“Fallen standards”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

We used to love eating here but when we returned to Alghero this year we were very disappointed. Food is still ok but staff ( not new same for last few years) were just downright rude this time, service very sloppy. This place as I said before was greg and has potential but waiters/ staff are letting them down.

“Pizza? Better impossible”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

The "pizza al metro", or pizza by meters, is the specialty of Les Arenes, one of the best pizzas in the world. You have to try the 5 chesse pizza which has the tipical sardegna's chesse, pecorino, wich is made of "pecora", sheep. Just try half a meter and you'll find yourself having a whole meter for yourself... You bet? :)

“Great pizza, poor service”
Reviewed June 6, 2010

This restaurant was close to our hotel, and we ate there twice. The first time we had sea bream and a steak, and the second time shared one of their pizzas. These are served by the metre (or half-metre for couples!), with a good choice of toppings from which you can choose several per pizza. We enjoyed the first meal, but the pizza was outstanding.

On the downside though, the service on both occasions was fairly poor. The staff were friendly and helpful, but run off their feet. While we got our main course in good time, on the first occasion we decided to leave after sitting with the dessert menu in front of us for 30 mins. After failing to catch anyone's eye, we followed the example of the locals, and went to the cash desk to pay, where they miscalculated our bill (luckily in our favour!) The second time, our waiter spent all his time talking to an Italian family at a table in the back of the room, and again we had trouble finding anyone to take our money. Hopefully they'll get some more staff in as the season picks up, because it is a shame that the good food is let down by the poor service.

“Easily one of the best pizza places I've...”
Reviewed May 31, 2010

Easily one of the best pizza places I've ever been to. Great buzz, excellent for couples and large groups. This is no nonsense pizza by the meter. Yep, about 30 types to chose from. Staff always super nice. Highly recommended.
