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.

Had an amazing dinner here on our first night. Incredible Ortolana veggie pizza with so much delicious topping, and sausage and ham pizza which was amazing too. On our last night, having tried many other pizzas we returned here since we couldn't resist. Since it was a busy Saturday night they were able to give us a take away which... More

This place was highly recommended by our hotel for seafood. Did not disappoint. The location is not the best (in front of the local bus station), though their service and fish are excellent. We had the local specialty in Alghero "arragosta alla catalana". Highly recommended.

Upon the recommendation from our dive leader, we took the drive from our hotel to Alghero. Very easy to find, just behind the main road, this restaurant was earmarked to be a great dining experience solely due to the huge amount of local guests clamouring to get in. Yes. Call and book a table in advance. Any day if the... More

Characteristic Sardinian restaurant, had dinner and all the food was just great, service is good, price slightly higher but the food is fresh and really good. If you want to be sure to have a great dinner this is the place.

It was full, so we had to wait for 45min, in that time we could walk around the old town a bit; very nice! The food was good and we tried the local desert; not for us, but the taste was good!

Simply the best pizza we have had here. Good price, good food, wine and service. We will definitely be back . We had not booked so were lucky to get a table in this popular restaurant, not just for pizza. We will try the seafood next time.

Just outside the old part of town, near the park. Really nice staff. A lot of locals come over to eat, so not just a tourist restaurant. Great pizza, fresh seafood. We had a nice evenig there.
