“Awful experience! Stay away from this place!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2011

I had dinner here in July 2011 with my partner. The food was ok but overpriced: we both had average-quality tuna tagliata (slices of tuna) which cost us 16 euros each, then we had average-quality house wine and some water. The grand total was 47 euros because, according to the owner, we had to pay as well for some kind of local tax...
Let's now say something about Cinzia, the owner. We were having a stroll in Sant'Antioco to look for a restaurant and when we stopped in front of her restaurant we were literally blocked by two of her waitresses who would have dragged us to the table had we not asked for a menu to read before making a decision. Then the unbelievable happened: a family of four sat a table close to ours asking for pizza cooked in a wood-fired brick oven and the waitress honestly said they didn't have it, so the family decided to go somewhere else. At that point Cinzia, the owner, said to the waitress: 'Why did you tell them we don't have a wood-fired brick oven! They don't know whether we have it or not!'. She scolded her waitress in front of us for being honest as she had previously scolded her because we hadn't ordered any appetizer. To cut a long story short, we ate our food as quickly as possible, had no coffee or liquor and run away from there!!!
