Wish we had this in the UK!

*Would be 5 stars if allowed
This was one of my favourite parts of the Holiday! They have an entire cabinet with vegan ice creams and all cones and biscuits are vegan friendly. I had vanilla, pistachio and chocolate with wafer cone and biscuit. Wish we had one in the UK 🖤

Pros: Amazing ice cream, Lots of vegan options, Friendly staff

Vasta scelta di gusti vegani

Da Italiana ho mangiato gelati vegani più saporiti e cremosi, ma assolutamente da apprezzare la vastità della scelta e rimane comunque un buon gelato 🍦

Nothing special

Maybe it was because of my high expectations regarding all the positive reviews here, or because I'm not a huge fan of Italian icecream, but I was a little dissapointed. They had about seven vegan flavours: chocolate, pineapple, mango, pistachio, strawberry, peach and vanilla. I didn't think these flavours are anything special really, except for the pistachio. I had the pineapple, peach and pistachio. Nice but nothing special. Prices are okay.

Pistachio ice cream!

We got the dark chocolate and strawberry (I couldn't taste the strawberry in it) but the winner was definitely the pistachio flavor. It is so creamy! I also like how they separate the vegan flavors to make it easier to choose too.

Cons: No vegan cakes and pastries

Perfect spot for vegan ice cream 🥰

Absolute hidden gem, not far from the waterfront. So many vegan flavours and great service, I went for the vegan pistachio and vanilla, both were delicious

Pros: So many different flavours, Affordable , Close to the water

Ice cream to die for!

Pistacho ice cream is soooo good! I love it! All the other flavours are worth a try as well. We visited this place always when we were nearby.

We loved the soy-hazelnut gelato. So excited to find a vegan ice cream that wasn’t sorbet 🙂

Sottozero Gelato Factory

Best vegan gelato I've had and my non-vegan mum and auntie said they loved it and said you couldn't tell the difference they tasted so good (I tried the hazelnut, cookies and cream and also the dark chocolate orange) . There are so many different flavours to choose from so you're spoilt for choice🙌🏼 They also offer really nice sorbets too. Defo recommend if you're in the bugibba area!!!

Plenty of vegan options, including cones

Many places offer a few vegan flavors, but SottoZero had about a dozen, plus the option of vegan and GF cones.

Sooooo good!

When I went on holiday to Malta last year, I discovered this wonderful place thanks to HappyCow and a friendly local helping direct me. There are so many dairy free ice cream options and even gluten free cones! The staff are lovely too! I visited quite a few times and may have eaten more ice cream than a person should in one sitting! Looking forward to coming back in July, I'll be in every day that week!

Pros: Friendly staff, Delicious ice cream, Gluten free cones

love it!

This shop has many kinds of vegan icecream, also made with rice- and soymilk so not just sorbet. Went there a couple of times while we were in Malta and it was all sooo good! Standard cones arent vegan but they have vegan ones for €1 extra or you could just get it without a cone.

Pros: many vegan options , huuuge portions
