It is a very well located restaurant, right at the sea and in tranquillity. They focus on sea food and fish, so if you don't eat this, there is no point in going there. Meals are good and sometimes surprisingly innovative. The sea food mix starter is excellent and worth every cent.

There were really good and elegant starters. Than I had tomato pasta and it was normal, nothing special. But the waiter is stupid. I had to call three times for reservation and the waiter everytime told me that he don't know if i can come to lunch, because his boss wasn't there..

This place is a gem! In our 8 night stay in Castelsardo we returned again and again. What was best the food, the location, the service, the ambiance? All were quite exceptional making this a truly great evening. If we had to design a great restaurant this would be it!

Il Cavallucia definitely is the Best Place we experienced during our three stays on Sardinia within the previous 3 visits! A place to remember wrt food and perfect service on international level. And with a huge mass of personal spirit being given by the friendly owner and his brother, the master in the kitchen! Always make reservation for window seating... More

This is a short drive out of Castelsardo along the coast and is in a lovely position. There didn't appear to really be a menu and they serve a selection of starters (€25 per couple) and then a pasta course which you can choose. The food was all excellent and we felt that it was also good value. the only... More

We ate here for a whole week, both lunch and dinner and we always let the staff decide what we should eat. Everything in the resturant that we tried was all above our expectations and we can strongly recomend this Resturant for its excellent food and first class service. And not to forget the stunning view over the mediterainan sea... More

Second review, in English this time to try and better reciprocate the help we get from international reviewers. In short, Sardinia is one of the best places if you want to connect to the uncompromising raw quality of Nature - beautiful, merciless, overwhelming, soothing. Sardinia is about death and life, but but one can choose to sublimate it in a... More
