Our best restaurant experience in Castelsardo. We visited the restaurant at three different occassions and were very satisfied with the food, service and atmosphere. Especially try the fishdisches recommended!

It was late evening, when we decided to find this restaurant in Castelsardo old city (by the way old city is fantastic!!!), but I need to say that we were very dissapointed about service & food quality. You shouldn't go there, if You want try specialities of Sardinia as well. Spagetti with seafood was worst I ever ate. Dessert was... More

On the advice of the waiter we had the fish antipasti and then a whole fish cooked at the chefs preference. I am very close to giving this meal 5 stars it was just a little expensive for what we expected having ordered not from the menu but because the meal was meant to be good price (ultimately €100 for...

What a find tucked in next to the amazing castle in this lovely seaside town. Friendly and attentive, the staff was wonderful and the food was just as good. The house wine was tasty and the pasta was among the best I had on the island. The eggplant was also very good. We sat outside on a perfect day and... More

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....
