“Great value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

We ate here twice on our three night trip to Malta over Easter it was that good!

This is a busy neighbourhood Italian with great food, sensible prices and a buzzing atmosphere.

The seafood pasta was to die for, and the children loved the pizza.

On our final night, the bill for seven including lots (and I do mean lots!) of alcohol came to just about 100 euros.

Would go back here in a heartbeat.

“Best Pizza Place Around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

My favourite pizza place. I remember going there with my parents when I was four years old and still enjoy it to the day. The menu is updated regularly and their latest new addition - the pulled pork pizza is amazing. Keep up the good work!!

“You must book and you must go there”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

The food is awesome - probably the best pizza I have ever had. Tried to get in last time we were in Malta but always fully booked. 2 starters, 2 main courses and a bottle of wine 48 euros. Not flash but very good value and high quality.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

We went to this restaurant after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. We wanted somewhere near our hotel and nothing too fancy as we had been out all day and stopped on way back. We ordered our drinks and food and not sure what was wrong but the waiters were walking around like headless chickens they repeated our drinks order to each other. They eventually came. Two further tables were taken after us and their food arrived. We were still waiting for ours they were oblivious to the fact that we were still without food despite us being next to the till and the waiters walking past and it still was registering that we were still waiting. Eventually I asked if they had forgotten us and they could not apologise enough and said that we could have a drink on the house as it was their fault. Don't know why they forgot our order it was not as if they were full up. The pizzas were nice we just had a bad experience with the service considering this is an old established restaurant the staff did not know what they were doing they were all following each other around and nobody seemed to be in control of one thing. Bad organisation.

Viictor C, Owner at Ir Rokna Restaurant and Pizzeria, responded to this review, 28 April 2014
Thank you your nice comment about our quality of food. As our manager and also the waiter had explained to you, there was a problem with the order chit that was passed on into the kitchen. As soon as you enquired about your order, this was immediately taken care of and in a matter of a few minutes the food was presented to you (according to our POS 28 mins. after you ordered). As you know, the waiter and the manager were quite concerned when this happened as in our restaurant this rarely happens. As you yourself stated we could not apologize enough and drinks were offered. As you chose not to take the drinks offered, we took off the bill the drinks you had with your meal. I can assure you that we treat or guests with the utmost respect and we hope to see you again in our restaurant.

“Yummy pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

We ate here on our first evening in Malta.
My partner had a lovely pizza and I had pasta that I wasn't so keen on.
The male waiters were brilliant, but Petha really seemed like she didn't want to be there.
Other than this lovely pizzas :)
