Food portions are large here. Food is very simply presented but prepared with perfection. Food choices are limited, unlike the extensive wine list. This is not a very comfortable restaurant in terms of furniture or table spacing, and the service is a little bit sporadic. Don't come here for a private conversation or a quick in and out meal.

The woman owner/hostess was very accommodating. First, I screwed up the automated reservation and when I arrived at 5:30 pm , the reservation was not in their computer. Turns out somehow, it was made for the next month. But she seated us anyway. I Was very thankful for that bc the restaurant is filled later on. We ordered flatbread and... More

Just returned from 2 weeks eating pasta in northern Italy, and this meal stood up to any we had there. Baby octopus and calamari starters were superb, and the pasta and sauces were excellent. Very rich, and the Sardinian flavors were interesting. Great wine list. Would definitely recommend and return.

I meant to say that the wine list is exTensive (you can judge for yourself if it is exPensive - I did not think so) with many wines coming from Sardinia. Sorry about the typo.

If you see the location: do not give up. If you see the facade: do not give up. If you see the interior: do not give up. Just choose anything (no not what what you already know) from the menu, close your eyes and enjoy! They have true original Italian/Sardinien dishes and extensive Italian/Sardinien wine list so be open for... More

I enjoyed this Italian adventure, having never eaten Sardinian food I was impressed. It is a bit out of the way, but worth the journey. The food was fresh and challenged me. The wine we drank complimented it well. We shared our plates 'family style' and that gave us a good mix of dishes. We all enjoyed it and left... More

Mar 13, 2014 We had a memorable dinner with my brother-and sister-law, who had never been here either. Though I made advance reservations about a month ago, the owner, Massimiliano Conti, could not find my reservation. Despite that, we were seated; we were so looking forward to dining here. We had an array of starters, octopus stew, marinated calmari, and... More

Came here during a visit from NY, thanks to Trip Advisor reviews. Excellent food. The owner himself took our order and advised us on selections and wine. Gracious and personal service; robust and unusual renderings of iconic Mediteranean food. The food is Sardinian, rather than "Italian."
