La Cucina Del Sole Restaurant, Sliema

Located in Tigne Point, Sliema, La Cucina Del Sole restaurant is a little slice of pizza heaven. I would go so far as to say it's the best pizza on the island: beautifully simple, fresh, wood-fired, thin crust perfection.

Part of the Kitchen Concepts family of restaurants (every one of which we have visited has been superb), Cucina enjoys stunning views of the Tigne Point pool and Valletta skyline. I can't use enough superlatives to describe this restaurant, so just know that the service, food, and atmosphere at Cucina are perfect. And with pizzas starting at just €6 you have no excuse not to go.

Plus (this one is for your ladies) their tables are padded underneath, so when you cross your legs you won't knock your knees. It's the little things, right?

Cucina is currently open Tuesday to Sunday 7-11 pm, and Saturday, Sunday & public holidays from 12-3 pm with indoor and outdoor (poolside terrace) dining. They also do pizza delivery from 6 pm. The restaurant offers daily and seasonal specials, and their regular menu can be found here. Our favourite pizzas are the Piccantina, the Margherita, and for meat lovers, the Kurubin. Their ricotta and pear torte is also a great way to end a meal. Remember to book ahead on Sundays and public holidays when the restaurant is almost guaranteed to be full.

See you there!

  1. Mmmm - who doesn't love a good pizza! We do Sunday Night, Pizza night here and walk down to a little restaurant which also has a wood-fire grill - they don't look quite as fancy as above, nor would you ever find fresh spinach but they're good nonetheless. (I suppose everything is relative!)

  2. Sounds divine. And that Swordfish carpaccio pizza looks so interesting, I'd love to try it! And padding under the tables? It definitely is all the little things that add up to a great dining experience :)


  3. Looks delicious! I have been meaning to go here for awhile :) Payday soon!


Let's talk.
