Although this restaurant is recoemmended in many guides, it keeps it authentic mood. And feeds well. Best value for money is a fixed menu. For 18 E you have a delicious pasta (con vongole, for instance), a fresh fishes from the market fried in oil, contorno and wine. Separate plates also in very comeptitive prices. But what matters the most... More

We went a Monday evening in the beginning of May, the place was full of locals so calling it a tourist trap seems incorrect. In fact, we really liked what was served - had a tasty spaghetti al vongole and a crunchy mountain of fritto misto. Basically, it's a cheap, simple and very Italian place, and we thought it was...

Ci Pensa Cannas is a nice restaurant in the heart of the harbour district of Cagliari. In a large, but cosy, dining room the food is served usually in reasonable time (I've been there a couple of times); delays are possible due to popularity of the place. In order to secure a good table in the week-ends, you'd better reserve... More

This was the restaurant where we had dinner on our first night in Cagliari. We felt tired and we thought it would be a good idea to eat an earthy meal at a cheap and cheerful place. The restaurant also appeared in the 2 touristic guides we had. Finally, coming from a Mediterranean country myself, I love the concept of... More

We absolutely loved this place for lunch in Cagliari. It's so incredibly typically Italian. The service was hilariously abrupt (they have no interest in catering to the tourist market - they're quite rightly much more interested in their loyal local customers who have clearly all been going for years). The food was the best value and best quality of our... More

Full of locals at lunchtime, a great sign in my view. Couple of minutes wait while they cleared and reset a table.Great homemade vegetable soup, followed by delicious ricotta and herb stuffed ravioli. Lovely local red wine at 2 euros for a 250ml jug! Not fine dining but good honest food at a cost that offers amazing value.

Good simple food with no pretensions. Very fresh fish and seafood. Delicious mussels. Fast and friendly service. Far from a tourist trap as some reviewers have mentioned. It was full of local people. Normal prices, the pasta started at 4 euros and not 12-15 euros like all the other restaurants in Cagliari . A cover charge of 3 euros for... More

I thought this restaurant may have been a tourist trap - but thought I'd give it a go anyway - it is situated in a nice location with great atmosphere. The food surpassed my expectations - full of flavour and very reasonably priced.

Walked past this place so many times as apartment was very near. Food always looked great on tables...tough to choose between this place and Olympic across street. Both always packed with more locals than tourists. Stopped here more than once. Service was very friendly and food was good. I felt like was cheating on them when eating across street at... More
