We followed tripadvisor's reviews and we were not disappointed at all. We reserved a table and we were lucky after some smiles and nice words to get it in the garden. The manager and the waitress were both charming and extremely welcoming. They went the extra mile on every single request that we had. Service is of high standard in... More

This is one of the best, maybe the best resataurant in Porto Torres. Very friendly staff and great meals. The restaurant also has a fantastic pizzeria section. Booking is recommended.

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.
