Benevennios. We are Rita and Mario, and together with our daughter Maria Grazia and our sons Michele and Giuseppe we run our farm stay "Sa Mandra". Twenty years ago we left Fonni, our birthtown and we moved to this region, Nurra, near Alghero, taking the affection from our native place and the love for our origins with us. Our lives have been made even happier with the birth of our kids first, and the birth of our nephew Fabrizio more recently.We both belong to families from agro-pastoral communities that moved to the same area in the northern Sardinia.We took our culture from Barbagia with us, and we use it as distinctive mark to run our business: the farm stay "Sa Mandra"( mandra stands for a circular paddock that shepherds used to build in order to confine sheep for milking). We started up this activity in 1993, in a plot of one hundred hectares close to Alghero and to the "Riviera del Corallo" (the coral coast), in the Nurra region, a flat land with few plateaus, rich in naturalistic and historical sites, monuments, with areas for growing medicinal herbs, other with olive groves, and lands left for grazing.Over the last 20 years we have asserted ourselves in this field, improving and increasing the range of services we are able to offer, thanks to our qualified staff (of 10-20 people depending the season), trained in our farm within the project Programma Operativo Regionale 2000/2006.We currently offer

Charming and nice restaurant. Forget diet! First, the entrance was amazing, the garden and surrounding are perfect. Second, the staff, friendly, gentile and warm, excellence service. Finally, the food was an amazing surprise; I am not use to take very large meals, but definitely a place to enjoy.

This is a lovely place to eat if you would like to sample some authentic dishes that have been cultivated and harvested on site. Very good value for money, booking in advance advised

This is by far the best meal I ever had in a restaurant. The price is a bit high, yes, but, my God, it's worth it. I can't even remember how many courses we had, there were so many and the kept coming. Remember to have just a bit of everything or you won't be able to taste everything. I... More

A repeat visit to this agriturismo, the food itself was quite delicious, especially the porchetto. At € 40 per person, this is not cheap, but does include wine and many courses of food, all of which were either very good or excellent. The biggest challenge with this particular experience was that another table seated next to us had three couples,... More

Dear Ms Georgia Lawrenceville, I am very sorry that you have spent a so ugly evening in our restaurant. Understanding the confusion and noise that a group of children can create in a restricted environment we have tried to make your evening enjoyable moving your table in a different room. Our company welcomes every family with children but we cannot... More

If you are visiting Sardinia and you happen to be nearby Alghero this is a must go place where you can really enjoy the typical Sardnian specialties, cooked to perfection, perfectly presented in a lovely and warm atmosphere of an old Sardinian environment... The food is outstanding and the service is kind, efficient and very pleasant... Be aware that the... More

Such a great experience! This is definitely a restaurant you have to go to if you near Alghero. We were welcomed at the entrance and offered a happy hour in a very suggestive garden where you could see the porcheddu sardo been cooked. We tasted the typical local food and wine, the plates were varied and a lot, very tasty.... More

It was our worst & most expensive meal on holiday. Basic food, admittedly in a nice setting, but probably rated highly due to the free alcohol and amount of food served. However, quantity is no replacement for quality, especially as restaurants in nearby Alghero serve much better food for less money. The service is friendly but also basic, with each... More

We dined at Sa Mandra, and really enjoyed the experience. The service was excellent and the food was varied, and very tasty. We were seated outside, which I think is a nicer option than inside, though the inside option did look charming. There are a lot of courses...so come hungry! They catered for one of us who was a vegetarian,... More
