Gave this a try and all seemed good. Started well and ordered in good time. Food came out pretty quickly and it was very, very nice.. The service though was all good but seemed to lack feeling and it felt very inattentive. At the end of the meal we had to ask twice for the bill and we felt forgotten even though there were only 3 table occupied.. Have been in Malta for a few days and is most expensive place for a large beer..

We took a friend from abroad for a quick dinner to la cuccagna. The service was splendid and the waiters made us feel at home. This was also accompanied by a first class pizza. I really recommend one of the chefs specialities.

Excellent food - particularly pasta. I found this in my guidebook and it was full of locals which is a good sign. Probably worth booking as it does get busy.

Towards the end of my holiday in Malta i needed comfort food and the Cuccagna was just down the road from our hotel. We had noticed it on our first night but it was so busy we had to pass it by. we remembered later in the holiday and made sure we were early, which was just as well as this was obviously a very popular choice with the locals too!
It was extremely reasonable as most of the pasta dishes were under 10 euros with generous portion sizes and tasted amazing. My lasagne was the best I have eaten anywhere, and i even asked for the béchamel recipe (which has not been forthcoming so far)!!
We had a 2 course meal with drinks to start and a good quality wine and the bill was under 60 euros!! Amazing food i just wish we found this earlier in our holiday and not on the last day!
