Make no mistake, we've tried plenty of ice cream during our holiday here in Malta, but this is the best!! Great flavours, great service, great prices - make sure you find sotto zero!!

“Bellisimmo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

Apologies to an Italians if I've spelt that wrong but it's an excellent gellato house. As good as if not better than any I've visited in Italy

This evening alone there were about 15 people queuing for gelato and 30 eating

There doing sown thing right and well done

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

The best ice-cream you could ever taste, with such a wide variety of flavours that it's difficult to choose! I keep returning every time!

“Fantastico...!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

Don't bother visiting any of the other gelato outlets in Bugibba, just go to this one...fantastic ice cream and wide selection of flavours....well worth the money as they do bigger portions than any other outlet.....my favorite flavour was Amerena (I think that is what it was called) which is black cherry and I also love chocolate (they even do a dark chocolate which tastes like Bournville Dark Chocolate) yum yum...the best ever !
It is very popular with the locals and there is always a queue, so best get down there quick....!

“You dont need to go to Italy for good ice cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

Just had a memorable ice cream at Sotto Zero Buggiba Malta. As good as if not better better than any I have had in Italy. Try the cassata and ricotta and fig.. brilliant.. pure magic.
The portions are excellent value for money, and the girl serving is sweeter than all the ice cream put together. Brava, You do an outstanding job.
