6 May 2017 The hotel I stayed at recommended Dietro Il Carcere for a non-touristy but genuine Sardinian dining experience. I arrived shortly after opening without a reservation, and was given a table for one inside. With my limited Italian, I managed to have them suggest dishes for me, after a complimentary appertif. The Agliata all'Algherese (grilled octopus stew with... More

Recommended by our hotel, Dietro Il Carcere was a pleasant surprise, quite informal but with interesting local dishes and a great selection of local wines. Excellent service

We decided not to eat in the old city to avoid the tourist traps. The owner of our rooms recommended it and we were very pleased. We were welcomed and offered a prosecco on the house upon arrival. The owner of the restaurant went through the menu with us which was helpful. We were not very hungry so only had... More

What's not to love? The outside tables had been pushed together to accommodate a large group of locals who looked to be creative hipsters. That's what caught our eye and attracted us to try it. The charming (and handsome!) server welcomed us like we were old friends, not tourists. We were seated and treated to a complimentary glass of local... More

This was the best food we had in Alghero. We had monkfish to start, which my girlfriend doesn't like but I persuaded her anyway and she said it was absolutely delicious. We then had culurgiones and a mountain of grilled steak with rocket and pecorino which was incredible! The best thing about this restaurant is the owner, he's so friendly... More

Lovely staff - no argument there. Starter: Zuppe of mussels and clams tasty if a little salty (and we're not salt fussy). Grilled fish main: overcooked, prawns/langoustine powdery texture and not a pleasant taste; even the squid was average. Rosemary potatoes lukewarm and lacking rosemary. Paid bill quickly and scarpered. We had such hopes of a meal outside the centro... More

We ate her twice during our 9 day stay in Alghero. It is near the old prison just past the Hotel Catalunya where we stayed. We stumbled across it on our first night but it was fully booked. We made a reservation and were not disappointed. The owner is really friendly, helpful and professional. The food is absolutely top class... More
