very tasty !

We have ordered fish and meat menu for eur 18. Fish menu included spaghetti with clams and calamaris - very recommended. Meat menu included spaghetti and piece of grilled and dry meet. We also ordered tuna carpaccio which was delicious ! Over all very good experience. Down side: a bit slow service.

The restaurant Also harbours a pizzeria which is a bit odd. Either you are a restaurant or a pizzeria. The fish was fresh but when we asked for nice roasted traditional potatoes we were told that only French fries could accompany our fish. We therefore did not have potatoes, not wanting to have frozen French fries. It was on a... More

A local friend recommended us visiting this restaurant for their delicious pizza and he was completely right! Great price/value ratio and very attentive staff. Their vino della casa was delicious!

We showed up before they opened (7:15 p.m.) and get sent away rather rudely ("Not open! Come later!). We come back 30 minutes later and all of the sudden they have no room for us. Then why the hell did we wait for half an hour? Ridiculous waste of our time. No apology, no nothing. So if you go, 1)... More

Excellent & varied menu with great choice of freshly caught fish - cooked as you wish. Extremely pleasant, helpful & knowledgable staff. Always willing to talk you through possible choices. Very popular with both locals & tourists. Always seemed to be full both lunchtime & dinner so advisable to book. Not in the best looking location - but definitely well... More

We stumbled across this restaurant; which turned out to be a real gem. It was pretty late in the evening when we arrived in Alghero and everywhere seemed really busy. This restaurant is set back from the main seafront, which may be why we got lucky. We only had to wait a couple of minutes whilst our table was prepared.... More

Slightly off the beaten track, but the locals beat a path to its door lunchtimes and evenings. Absolutely essential to book or you simply will not get in. There is a covered terrace but we prefer to be inside where we can fully appreciate the great food and the general fun and bustle. Go if you can get in and... More

Just outside northern end of the old town walls over the road by the gardens we arrived on spec as it was opening and got a table - lucky as it soon filled to capacity with - you've guessed - locals. The food was well presented tasty and the ambience excellent. There is an extensive wine list (some very pricey)... More

We ate here twice and enjoyed both meals, The food is good and the local wines are lovely and good value. The staff are friendly but don't intrude so we had very relaxed meals, Its worth booking in advance as we saw numerous people turned away both nights Restaurant is closed on Wednesdays.
