We felt humble seeing it has been serving food ever since I was 7 years old. Beautiful dining room. We were the first diners at 7 PM as soon as they opened. House Red wine was very good and very cheap for 5 Euro (500 ml). However, nothing came at the table with the wine. No bread, no olives, absolutely... More

We were a party of 5 at the very end of October when most other places are closed outside Olbia. Delicious food in a small off the main street traditional family restaurant. The Mushroom and Chestnut pasta was a hit as were a local pasta ball stuffed with potato and meat.

Il is an old restaurant with very good food. They have a good pasta with a local ingredient called "botarga". The "fritto misto" is very good and are a lot of calamari, shrimps and octopus. We've tuna with strawberries which is absolutely delicious. In my opinion if come to Olbia you need to eat here!!!

Ate here during our stay at Olbia. He food was good along with the service. Average price for the area. Had the fish with veg and salad as I was a bit carbed out! My husband had the ravioli which was good but not as good as others!

So even on a weekday its recommended to make a reservation. The staff was overwhelmingly friendly and everybody spoke quite good english. We ordered a bottle of local vermentino from their nice selected winelist.... More
