Heaven in Bugibba this place. We absolutely loved the range, trying the flavours then buying our picks. The staff are fantastic and knowledgeable and happy to get you a flavour you'll love!

The standard of ice cream and sorbet in Malta is very high, however this place has the best of them all and we would even go so far as saying it has the best sorbets we've ever tasted (and we have tasted quite a lot over the years). Dark chocolate and strawberry sorbet was indeed a revelation.

Faced with far too many flavours I wanted to try, I asked the server for a recommendation and she suggested the bajtar tax-xewk sorbet and dark chocolate combination - absolutely perfect match! One protip she recommended that I must share; as the scoops are quite large and a small cup was more than enough for me you can always ask... More

The best ice cream in the world, never eat that good ice cream in my life. We spent one week in Malta and seriously tried almost all. It is sooooo tasty. If you have an opportunity, try dark chocolate with strawbery. Yum yum. We wanted to spend more time in Malta and try all of them :) Worth to go... More

Sottozero makes the best icecream ever. Many varieties are gluten-free. Nice laddies give big generous scoops of perfect icecream, it'a a must try! The price is 1,25 €/scoop. There's also a sitting area in front of the shop, so you can enjoy your icecream uninterrupted.

The wife and I l loved it but it was a bit too. Rich for the kids. I thought that the snickers was great. Both of mine said it was too sweet. No accounting for taste. Maybe for the older teenagers and up Big plus, had wifi and that help keep the young ones happy

We found Sottozero by accident whist walking home from Scandals bar just up the road, noticed it was still open at midnight and since it was 26 Celsius we thought an ice cream would slide down nicely. Flavours were too numerous to choose from with dairy and gluten free options at reasonable prices we couldn't resist. Brilliant.

Fabulous range, generous portions, cheap but delicious. The Baci is the best but close second is the black chocolate orange. Friendly staff, clean and nice seating area. Wish I had one in England!
