Description: Ristorante storico aperto e gestito dalla stessa famiglia dal 1921, un locale rustico ed elegante ricavato dagli antichi magazzini del sale, travi in ginepro e mattoni a vista oltre ad antichi pezzi del mondo agricolo sardo son caratteristici di questo locale. Ad alcuni piatti della cucina tradizionale sarda si affiancano diversi piatti stagionali e di crudo, proposti dal giovane Chef Filippo Mundula. Interessante anche la cantina a vista ( dietro ad un antico portone in legno risalente ad un granaio dell' 800 ) lista vini ampia con diverse etichette pregiate, oltre ai classici vini famosi isolani come il Turriga presente in carta dall'annata '93, un attenta selezione di etichette pregiate che spaziano dai Borgogna 1er Cru agli Champagne ai grandi vini Toscani e Piemontesi a prezzi da enoteca, interessante anche la selezione di vini al calice. Probabilmente la cosa piu bella del Ristorante Italia e la vetrina del pesce da dove poter scegliere il pescato fresco del giorno, oltre all'acquario dei crostacei all'ingresso. Anche l'aperitivo di benvunuto e degno di nota.

We really loved this restaurant. When the proprietor realised we were interested in wine he discussed his wine list at length and at the end of the meal showed us his cellar. The staff while capable of speaking good English were very willing to indulge my desire to practice my Italian. Food and wine were very very good.
A nice touch is that as soon as you walk in, before even asking if you have booked, you are given a glass of prosecco.

This was one of the places that we tried in the streets behind the waterfront at Cagliari, where we were staying. Unfortunately it was one of the less impressive.

Good morning

Unfortunately, some people prefer tourist and cheap place. Ristorante Italia is something different but some times, this kind of custumer come to us and don't understend what mean quality food and service and don't know the difference between a good restaurant and a tourist trap. For us is very difficult have a good review whit this kind of custumer.

Thanks

On the recommendation of our B&B owner, we ate here on our last night of a seven night tour of Sardinia and though not nearly as good as Antica Cagliari, it was pretty decent. Initially we sat outside and were provided with a complimentary glass of Prosecco but we were soon surrounded by smokers so moved inside and were surprised by how old fashioned the place was. It was pretty quiet with only a few tables occupied, predominately by locals rather than tourists. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was pretty good. We had two courses, two side dishes and two mains, with a bottle of wine and a bottle of water. The bill came to Euro 93.50 but we got a 10% discount by booking through our B&B owner, which wiped out the 10% service charge!

Here I can recommend to order a "whole menu" for one person and enjoy in two. The food is good. The service is a bit excessive, since they will want to change your cutlery every dish (like 6). Here you will spend around 30 euro each, but it will be worth it. The only negative aspect is the air conditioning which is pointed onto the people. So people often had to move to escape from the blow.
