Typical locals place

Walked at 7:30 for a cheery welcome from locals in the bar area but an empty restaurant. Nice menu choice and freshly cooked traditional food. Nothing exciting but all plain and good. By portions of pasta.

Popped in on the way back to the hotel. Friendly service and hot chocolate to die for! Clean, casual seating and lovely atmosphere.

We asked about this place at our hotel & we were told 'it's just a cafe'. It's not a cafe, it's a restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed the steak and salads that we had, good friendly service, good wine and reasonably priced. We were very pleasantly surprised and subsequently went back a second time. Definitely worth a visit and would advise booking... More

We ate here for lunch and the food was great. The best spaghetti alle vongole I had in Sardinia. The chef came out to ask us if we enjoyed our meal and I told him how much I loved it....very charming place. The view of the mountains at this restaurant was breathtaking.

This is a cozy café were you can sit down and have a Sardinian beer or a glas of wine while watching people stroll by on the street. Good location and good varity of drinks.

Loved the salads, there was a choice of about six or eight of them and all were good, fresh and ample in size. The waiting staff were very helpful even though their English wasn't good and our Italian even worse. We Ate here for lunch every day, as did various other guests from our hotel as well as Italian locals.

Having just got back from San Pantaleo and reflected on the various cafes,bars and restaurants we frequented,this one came out on top for service, atmosphere (locals all use it, you have to be early to get a table,)food and fun. The Chef/owner is quite superb, his food is well seasoned presented in rustic chic way and generally more than you... More
