We spent a great dinner at this place, good location, kind helpful staff. Food was excellent, the best risotto we tried, seafood pasta was very delicious, we very not able to say no for dessert: triamisu was very good, if you are in Porto Torres, go there and have a great Italian lunch or dinner.

We ate here on a Sunday lunch time. By the time we were mid way through our meal, there were barely any seats left, it was full of the locals! I had a pizza which was delicious. My mum ordered a pasta dish but they brought out a slightly different dish but she enjoyed it nonetheless - it could have... More

We came here from Stintino almost 25 minutes by car. I think that it was the best decision of our vacation. Food was excellent and everything was appropriate to Italian kitchen. Not only the food, the service was also 5 stars. I recommend this place to all travelers looking for an excellent place.

We were pleasantly surprised to discover this restaurant (a 5 mins walk from where we were staying). We had not made a reservation but the staff was quick in sorting us out with a table for two. Service was prompt and professional and the food tasted very good. We shared a tagliatelle all'astice for two and after having tasted the... More

We followed tripadvisor's reviews and we were not disappointed at all. We reserved a table and we were lucky after some smiles and nice words to get it in the garden. The manager and the waitress were both charming and extremely welcoming. They went the extra mile on every single request that we had. Service is of high standard in... More

Having read several of the promising reviews we decided to visit this restaurant. We went early as we had not reserved a table. The service was efficient and the food excellent. It obviously has a good reputation as it was full when we left. A welcoming and vibrant atmosphere. Would certainly visit again.

On a hot summer evening a table under the trees in the piazza was the perfect place to be. We were glad we booked as the tables filled up quickly and many of the other customers were clearly regulars. The service was friendly and the entire meal was great value for money. My mouth still waters when I think of... More
