“Disappointing experience”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Service was very poor and slow. Pizzas which we ordered wasnt good at all. The one with sea food looked like if they cooked little sea monsters in separate pan and just chucked on pizza other pizza had olives with stones.
We also asked waiter if we could replace one item on pizza and the answer which we got was stick to the menu.
We ordered dessert but after 30 min we had to reorder it again. After around 45 min of waiting we lost patience and decided to leave and make the payment. Then we saw waiter coming with dessert to our table but after he realized we are not there he brought dessert to us to the till.
For such a busy restaurant this is very poor service!
If i visit Stintino again will definitely not go for dinner to this restaurant again.

“Nice place, acceptable food - why this pressure?”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

During our stay in Stintino we had dinner twice at this place.
Once outside, once we sat inside. If you want to have a nice place outside reservation is recommended. Inside usually you will find a spot without reservation.
The food is of good quality however not excellent. On the other hand the prices are rather high. With four people of which two low- appetite kids we never paid less than 90€.
The first time we were there we really got irritated about the waitress making pressure to increase the food order. Really unpleasant and disturbing. Then again, just as normal in Stintino, the tourists are there to be milked! Customer fidelity is not an objective. The tourists will come year after year anyways. Actually quite a sad but obvious strategy.
Btw avoid the frittura! Mine was full of polipo which was hard like rubber. I left it all on the plate. As the waiter asked me I told him what was wrong. He said "I will advise the kitchen". That was it. No reduction or reaction whatsoever.

We would not go there again.

“Good food, not rude but bad and very slow service”
Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

We waited for 1 hour the appetizers. And We asked twice for the water, wine and bread!!!
However the food, a grilled mix fish plate, was very good!

“Overpriced and rude owners, run away!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

The location is wonderful but the food is really simple and so OVERPRICED. We had 2 grilled fish for 50 euros and they were dry, with antipasti it was about 70 euros...The boss talk to the waiters like if they were their slaves, they are so rude. This is typically the kind of place you want to avoid when you are on holidays.

“Good quality and low price”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

Seafood restaurant and pizzeria with a very nice sea view. Good service. Average to low prices (considering that you are having seafood: be careful while making your order because portions are generous). Walking distance from the park hotel asinara and cala lupo. is a must to book in advance for dinner (very popular family restaurant).
