“We were there twice during our short visit!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

It is a romantic place with wonderful food and smiley staff.

I guess you should make a reservation for Friday or Saturday dinner.

The food was very very nice and delicious. I do recommend the fish, especially the ones in "salt rock". Lovely desserts, the best tiramisu I have ever had.

The view is port with Tavolara island, pure romance...

Will definitely come back when again in Sardegna.

“Great experience”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

We found this lovely place by accident, and loved it. You can eat cheaply with basic pasta with ragu, or very much more expensively, but always very well and with attentive and helpful waiters and charming owner. We cannot recommend it enough - do try it if you are in the area

“Food and and service match the great location”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

We stopped here for a long and lazy lunch after getting back off the boat from Isola Tavolara. I must confess that we were slightly lazy and despite the relatively high prices decided to eat here in the obvious location rather than exploring Porto San Paolo to try and find something more economical away from the sea front.
Fortunately, rather than simply milking the location to exploit tourists, the restaurant is of a really good standard. The waiting staff are polite, friendly and welcoming. The food is excellent. I'm sure you are paying a bit extra for the location, but to be honest I don't mind when the overall experience is as good as this.
