I visited Da Giovannino again last week as this is one of my regular spots when I come on holiday to Sardinia. The food as always was outstanding and on this particular occasion I was really taken by the tuna tartar I had as a starter and the freshly made ravioli were to die for! The staff were very attentive... More

Very pricey. I am Spanish and used to pay this sort of price (around 95€ per person). Quality is very good, but service wasn't as expected, nothing wrong, just they left us waiting for the desserts menu and we jad to pour the wine ourselves (if your waitress do it for you it should be done ALWAYS). Amazing menu of... More

We went there on advise of a friend and were not disappointed ... I probably have eaten the best pasta ever and so did my 2yo ... We also had a tartar and a salad and really couldn't find something to complain about - great food quality. The only downside eventually ... some waiters could me a bit more enthusiastic... More

I went that restaurant just because of its high score and price. I hoped that if i would pay high in Porto Rotondo i could have the best. But i am telling you very sadly that, the kitchen of this place was very terrible. We ordered 4 plates from the a-la carte as starters. Whole was undelicious. Even food service... More

This is always a great spot for good food and wines in Porto Rotondo. Fresh products gently cooked to mantain the real flavours of the raw materials. A specific mention is to the ice creams. Absolutely amazing, probably the best I have tried in my life. Great!

My wife and I left this restaurant for last and we are glad we did. A very charming family run restaurant. Our waiter was also the owner and he made our night so much fun. The food was beautiful and the house made olive oil was the best I've ever had.

Lucky day. We went to Porto Rotondo on a rainy October day, when almost everything was closed. Not Da Giovannino! We were practically alone, got a warming welcome and the food was amazing (specially the spicy octopus we had as first course). It`s`not cheap, but it is worth it.

Went here with the family based on Trip Advisor recommendations. Very disappointed with overall experience. Felt like they couldn't get you in and out fast enough. Food expensive, pricey. Much better restaurants in the area than this! Not a great experience!
