One of the most popular restaurants in Cagliari. All seafood is delicious. The service is great and prices are very affordable. Gets busy after 8:30 and wait times in weekends over an hour. Best make reservation.

After the initial ordering fase, we felt invisible and ignored. We didnt know that this was the kind of restaurant were you order 3 dishes, and when the waiter figured out we didnt have a clue, he basically just treated us like ghosts. When we wanted to get the check and leave, he just walked past us, even when we... More

We had our lunch here, and it was amazing! I had the lobster and it was one of the best I've had so far. The food was really really good. The prices might be a bit higher than at other restaurants in the Marina, but it is still affordable. Really recommend this restaurant!

The real taste of Mediterrenian and Italian cusine. Very nice prepared seafood dishes and all fresh ones mixed with high quality olive oil. Very professional cooked pastas. You MUST try! If you have visited Sardegna! We couldnt do reservation, but from the door to the waiters, they are so kind and nice. I am think they were all Italians :)... More

Being a Portuguese family on vacation in Italy, we were very pleased when one of the waiters called a Brazilian colleague to help us with our order. The gentleman provided excellent food and wine recommendations. Overall, I was pleased about everything in this restaurant, although by the end of our meal, the room was starting to be a little rowdy... More

The food was great, we ordered a bottle of wine but when eating the last bite they are already clearing the plates and asking if we wanted coffee while we still had half a bottle of wine. The staff was friendly but very pushy to get us out of there quickly so the table could be used again. We had... More

We went to this restaurant because it looked so cozy and the atmosphere was great! We ordered mussels in tomato sauce as starter and it was absolutely delicious! Then I ordered the home made pasta with sausage and got very disappointed. The sauce was blend and the pasta undercooked. I also do not believe this was home made. After we... More

After a brief wander around the area on my first night in Sardinia, I decided upon this restaurant as it seemed to be the busiest around (I was early at 7 30 as it seems to be the norm to eat later) I was lucky to bag the last outside table, although it looked very nice inside. I was dining... More

Very, very charming spot in one of Cagliaris small streets. The pasta with seafood knocked me off, it was absolutely amazing - the taste of the home made pasta, the perfect tomato sauce and the seafood - it was just perfect! We were recommended a very nice red Sardinian wine for the food as well. Great service!

Not our main waiter, he was really good/nice, maybe because of this he was extra busy. So there were other 2 going around and one of them was a bit on the rude side, a real pity! The food was divine, well presented, fresh, the herbs used made the flavours different and very interesting, our waiter recommended an antipasti selection... More
