We went to the restaurant one Thursday in June. We had to wait 45 minutes (I had a watch with me) between the starter and the second dish. After waiting, the waitress did not mention the extreme delay. We asked for the bill and we had to wait another 15 minutes because she was chit-chatting with another client (who had... More

Where do we start. This restaurant was one of two recommended in Lonely Planets, Sardinia. What a treat. We were the only two in for lunch and were spoiled rotten by Sabino who is head chef, cook and bottle wash. The best Caponata I have ever tasted and the most delicious culungiones which we had never tasted but wow. Little... More

The food was fantastic and Sabino and la donna (sorry I don't know her name) were the perfect hosts. They were more than happy to describe the dishes and and help out with choosing a nice Sardinian wine and their recommendations were perfect. A lovely night in a friendly but professional atmosphere and not that expensive.

Just enjoyed a fabulous meal at L'Antica Hostaria with friends. The chef, Sabino Cangialosi, was a most charming host and was able to explain the menu in English and assisted our choices so we enjoyed a delicious taste of fine Sardinian cuisine. A Most pleasurable evening. Jo

We came here from Alghero and we were not disapointed! The boss prepared one of the best fish meal we had during our trip in Sardinia. He is actually one of the most generous chefs I had the chance to meet, taking care of his guests while mastering the art of italian cooking. We will be back during our next... More

We had a very nice dinner here on a calm weekday in may. The chef suggested some creative variation of the menu. We weren't disappointed. It was delicious. Altough we don't speak italian and chef not english, we had some conversation and tips about sardinian wines afterwards. Nice evening. Chef wants that guests feel good and leave the place happy.

i had pizza and my wife spaghetti with sea food. The food was delicious, good service and nice local wine. the restaurant was full of locals with many children but was very funny to learn local words. Will definitely visit again the next time.
