We ate outside on a very warm evening, the atmosphere was busy and friendly, very family orientated. The staff were attentive and helpful with the menu choices, cocktails and fabulous Sardinian wines. The food was excellent, generous portions, elegantly served and delicious. What made the evening special was that Luigi, head Chef and owner, visited each table to chat and... More

First night visit all perfect. The tuna tartar and grilled octopus starters both excellent and dishes very creatively presented as was the grilled tuna for main. The main pasta with fish eggs and truffle even better and an absolute dream course. Price for the quality of food, excellent service (Luigi) himself serving part of the dinner and experience more than... More

Luigi Pomata himself guided us through the menu, took our order and presented us with the bill which is a superb touch and really struck out. He's not only confident in his produce but clearly his well-oiled machine too. We started off with the roasted octopus in balsamic vinegar a plate of mixed fish carpaccio and a couple of oysters...

If you don't make it to Carloforte during your trip to Sardinia, then this is the next best thing, a typical "Carlofortino" restaurant. They serve excellent Tuna, worth trying. And their seafood carbonara was really nice.

We had struggled to find a restaurant and arrived quite late and very hungry. We sat outside as it was a lovely evening. The service was very good and fortunately for us the food arrived very swiftly. This is clearly a very popular restaurant and for good reason. It is not the cheapest place to eat but the food was...

Delicious food - creatively prepared and combining some interesting flavours. they've got the textures right too. Swish decor and very efficient staff. We appreciated the slight Asian influence in the menu and the young vibe in the restaurant overall.

It is refreshing to see such a senior chef having the confidence in his kitchen staff selection, menus and preparation to be able to concentrate on hosting clients directly from front-of-house. The overall service was fast, professional, knowledgeable and effective. The four of us chose different starter dishes - totally memorable and decent portions. This is not just a highly... More

We had lunch outdoors at this chic Cagliari restaurant at the foot of the Viale Regina Margherita facing the port which is run by a Sardinian chef who has a stint at Le Cirque in New York City under his belt. Chef Luigi Pomata, a rising star on the Italian culinary scene, hails from Carloforte, an island off the southwest... More

Found this gem through family, and came back right away the next evening. Inspired food creations, that don't go over board, but combine flavours and create some really special dishes. Simple food, but with a twist. The wine selection is great, especially the local ones, and pricing is very very fair. It's amazing to discover the local wines, some of... More
