Served’s bringing you the sauce on some epic pizza spots across the island for when the cravings hit! For blistered-edged, melted cheesey goodness, here’s our recommended list of pizzerias you MUST try!
1. Claudio’s Pizza
Claudio’s Pizzas was born out of a passion for bringing a taste of Italy to Malta.
Claudio’s love affair with serving authentic Italian Pizza began in 2005. From humble beginnings in Italy to establishing a popular Pizzeria in the heart of Malta, Claudio has remained true to his Italian roots and you can taste the love and passion in every slice!
Claudio’s Pizzas is renowned for its gourmet pizzas, with generous fresh toppings and mouthwatering Sicilian crust, his pizzas are a perfect combination of great taste, tradition and indulgence, loved by both locals and tourists alike!
2. Cafe Cuba
Cuba means magical music and dance, cigar smoking, women and Che Guevara, rum and revolution. The very mention of this Caribbean island conjures up images of
1950s Cadillacs, colonial architecture, Ernest Hemingway sipping his daiquiri in a quiet corner of La Floridita and beautiful bodies swaying sensually to the sound of
mambo and salsa. Cuba means easy living. Life moves slow there and people still have time to sing and play and dance in the streets.
Filled with Chilli Con Carne, Mexican Cheese, mozzarella fior di latte, onions, sliced jalapenos and chilli flakes – it’s no wonder that La Cubana is Cafe Cuba’s star pizza!
3. Vecchia Napoli
A trattoria and pizzeria, Vecchia Napoli boasts what is probably Malta’s favourite pizza, the Calzone Capo di Monte which combines the seductive flavours of truffle and four different Italian cheeses.
It’s baked in the wood burning oven and then topped with succulent slices prosciutto di Parma, crisp rucola leaves and freshly grated slivers of Parmigiano Reggiano.
Amigos’ sesame-crusted pizza is a staple of Maltese takeaway and delivery food. One of the recent additions to their great pizza line-up is the mouth-watering Pistachio & Guanciale Pizza. The Italian-inspired recipe brings together a homemade cream of pistachio and crispy guanciale, over a generous layer of fresh mozzarella and extra virgin olive oil. Simply to die for!
5. Capricci Café
Centrally located in the heart of bustling Naxxar – Capricci Café, Bistro and Pizzeria serves up a tremendous menu of traditional Roman-style pizzas, sweet and savoury baked goods and pastries. What makes Capricci’s pizza so uniquely special is their aged dough, fresh fior di latte, and premium quality ingredients, elevating every meal. The dough is thin and chewy, the tomato sauce is fresh. Capricci ensures something delicious for everyone, with over 60 pizzas on their menu!
Bianco’s believe that there’s one simple formula for success – pick your niche and perfect it! And that’s exactly what this local favourite has done!
“Bianco”, meaning “White”, is what you get when you mix the appropriate intensities of the most vibrant of colours. In much the same way, Bianco’s brings together years of industry experience with a passion for great food, wine, atmosphere and service – to keep giving their loyal patrons what they want and love!

Sally Port takes pride in being true to the Italian philosophy of food; fresh ingredients and authentic recipes prepared with respect.
