A great place to have an apperitivo or lunch. It is not the cheapest point in the city, but you get what you pay for.

High level service, very good wines and cocktails, man at the piano contributed to make my time special while enjoying a book on my own in this nice terrace in the heart of... More

The outside seating was private and warm to the chilly evening. The pasta was exceptional, fresh made with a very delicate light red sauce, the staff attentive and the piano player quite talented. All in all a very pleasant soothing relaxed evening with good food and beautifully designed outdoor and indoor space. Try it you will like it.

Throughout all our visits we found the staff to be very attentive, polite, and spoke both Italian and English. There is a wide ranging selection of drinks, including cocktails and a good selection of scotch whisky.... More

The giant fans dispensing cool air and a fine, discrete drizzle were a welcome contraption on this late evening. The roses outside were... More

If you are exploring the Castillo and Historic areas of Cagliari this a brilliant refreshment stop. Excellent shaded and breezy outside seating as well as cool air conditioned interior, spotless with elegant toilet facilities. An extensive and reasonably priced menu, well worth a visit
