I will remember the taste of my linguine with crayfish forever - absolutely divine taste & beautifully presented on the plate. A great local white wine to accompany the meal. Followed by coffee & grappa night-cap. Heavenly!

This is an amazing fish restaurant and very popular with locals and tourists. It is very busy so booking is essential to avoid disappointment. Even if your not a fish fan there are alternatives on the menu but the fish dishes are absolutely delicious. Its not cheap but definitely value for money for the quality of the food

Very busy restaurant as stated in previous reviews. Despite booking a table we were positioned at a table literally in the path of the waiters coming from the kitchen. Too many tables and too cramped. While we got our very nice pizzas within 15 minutes which was grand, the table beside us who were seated at the same time ordered... More

Went here for dinner on recommendation, food excellent, although seafood a little expensive, but it's certainly fresh, ie choose your fish from the days catch. I had pasta which was lovely and fresh. the pizzas looked amazing. Good service, overall very good. Atmosphere not great, quite noisy, and the music unsuitable (techno) for a restaurant.

The receptionist from the hotel recommended us this restaurant. We thought there is a catch - something touristic, but we were surprised to find a cozy place, full of Italians, great pizza, pasta and a fabulous Filetto Gorgonzola. We made reservation for 5 dinners in a row and bit any other restaurant we ate in Sardinia. Do not forget to... More

It's hard to tell the best restaurant on this trip cause all of them are amazing! Sardegna is a food paradise and this is just another amazing sardinian restaurant. Full of locals enjoying the food, no tourist crap, great staff... Don't forget to reserve in advance! They use to be full in the weekends!

This lovely restaurant is always full. But they do work after 12 pm and the food was really very good. It's better when you reserve a table in advance.
