“EXTRAORDINARY!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

Extraordinary! A fantastic restaurant in the city center of Cagliari, in front of the port. Delicious food, typical dishes and excellent prizes. A family business, medium restaurant with a terrasse with views to the sea. I highly recommend the "Menu Turistic" which includes an entrance, a course and accompainment (salad or French fries). You can choose between the most typical Sardinian dishes. Excellent quality, wonderful atmosphere and decoration and abundant quantity for only 15 euros. Between all the "trattorie" of Via Sardegna (where are all the restaurants), this is undoubtly the best one!

“Good food, but more rose sellers than you could shake a stick at”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

We had a satisfying lunch here which started with a splendid Sardinian antipasti, followed by two well-presented pasta dishes and then Sardinian pastry desserts with honey, all washed down with a half carafe of cheap but excellent local white wine. The attentive service was topped by the number of times that we were asked if we wanted to buy a rose, I think it was a different person asking each time, but I lost track after the first four.

“average cuisine”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2012

cold atmosphere (waiters and room temperature) even service was efficient. plates were quite cold. fried potatoes were drawn in sweet (!) oil. but try the potato dumplings "culurgiones".
price level average, but still a bit too high for what you get. for shure better opportunities in the area available.
