Very delightful

Great little restaurant with a few tables and excellent food. Price was good and mix of dishes and wine was perfect. The host/owner was very helpful and we took the chefs recommended menu and was really nice. would definitely go back when back in Alghero.

Excellent food and nice staff. Small restaurant but very friendly and warm. You have to like fish to come here.

I really wanted to love this place - it looks the part, great reviews but I was just disappointed. We had the lobster tasting menu. The starter 5 'tastes' of fish: 1 was great, 1 awful (tasting of those lemon hand towelettes to me) & the others bland but ok. The steamed skate with pasta didn't work for me, fish... More

Dear Sirs, We kindly respect your opionion... Anyway, an opinion is an opinion... As for the lobster, for instance, we really do not understand what you mean... Expecially this part... ''lots of white cooking protein on show and (worryingly for a Mediterranean lobster) was served with claw meat''... Not because we do not understand your words... Words are clear... On... More

Went here for dinner expecting something special, given the restaurant has a Michelin star and was even mentioned in our DK Eyewitness guidebook. The experience started pleasantly enough with the chef/owner coming out for a chat, making some recommendations and taking the order. The recommendations felt a bit overly insistent though and he was pressuring us to order more than... More

Dear Sirs, We respect your opinion but we think you are ''a bit'' exaggerating things... Firs of all, you spoke a good Italian and during the order you asked for ''Cozze'', using the Italian word for mussels... As you can easily check on our web-site, page ''Menu'', Pasta with mussels doesn't exist... The correct voice is ''Trenette per il dio... More

This small, charming restaurant in an old house (steep steps) serves excellent seafood and meat dishes, with some vegetarian options. The very hospitable proprietor chef keeps a close eye on everything, sign of a well-run restaurant. Cozy, intimate, delicious.

Nice intimate restaurant. Good service. Nice wine. Quite expensive for what we got. Nothing at all wrong with the food we were given but it didn't match up to the pics on the website. We both had different degustazione menus. Nice but not as nice as we hoped.

My husband and I, along with 2 frIends went to this restaurant for a birthday lunch today. Our treat. Outside the restaurant is a board advertising a 25 Euro lunchtime special.

Took some friends for a birthday lunch treat after viewing their lunchtime set menu for €25. Nice little restaurant but things went downhill from there as the beautifully attired Maître De waived us to a table for four and went off. My friend went to get a chair to sit on! Return of the MD and handed the full menu... More
