“One of my Iglesias favorites”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

The restaurant scene in old town (centro storico) of Iglesias is somewhat lacking. Villa di Chiesa is among the best ones I visited. They serve good pizza with a long list of pizzas to select from and also "regular" Italian food, ie. not just a pizzeria.

I really liked the Bresaola with lemon and cheese (pecorino?) on the antipasti -section. One word of caution: the portions are not small! I tried to eat trough 3-course dinner (Antipasti, primi, secondi) but was unable to! The bresaola portion was quite generous, the pasta was also quite big. Even though I tactically left 1/3 of the pasta untouched, I could not finnish all of the pesce spada portion I had as my secondi piatti. They all were delicious.

If you want to go trough 3-course dinner, _share_ the antipasti with 2 or 3 persons.
I also recommend Creme Catalan listed on the dolci section.

Some waiters speak quite much English, credit cards accepted.

“Lovely dinner in Iglesias”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012

I spent a couple of hours in Iglesias on a business trip and I was taken to this excellent restaurant. We had two wonderful pasta dishes ( caserecce with wild asparagus and baby clams and green tagliatelle with artichokes and guanciale), tagliata with rucola and first class frittura di pesce. It was all washed down with lots of good red wine (local).
We had room for Seadas with honey as pudding served with a nice generous drop of home made (made by the owner's mother) Mirto. I was so pleased and satisfied! When you are in this part of the world, you must go!

“very nice and good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2011

we enjoyed a simple but plaisant dinner with very good food.
The waiters spoke French and English (which was rare).
It was fun to see the kitchen.
Pastas and meat were excellent.
Only the desert was not good.
And the plaza is very nice with many small streets to walk in.
