The most disgusting meal we have had during our 2 week stay. We were put at the back of the restaurant at a cramped table. Made to order what they told us to despite us saying we were happy to wait for the food. The owner was rude and unattentive. I really wouldn't suggest that non Italian tourists go here...... More

this is a tiny restaurant in the old town and is fantastic. The service was amazing and nothing is too much trouble - there was a table next to us with some children who wanted Pizza. Le Cisterne does not do pizzas so the owner went to another restaurant and got them a pizza. The food was wonderful - carpaccio... More

We ate here a number of times during our 4 day stay in Castelsardo in June 2013. Both lunch and dinner options are delicious and we tried various seafood and pasta dishes from their menu which were all excellent. The waiters are lovely and the setting very cute in a tiny square in the old town. The indoor seating is... More

I did my research before my trip, printed off all the listings from Trip Advisor, and promptly left them at home! So, needless to say I was relieved when we found this, tucked away up by the castle. Set in the castle wall (by the looks of things) it was very atmospheric. The food was very good, and a reasonable... More

We drove through Castelsardo at the tail end of a long day and decided to park up and look for a place to eat. After walking through a fair bit of the town, and dodging any number of seedy looking eateries, we climbed higher until we were within the walls of the old town that butts-up to the castle itself....

Overall it was a great experience. Sitting inside is much comfortable even though outside is more caratteristic. The food is very good and good choice over the menu. We would reccomend to let the cook suggest you for the choice of the day. Appetizer quite interesting while we would definitely go for pastas and fish. Be aware that the wine... More

Just by a pure hasard we have found this restaurant and it made our evening. This is the only place where we have eaten fresh tuna bottarga. The decor is in a grotto in a small passage. Ideal in a hot day in the summer. The desserts were just a wonder. The owner insisted to make ma have a try... More
