We visited iL Fortizza on a number of occasions sometimes just for a quick coffee or drink and also on a couple of occasions for evening meals. Would particularly recommend the pasta dishes and also the local wine. Staff friendly and welcoming. Would definitely visit...More

I was really happy with the rabbit, my boyfriend thought that the steak had some unused potential. The cakes were lovely and the staff were friendly, however, there were too much staff and they had special tasks which made it all very ineffective and things...More

Had a meal in here on a Friday evening. Restaurant was quite busy but plenty of tables available inside or outside. Massive bowl of Paella and a pint of Cisk for 15 Euros.

We sat down and were not even greeted for more than 15 minutes. The food was OK but would not go back again. Many other better options along the beach in Sliema.

Situated in a lovely area by the sea. This was our second visit to this restaurant. The pizza is great along with the selection of desserts. We had cake which was lovely! This place is perfect for a relaxed dinner.

Two of us ate dinner here, later in the evening around 8-8.30pm. There is a Shish-a lounge in the front which was a bit confusing, but we walked past to the restaurant further along the pavement. We were promptly seated and drinks order taken. They...More

I agree with Phil, but worth the effort between the food and view. It made you want to stay longer and relax. I'm back in MI and it's 62 degrees today. If you're there soak it up and relax and enjoy the sun and fresh air.
