Recommendable!

The view definitely is lively and the service is good. They don't have many white wines, we choose the house white, and it was served too warm. We had the house anti pasti for starters, and it was a great dish, suitable to share. Then we shared a pasta with tomato and basil, which were rather... read more

Hidden in the center of Quartu, this is the place to go for good food and service. The host was welcoming and arrange dinner for us on a busy friday night even without a reservation that I suggest. You need to trust the hosts but it will be worth it. Entrees were fabulous and the rest typical menu was the... More

We had dinner here whilst on our honeymoon. Our b&b recommended this restaurant and made a reservation for us. Apparently they told the restaurant to surprise us, because we didn't even look at the menu while the waiter was already filling our table with the Sardignian antipasti. This was amazing! 5 plates with meats, cheeses and hot and cold salads... More

We found this restaurant looking for another restaurant and decided to give a shot. We were smart enough to share the set menu for 30 euros that also included the wine. The antipasti course included traditional Sardinia cured meats and cheeses, accompanied with delicious salads, after that pasta dishes and goat and wild boar stew, as a main course we... More

We went to the Cagliari branch of this restaurant and ordered 2 plates of pasta with water and 1 glass of wine, as my wife is pregnant. We were charged the menu price of €24 although we didn't take coffee or anything other. When I questioned it, I was told that's that still cheaper than the menu. Anyway, for what... More

This place was recommended to us as a restaurant serving typical Sardinian dishes. It is quite an experience, the dishes are delicious and yes, you will leave it full and happy if you have ~30 euros to spare.

Great food at a bargain! The menu includes everything you could wish for and makes it easy to try out new things like donkey meat (if you are foreign like us). The waiter was very attentive, there was life music and pretty much every guest was Italian, so you eat where the locals like to go themselves! Consider my advice... More

I was like more than 5 years without going to this place and I can say that hasn't been changed at all. Food as fresh as good ,we were served an infinitive number of dishes driking wine as much as we could for £30 per head, that was good value for money overall. After dinner we could barely move ourselves.

Used to be a great place where you could eat typical Sardinian food at a great price and great quality. Over the years I've noticed a gradual decline.
