Good lunch

Dined here for lunch, and one of only three tables being served on a quiet December day. Service was friendly, and wine selection good. The local white (Torbato) paired well with our selections. A fried mixed seafood selected by the spouse was enjoyed by her, and included fish, calamari, and... read more

We lunched at Il Mare during a road trip through Sardinia. We ordered the mixed variety of appetizers; a mix of absolutely fresh seafood cooked divinely. The main course of seafood pasta was probably the best I have ever eaten. Service was also impeccable and timeous. If you are in this corner of Sardinia, a stop at this gem of... More

Very nice restaurant, and although it´s next to a small street, it´s not loud there (we visited on a friday night, past 10 pm). No english menu, and the waitress didn´t speak english either, so be prepared to have your best italian brushed up ;-) The 5 appetizers were great - and enough for 2, 5 plates for 12 Euros!... More

Came here for lunch in first week of July as it was just around the corner from our Bnb. Ordered Risotto Pescatore and Bavette Fantasia (shrimp & octopus). The risotto took longer to prepare and the owner came to advise us in advance. Both dishes were great and very tasty. Recommended!

The whole meal was exquisite but what still sticks in my memory 3 months later was the wonderful selction of starters (antipasti). I didn't know which one to choose so the very helpful waitress suggested that I opt for the selection of 5 small starters. Well, they were anything but small portions and I was a little concerned that I... More

I was born and grew up in Sardinia so I know my seafood, and this is the best I have ever had. I had the muscles for antipasto followed by pasta with cockles/baby clams and the tuna steak. The flavours were just exploding through. I was in heaven :) This place does not serve regular meat of pasta dishes with... More

As other reviewers already mentioned, food is great and the fish is extremely fresh. Apart from that, we received an excellent service: We were in Porto Torres during the carnaval, it was very busy, and a lot of restaurants were full. This one was too, but the waitress saw that we were very hungry (and a little desperate, it was... More

My friend and I had a wonderful vegetarian dinner at Il Mare's. The service was outstanding and the food was the best Italian I have had in a very long time. I really enjoyed every part of the meal and would highly recommend Il Mare's to anyone who is looking for truly outstanding Italian vegetarian food.
