The most delicious ice cream ever

Sottozero is very welcoming. The service is excellent and the ice cream is the best I have ever had. They serve a vast choice of flavours, sugar free, gluten free, fruit flavours and also some unusual flavours like 'Helwa' which is my current favourite. They have now extended the premises and... read more

Lovely gelato with gluten free options for cones and a different freezer for gluten free icecream. Always be careful though, they sometimes forget and put a wafer in your icecream anyway!

It was like a mad house trying to get served. No queuing system and people pushing. You can barely see the ice creams. Apparently mine was lactose free but it was labelled. Good size scoop. If it had flavours on wall, better labelling and a queuing system it could be excellent.

The best ice cream we have ever had without a doubt. Had all the flavours you could think of, and they were amazing. The young women working was great and very helpful in explaining the flavours to us. We will definitely be back the next time we visit Malta.

The main reason I visit Malta is because of Sotto Zero's amazing ice cream! There is so much choice and the choice are extremely friendly! The shop is a bit too small however their tasty ice cream over shadows this! Highly recommended!

We make a nightly visit here when we're on holiday for a apres dinner scoop of lovely gelato. There are so many flavours, you never have to eat the same one twice - although the peach and the cherry flavours usuall get a second go! A must for gelato lovers!

Wow spoilt for choice! You HAVE to go here! So many dairy free and sugar free ice cream and sorbets. My favourite was the dairy free Cherry ripple! They also do gluten free cones. Very reasonable prices and oh so tasty! Really wish they had branches in UK too!
