I simply love this place! From the first time I walked in I felt very welcome and comfortable. The whole setting has a certain charm to it and staff are happy-go-lucky and flexible with your requests. Their Argentinian rib eye is mouth-watering as is their Pizzotto, Quinoa and Lentil Grilled Chicken Salad, fresh fish of the day, apple pie, and... More

Very welcoming staff. Shown a table straight away & left to order at leisure. No pressure to order extras which is a welcome change from many places we've eaten at. Great pizza & chilled beers. Food arrived quickly and there was plenty of it! Nice family atmosphere and wide range of clientele from locals to tourists all enjoying the food... More

We ate at Cuccagna on the first night of our holiday. The place was busy and the atmosphere good. We both had pizza which was an average price and very good but the drinks seemed a little expensive. Some tables appeared to receive a complementary lemoncello after their meals but we didn't so I assume we didn't spend enough

I've ordered the Argentinian steak and my fiancée ordered the lobster burger and her brother ordered the normal beef burger the portion was really huge and filling and the food is wonderful. Price was slightly higher €24 for steak €20 for lobster burger but it's worth it because of the massive portion. It had a homely feel at the restaurant... More

La Cuccagna was nearby for us so we decided to try it out. The pizza was delicious and the traditional pasta carbonara was mind blowing. One of the best italian culinary experiences I have had. We then had a few more days in Malta and went back to La Cuccagna and our second experience of it was as good as... More

Very busy with lots of locals which is always a good sign. Welcoming atmosphere and excellent service. We both had traditional rabbit dishes which were well prepared if a little large in portion size. House red very drinkable.

My second visit to this lovely restaurant. Fantastic for pizza and pasta but all other dishes are excellent too. Good selection on menu.Service was excellent with manager coming over to check all was well. Clean, good atmosphere no need to book. Steps going down but help was at hand with pushchair.

A family owned restaurant in a popular location, just seconds away from Malta's famous promenade. Down to earth and friendly owners. Restaurant staff well mannered, friendly and efficient. Been going there since it opened ,for more than 20 years, and it still excellent. Fine food. Top restaurant.

Had pizza lombardia with mozzarella di buffala. It was delicious like all the other pizza variations I have previously tried. Attentive staff and welcoming atmosphere.
