A lovely quiet place for breakfast. Serve lovely croissants and cappuccino. Service quick and staff very polite and friendly despite us not speaking much Italian.

We ate at Villanova twice during our holiday in Cagliari and both times had delicious food, The first time we had the lunch time buffet, which was good value and had a wide range of food available including many salads, pizza and hot dishes. The waiter advised us on which food was suitable for us as vegetarians (much of it!)... More

Villanova Cafe Bistro is a nice place with a good terrace. It serves good drinks and food, however on monday dinner choice is limited.

I had a late lunch there. Lots of bistro / cafe are closed at 3 pm as siesta is on but they were open. The young waitress was very nice. I order a calzone and it was delicious. The beer wasn't quiet as cold as I like but still ok. The setting is very nice and a fan blows over... More

If you work for a magazine and you're desperately looking for the worst waiter ever, well, you just found your place! Certain people should just realize that is not their job: rude, sweat and he didn't say hello or goodbye once we got in and got out. All he said was that the table where we had seat was supposed...

Nice little garden style restaurant. Fast service and not too pricey for the city. Wine by the glass was a bit steep.

We found this spot on a dismal Sunday morning and Cagliari was not seen at it's best so we were happy to stumble over this wee Cafe off the shopping area. To be fair we only wanted a Cafe Americano and a sparking water but it took 35 minutes to arrive. The coffee was good but surely the Italians do... More

Low quality and high costs. The worst place to have dinner in Cagliari. Completely mad. Ma pensate che la gente abbia l'anello al naso?
