We stayed in Cala Gonone for the week and ate dinner here once. Good pasta, I had clam and prawn and partner had veggie pasta dish......both were tasty and a reasonable price. Nice atmosphere, good house red wine and staff pleasant enough.

Went here with my husband for dinner based on reviews and was not disappointed. I had the spaghetti carbonara and my husband had the fried calamari, which came with fries. Both were excellent. Service was prompt and friendly. Even with dreadful weather, the place was almost full. The photos on the wall are interesting but the atmosphere is otherwise plain.... More

It was a terribly stormy night when we ran to this little haven of warmth. With much of the seasonal places closed Il Banjo turned out to be a good oasis. Great seafood and wine. Friendly and helpful service and a good laugh about the weather. Interesting old photos on the wall including mug shots of notorious old local bandits.

We had the tomato and garlic bruschetta which was amazing, we shared which was a good decision as it was huge. Then shared a pizza and ravioli, both were very good! Beautiful and fresh, the service was good and there was a great atmosphere outside. The tables either side of us had seafood which also looked good. Staff were friendly,... More
