“The best pizza in Valletta”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

I was told by a friend to try the calzone here as I got hungry while drinking at the pub...what a surprise this was, easily the best pizza i had in a while. The pizzaiolo is a friendly chatty italian guy called Massimo (hi Massimo) and he does a sublime pizza. The calzone turned up to be as great as my friend described and quite unique too.

Loved it, keep up the good work Massimo.

“A slice of Italy in Valletta.”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

I might have discovered THE place to go to for perfect pizza in Valletta. You won't find anything else listed on the menu of La Vecchia Taranta.

The service is casual and very friendly, the staff are Italian so it was a good opportunity to brush up my Italian.

The location is tiny, the seating area is very limited and located in a rustic environment with wooden beams and a low ceiling.

Flipping through the menu revealed that prices are all very reasonable and no one pizza goes beyond the €10 price tag.We placed our order for two portions of pizza margherita priced at €5.50 each and a bottle of still water for €2.50. (I always try to order a simple margherita the first time I visit a new pizzeria, I believe it's the ultimate test for a good pizza!).

Within a few minutes we could smell the aroma of the pizza filling up the dining area, and things smelled even better up close as soon as the pizza arrived. We tucked in, and loved every bite, the dough is the star of the pizza, crunchy, holds the topping nicely and at the same time easy to fold and eat with your hands.

La Vecchia Taranta specialise in doing pizza, and boy they do it right! But don't take my word for it though, you have to try it before it gets too busy!

“Mediterranean home cooking with an Italian heart”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

A small family run restaurant with an excellent chef who prepares all things Mediterranean. The fish is superb and the pasta dishes are excellent.
