Location and contact

Il ristorante 'Cavallino della Giara' nasce a Barumini nel 1986, con l’obiettivo di unire alla tradizione culinaria locale un tocco di contemporaneità; questo avviene grazie all’impegno e alla dedizione di chi da sempre intende la cucina come un’esperienza dall’alto contenuto sensoriale. Il ristorante, vicinissimo al complesso archeologico 'Su Nuraxi' (il più grande villaggio nuragico presente nell’isola), è circondato da un incantevole paesaggio: ai piedi della giara di Gesturi guarda sul fronte del bellissimo castello di Lasplassas e alle vaste distese tipiche della 'Marmilla'. La perfetta armonia con la natura e le bellezze archeologiche, unite all’ospitalità e all’accoglienza, danno al ristorante

Just outside Barumini, the restaurant is a nice place to visit in family: A large room and a friendly staff. The food was ok but not outstanding. A typical average Italian restaurant.

The Ravioli della casa is really good, with a piece of lamb in the side, beautifully made. The lamb chop does have too much fat, but the meat part is delicious as well. The house wine is a bit too much Oakwood flavor for me,...More
