Great Pasta

The pasta here was just lovely - I had the carbonara. Service a bit brusque but we came to expect that in Italy. We went twice here as the other place in town that was great got full and there was nowhere to sit. Linus has a nice atmosphere - terrace on the main street and good solid food.

We meandered into this restaurant by chance, just walking the strip looking for some dinner. We split a bottle of wine, shared insalata mist, and I had the spicy olive oil pasta and my husband had 4 cheese sauce. The pasta was perfectly cooked, the sauces very flavorful, the salad fresh, the wine cold. Good portions and super, super cheap.... More

We visited Liuns three times in our 7 day trip! The service was brilliant, delicious rustic and traditional food (more Italian than Sardinian which we preferred) and great value for money. My partner still talks about the margarita pizza (4 euros!) - you must go here if you stay in Canningione!

Cheap, tasty, homemade, what more can you ask for! Homemade pasta with homemade sauce and a glass of wine at a reasonable price is just perfect.

This restaurant is located on the edge of town and has a nice outside area where you can people watch. Food is ok but certainly not the best we have had during our stay. Service was lacking (the waitress kept forgetting to bring 'il conto') but that was the case in all the places we visited. We had a pleasant... More

Went with my fiancé. Was looking forward to my very first meal out in Sardinia. I ordered prawns with rocket, vodka and light cream sauce, the most expensive meal in their house speciality pasta menu. Fiancé ordered baby clams with spaghetti. His meal was delicious, mine was awful. I had 4 little prawns and hardly any rocket on a huge... More

Had a Pizza there this week! Extremely disappointing, paid 11Euro for a watery Shrimp Pizza. The filling was very skimp, with hardly any cheese and the Shrimps were so tiny they looked as if they had just hatched!!. I complained to the Manager who was completlely disinterested and when I asked for a refund, I was only given half of... More

Nothing special but it was reasonable and close to where we were staying. Pizza was good and the house red was a solid choice. Not amazing but not bad either.

We went for a pizza which was not good.It was paper thin with hardly any topping.Go to the cotton club or Riva Azzura the pizzas are very good and the staff friendly.At Linus they are rude and they charge a hefty cover charge for a dingy table with paper table cloths.

Good thin pizza- even the dessert one was scrummy. And the fish - grilled sea bream was superb. Good value too.
