I can say that this is the best ice cream that I have EVER eaten, and I've eaten them everywhere. Tastefull, a lot of flavours, huge scoops, reasonable prices! Congratulations

A must visit when in the area. Flavours include the popular ones as well as a wide range of others such as Raffaello, Oreo, Kit Kat, etc. One can mix flavours according to his/her tastes. Prices are reasonable, with the Maxi Cup (largest available, and it is HUGE) at €4.50. Sottozero is in a side road very close to the... More

We come and visit our friend in Bugibba every year and I always look forward to some gelato whilst there. I've had gelato from various places in Bugibba but Sottozero wins hands down on taste and texture. It even beats gelato in Italy itself! My favourite flavour from Sottozero is the Kit Kat one although the Snickers and Maltesers ones... More

Been there several times and with different people, all loved the ice cream. It is hard to decide which flavor to go for as the choice is amazing, but I have found my ultimate favorite! Dark chocolate. Delicious!!

I noticed this place on our way to he main square on our first night - mainly because it was full of customers inside and lots of people enjoying a late night treat! The choice of flavours is amazing, apparently the Pistachio Gelato is "the best ever" and Snickers was just the nuts according to hubby! I had the after... More

Wonderful choices and great taste, so creamy and smooth and the staff are lovely! The shop itself is small, providing a few tables and chairs outside but you are only a short walk to the beach or the main square for a lovely view. We visited mid afternoon in August and the place wasn't too busy, enough to get a... More

Found this little gem on the first night of our holiday. Visited every night after dinner for our pudding. Many flavour's to choose from, including sugar free and gluten free. Prices were good and you got a good scoop in your cone or tub.

by far the best ice cream shop in Malta. You can find a vast variety of ice creams including sugar free and glutine free. if you are an ice cream lover its a must to take an ice cream from sotto zero and have a walk on the buggibba promenade . its an amazing experience.
