My partner and I ate here two times. Lunch and diner. Both times the service was attentive, patient and polite. We speak a little Italian but always seem to communicate.. We had pasta dishes, fish and salads. The Italians eat contorni ( salads/vegetables) after the main courses so if you order an insalada misa (mixed) it will come last. On... More

Terrible service, no help with menu,treated as third class clients, food not great. Other diners who were non Italian (but Italian speakers) were treated with the same poor, indeed rude, service. We do not think Oristano likes tourists.

This tiny fish restaurant near the Piazza Roma is very popular, so reserve ahead. We love red mullet and asked for it. It was brought to us in a most wonderful fritto misto with calamari. Nothing fancy about this restaurant - it's just all about the freshest of Sardinian seafood, wonderfully prepared.

We ate at Trattoria Gino in mid September 2014. This restaurant was number one in Lonely Planet and highly rated in Trip Advisor. That is impossible to understand. The owner or whoever served us was the rudest and most hostile person we encountered in 7 weeks of traveling in Italy. We went to the restaurant for lunch and when we... More

We spent our honeymoon in Sardinia, travelling around and by far this restaurant was the best we ate in. The restaurant is a traditional trattoria where we were only one of two tables that had tourists. The owner was very welcoming and the food was fabulous. Would definitely recommend if you like fine dining.

The food is delicious, you will be amongst Italians that have lunch here (as we did). The antipasta is very good. Gino will serve you a plate full and you will enjoy! Pastas were fantastic. Although Gino is not very cheap, the experience and the food is worth the money.

One of about 2 restaurants in Oristano open on a Monday night, late September... a nice surprise: simple, tasty food, decent wine. Tiny place with friendly service. Probably the cheapest bill of our sardinian trip. Why not!?

Went at lunchtime.Had very good buffet as first course.The restaurant is quite small & was full on our visit.We had 3 courses & we enjoyed each.Service charge is added to the bill which didnt happen at any other restaurants on our 11 day visit to Sardinia.The only problem we had was we coudn't get the bill without repeatedly asking.

A nice restaurant with good food. Good prices. Don't forget to order potatoes and mixed salata or ask what you get. We got a fish, just a fish thats all. But after a while also potatoes. The mullet were perfect.
