“Breakfast toastie”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

Went here for breakfast, having spotted a board advertising a ham and cheese toastie plus coffee for E3.80. It came with a small salad, the lettuce of which was a bit brown round the edges but otherwise ok. The toast was, for me, underdone as I like my toast to be quite well browned, but this is a personal thing. The waitress was pleasant and chatty and free WiFi is provided.
There was a sumptuous array of cakes and pastries on display, as well as a range of ice creams and ice cream cakes. Must go back later to sample some of these.
Food rating based on ice creams etc, as yet untried.

“Ice Cream is great but check your bill!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

Great ice cream and confectionery but check what you are paying and how much. Was asked to pay 4 euro for a full waffle cone to find out that it was listed 3 euro on the menu. I hate being ripped off so went to ask over the counter. The assistant told me in Italian that it was 4 euros and the difference is not a problem!! I answered that it is a problem if prices are rounded up that way especially for an ice cream. I hope that they rectify this and be precise on their prices so they won't lose customers.

“Best Gelato in Malta!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

'Bella Sicilia' is a Sicilian family run gelato and pastry shop which is truly outstanding. They make everything in house, and their pastries are freshly baked everyday. The pastafrolla tarts covered with custard and fruit are some of the best we've had, and so are their baba', which one can choose stuffed with ricotta or cream. Also their cannoli (traditional with ricotta, with custard and with dark chocolate) are excellent.
Their almond granita is delicious and intensively flavored with nuts, and if paired with a scoop of their almond gelato, makes a perfect combination.
Lastly, their brioches are incredible: although they are supposed to be eaten with gelato, they are so good that we get them plain just to enjoy their flavor.
For all the Italians that are missing home, this is the place to go!
