I have been there with my girlfriend for dinner and we have liked very much. The place is very well situated and the ambient is quite nice. The food and the wine were well recommended by the chef and by the employees. Nice place in Cagliari!

An interesting menu with good value set lunch. All our dishes were of finest quality, fresh and well cooked. Excellent wine recommendation. Inventive desserts (beer tiramisu?). Very quick service- rarity in Sardegna ;-)

I wouldn't suggest the place. The ambient is quite nice, but the food doesn't match with the prices. Is a very renowned restaurant, but definitely overpriced.

We were recommended this restaurant from a friend (thanks Francesco) and it blew our minds away. The octopus starter was one of the best that we ever tasted. The pasta dishes with traditional Sardinian pasta were excellent both in terms of quality and quantity. The dessert (birramissu) was heavenly made. But the star of the night was the white wine...

Upon arrival in Cagliari I bought a magazine on Sardegna, Luigi's Pomata's restaurant was listed and when we discovered it was just around the corner from our B&B we just had to bring a visit. We went there for dinner and eventhough I don't eat fish I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious the vegetarian dishes were. My friend had... More

Horrible. Again, another Italian "foodie, high end, home made" place that's well reviewed served us the worst of the worst. We looked across the room this time to ensure we ordered correctly, and again, our food looked subpar, less fresh, literally the short end of the "meat" stick. The menu translation is bad. We ordered a 30 EU "tuna belly... More

First of all, the food was delicious: certainly among the best meals we had in our 2 weeks in Sardinia. The Tuna Belly was a discovery and an experience by itself, the tuna tartare with mozarella cream was exquisite and melted in the mouth, pumpkin raviolis with truffle were delicious, the swordfish carpaccio was excellent. Really the food was top... More

We came here for lunch, after somebody of the staff of our hotel (in Capoterra) advised us to try this out. We where a little surprised, because a few years ago we stayed in the B&B next door, and this place was a kind of trendy lounge bar.....now it was changed in a (very big) restaurant. We did not make... More

I've been to this restaurant because of a recommendation of a friend of mine. The food itself was as expected - pretty delicious. I had the tuna tatar, the tagliatelle with tuna and aubergines and the hot chocolate cake with pistachio ice. Everything tasted very good. Unfortunately, the service was very snobbish: I went there alone and obviously I was... More
