I've been here the last two late afternoons/early evening on my own, after a day out diving. It's the most unassuming little place tucked down a side street in Gzira and you HAVE to get here to try out their menu. On my first visit...I had a starter (bruschetta) and a pizza (Bresaola). The following day I returned for a pizza (Boscaiola). Everything was just amazing. It all came out in minutes and there is a lovely waiter who checked up at just the right times and brought drinks out without delay. They have a great dessert menu which I am yet to try out and can't wait to go back.More

This place has some amazing pizza. I don't remember having tasted pizza so good in the last few years! Perfect crust and fresh ingredients. This place is so much worth a visit that we will be coming back here during our vacation.

Small place to sit down which is a shame since the product is well prepared and very nice. You can taste the freshness of the ingredients and is not expensive. Good quality and good value. Can recommend if you are looking for good pizza.

Pulcinella’s is fantastic. The food is like nothing I’ve had before. Mouthwatering. It’s—in fact–THE BEES KNEES!! The staff members are so kind and welcoming and they remember small things about you–for example, I asked for special seasoning and the next time I came, they got...it for me! So sweet!! DO NOT MISS PULCINELLA!!!!!More

Delivery with wolt. 15 euro pizza. my choice was gluten free dough, 4 cheeses, extra cherry tomatos and extra basil. Dough: chewy, dry and sticky; very dry on cheese and tomatos; basil leaves completely burnt. I am from Naples, therefore I know pretty well how...a pizza should simply be and that one was not worth it at all 15 euros. I forwarded my comments through wolt to the pizzeria but they replied only that it was because of the "gluten free" option that the pizza was not good. Now, if you provide this option,the dough should be just good as the classic one, second of all, you don't ignore completely the disappointment of a client. Rude and stupid at business. Bravi! In addition, it's not my fault if I am gluten intolerant. If I can pick an alternative for 15 euros, it shouldn't be a punishment.More

Wide selection of properly made Italian style pizzas, thick border just like in Naples. Small but cozy restaurant with enthusiastic stuff. For anyone who want to enjoy a bite of Italy this is definitely the best place in the area

Today I have been to Pulcinella the Strand and I have to say that I ate the best pizza on the island. The staff is very welcoming and polite. The chef, Vincenzo makes the best pizza fritta. Its like being in Naples. I recommend this...place to anyone who loves pizza and appreciates authentic Italian food.More

This is a new 'branch' of the well-known Pulcinella Pizzeria in Hamrun, Malta! It has just been open for a few months in the Gzira area and this is indeed a wise decision! We discovered that they were true to their claim that 'it’s all...about the quality of the ingredients and of course the crust… ' They have a wide variety of pizza and you will be taken to the origin of pizza - Naples! The pizza crust indeed has complex flavours and we experienced that creamy, chewy, airy & bubbly textures they declare so boldly on the website. That crust is to die for and the simple ingredients placed on top, compliment the delicious base! This gem is worth a visit! The service was great and the restaurant was clean. The staff pay attention to detail and the atmosphere was welcoming and relaxing! If you want an authentic taste of Italy in Malta, find this gem or order online as they deliver too.More
