I have been coming to this place since I was a kid. It is an institution in Cagliari. Housed in a beautiful historic building in the shopping and historic district of the city, the Antico cafe transforms itself from typical elegant Italian cafe during the day to aperitivo destination and restaurant at night. It is a great place to watch... More

we entered when we needed a drink and the barman kindly did a coffee and lemonade, told us to sit and relax (I think!). When we came to pay he refused! We threw a 10 euro note at him and he tried to pass back but we ran out before he could return it. The place was filled with locals... More

This beautiful small place is small trip back in time. When you sit here you can well imagine how it must of felt like many years ago. Although appearing to be a location for upper class enthusiasts the cafe is timeless and classic in style. Menu offers a vast variety of Italian delights, we tried a selection of coffee and... More

I can understand the numerous negative reviews of this place but take it for what it is, it's ideally situated beneath the Bastione Di Saint Remy stairs and therefore clearly very popular with tourists. Food is average and overpriced and service is far too slow but a nice decor, beautiful interior, free wifi and a cool air con makes a... More

On arrival in Caglari I visited this cafe as it was around the corner from my hotel. No one came to take my order ignored me and kept cleaning tables. I asked for a menu and then still no one came to take my order then the waiter started to change my tablecloth and still never asked for my order.... More

The B & B where we were staying used this cafe for breakfast, so we got to eat there every day. But I might well have gone there anyway. Friendly staff, good service, and nice food....and a passable attempt at Americano coffee, which can be hard to get in Sardinia. We also went there for one evening meal, and that... More

In the morning before setting off to see the wonderful sites of this amazing city, drop in for a cup of coffee and a brioche, or for lunch after shopping in the Via Manno for jewellery of shoes and bags. Or in the evening for a quick drink before eating or finally for a night cap, where people of all... More

This place was recommended by our B&B Hostess, so we decided to stop by for coffee. Great atmosphere when you aren't in a hurry and want to sit back and relax!

Cafe Antico dates back to 1855, it is a listed building and is full of charm, with plenty of character and plays chilled music. It is nicely located in the centre of Cagliari opposite Bastion St Remy. It serves excellent pasta, great coffee and a wide variety of croissants.
