“A must for your visit at Costa Smeralda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2010

This restaurant has a simple cuisine with good and fresh regional ingridients.
But it will surprise you also at the end of the evening, when the bill will be at least 50% less then average at Costa Smeralda :)
It has a very big restaurant and a very nice terrace (a tip for smokers)
The food comes despite many people surprisingly fast.
My favourite: Sauté di cozze is very well made.

“Definitely recommend this - it's a treasure find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2010

This restaurant was really very good.
Excellent Value for money
A great menu selection.
Staff are really helpful.
It's very popular with locals it would seem, and they seem to book - so if you can do that, you would be best advised.
If you don't book - best you turn up before about 9.30, otherwise you may struggle to get a table,,,,,, even though the restaurant is MASSIVE..
It also has a playground for the children at the back.... which is a great..

“This truly was a fantastic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2009

Situated on the main road between Porto Cerva and Azarchena, this restaurant provided everything you would look for in a typical Sardinian eatery, fantastic food, ambience, service and value.

On our recent trip to Sardinia we took two meals, the first from the main menu and the second the typical Sardinian menu which cost only €21.50 per head excluding wine. For that we had antipasti (cured meats, bread and pickled vegetables) followed by a plate of three different pastas, then roasted suckling pig and desert, a beautifully crisp pastry containing a chees and smothered with honey.

The staff are very attentive and a guided tour of the wine cellar with complimentary grappa rounded off a fantastic evening.
