You can have some good seafood dishes, but nothing outstanding. Very standard desserts. Service quite unfriendly and we had to wait almost 30 mins to seat with reservation.

Recommended by our landlord, it was very popular, the chefs squid ink special was amazing, as were the mixed mushroom pizza, and mixed fried fish, the exception was the soggy seafood pizza. I guess seafood being soggy by nature, it's was a silly choice to have made. We sat outside, it was comfortable, and the service was good, friendly and... More

Visited 11 Aug while on holiday, we were really lucky to be seated without a booking at 1930. The mussels starter was amazing probably the best we have had on the island. Our mains were fried squid and spaghetti with seafood. Both were great. If you like sea food you must try here, it is also very reasonably priced but... More

It's very popular so I would recommend booking in advance. The portions are massive especially the pizzas which could easily be shared one between two. It's excellent value and great quality. Wine is lovely and the decor is fab.

My friends and I stumbled upon this restaurant after doing a lot of research about where to eat in Alghero and what to eat in Sardinia! It exceeded our expectations and we had an incredible experience. We have been living in Italy for a year and visiting all our lives so our standards are high ;) I had a starter... More

On a side way to the beach walk you will find this hidden little gem! The staff was helpful but a bit nonchalant at the same time but this was not a factor that disturbed the overall experience! Fantastic pizza, fresh products! I had the fried squid and sea anemones and was very satisfied! This place is a bit cheaper... More

We saw the high reviews on Tripadvisor for this place and decided to try it. We had a spaghetti with vongole and bottarga and also a special pasta with tuna. Both were mediocre. We then has a grilled sea bream, which was too dry and cost 20 euros for a very small sized fish. We were so disappointed with the... More

Popular restaurant recommended by lots of locals. Packed & the pizzas looked like a good deal We had the tuna and octopus starters which were both just better than average but far from outstanding Fresh sea bass cooked in salt was flavorful and expensive House red wine was decent,surprisingly, and the thin bread deliciously salty Service was cold.

We were glad to find the best fish & sea fruit plate, spaghetti vongole and fregola in that wonderful restaurant - we wanted to come for a second time but it was already fully booked - so reservation is recommended - very friendly service and polite staff.
