Description: This historical place dating back to World War One came back to life after an extensive renovation. Situated on the waters' edge one can enjoy the views of Manuel Island and Sliema Fort while towering above are the great Valletta bastions. Our team of chefs created a brilliant Sicilian menu to complement this ambiance. One cannot miss the daily catch caught directly from our fishing vessels cooked AL SALE or ZUPPA adding some calamari and prawns for the best experience ever :)

The restaurant pretends to provide an exquisite italian experience but when you get oil with grilled fish or antipasti of fish that do not have the taste or smell of the sea, you know something is wrong. You might like it if you have never been to Marsaxlokk or a respectable italian restaurant. Excellent view though and the service was very good.

Went as two couples and immediately noticed lack of serving manners by staff pouring wine/water and serving food. Two of four main course dishes sharing one fresh bream were totally inadequate. Of both the baked and fried potatoes ordered only the baked reached us and together with the veg were also grossly inadequate for 4 persons. Complaining to the staff was no use and a final word with the manager brought a small bowl of fries after the plates had been cleared. Sorry, too little too late.

Scoglitti restaurant is a restaurant not to be missed especially for those who loves the scicilian cuisine. Scoglitti specialise in fish as the owner of scoglitti has his own fishing boats but for who s not a fish lover scoglietti can offer also good dishes of chicken , meat , veal , risotti funghi ecc ecc . At scoglietti Apart from the amazing view by the sea and the nice selection of fresh fish .one should also try their special antipasti , and when you come to pasta , its speachless for whatever you choose . Well done scoglitti also for the good service , prices are definetley NOT expensive for the good quality they offer .

Lunched here while having a Valletta break and it was very pleasant. The situation on the sea front is great and I can imagine that at night it is even better. The food and service were good and there were a large number of locals there which is always a good sign though they were admittedly fairly affluent looking locals. A little expensive compared to some local places but well worth a visit.
