They charge 2.50 for a coperto for one person. And then 2 euro for water (not unusual, but with the high coperto geesh!). The pasta was 8 euro...not bad. And wine 3 euro...you can do better. 15.50 for a plate of pasta and glass of wine. Go elsewhere.

What Claire had I liked.
The Mushroom rissoto as I call it was an excellent starter which my wife filled her up before having the next course.
Three courses and I had the same main which I though for the money was good.
Followed by creme caramel, fresh fruit or ice cream.
This wa s a 3 course meal for 15euros plus 2 cover charge and tax with a few drinks a total of 43.50.
We liked it so much we went the next night and the other 2 nights there we did not find anything better.
Service quick and excellent.

we went here on our last night on holiday and was really let down by the poor food served. i was looking forward to the risotto ai fungi that i had ordered and what came was a disgrace... rice and a few mushrooms mixed into some cream and that was that and for mains my steak was of very poor quality as was my partners, and she has ravioli to start which tasted like it was swimming in a sauce made of heinz tomato soup. What annoyed me the most is that when i said it wasnt good the waiter seemed slightly annoyed by this but you only had to look at it to see it was disgusting. on top of that it was our most expensive meal of the week and by far the worst. will never go back.

Cagliari is a strange place to visit as it makes little allowance for incoming tourists : for example there is no visible Tourist Office and no "What's on in Cagliari" publication available when we visited in the height of summer. It is a working port and so the area around the marina in Via Roma has a bus depot but , strangely, no water front bars and cafes. The food in Cagliari is adequate,, without being exceptional at all the trattoria and restaurants we sampled.

La Gobbette is located in a quaint back street in the old quarter where most night life is to be found, with tables set out in the narrow cobbled passage. The inside of the restaurant looked interesting if one were there in winter. The bathrooms were OK.

The fixed price menus were 15 and 23 euros and both contained local seafood specialities including sea urchins. The cooking was traditinal Italian and the portions were generous even if the fare was not as appetising as one usually finds in Italy and with so much fresh seafood avaialble. The mozzarella and tomato was unappetising sadly- now how can you not get that right I ask you ?
