This restaurant is supposedly a Sardinian restaurant. Supposedly because the dishes are rather "generic" Italian dishes, with a couple of exceptions. Choice is limited, and prices are frankly rather high. The food is not bad, though: if you don't have great expectations, but look for a "home" cuisine, then this restaurant fulfills the promises.

Don't expect extraordinary tralala but respect for the basic product...al dente cooked risotto, well cooked pasta with tasty sauce, dessert a bit disappointing though. Extremely sharply priced wines compared to most restaurants, large choice of Sardinian wines and other excellent italian wines. Looking for correct basic, tasteful Sardinian food, you will be happily surprised.

This is a family favorite but also quite nice for couples and business lunches. The fish baked in salt is outstanding, served with light zucchini and mashed potatoes. The cold octopus salad is a nice appetizer and the pasta dishes are also tasty.
