We went there after being recommended it by our B&B owner stefano. They did not let us down! The food was great, whatever you do just go along with what they tell you to have, they know best! We had a selection of six starters, all were delicious and was very cool to try some different things, we had some nice house wine and then moved onto pasta. This again was great, my girlfriend had he better deal with seafood pasta which was delicious! The waiter was very friendly to us, spoke good English and we enjoyed the local atmosphere inside. We would never of chosen this place from the outside, but after trying it I cannot recommend it enough! Must go, but just go relaxed and go along with whatever the waiter says. That's all part of the fun!

We stopped off here one Saturday for lunch. What looks very small from the outside is actually quite spacious inside, with an atmosphere which we found really warm. We started with a mix of antipasti which was enough to fill us but then there were two courses to follow. including pasta with bottarga, the best I've ever had. We finished with coffees and some Mirto... which meant us being handed a bottle and two glasses from the freezer. Help yourself !!!!
Price was right too. Great experience, Highly recommended.

There isnt much that needs to be said about this trattoria; the food is lovely, the service a bit hectic and casual but good, the place is a proper trattoria style and the price is good. We went there three years early on a previous trip to cagliari on a recommendation of a friend from cagliari...we loved it then and probably even more this time!!

This place was recommended by Rick Stein as being somewhere you can eat "real" Sardinian food. It's very busy with long tables and full of people and very noisy. So far so good. When we sat down the waiter, who had an attitude, came over and said did we want a selection of antipasti and wine. Didn't offer us the menu. He brought some very unremarkable starters that tasted like tinned tuna, some mussels so over salted I couldn't eat them and some courgette flowers in a hard rubbery batter. He plonked down a litre of house white without asking how much we wanted. After the starters he came back and said airily "do you want some spaghetti with clams" like it was the only option. At this point I asked for the menu (in Italian) and he allowed us to see it. I then realised the menu had many more interesting options for antipasti - however unsure if these were even available as most of the diners seemed to be eating the same thing. We ordered spaghetti with bottarga which was literally pasta with about 2 tablespoons of the dry bottarga on top. Inedible again. This place may have been good 40 years ago but we were very disappointed. Worst meal of the week and a waste of €50.
