Wonderful restaurant.

We lucked into this restaurant on our first night in Alghero after a stressful trip from Rome. It was perfect. Brilliant food for unbelievable prices. You literally could not find something like this in Rome, even if you were paying double. We went twice it was so good and waited an hour the second... read more

I come here every time I visit. Best gnocchetti sardi I have ever eaten. Consistent great service. Prices are honest, for they give you nice servings. Pizzas are giant but most of all tasty! Consider a reservation, as finding a casual free table in the summer months is nearly impossible.

All I can say is that when staying in the old town of Alghero, where virtually every street has somewhere to eat of a very high standard - it is the only place we eat more than once. I will not go into particular dishes as everything I sampled was exceptional. The food was inexpensive and the staff efficient and... More

This is a nice and cold! :) restaurant in a small street near the cathedral in Alghero. The food is of course Italian cuisine but the very best of it. Nice selection and top quality. The hose "Al Vecchio" spaghetti is just remarkable. Also to mention the hospitality. All the staff is very kind and helpful. Despite the fact we... More

We have been visiting Alghero for 13 years and since our first trip, this place has been a firm favourite, with 3 or 4 visits being essential on each holiday. Simple, typical Sardinian food and wonderful pizze at great prices. The main reason we continue to visit time after time though, is the warmth of the welcome. Is is more... More

Although it is hard to find, it is worth looking for. It is very economic, the staff is very courteous and quick and the food is outstanding. Spaghetti Vecchio Mulino is to die for!

The pizza was great with a crust never tasted before! The prosciutto with melon was fantastic! Great place to get out of the hot sun for a while.

Went for first time to this place, and I know most of the restaurants in Alghero as have been coming here for over 10 years. Nice food but some dishes you must pre-order so the menu may not reflect what you can have if you just arrive ad-hoc. We were lucky to get a table for 2 at 7.30, but... More

This restaurant is a little bit off the usual tourist path and that works in its favor. We enjoyed excellent Pizzas with great service. Thumbs up and a total recommendation.
