The restaurant located across the street from the Alghero Bus Station clearly caters to locals. Tourists are given second class treatment or - as we experienced - are simply ignored. We had some ordinary pasta to begin with, followed by fried quid and grilled octapussy. None of the seafood was fresh. It had been frozen and was not tender, as... More

We were recommended this place by a local, and it was excellent. I had the Frutti di Mare pizza (Fruits of the sea), and it was a superbly prepared thin-base pizza with fresh clams, mussels, shrimps, and octopus. Loved it. Good wine, slightly impatient staff, fair price. If you are looking for good seafood, this is definitely the place, though... More

They left us standing with no answers no dinner n no... More

We came for a quick meal and were not disappointed. The antipasto was beautiful and fresh comprising of a few seafoods, our pizzas were huge and probably one could be shared between two unless you are starving. They were delicious and we drank a local white white. Very impressive.

In this simple restaurant you will be able to taste a good variety of seafood, prepared in a simple but tasty way. On the menu also some meat options, for those who do not fancy seafood. The reastaurant is quite popular, so it is better to have a reservation.

Sadly, not what we expected or were looking forward to as frequent eaters of freshly caught fish. The whole fish looked & smelled fresh on presentation but the grilling was poor as was that of the squid . No flavour or freshness as you would expect of what we saw & chose. Both fillets differed in size & we could... More

Local's restaurant offering fabulous pasta, pizza and fish! We had a lovely table outside for dinner (a little hot as it was enclosed). The meal began with reasonably priced wine and an extensive menu. The waiter recommended the macaroni with prawns and aubergine which was to die for! The only issue was it took over 40 minutes between ordering our... More

Il Pesce d'oro is a very popular place, also with locals, offering the standard Sardinian dishes and pizza. You chose yourself the fish you want to eat. The Vongole was delicious as well as the grilled fish. Pizzas ok. The restaurant itself is very basic. Food quality prevails over decoration.
