We had "Menu #3" and we couldn't believe the quantity and quality of the food we were getting for 30 euros, and 5 stars service! Absolutely fabulous!

This place should be #1 in all of Cagliari. We rode our bikes to the restaurant and Monica was kind enough to let us put them inside, as she had a feeling they were burglar bait locked up outside. (these rental bikes were a little too fancy for Cagliari). We were served like 10 appetizers that melt your heart! So... More

I had a wonderful experience in this establishment. We were treated very well and the hostess was really kind and competent. The seafood was really fresh and well prepared. Overall, a great dining experience in a relaxed and casual environment. The people here look like they are really passionate bout what they do.

If you want to eat fresh fish, this is the place to go to but be prepared to choose either a starter or a main course after the abundant antipasti because you won't be able to go thru all 3 unless you haven't eaten in weeks! A nice selection of wines and Monica is an exceptional host always making sure... More

We followed the majority of the reviews and decided to give it a try. Instead of asking the antipasti (we were 3) we went for a antipasti and 3 secondo piatti. The problem started here. The waitress says we need to choose the same for the 3 of us. We clearly understood the restaurant is too used to this antipasti... More

I don't even think it's worth wasting time describing how horrible my experience in this restaurant was... Atmosphere: looks like a fast food-office canteen, no elegance, no charm, shows no taste at all (went because was recommended here) Food: simply the worst meal I have ever had in Italy. Antipasti were like _UFOS (unidentified, floating objects) floating in cheap oil... More

Our experience at Monica & Ahmed was GREAT! The best seafood restaurant at the best price! Our meal was composed of 10 antipasti, pasta ai frutti di mare, a whole fish!, some wine, dessert and coffee. The quality was excellent, everything sooooo fresh! It's been almost 2 months since our return in Canada, but my boyfriend still talks about it!... More
