Having read several of the promising reviews we decided to visit this restaurant. We went early as we had not reserved a table. The service was efficient and the food excellent. It obviously has a good reputation as it was full when we left. A welcoming and vibrant atmosphere. Would certainly visit again.

On a hot summer evening a table under the trees in the piazza was the perfect place to be. We were glad we booked as the tables filled up quickly and many of the other customers were clearly regulars. The service was friendly and the entire meal was great value for money. My mouth still waters when I think of... More

The San Gavino has all what I expect from an Italian restaurant! Flair with a nice and very friendly service, good seat opportunities inside and outside, a menu with fish, non fish and Pizza (!) and all this in a very nice surrounding. The traditional Italian 'coperto' - in this case it was a pleasure to pay because you get... More

Had fresh pasta with seafood, crab ravioli, baked fish with tomatoes and potatoes, local wine, mirto. Everything was high quality, from service to food. By the way,I am Italian and I lived before in Sardinia; therefore, I am not a casual tourist. I recommend this restaurant with knowledge.

We had a great dinner and great service from the owner, who organised a great tapas to start appr. 8 different small dishes and they were all magnificent. Then we had a fresh fish baked in owen. Delisious. Bravo! Keep it up....

The best food, generous portions and excellent service. Not cheap but affordable, seafood is superb but if you chose to have a simple pizza you won't regret. Do not miss visiting the famous romanic cathedral and its crypt.

San Gavino is a real gem you don´t expect in a dock town like Porto Torres. Unless a local friend tells you about it, you probably never find it as you wouldn´t necessarily even go to Porto Torres while you're in Sardinia. Unless you arrive by the ferry boat. But even then you most likely just arrive and move on... More
