During our holidays, we've been visiting this place almost everyday, even if it was cold. Ice-creams were truly delicious and portions huge. The only drawback was the blond lady serving us on the last day of our stay in Bugibba, she gave us definitely smaller portions than we had before. So the last memories from this place remained a bit... More

I am not a huge fan of ice cream, but every time we go to Malta we always visit Sottozero in the evenings after a meal as in my opinion, this is the best ice cream in the world. Staff are friendly and the huge selection of different flavours is quite staggering. I love the banana flavour best of all... More

Yestarday i went for an ice cream but the temperature was too low and the ice cream wasn't so good. Even the quantity changed. Maybe becaue it was a new staff. But they shoul care more about.

We had a stroll and found this gem which I my opinion is the best ice cream we have tasted. I had a snickers cone and my fiancee had a rum and raisin cone, E1,50 each and it was a small cone, But it was big lots of ice cream. Lots of seats inside from the weather. They cater for... More

Such a vast choice of ice-cream flavours which leaves you wondering which one to choose! My husband and I are regular visitors at Sottozero and we are never disappointed. Just tasted the New York Cheesecake and the Dairy Milk flavour which is so full of delicious hazelnuts. Scoop size is generous too. Would soon drop in again for another ice-cream.

The choice of ice-cream is amazing. They come out with new flavors every week. Servings are very generous, one scoop is enough to fill you up but it is too difficult to choose just one scoop. The strawberry slush is great too since it is made of real blended strawberries and its so thick and amazing. They also have milkshakes.... More
