“Delicious! Huge portions!”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Based on reviews by others, my friends and I decided to try La Cuccagna and boy are we glad we did! I shared a pizza that was so delicious I just couldn't stop eating it, and another friend's veal was so big it barely fit on the plate! The staff were attentive and efficient and we all had a wonderful time. Highly recommended.

“Italian restaurant in Sliema.”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

You can find a lot variety of pizza and pasta dishes. I ate a Marinara pizza. The pizza was good a had a huge variety of mussels, octopus, prawns. Prices are competitive. Good option.

“Wanted to love this place..”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

It seemed to have all the makings for my new favorite restaurant: Gluten free pizza, gluten free beer, reasonable prices, low-key atmosphere. Unfortunately, the gluten free offering just isn't very tasty. I wanted so badly to like it here after all the good reviews, we even went back a second time. But alas, it was not to be. GF pizza crust tasted like the pre-packaged kind and the GF pasta was uninspiring at best, with inedible uncooked pasta clumps thrown in. The beer was lovely. So sad to write a negative review, but felt I should be honest for the sake of the celiac crowd seeking this place out especially...

“Warm welcome, lovely food”
Reviewed 28 March 2014 via mobile

Ate here a couple of times last week (would have been 3, but they are closed on Mondays!) and loved the food. Great portion sizes, without being too much, and well priced. Recommend wild boar ragu linguine if on the specials, spaghetti pescatore and the pizzas! The fried goat's cheese starter was also a hit! Gets busy after 8.30 and was full with people waiting both nights we went. (We arrived 7.30 on the Saturday night as they don't take bookings on that night and we were told we could be guaranteed a table at that time which we were). Majority of customers seemed to be locals/regulars.

“Best place in Sliema”
Reviewed 28 March 2014 via mobile

We lived in an apartment upstairs and ate there twice. Excellent pizzas! Light, crusty and full of flavors. I recommend this to anyone. Mind you, it's a small place so it is wise to make a reservation
