There is an attitude problem at this hotel. The elder daughter who fronts the Albergo is combative and inclined to argue. We arrived down to breakfast on our last day ten minutes early in order to pay our bill before the other guests arrived, as we had an airport deadline to meet. We were told we had arrived too early and, in spite of our explanation, told to leave immediately. Our room was small and pokey and remote. Another couple that we met at dinner the previous evening said that they had been moved to a remote location also, because they found that their room in the main hotel, with only a clerestory window, was claustrophobic. Despite being asked about dietary requirements by the same daughter and being told that I needed to avoid red meat, this seemed to pose a problem for the kitchen, who offered instead a fried egg. When I declined this offer I was instead served cheese on toast for my main course meal. Parking is a nightmare!

Room Tip: Frankly, I would avoid this Albergo Diffuso altogether. I cannot speak for the other rooms, although there was nothing that we saw to indicate that there was anything any better than that I have described

If you're travelling around the Oristano region make sure you stop for dinner and spend the night in this charming Relais. This old family mansion was transformed into a small 12 room hotel, giving the feel & touch of a friend's home. The rooms are causy, clean and well equipped (tub a bit small!!) the beds are old fashioned and very confy. Dinner. Well, that's an experience. Every evening the menu changes and EVERYTHING is fresh. The Antipasti a are local and the pastas and main courses are usually exquisite (very good meats). The deserts are at the same level and so is the wine list. The service is VERY efficient and explains origin and engredients of every dish. Breakfast: a little feast in it's own, with a good selections of salty and sweet goodies. Do not miss this place.

It's hard to know where to begin in describing how wonderful this place is. We could tell you that the service is excellent (it is) or that the rooms are clean (they are), but what makes this place special is almost ineffable. From the moment we arrived, it felt as if we had become privy to some kind of secret.

Staying here was the highlight of our two week honeymoon in Italy and Sardinia. The hotel is spread across a few buildings in the center of this medieval village, but the central home has remained in the owner's family for five generations. You can feel the history as you walk up the staircase (you can see the indentation of a million footsteps). Our room was comfortable and overlooked a garden. But while the house is lovely and the accommodations were everything we needed to relax and sleep well, the draw of Antica Dimora del Gruccione is undoubtedly the food.

We dined each night under the apple tree in the garden, where the chef Roberto prepared a multi-course dinner entirely from locally sourced ingredients, and Lucilla gave us excellent wine suggestions and talked with us at length about the hotel, food, and traveling in the US. (Locavores take note: Roberto is the real thing. He goes out in the mornings to nearby farms and makes that evening's dinner with whatever he finds - the food could not possibly be fresher and more seasonal.) Among many courses our first night, the highlights for us were the most perfectly delicate zucchini fritters, fresh figs with pecorino, Sardinian durum wheat pasta with local beef, and lemon cream with bee pollen. On our second night, we had, among other things, a salad with quail eggs, sheep's milk cheese and anchovies, a wonderful risotto, and local beef with fennel and black peppercorns. Nothing disappointed in the least. After dinner, we were treated to homemade apertifs, like Roberto's recipes for mirto and absinthe with wild mint.

If you want to stay in accommodations that are utterly unique, eat food that borders on the transcendent, and meet some of the most delightful hosts imaginable - we recommend Antica Dimora del Gruccione.

We loved our stay here. We had the incredible dinner three nights in a row and hardly saw the same type of dish twice. Roberto and Lucilla made us feel special in the best, kindest way. Food is a slow experience here, leaving time for each locally grown dish to be truly savoured. We ate for over 3 hours every evening and never felt stuffed. Great wine recommendations made for a perfect culinary experience. The rooms and the hotel all have oodles of character. For us, this was perfection.

This hotel is set in the somewhat sleepy but beautiful town of Santu Lussurgiu. It's a very nice place to relax (with a beautiful green shady garden). The rooms are beautufully designed, comfortably (with AC) and clean. But the real prize is chef Roberto Fore who cooks dinner for the guests every night. All plates are culinary and honest Sardinian gems, with a wine card that contains the best of Sardinian wines. Roberto cooks with passion and skill (his desserts are heavenly) and shares his enthousiasm for local food. I had the best suckling pig I've ever eaten (or will eat probably). And Roberto, thanks again for that 2005 Surreau!
