We walked by La Saletta the night before we actually ate there, hoping we might could get in when we saw an empty table. Unfortunately it was after 10pm and they weren't taking any more customers but we were able to make reservations for the following night. We chose to order the set menu after asking the price (€25 per person). This included a half-liter of the house red wine, an array of starters, their wonderful and warm fresh flatbread which is drizzled in olive oil, your choice of 2 pastas, and 2 main dishes followed by espresso and a digestive. The starters were excellent, everything from oven-baked mozzarella to fresh ricotta with honey on the side, just to name a couple. Both of the pastas were excellent but we should have ended the food portion of the meal there because the main dishes just weren't to our liking. We had ordered the wild boar and lamb and I can't say I'll be rushing back to try either of them again. We left most of ours behind as it just didn't taste very good or very much at all. There wasn't a whole lot of meat on either of them. One thing that wasn't included but that I opted to try was the dessert, which was a type of custard pie with the tiniest hint of chocolate and cinnamon. It wasn't sensational but it was very good and had that perfect home-made pie crust. The house wine was excellent and only €2.50 for half a liter.
As far as the service goes, one of the waitresses was very good and as others have mentioned they do not speak much english at all, but I don't really expect them to either. The only other downside after the meat dishes was having to wait a very long time for our bill. At this point there were no other people left in the restaurant and we could see at least 3 of the staff through the open kitchen window, so they knew we were just sitting there. Finally we had to wave one of them down to get them to come out. Another thing to point out was the extremely cheesy video channel they had blaring on the tv the entire two hours we were there. It was pretty annoying (funny for the first 10 minutes though) and I didn't see how it fit in with the typical sardinian cuisine.
So while I would definitely go back to this restaurant to eat their starters and pasta again, I would absolutely skip the meat dishes and look for a table in the non-tv room.
