A nice, autentic spot!

We were there for lunch at our visit in Cagliari. It is a really nice spot, authentic and not too pricy. We had a nice white wine and the food also really good and fresh. The seppie alla grilglia was a dream. All in all we can really recommend this nice little restaurant. Important: This restaurant... read more

Pasta dishes (ravioli and spaghetti aglio e olio) were excellent. A fish dish (Amberjack) was strongly recommended which was good but not exceptional. Service seemed a bit cold and rushed at first and then slow once we decided we wanted settle-up and leave. Prices were on the high-side for what we thought we received in value.

Went here in mid October, on the recommendation of a shopkeeper. We were so glad we did. It was a beautiful day, so we decided to sit outside. Waiter was very attentive. Between the 3 of us we had combined dishes of Caprese salad, ravioli, octopus salad, grilled fish, grilled veggies, wine and seadas(a Sardinian speciality) Everything was wonderful. For... More

Lovely restaurant, fab food and a great atmosphere. It was so good we went twice during our five night visit. We highly recommend this Italian restaurant and it's very good value for money

I think that this place could use a bit more flexibility in their approach, they seemed very formal but in an old-fashioned way. As soon as they suspect that you do not want to drop the bank on the visit, the service was very swift and cold, even though we might have stayed for more if the visit had been... More

Excellent service (Anderson one of many), great seafood (many fish of the day choices, Grouper, Red Mullet & more), good location with outdoor seating a must for us. Book ahead or 'miss out' on a really great restaurant!!!

Knew it had to be out there, but after eating for six nights in restaurants recommended by Michelin and Tripadvisor, eventually found the one! Great service, beautiful food presented stylishly and at a cost that is more than reasonable. Booked again without hesitation, recommend you give it a try.

The food and service were both exemplary. We sat outside enjoyed the people watching while having great food. The staff were courteous and despite the language barrier worked with us to explain the desserts with good humor.

We visited Antica Cagliari on the recommendation of our hotel and we were immediately impressed as we entered the dining room which resembled an underground cavern. The food was really good as we enjoyed a variety of fish dishes for starters and mains followed by a really lovely Tiramasu. The level of service was just right and we enjoyed the... More

On a warm evening, sitting out in the pedestrian street is great, and inside is great too is a sudden storm breaks out. We set here three evening in a row, which can only mean we liked it. Two were in a large group where service was fast and efficient and a vast and enjoyable meal was consumed. Best was... More
