Very good food

La Sfoglia is located on a small square just outside the old market hall. When we went there it was very quiet with just another couple dining there. The food was very good. For starters we had rabbit liver, mussels and 2 oysters each. We got an extra two oysters without being charged since they... read more

Nice place, with amazing food and a very good service. From the wine list we picked out a fantastic Ripasso della Valpolicella. The desserts are fantastic too. Suggested.

After reviewing the menu outside the entrance for a few minutes my family and I walked inside and was promptly told that the restaurant was full. This was after 4 men walked passed us to be seated. As I stood there we saw that half of the restaurant was... More

We think La Sfoglia is one of the best restaurants in Valletta though we walked passed it a few times before we ventured in. Not sure quite what put us off but we're so glad we gave it a try! We have Sunday lunch here occasionally and regularly stop by for a light midweek lunch. All the food is good... More

Big group for Christmas lunch, so very appreciated that food was served all in one go and at the right temperature. Rib eye was as per order, medium to rare. Would suggest that they review their prices as a bit on the expensive side.
