We visited La Sorpresa when we were in Malta in December, and as regular visitors to the island we will definitely be back. The pizzas are fab and there is always the option of taking home what you can't manage in the restaurant, friendly and polite staff really help one to have a very pleasant visit. See you again in...

We dined here twice last week and each time it was a good experience. The pizzas are amazing and on the other occasion my husband had fish and I had chicken breast. The food was lovely and the service was excellent. Looking forward to dining at La Sorpresa again when to go to Malta at Easter.
