Very enjoyable experience, very good food and service. I was invited to a friend's surprise birthday party which was celebrated in the upper room of this restaurant. We were about 25 people and nobody had any reason to complain about the venue, the food or the service. It's not the first time I visited this restaurant and the food and... More

We were in Malta for several weeks and used this place several times. Although it was March, we sat outside and also in when a bit cool. Friendly and quick service and not too expensive for excellent pizzas and very cheap local wine! We were always on foot.

This is a great restaurant. Andrew the owner tries to do everything as perfectly as possible and so one is guaranteed a good dining experience. We enjoyed the house wine - which Andrew told us was made by his dentist!! - as well as a range of essentially Italian starters and mains. Everything was delicious. The only area for improvement...

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.

Thank Rob S
