Not many pizzeria s in malta have managed to stand the test of time but cuccagna smashed this on all counts and with its amazing food (best pizza on the island by miles and their penne Farouk OMG) attention to detail family run atmosphere and the constant monitoring of service and quality by the owner s Andrew Josianne and their...

We were a group eating at the Cuccagna and all agreed food was great . However all also agreed that dessert left much to be desired. Portions were small and quality could have been much better considering the dessert prices. It was a pity finishing off a good meal with a disappointment.

I last reviewed La Cuccagna in September 2012. I am glad to say that they still offer a very good pizza, and have now also more to offer on their menu, including daily specials. They are very well known for their very good tasty (thin crust) pizza.

Shared the special ribeye for 2, very very good. Started with the calamari which was also excellent. No hesitation to recommend this restaurant. Causal dress as I am sure the pictures show.

Went there for dinner on a Friday evening - didn't open until 7 and no problem getting a table early. Best pasta I have eaten in years - spaghetti with rabbit. Mrs W had the pork cheek risotto - very good risotto but meat didn't add anything. Good service - would definitely go again if in Sliema.

We have eaten at LCuccagna on numerous previous visits, but this time we were disappointed. The waitress was grumpy and uncommunicative; the pizza base was under cooked/raw in places and the 'spaghetti in rabbit sauce' was very thin, watery and distinctly lacking in rabbit!

The area is over run with restaurants serving pasta, pizzas and burgers. While this restaurant has a similar menu, it is a pleasant surprise tucked just round the corner in a side street. Unlike the many bland restaurants on the sea front, this place feels as though you are stepping into a bit of Malta. It's a bit of a... More

Service was not great and the food distinctly average. Much better options nearby. Menu was rather limited and the white wine not cold enough.

I saw it on an app and thought it looked lovely. A two minute walk, easy to find and although busy the staff found me a table. Good service. Nicely balanced menu and ok prices. I ordered pizza with a side of chips. It arrived in a good time, about 10 mins and was a lovey pizza. I think the... More

Good quality honest Italian food in atmospheric surroundings slightly away from the main tourist trail. Reasonably priced too.
