“Nice Place on Main St”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Sardinia is a nice italian restaurant in downtown Windhoek. They do good pizza and pasta dishes as well as some more traditional game based Namibian dishes.
The service was good, the beer was good too and I would have no problem recommending this as a decent place to dine. it's not gonna rock your world, but it good filling food and a perfectly good choice.

“Benchmark Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

This new and second Sardinia - Blue Olive restaurant makes the best pizzas in Namibia. The thin-base pizzas with fresh toppings are perfect - do not try anywhere else if you want authentic pizzas. Pasta dishes are superb and they have a wide selection to suit everyone, and you will not be disappointed with the meat and chicken (try the lemon chicken!) dishes. The tables are unfortunately too close to each other - or maybe it was just me feeling cramped in. But the great food and service make up for this. Their freshly baked (rye) bread is excellent - buy a loaf when you leave. Conclude your meal with a espresso and grappa on the side. A separate smoker's area is available.

“Best pizzas in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Two expat locals took me there as it was their favourite. I was not disappointed. The pizzas are thin and crispy and all the ingredients so fresh. Beautiful. As other reviewers have said, the tables are close together and this makes it very noisy when busy, so ask for one by the window to limit the noise levels!
