Outstanding dining experience

Lovely, intimate Sardinian restaurant tucked away in Noe Valley. We went for a birthday dinner and it was every bit the celebration we wanted. Every course was simply outstanding. The service is spot on without being too formal or overbearing. A true gem!

This is undoubtedly the best Italian food that I've ever had in my life. We started with several small plates and I ordered the squid ink pasta - which was to DIE for. I can close my eyes and still recollect the taste.

Wonderful handmade pasta and fresh seafood. The special goat ragu was amazing. The wine list has a number of fantastic Sardinian gems at very reasonable prices. Make sure to make a reservation. It's a small place and is always busy.

Three of us ate family style and were delighted with our starters of fish stew, baby octopus, and a squid ink linguine dish, all generous portions. Then our main course of lamb arrived and I was sorry I had filled up on the fish stew, tasty though it was. The lamb was exceptional! Medium rare char-grilled slices that were tender... More

This is not what Americans expect of an Italian restaurant. This is truly Sardinian, from the language of the menu, through the wine list, to the food itself. The service is helpful ( something absolutely necessary to those of us who have not spent any length of time in Sardinia) and perfectly timed, the wine list is extensive ( and... More

You need to make reservations well in advance. Tiny little restaurant. We loved Monterey calamari, octopus stew and grilled sea bass. They have a huge wine list. We tried some Sardinian wines and they were good. Our waiter was great. He let us try 3-4 different wines before choosing the one we liked. Great little neighborhood restaurant.

You probably need to make reservations well in advance, since it's a pretty small place. But the food- excellent. It's the perfect mix of next-door nonna cooking and 'high palate' cuisine. All the essences of Italian/Mediterranean food are there, and yet it's much more. The Sardinian roots of the kitchen give the dishes a special twist (it's not Sicilian, as... More

This small restaurant serves delicious Sicilian cuisine, which is not the typical fare you'll find on Italian menus. I've dined here multiple times and have never had a bad meal. Their specials, esp. the Santa Barbara prawns are outstanding. The waitstaff are friendly and professional which adds to the overall experience of this beloved neighborhood gem.

This restaurant was recommended by a local resident. It was a special, intimate dining experience. Lorella has never met a stanger and the staff were friendly and helpful, and the food was as special as suggested. If you want real Sardinia Italian, this is the place. Our daughter said the fish stew was exquisite.
