymore, so you can only eat inside in the airco environment with your small baby. It is because residents of Tigne Point complained about children's noises?!... More

Nothing to criticise about the staff or the outside seating with that enchanting view but I was deeply disappointed in the Barchetta pizza served to me both as regards the low quality of the dough as well as for the oil all over and under it which did not make eating at all pleasant. At Euro 13.45 and with these... More

Always happy to return here. Pleasant surrounds with a great varied menu. Friendly helpful service and a great place to spdine with family, friends or that special person. Moderate to Pricy but given the location not un expected.

We had been looking forward to lunch at Cucina Del Sole after the positive reviews we had read, however we are deeply dissatisfied with the service we received. The place was packed, a good sign we thought but as it turned out this only meant an extremely loud restaurant (so loud we couldn't carry conversation) and service so slow it... More

I love this place, it must be the best restaurant location on the island. We arrived at opening time and the service was faultless due I suspect to the place being empty. We enjoyed lovely fish starters followed by great pasta and pizza all with a nice chilled Prosecco. However, after main courses were cleared and desert menus offered no... More
