Love this place and do go every time I am in Castelsardo for my holiday. Food is unpretentious but great and Claudio, the owner, is a true character and a fantastic host....just don't take him too seriously, he likes a joke or two!!! :) His wife Anna is lovely and so is Aurora, their little daughter. Just absolutely love it!!!... More

I was there for dinner with wife, the restaurant is in one of the side streets and for Italian standards we were quite early 19:00 so we were only gusts at time. Service /probably the owners/ is super nice and helpful. We ate pizza /one of the best in my life/ and gnocchi Sarda. everything was excellent and at very... More

My husband and I decided to try this place for lunch rather than trek into town, as we have found in Italy that sometimes the best food is actually outside of the town center. We were excited about the wine and bread, but found it odd that the owner kept wanting to speak to us in a mix of Spanish/Italian/English... More

We went here on a recommendation and were not disappointed. The MD is quite a character and his wife who also serves is charming. We had a complementary glass of pink fizz on arrival and were seated immediately (we had booked). Local breads were brought and our order taken. The host speaks good English and lived a bit of banter!... More

In a small side street near the bottom of the town Sa Panada, where linen serviettes are folded like little shirtsi s a true local find, we visited this restaurant on a friends recommendation and we were not disappointed! after enjoying many pizzas in Castlesardo it was unanimous that this was the best pizza we had in the 9 days...

I've eaten one of the best pizzas in Sardinia in this place. Try the "fresca" (if I remember well), with Parma ham, grana, ruccula and cherry tomatoes. The venue is neither fancy nor ambitious in the inside, but rather a homely-looking dining room with a big TV. The owner might seem a bit rough or arrogant sometimes, but he's a... More

I have eaten many pizzas in my life, but none was as good as at Sa Panada. I have to admit that we came back 2 more times during our stay in Castelsardo. The owner is just incredibly friendly, the atmosphere is authentically Italian. Really a great pizzeria!

Tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms and their homemade bread - both to die for ! :) Nice staff. They doesn't serve pizza during the day.

If you like being treated as a second-class citizen then certainly attend this restaurant they treat the locals completely differently to any tourists that visit. The pizza was okay but we were one of only three tables and were completely ignored because we didn't speak Italian. This restaurant has huge potential but due to the managers arrogance and lack of... More
