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.

Recently a few friends decided that we should meet up for a pizza as it had been a while since we all met up together so we decided to go to one of our favorite pizza places in st Julian's only to find out that it closes on a Tuesday, as I had heard good comments about La Cuccagna I... More

Every Wednesday they hold an indoor BBQ night; drink (Aperol Spritz), BBQ main and dessert for €30 each including buffet of sides/salad. The BBQ idea itself wasn't any good, too much smoke so they moved the food to the kitchen anyway but when it came out it was very nice. Next time I'll stick to the regular menu. They were... More

I had gone for a long walk and was looking for somewhere informal but with great food and I came across La Cuccagna. The atmosphere inside was convivial and the food was great. I had a Maltese dish with a bit of a twist and walked home very happy!

Great pizzeria and their gluten free option is the best i have tasted for some time. Take out or eat in depending on your mood. Lovely restaurant to get together with friends for a chat.

Today was my first time at La Cuccagna - on father's day in Malta. The restaurant was fully-booked but seating was extremely comfortable and well-spaced and also the restaurant well-aired. Between 3 people, we had Pizzotto for starters - which was delicious, followed by Argentinian Ribeye and one of us had Lobster and Prawn Spaghetti. We concluded our meal with... More

We were five the food was well prepared, the service was a little slow due to the heavy bookings but was well worth waiting for the food. Will definitely visit again.

I've been visiting La Cuccagna for more that 6 years and their quality has been consistently excellent, one of the best restaurants in Malta with legendary pizza and fresh seafood (and a newly launched menu). Andrew, the owner and genuinely nice guy, is a foodie himself and it shows in everything they do. And as a traditional warm family trattoria... More
