I finished my bike ride here from Ballao and it was an incredible meal. The server has charming and kind enough to let me sit outside to be able to watch my bike. The squid ink pasta with burrata was incredible - amongst the best...pastas I have eaten. The carpaccio was good but not incredible. But the pasta was incredible. Great and friendly service and I was happy I got to celebrate my day with an amazing meal here. I would say a must for the food, view and charm.More

We ate here 2 nights which says a lot about the quality of the food! The first night we did the traditional Italian dishes and the second, we did the pizza - both were faultless and well priced. Would recommend to anybody visiting the area

On our second night in this restaurant we ordered calamari which were very hard to chew, so we returned the whole plate and ordered another dish. I understand this can happen and I wouldn’t write a bad review for that reason. The second dish was...a local pasta and it was good. It was the personal attitude of the manager which surprised us: first we were charged for the returned full plate of calamari, and then argued with us by bringing returned plate and waveing those calamari in front of us saying they are excellent. Very unproffesional. I guess that “customer is always right” is not their way of doing bussiness. Once the manager understood, that you cant convince a customer the dish is amazing if they dont feel that as well, he murmored something in italian and stepped away. After some dilema what is going on, we ended up paying for what we ate and that was that. A sad experince, not for the food, just for the one member of the staff.More

Booking was easy via fb messenger and we were greeted and seated on arrival. The restaurant is bigger than it looks from the outside and very pleasant. The food portions are large . It is definitely possible to share a starter. But we didn’t. The...pizzas were amazing and all reasonably priced. It was very busy for a Tuesday evening but can highly recommend. The Sardinian wine was also very good. Unfortunately we do not speak Italian but the staff did their best to understand us. ThankyouMore

Very popular restaurant in an elevated position in the residential area of Porto Frailis. Although not much of a presence from the road, it's certainly one place where it really is worthwhile to make a reservation beforehand. We visited twice; the first time we phoned...a few hours earlier and the second time it was on the off chance. On both occasions it was made quite clear that we could use the indoor area allocated for pizzas but there was no way that we would get on the terrace to enjoy the a la carte menu. Fair enough; both times we joined the queue to get in, and then watched people being turned away whilst we waited. Anyway, once seated we rather enjoyed this place. The dedicated pizza area is relatively comfortable and is the buffer between the kitchen and the terrace so there's always plenty of activity with staff scuttling back and forth with a variety of dishes. I'm not a big pizza fan, but the QR-coded menu has plenty of interesting variations and as my preference for a pizza base is doughy with puffy edges, and that is exactly what this place does, I was quite happy. My choice for the first visit wasn't overly successful. The mix of mozzarella, goat's cheese and porcini cream needed the bacon that was indicated, and definitely not the several strips of wafer-thin see-through rind with no meat whatsoever. However, on my second visit I chose a mix of mozzarella, apple, gorgonzola and walnuts and this, on a perfect base, was one excellent pizza. There are some interesting desserts residing in a cold cabinet by the side of the room so you can inspect then select. I wasn't disappointed with the chocolate and cream confection that I chose on the second occasion. The wine list is adequate with a good price range and it's easy to find something economic and highly drinkable. We liked the cheerful and helpful staff, and the young ladies on our second visit were particularly jolly. We'll be back in Arbatax again next year and I'll be e-mailing my reservation well in advance!More

Food was not special. Waiters were impolite. We did’t feel like guest we felt like another people who just have to pay. We were two times in this restuarant and every time it was the same. On our second time we order salad with pinaple,...chery tomatoes and shrimps and We got half of pinaple with 4 shrimps and no tomatoes. Definitley it didn’t look like a salad more like dessert. We told the waiter that the „salad” is not the dish which was described in the menu. I got the respond that I have to come back and they will do better. We also orderd pizza which was poor and the dough was rubbery. The restuarant is not a place to sit, relax and eat dinner with nice atmosphere. I would say it is more to eat fast an exit.More
