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

This is one not to miss! Thin bases pizza with lovely toppings. The pizza are huge. You have two topping - to share. WE had the cured meat starter between us and it was enough for a meal with the basked of bread. Limited selection of wine. We had the house red which was very good. The place is quite... More

We wandered in without a reservation, early in the evening and were shown to the upstairs terrace consisting of 8 no tables for 2. Good start, ordered water, beer and wine and main courses. Looked at pizzas for 2 but was not clear that different halves could be had. Herself ordered gnocchetti with sausage and tomato sauce, I had ordered... More

We came across this place by chance (didn't read any reviews before) and we liked the idea of their giant pizza for two. The only negative point of the experience was that we had the last table which was a bit tight and not the best of view for my husband, but it was worth it. The food was excellent.... More

This restaurant was recommended by the host at the apartment we rented. It has the Slow Food philosophy and they use ingredients that are sourced locally. We had lunch here one day & dinner the next. We were seated on a sunny upstairs terrace. The pizza we had for lunch was terrific, as was the sea bream and veggies we... More

We had a lovely meal here with really friendly and efficient service. There was more choice for vegetarians than in some other restaurants in Alghero and everything was fresh and well put together. It was also good value and we were offered a free coffee and digestivo at the end.

This is a lovely place to relax and enjoy local cuisine and wine in Alghero. The restaurant has been tastefully decorated, exposing the building's original brick walls and arches, and staff are friendly and attentive, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere which feels authentic and not at all touristy. The owners care about their food and where it comes from... More

We went to La Botteghina to sample some local Sardinian ingredients. The food was very nice - we shared a plate of local meat, sausage and cheese to start, had a pasta dish with sausage and tomatoes and shared a crema catalan for dessert. All was delicious. They have some nice local wines at a good price as well. The... More
