Antica Cagliari looked like most of the restaurants in the Marina area, but we were pleasantly surprised. Here we had several firsts on our visit to Sardinia - our first Sardinian wine (Vermentino), our first bottarga dish (dried fish roe, a specialty on Sardinia), our first taste of the amazingly fresh fish of the island, our first Sardinian flat bread...

Visited for lunch with a vegetarian friend - restaurants in Cagliari, and especially in Via Sardegna are renowned for seafood, and it is sometimes difficult to find good vegetarian options. As a starter we ordered mussels and grilled vegetables (this shows as side dish in the menu), both excellent. As main we got lobster linguine, which was absolutely a-m-a-z-i-n-g. There's... More

We waited 45 minutes for a country salad and some fried calamaris! They had forgotten our order and not only that when it came it was so ordinary. My salad was some shredded lettuce a pile of corn on the cob out of a tin and a few bits of grilled vegetables with no dressing! My husbands was over fried... More

Then we had " Culurgionis" a filled pasta like ravioli but stuffed with potato and Pecorino Sardo cheese, really, really good. Also had the " Fregola crostacei" local pasta in shape of... More

Lots of choice on the menu but the fish was particularly good, especially the sea bream. Everything we had was great, though. Service was friendly. The restaurant doesn't open until 7.30 and it's probably a good idea to get there soon after this if you don't have a reservation. Outdoor seating on the narrow streets is atmospheric and means you... More

Absolutely great food. The first time we went there was with some friends from Cagliari. It was so good that me and boyfriend came back again to finish off our holiday at Antica Cagliari. Every course we had was excellent and the restaurant was packed even in the middle of the week. The antipasto degustazioni was fantastic (and it changes... More

We came to this restaurant on a busy night and did not have a reservation, however the restaurant had one table left for the whole night otherwise they were all booked up. We were lucky enough to get a great table for two and enjoy an amazing dinner. My boyfriend and I had 3 courses as well as wine and... More

This is one of my favourite eating places in Cagliari. The restaurant is in one of the most touristic area of the city, near the port and not far from the old town: it’s very lively and perfect to have a walk after dinner. Obviously, a lot of the restaurants are typical tourists’ traps, but not this one. The restaurant... More

We randomly stopped and sat down, tired of touristic restaurants and inspired. Great surprise, they spoke English very well and made us their recommendations. We had a delicious dinner, perfectly cooked food, very efficient staff. Very good value for money, highly recommended.
