Off the Beaten Path but next to the path

Along the ancient walkway that leads up to Bastione di Santa Croce in Cagliari Sardinia you can espy a group of tables sitting outside Sa Piola. The sign along the main thoroughfare is enough to peak your curiosity, and from the moment you gaze at the menu you realize you are in the hands of people... read more

We ate her with four persons on a Sunday evening in September 2014. This restaurant has a nice ambiance and personal service at the table. The quality of our meals was good. You will not be disappointed if you go here.

I get what this restaurant "should be"....but because I am not Italian or a local got snubbed on the better bread, the better olive oil, my muscles and clams were smaller than what was on the locals plate, the chef/owner tended far more to his locals (ok, I get it). House wine is sweeter than I prefer. My mushroom Appetizer... More

We went to Sa Piola with a friend for Ferragosto, everything was great and delicious. Food and wines of high quality always fresh and with a unique touch. Giuseppe always smiling presence makes you very welcome to his place. Absolutely worth another visit next time we will be in Cagliari.

We tried this restaurant almost withous knowing it. Very nice atmosphere and great care from the owner. The food is specialy different in a way that it's a place where you'll find special dishes. Not usual trattoria, and the plates are worked. A bit expensive but good place for special night with couple. Good try.

We chose this restaurant as it looked attractive and was a bit out-of-the-way. The meal started off well, the starters were both very tasty. But the secondi weren't very good. The stewed agnello was full of bone, some of it splintered, and very salty and the pork dish was quite dry. Given the cost of these dishes it wasn't satisfactory... More

Went back twice since then and unfortunately I am now forced to leave a two star rating... I wanted to take some friends for a special lunch... More

After a dissapointed evening in what was supposed to be a good restaurant in Calgiari, Sa Piola was recommended to us by our b&b host. I'm pretty picky about restaurants (food and service wise) but really enjoyed eating at Sa Piola. When we arrived at 8 we were the first guests. The owner took his time to explain the menu... More
