Definitely the best restaurant experience we had during our 5 day stay in Cagliari. The service was outstanding, very charming and helpful, and the food even better! We gave the owners 'carte blanche' and what a delicious seafood we got in return! The portions are very generous. Recommended to make a reservation up front.

De arrived too late (23:00) and we could not order any food from the menu. The chef prepared courses out of the menu that were deliciuous; sapguetti a la cigala and ravioli a la mare. The antipasti ("trisu") was also deliciuous. The bad points are that it is a small place, it was very noisy because a table of six... More

Just brilliant. Not a Michelin star, of course, but very close. The plus side of this is that dishes are actually large and filling! ( We were full after a course of appetisers (delicious) and waitress offered us herself to cancel the main dish). And what an atmosphere right from the entrance (we ended up having a famous football player... More

I have been there several times. The staff is very kind and polite. The food is delicious. All very very high quality. Try the starters with sea food, a mixed of raw and cooked sea food..something wonderful...dessert are unique..and the wine selection is important. I would definitely go back to this amazing restaurant. Perfect value for money!

One of the best dinners I have every had. We had a selection of starters, all on fish basis. The portions were for three (we were six) but it was more than abundant. They brought as around 12 different tasters. They were sublime. As a main course I had chosen pasta with sea urchin and wild asparagus, which was very... More

Excellent value, service was great and food exceptional. Recommend the seafood mix antipasti. Probably should book as seats about 20.
