“they don't have a standard”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2012

I think they are living on their reputation. unfortunately there is not continuity: sometimes food is good and various (there is not menu), sometimes is poor in quantity and quality. Even in their best days pasta is overcooked. and the bill is the same. service il always fast and attentive.

“There is no menu, but who cares? It was excellent local fare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2011

Upon recommendation from some local Sardinians we are working with we had dinner at 4 Mori on a Friday nite. Had the cab not stopped right in front of the door I doubt we would have found the place as it's down a narrow street and the door is recessed into the side of a building. We had called ahead for 8:30 reservations and arrived right on time and were seated immediately. Post it note on the table said "Inglese x 3" meaning the person who called in for the reservations spoke English. I read another review here by someone who was taken back by their similar note and wonder to myself "who cares?". As soon as we sat down 10 appetizers hit the table without ordering consisting of octopus, mussels, clams, fried mixed seafood, calamari, escargot, tuna, etc. Everything was very authentic and excellent tasting. The primi patti was linguine with clams and mussels along with linguine with lobster. For the second course had fillet of fish in lemon butter wine sauce. Dessert was small pastries along with coffee. Remember, there was no menu to choose from, only a recital of the menu from the wait staff. I'm sure they cook whatever they can but fresh that day down at the Cagliari sea port.

I'm not sure where some of the other reviewers ate but they didn't eat here if they didn't find some very good food. Anywhere the locals will eat is typically a place I like to eat at when traveling. There were plenty of locals there as well. We found no problems with the service, owner or the wait staff.

In terms of value the bill was $150 Euro for the three of us which included all the food, 2 bottles and half a carafe of wine along with espresso and Zibibbo.

“Be4 you go to 4 Mori read this - and then go!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2009

If you want to try sardinian cuisine go to 4 Mori. But be warned you have to like surprises, because you want be able to choose your starters and dependind on the day, you'll have around 10 startersover your table. At the 4 Mori you can have those starters only (€ 20/ per person)-The chef or the waiter comes to ypur table after you finish the starters and then he tells you what´s on the list that day as secondo piato. That´s when you may
choose to order a second plate. Normally pasta (with lobster (aragosta) or clams (vongoli) etc)
It is a good restaurant BUT you have to be decided to put yourself in the hands of the chef and just trust the house' experience. I enjoyed it very much and will certainly be back!
