Far better than it looks!

A nice place where to enjoy the Sardinian cousine. This restaurant offers you a tasty dinner of seafood in a quiet location (rare quality in Villasimius) and for a very decent price. The staff is very kind. Recommended.

A marvelous example of local cuisine. It offers traditional Sardinian dishes, with a strong emphasis on marine products, but pizza and sweets are also present. As far as I can tell, nice and fresh ingredients are used, the result being delicious. The stuff is very friendly, the atmosphere relaxing.

We had a great lunch at this place. It was siesta, we were very hungry, there were no other staff except the owner, he served us and he cooked the food too. The food was delicious, the service was great!

Unfortunately this restaurant is off of the main street and the night we went we were the only ones there. The food and service was good. Deserves more customers.

Arrived late afternoon into town... They warned me pizza would take time but I wasn't in a rush. I had the caprese pizza and it was quite tasty. A little liquidy on top probably from the tomatoes.
