We visited this Osteria 3 times and every time the service was excellent and food very tasty. The dessert selection is the best we met for dinner. Also eat on Nicolo and A'Galaia, first one a little bit overpriced and second one guite nice, but Osteria nbr 1 for us.

We moored our sailing boat on the wall close by. The first day we lunched and had a mix of antipasti. It was as good as it gets. It was so good that we booked for the following evening. This is where either a jaded palate or reality cuts in: it was good but not as good. The prices were... More

Tuna specialist restaurant (but there's lots of other things too). Amazing tuna lasagne, one of the tastiest meals i've ever had. Service was good, location a bit of a walk from the centre but worth it. You'll need to book. Not too expensive either.

We happened upon this restaurant on our way back from walking around the saline and taking pictures of the flamingoes. Had no idea it was so highly rated but simply had a 'ping' to go there and try it out. We were not disappointed. A simple meal of spaghetti alla bottarga and grilled vegetables was exactly right, beautifully presented and... More

Not may Americans round here in Carloforte (S.Peter island), it is not discovered yet. It is what we would say a well kept secret in the Mediterranean sea. Home of the world wide known red tuna, absolute the best for its quality. Japan is the greatest buyer of it. Due to a limited and controlled fishing, only few of these... More

Restaurant somewhat hidden off the main boulevard and inconspicious front. Difficult to get a table on Friday evening end of July and left tel number, but Alberto (who speaks good english) called and arranged one. Simple setting, but excellent food paired w good local wines. Try the suggestions off the menu; tuna tartar, tagliata of tuna, etc. prices in line... More

My wife and I ate an early dinner (7:30 pm) at this recommended restaurant. It was a cold day and we were looking for hot soup. This restaurant serves a local traditional soup made with fava beans and vegetables. We ordered two bowls, plus bread, beer, and wine. At 10 euros per bowl it was substantially overpriced (that's $27 for... More

Pleasant experience, the staff and the cook were extremely attentive but I have to admit that, as it may happen from time to time, my own expectations were higher than the experience itself. The relation quality/price was average. The food was nicely presented and overall of good quality but not suprising in terms of freshness and taste. No negative remark... More
