A good little trattoria

This is a very popular little trattoria, both with the locals and tourists. We hadn't booked so got there well before 8 pm. We found fellow lodgers from our B&B amongst those anticipating the opening of the door. As a first course I chose bottarga, which was served thinly sliced on a bed of tender... read more

This was the last place I ate after two and half months eating fantastically well in most of Italy. Unfortunately, it was just not very good. The bread was old, the oil below par, the ravioli average at best, the chicory leaves watery and flavourless. I left feeling like I should have trusted my instincts which were not to enter... More

Our waiter was patient and friendly... A plus since we have no Italian. Pasta was served with artichoke and batarga.The pasta was clearly home-made. Picatta limone was mild and tender. The dishes were tasty, if uninspired. Prices are fair.

We came back for our second evening as we enjoyed it so much the first time! We got on very well with the owner and really enjoyed his sense of humour - he was quite a joker! The food was lovely as was the house wine.

We enjoyed the homemade pasta very much, with mussels and with salmon. Very well done, familiar atmosphere.

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.
