Tasty food

I'm rather surprised by the previous reviews. I went on the recommendation of a local and enjoyed both the service and the food. As an entre I had the smoked fish which was served on a bed of flat bread with oil and cherry tomatoes and was heavenly. And had the best spaghetti al ragu that I'm had... read more

We have eaten at different places during our trip to sardinia and this was the worst overall experience. We only went here because we couldn't get into our chosen restaurant. Also we had not read the previous reviews on TA as if so we would not have chosen here. The service was so bad and slow that we were going... More

I rarely write restaurant reviews because I am generally a happy person and enjoy my food. However, the food experience at this restaurant was sub-par and completely ruined my last night in Alghero. I have never had a worse pasta in my life and I have travelled quite a lot around Italy. In fact, you can get a better quality... More

Very disappointed about the food, and they charged 5€ for an extra mozzarella(!). In general too expensive. There are many better places than this in Alghero so there is no need to go here.

Our guide book had recommended this restaurant for it's seafood and fish. Although our starters were excellent, we had the blandest paella known to man and they charged us €4 for a few slices of tomato for our 4 year old child!

Perfectly nice nice in perfectly nice restaurant but certainly nothing exceptional or memorable. Staff seemed stretched and the little square isn't particularly beautiful. It was the only recommendation we took from the hotel.

We found the portion sizes to be very small and the lasagne was barely tepid and congealed. We ordered some chips too which were 4 euros for a small saucer of approx 8-10 chips. Overall poor value for money we felt and one of the higher cover charges to start with at 3 euros per person. In fairness to the... More

We spent 14 days in Sardinia and had 15-20€ menus several times. Borgo Antico had a 18€ menu which was a terrible disappointment. Antipasti consisted of 5 slices of Sardi sausage plus the same amount of cheese pieces. The main dish was farfale (pasta) with one slice of sausage cut in 10 pieces, some spices and maybe one cut up... More
