Excellent seafood, beautiful pasta and great fish. Couldn't fault it. There's plenty of choice of restaurants to eat at Palau, this was one of the best. Food from the sea and white wine rules here, so if that's what you're looking for then come here. Very friendly service too. Grazie!

With friends we visited this restaurant when we came back from our stay at La Maddalena. The service was ok. It seems that they want to serve you as quickly as possible. So that they can sell the table again. The food was not so good. - Pizza was bad. (But they asked me If I wanted a new one)... More

Me And my bf had an amazing dinner there! The gnocchi sardi main was just amazing! Portions are quite good but not huge! The local white wine we had along with the dinner was making our experience even better... Shame we had no space left in our bellies to try something from The dessert menu.... Definitely planning to go back... More

Sardinia is a beautiful island paradise with mountains, beaches, nice people and fantastic food. Ferdinando fits in the fantastic food category. During a week's stay in paradise, we visited Ferdinando multiple times for lunch and dinner. The whole family loved it and when given a choice on where to eat, Ferdinando was always at the top of the list. When... More

Ate here twice during our stay. Food was good, tasty and reasonably priced and the service was also good. We ate at lunchtime and the restaurant wasn't busy. Friendly staff and some spoke English much better than my non-existent Italian! We had pasta and pizza and can recommend it from our experience. Thanks guys!

I was quite disappointed when we came here for a meal out. All of our meals came out at separate times and they got one of the orders wrong. The members of staff apologised, but it didn't feel like a family meal as we weren't eating together. We came here once out of the 2 weeks and we didn't return.

Very busy so that's always a good sign ! Food was very very good and service was prompt and pleasant The setting is by the port so a great view of the boats in the harbour Prices are competitive and the wine choice is vast Overall a great place to eat and will definitely re-visit as thoroughly enjoyed the experience

Slightly pushy maître d' but food nice enough. Mixed seafood fresh pasta was good. Veal served on a slice of white bread was disappointing.

I was staying in Palau for a few days close by and ate hear twice. The first time the experience was a good one and worthy of returning but the second time we had a poor experience the exact opposite of the first time. On trip advisor I see there are mixed reviews and perhaps this is why. Food is... More
