Me and my boyfriend went to this restaurant because our friend which lives in Alghero highly recommended to us. She said that is the best restaurant in town and you will never find such a food anywhere else. Of course that I will never find such a restaurant because all their dishes were like an experimental food. They were trying... More

We stumbled upon this little gem by accident, after walking out of a tourist trap nearby. The place was packed, but we were told a table would become available soon. While we waited outside the staff brought us two glasses of wine and a plate of delicious antipasti, both on the house! After only waiting ten minutes our table was... More

We went here for lunch. I'm vegetarian and tried the bruchetta with tomatos, olives and capers. Not a favourite! The bread was very heavy, and it just didn't taste good together. My boyfriend is not vegetarian and had a pasta with tomatosauce, it looked strange but the taste was good. Maybe I was unlucky, it looked like most people were... More

We visited this restaurant because it's recommended by the Lonely planet of Sardegna. I really like it if restaurants base their menu on local food, especially with fresh caught fish food. I ordered the plate of the chef, based on the catch of the day. It was a very nice tagliatelle with clams, bottarga and mussels. Unfortunately, some of the... More

Very nice restaurant with a friendly staff. It's necessary to make a reservation during this period of the year. Ask to sit outside on the terrass. What's good of this restaurant? Well everything is fresh and local: we recommend to start with tuna or swordfish carpaccio or the degustation of Sardinian meat and cheese, so delicate and fresh. We've been... More

Located in the heart of old center Alghero. You must take a reservation. Great terrace, very nice staff, lovely place to relax and eat. The offer authentic local dishes. The best see food and home made pasta. And desert tiramisu - you must try it - the best one I ever had! Highly recommended!

Lovely welcoming and quirky restaurant in the back streets. Famed for its pizza (which I found to be just OK), you order these for two people, but you can have different pizza toppings on each side. To me their pasta and steak are the real stars of the show. Staff is welcoming, friendly and helpful.The night we arrived, we were... More

The food is very local and excellent. Service is good. The boss is very friendly and welcome clients. The terrace is romantic and you do enjoy the old Alghero while you are eating.

We ate lunch here and if we had been around for longer, we would have liked to come back for dinner. This was a lovely restaurant located in a barrel vaulted space with simple furnishings and marble topped tables. We ordered a simple lunch for us and our two small boys. They had pasta and we had pizza. Both very... More

Me and my boyfriend entered the restaurant with high expectations as the menu looked very promising. After we ordered our food, we were told after a while that neither of our orders were available. We were really looking forward to a fillet with sauce (ordered one with red wine, and one with green pepper), but even though we accepted to... More
