For some seriously excellent Northern Sardinian cuisine, get away from the beaches and head for the hills. Il Muto di Gallura is as good as "agroturismo" gets and the setting among the soaring rocks outside Tempio Pausania just adds to the occasion. It's a set menu with unlimited red and white wine – so bring a designated driver. Also, a hearty appetite because you won't go away hungry. The wine is excellent as are the cured meats, cheeses, breads, pickles, pastas, goat, roast pork, pastries, tiramisu and grappa, all produced on the farm or nearby. In summer there's the added pleasure of the light fading behind the spectacular rocks over Aggius. At €35 a head it's an occasion, but worth every cent.

I stayed here when I was looking for a house in the village and returned a couple of years later with friends who were visiting.
The quality of the ingredients is peerless - I've since got to know the gentleman who picks the wild mushrooms for them - and if you're looking to sample traditional cooking you won't find better than this.
Make sure you're hungry when you visit though.
It may seem expensive but that's down to the seemingly endless number of courses rather than any desire to rip people off.
Not somewhere to stop off if you're just looking for a snack then.

If you really want to feel the Sardinian taste and tradition, this is the right place for you. It is located in a huge property where they grow their own vinyards, fruit trees and have their sheep and pigs farming.Everything you eat there is home made and the menu is already made for you. You only need to be very hungry so that you can appreciate each course (and they are many!!). For me the absolutely best is "zuppa sarda" (the literal translation is Sardinian soup but actually it is something more similar to a "lasagna" than a soup), a very typical and traditional dish. When make reservation I recommend you ask for a table on the terrace, where you have a beautiful view of the mountains around with the lights of Aggius on one side and Tempio Pausania on the other.

This is a fixed menu restaurant where the only choice you have to make is red or white wine.. Both are lovely as is the home made pasta. they only serve locally produced cuisine and ingredients. The quality of the food is fantastic as is the homely rustic surroundings with the open log fires.
Beware if you book dinner by avoiding breakfast and lunch as the amount of food they serve is immense and it would be sacrilege to leave any.

This was highly recommended in our rough guide and so we went out of our way to go here. We weren't disappointed overall and had a delicious dinner.

The place itself is pretty authentically rustic I think which old photos on the wall and agricultural paraphanelia dotted around the place. It is certainly better when others turn up and create a bit of atmosphere, at which point you can all look at each other and roll your eyes when more and more food comes out. You don't order; they just bring you what they've got, and apparently they usually have quite a lot as you certainly don't go hungry in this place.

The food is top-notch and is classic agri-turismo so a good way of tasting authentic local food and very drinkable local wine.

We thought this lived up to its excellent reputation.
