“A genuine taste of Italy in Windhoek”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Authentic anti-pasta, pasta and the usual variety of main course dishes. What a discovery in this beautiful city. Greta food mixed with the lively, demonstrative service you would expect to find in Rome, Venice, Florence etc. If you're missing a good Italian family style Tratorria while savouring the great Namibian wildlife experience, take a couple of days off in Windhoek and visit Sardinia and N.I.C.E (see my review of NICE)

“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.
