We had the pleasure to dine twice at the Pesce d'oro. We particularly enjoyed the tunafish carpaccio bit also of course the other local fish dishes. The staff was most attentive and efficient

One of the things I always look forward to when going to Italy is the pizza. So when I was recommended this restaurant has one of the best pizzerias I couldn't want to try it. I had already visited Alghero a couple of times previously and had eaten excellent pizza at Poco Loco, El Putal and Al Vecchio Mulino to name a few. But we seriously received the worst pizza we had ever eaten. The main problem was that the crust was so soggy because they had tried to put way too many toppings on it and toppings were not at all appetizing. I've never left behind pizza at a restaurant in Italy before but this time we ate a fourth of the pizzas and asked for a box, which we ended up throwing in the trash later. Maybe they have better seafood than pizza but I was extremely disappointed and won't be going back.

The restaurant staff accepted a reservation for a specific table but then when we got there the table we had reserved was occupied by others. The main course we ordered (seabass in salt crust) was not catch of the day (nor of the day before ...). It was well cooked, however for the price asked we should have definitely been served catch of the day, not what we got. All in all, not a place to recommend.

It's a quiet and pretty restaurant with the middle range prices and not very high tips (2 euro). We ate the squids (very tasty and soft!), prawns and mixed grill fish two weeks ago. The waiters are friendly, fast and helpful, nice design of the space and pretty bathroom. The bill was about 34 euro with 2 dishes and 1-2 home white vine per two persons. Also they have 2 areas - inside and outside, but in the middle of the day it is better to hide under the shadow inside. It suits for the family as well as for the company of friends or romantic dinner.

Il Pesce d'Oro is a quite well known Restaurant in l'Alghero. We went there in low season, so wasn't necessary to book a table, although the restaurant was pretty full. Service is young and attentive. Food is excellent: fresh ingredients, traditional cuisine, excellent flavour and very good price. We went one night and had a seafood soup (the soup with more seafood ever!) and sardinian special pasta with aubergine and shrimps. Both dishes were excellent. We liked it so much we went again next day for lunch and opted for a closed menu which was excellent. We didn't have pizza but looking at other tables they seemed yummy. With no doubt if you want well-cooked traditional cuisine at a reasonable price in a pleasing setting this is your restaurant.
