We noticed this restaurant just off the main road , then saw people leaving with huge takeaway pizza boxes so decided to give it a go. Don't be put off by the plastic roofing or the rustic decor, the pizzas and house wine are both fantastic value for money. Lots of locals, greeted warmly, indicate much return business. We ate there twice. Interestingly the music was English, 80's .
To find it, leave the city by the road with the railway station, go North for a couple of miles, and look for 2 phone shops nearly next to each other on the left. Via De Fabris is directly opposite Vodafone.

We visited this restaurant with the hope of experiencing a proper pizza, and that is what we got!

The menu is not in English, however the very helpful waiter was able to translate for us to make sure we got something we liked. They were happy to make changes to one of the pizza toppings to meet my husband's request.

We arrived fairly early (by Italian standards - about 8pm) and it really started to get busy around 8.30. The kitchen is visible from where we were sat and we were impressed by how hard the chef was working - he was literally running between topping pizzas and removing them from the oven. The restaurant also does takeaway pizza and that seemed to be a large part of their customer base. Due to our early arrival we received our food promptly and the service was very good.

Pizzas were very tasty and just what we needed. All in all I would say it is worth visiting if you are in Olbia and fancy some pizza.

We stumbled across this restaurant, just off the main road in northern Olbia and were very happy with our choice. Whilst the menu was not available in English, our helpful waiter was willing to translate and recommend dishes. We were looking for pizza tonight so settled for Margherita and a recommended seafood pizza. We were not disappointed as both were served quickly and were delicious. The seafood pizza was amazing, loaded with langoustines, octopus, shrimps and mussels, it was a beautiful picture. We finished the meal with panna cotta, which was just right. All in all a great meal with attentive service.

We had a family dinner recently at L'Antico Borgo in Olbia. This was my first visit to the restaurant; however, other family members have made it their favorite place in Olbia for pizza. The locale is warmly decorated with a rustic motif, having tables indoors and others out on a covered terrace situated along a side road.

We were a rather large group and not everyone was in the mood for pizza. L'Antico Borgo serves a nice selection of antipasti, seafood or meat pasta courses and main entrées. I had a pizza with sausage and onions which was very tasty. The pizza crust is very thin, the way I like it, and the pizzas are huge! I also had a nice cold draft of the Sardinian Ichnusa Beer.

Others enjoyed their meals. Particularly good was an octopus salad that was very fresh. Another guest enjoyed her horse steak (yes, that's right, horse!). There was also a menu section for children's size meals. Everyone ordered desserts, which while not homemade, were nicely served. Service was very friendly and attentive. We arrived around 8:30 p.m. on a Sunday evening and most of the tables were vacant. Locals from Olbia apparently eat late as the restaurant was completely full by the time we were done. Prices were very reasonable.

Having recently moved to Olbia we have visited L'Antico Borgo quite a few times now as it's just down the road and have always had a very warm reception from the owner, Paolo, and never been disappointed with either the pizza's or from the main menu. If you're not sure what to have, try the Boh! pizza, this comes with whatever the chef fancies at the time.

There is a covered seating area outside, but we have always sat inside. It is quite rustic inside and despite having a TV inside, it doesn't dominate the room like TV's in some Italian restaurants can do. Service is prompt and friendly.

Finally, after every meal, you get given a three tiered bottle, each tier contacting a digestif. Mirto, limoncello or grappa, the bottle is just left and you can help yourselves. Be careful though, it's homemade so it is very strong!

Highly recommended.
