Do not go here expecting an ordinary restaurant. It is not. It is, in effect, an excellent delicatessen which has morphed into a restaurant by setting about 70 covers in the pedestrian street outside. I think there only are about three or four small tables inside. We ate outside four or five times this summer. It is not haute cuisine but the food is home prepared and cooked, and delicious. It is also really good value, a rarity in this part of the world. We had a bottle of wine there for 15 Euros which we had paid 25 Euros for in La Maddelena. Mainly great fish, mussels and pasta but I can also highly recommend the Tagliata, a sliced steak. The staff are fun and work really hard. Try and book or turn up early, or be prepared to queue, as many do every evening. A great atmosphere and a really good fun place to eat.

My husband and I went looking for this restaurant on our first evening in Cannigione in view of the trip advisor reviews. How disappointing! We both ordered the mixed grilled fish which turned out to be loads of very rubbery calamari, 5 very small, overcooked shrimps and what I think was some equally rubbery squid. The roast potatoes were small cubes which had been very much overcooked and actually tasted like re-heats. I can't remember much about the salad other than it was not very exciting. To add insult to injury, everything was served on or in plastic including the wine. All in all it was a very bad experience and not particularly inexpensive.

You could really walk past this place, hidden behind the church, and dismiss it as a cafe. Despite the plastic plates & cups (no wine glasses but good wine!), this was our favourite eating place in Cannigione. The service is excellent and the food is better - fabulous Fishermans Mussels, mixed seafood & grilled meats. All served very simply but the best quality ingredients.

This is nothing more than a glorified fish and chip restaurant. Beware even if you book you can find yourself sitting outside in the street. Apart from one waitress, the staff were surly and unhelpful. The food was hit and miss. The seafood risotto and the fregola were good, but much of the rest was indifferent, and the squid was tough. It was however reasonably priced.
