About us

The Undercroft Gourmet Restaurant & Pizzeria is located in the crypt of the Anglican church, the first place of worship during the English colonization in 1800.
The Undercroft now offers its guests the opportunity to enjoy their important family or professional gatherings within these suggestive and historic walls surrounded by arches and aisles of the nineteenth century, left untouched by time offering a truly unique experience because it contains the idea of ​​the sacred eating in a church and the profane, tasting vintage wines and high-level spirits.

The Undercroft is currently home to important events, such as book presentations, literary cafes with local writers, exhibitions of works by local artists, live classical music concerts, important meetings with archbishops and politicians, weddings, work dinners, parties of all kinds such as graduations, birthdays and anniversaries, all thanks to the size of the location that can accommodate up to 300 people, and the historical beauty that the place offers. An event celebrated here is undoubtedly a memorable event.

Wines

The particular attention to detail makes this restaurant a pearl in the heart of Malta's capital, Valletta.

The wines offered are imported exclusively for Undercroft.
Those are made by Jarno Trulli (former Benetton formula 1 driver). His Podere Castorani located in Abruzzo, nestled in the Maiella hills and the Gran Sasso d’Italia mountains guarantee a wine production of great excellence, all made with native grapes through biodynamic processes that respect the natural course of the seasons. Many of their wines are best-selling in the USA. This makes The Undercroft a gourmet restaurant in step with the world and with international tastes, where Italian tradition meets the most demanding and cosmopolitan palates.

Other wineries are Colle Mora, Umbria which offers a varied selection of wines, always organic and low-production (the bottles are numbered), and Sacco cellars from Puglia, which also offer a high range of choice of wines from whites to rosés and bubbles.

All still following the Apulian traditions, to which we at The Undercroft are very attached, being all coming from this extraordinary, as generous in terms of territorial productivity, region.
