“What a find ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Italian restaurants in any country can often be very hit or miss - but not this one!
We chose this after we felt so tired from sightseeing that we couldn't face going back into town ( no matter how easy ) from our hotel the K+K Harras.
Reception booked the table and what a great night we had.

The food was excellent - as good as many top Italian restaurants in London. The wine list - all from Sardinia was well priced and good value. The owner chef ( Italian ) and his Czech wife could not have been more accommodating, friendly and helpful. We were surrounded by locals all having a jolly time.

A great meal and night out - with the good selection of grappas helping to make it memorable (?!)

“Sardinian specialities, but just as an Italian restaurant ...on a completely new level!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Well, I have been to quite a few Italians in this area of Munich and several across town, but this place takes the standard to a whole new level!!

When you enter this Trattoria, stuck away in another unknown side street, it's like entering an Aladdin's Cave. There's all sorts of interesting artifacts, pictures, books, etc stacked around the walls and bar so even if your date is rather boring you can scan around the room for more interesting stimuli.

Paolo and lady are very attentive to service, it's easy to relax and all the dishes arrive at your table without any stress whatsoever. The food is really outstanding and the wine goes very well. It's not a big restaurant, just the right size with the right level of cosiness and informality.

Certainly, the prices are more expensive than other Italians nearby but none of them can compete with the food and Sardinian specialities on offer here. Between the two of us we spent circa seventy Euros on a blindingly-good mixed anti-pasti, a wild boar pasta, stuffed calamari and a Sardinian dessert which fused a British-style Cornish pasty with cheese and honey. Oh, a couple of glasses of wine, a beer and a fizzy blackcurrant juice came under that bill too.

My burd though would rate this place as four points (Very Good) as she felt that her wild boar pasta was too salty. But let's face it, she's just bah-humbug because deep down inside she knew she should have gone with the seafood risotto.

Anyway, back to MY review ...this place is definitely DEFINITELY worth a trip across town.
