My girlfriend and I went to Paco on recommendation from our host in Alghero and we were not disappointed. We were relaxing in Sardinia after 2 weeks traveling around Italy and had enjoyed some wonderful food and wine but the Carbonara (Sardinian style with sausage) was the best meal I had in Italy... read more

Great food great service. Visited three times during our week stay. The mussels in tomato sauce are wonderful. We tried the specials and all were good. We didn't book and managed to get in each time without a wait.

We had seen the reviews on Tripadvisor before we arrived so had looked out for Paco. Food was great, prices reasonable, service good and the owner was very friendly and helpful. We ate here twice as it was a cut above the other places we had tried where mostly we were made to feel awkward by staff who seemed to... More

We went there quite late in the evening and maybe didn't catch them at their best hour? The food was average at best, we had much tastier food at other places in Alghero. Service was ok. Restaurant has nice attention to details in their interior design, and seemed to be a place for cigarr lovers to buy and enjoy during... More

Tucked away in a corner of the old town, it has a nice ambience outside and you get a personal service from the owner/manager. The food is well cooked and good value. We thought the starters were tasty but a little too large (should have shared the goats cheese) the mains are quite rich. Its worth trying.

This was the second year we ate in Paco. Not only did the owner remember us from the previous year but he also remembered where we sat and what we ate! It is a fabulous restaurant and food is fantastic! We hope to be back next year!

Paco- so Nice and calm and full of charm in the corner of plaza close to the walls of the old town. The staff give you all the attention you want- friendly and good guidance. We had todays special, lamb chops - by far the best dish I've had in the whole week. Thumbs up, Paco!

Went because of reading reviews on here and it did not disappoint. Service was really lovely and friendly. Great location on the square and lovely seating outside. We had delicious seafood pasta- best we'd had in Alghero. Reasonably priced, would definitely go back, yum!

We went to Paco on the recommendation of a friend. She wasn't wrong as we enjoyed top food and lovely wine at a reasonable price. We were greeted with a glass of prosecco as there were a few people waiting and we were politely informed they may take a couple of minutes, no problem. We had the mixed grilled fish... More
