“Top quality sardinian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Went here for dinner. Warm and friendly service and very good advise for wine from the owner. Appetizers, pasta dishes and the porceddu were all among the highest quality we have experienced in Sardinia. Worth a visit.

“Real stuff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

One of the major issues of tourism in Sardinia is to distinguish real stuff from fakes for tourists...
Ispinigoli restaurant definitely represents real stuff. In most of the cases they organize lunch or dinner for wedding parties of local people.
We got the place definitely too late and we missed the breathtaking landscape, that has been described by my friends, former customer of the restaurant.
The real proof of quality, beyond very good starters, was the 'porceddu' (small pork) very well cooked, delicious.
The wine, il moro, comes from a pretty novel vineyard and was suggested by the owner who came and visit our table for suggestions and small talks.
Absolutely suggested.

“One of the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

My husband and I stopped here for lunch after visiting the grotto Ispinigoli, expecting it to be a tourist trap. We were pleasantly surprised by the lovely service and fantastic food. We completely enjoyed the roast pork and grilled fish of the day. Choose from the extensive local cheese list for a great extra treat, and fresh fruit for dessert hit the spot.

Located high up on a hillside, the very big terrace has a beautiful view with a splendid sunset!! The food is good - probably a nice place to stay at!

“Wonderful view from a cool verandah. Simple local wonderful food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

We stumbled on this by accident! Happy accident! We are planning to go back again. The waitresses were very patient is explaining the menu. There were loads of authentic choices for my vegetarian husband while the carnivore in me was happy with the wild boar in a rich wine sauce -- which despite a hot summer day, belies the it's name and was extremely light. Non tourist size ( ie giant) portions. The best complementary ricotta.
