We return to this restaurant each time we are in Sardinia and it is a firm favorite. This occasion was for an 80th celebration for 8 people ranging from 6 to 80! Every single dish was fresh, hot and fantastic. The local recommended wine was...More

We visited the restaurant for lunch after having seen the positive review. To be honest, we have not been impressed. We had two starters and two fish dishes, but what we got was really not matching the expectations. Fish was indeed fresh, but the preparation...More

This restaurant has the same name like the hotel opposite side. I guess because of this it belongs together. On arrival on a Monday at 12:30 at lunch time each table outside was free. We took a seat. Then we were sitting there but no...More

I was staying in Cagliari for three nights and as luck would have it I found the best food on the last night. My main dish of Stracetti di Manzo was perfectly cooked. Service was welcoming and efficient.

If you are looking for fish, this place offers many different plates. Take care that some food is not fresh but prepared from frozen ingredients. These are marked with a star (*) in the menu and we cannot recommend them. The freshly prepared food is...More

Most restaurants around the port area serve very similar dishes. Ristorante Italia is a bit more imaginative. The Trofi with group ragout and roasted tomato was a real winner. Salads however, need improving.

We visited on our first night in Cagliari and we weren't disappointed. We had the seafood chef's menu. The seafood was fabulous- especially the mussel stew. And the service was attentive. I highly recommend.

We arrived at 8 pm on a busy Saturday evening, hoping they could seat us without a reservation. We received the only unreserved table outside and started with oysters and tuna tartare. Both arrived rapidly and were delicious, very fresh. It took a while for...More

This is traditional restaurant, family owned business that is well managed and does not let quality drop. Prices are reasonable and they have dishes that are difficult to find on the menu elsewhere. Choice of wine is huge thanks to the wine shop inside the...More

Ristorante storico aperto e gestito dalla stessa famiglia dal 1921, un locale rustico ed elegante ricavato dagli antichi magazzini del sale, travi in ginepro e mattoni a vista oltre ad antichi pezzi del mondo agricolo sardo son caratteristici di questo locale. Ad alcuni piatti della cucina tradizionale sarda si affiancano diversi piatti stagionali e di crudo, proposti dal giovane Chef Filippo Mundula. Interessante anche la cantina a vista ( dietro ad un antico portone in legno risalente ad un granaio dell' 800 ) lista vini ampia con diverse etichette pregiate, oltre ai classici vini famosi isolani come il Turriga presente in carta dall'annata '93, un attenta selezione di etichette pregiate che spaziano dai Borgogna 1er Cru agli Champagne ai grandi vini Toscani e Piemontesi a prezzi da enoteca, interessante anche la selezione di vini al calice. Probabilmente la cosa piu bella del Ristorante Italia e la vetrina del pesce da dove poter scegliere il pescato fresco del giorno, oltre all'acquario dei crostacei all'ingresso. Anche l'aperitivo di benvunuto e degno di nota.
