Been to this restaurant 4 times (over 3 Sardinian visits ) with my family of 4 inc 2 children. Nice food and wine - the fish is good and what they specialize in but also fairly priced. Nice friendly service too. .. Tip would be to book in advance and ask for a table in the outside area.

We went to this restaurant, because we saw every night long row waiting for dinner, also we checked reviews, and decided to go there. I ordered ravioli filled with potato and cheese. I didnt like, it was tasteless and portion was really small. My sister had octopus in spicy tomato sauce and compared to similar food in other restaurant taste... More

Not in the middle of the shopping streets but a bit more up and hidden we found this pizzeria. Very nice outside area with some great Italian pizza for great prices. A lot of the other restaurants were either closed for lunch or didn't serve pizza for lunch and luckily we ended up here. I would visit again.

A little bit "out of the way" behind the main street but it's worth going. Food is typical Italian and the setting is very nice.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant to us, and as it was busy and bustling on a Saturday evening we thought it must be a popular choice with locals too. However, once seated, it took 20 minutes for a waiter to even take our drinks order. We struggled to get anyone's attention throughout - they seemed really understaffed for a Saturday... More

Visited this restaurant, but was very disappointed. Very commercial approach. Some dishes very overpriced. Basically was our worst meal in Vilasimius.When we expressed unhappiness in a very polite manner, the waitress and the manager became rather aggressive.

I had the salmon pasta which was fantastic. They don't serve pizza at lunch which was a surprise. My boyfriend had mussels which were really good too. The tiramisu wasn't great. The service was slow but they were friendly and made an effort to speak English which was nice. The terrace outside is ambient. The bread they served was nice... More

If you're in the area you could do a lot worse than lunch, or dinner, at La Lantera and judging by the number of locals dining they think so too. Good prices, large portions, plenty of options.
