We had a very jolly and good dinner for my birthday in the pretty covered terrace of this elegant restaurant in the middle of porto rotondo. Starting with hot crispy flat bread which we demolished in about twenty seconds we had very good seafood anti pasti including the carpaccio of seafood which was super fresh. Then came the highlight of... More

We really do love it since many years!!! Perfect service, perfect ambiente, excellent wine list (white wine recommendations: Gaja Rossj Bass, Gaja Rey & Villa di Chiesa are our favorites),... More

I have been coming to this restaurant since the beginning of time as Sardinia is where I pass my summer holidays each year. Da Giovannino never fails to impress. Although I find everything to be great here, the fish and seafood are outstanding. During my last visit I had the raw dover sole as part of our sharing platter of... More

Da Giovannino is as old school as it gets in Sardinia and we loved every moment (and mouthful) of the whole experience. From the second we walked in and spotted the traditional and yet not twee decor we knew we were somewhere special. A big brass bar that spills into the wine cellar, mediterranean tiled floors and stuffed birds are... More

We were there for a special dinner and because everybody in porto rotondo recommanded this place as the best restaurant in this area. It was quite impossible to park the car and they don t have any available places or parking close to the restaurant so we started with 40 mn of delay... Concerning the food, it s pretty average...

We dined here last night based on reviews from Trip Advisor. I must say that the service was excellent as was the food. We had everything from the delicious seafood antipasti to the wonderful fregula and ravioli. Everything was excellent! They offered both homemade olive oil and wine vinegar and they were both amazing. Both the red and white wine... More

This restaurant is amazing, a must stop if you are in Porto Rotondo. Get the Scampi and the unbelievable BOTTARGA it honestly melts in your mouth. The Brunello wine and the deserts (Tiramisu) are to die for. The restaurant is in the center of Porto Rondo with easy parking. Please check this place out, you will not be disappointed.
