We got this restaurant on recommendation and we read the reviews here on TripAdvisor but we were really disappointed. The food wasn't at all good and the staff wasn't that friendly.

Son dispiaciuto che non vi siate trovati bene purtroppo non capisco cosa visto che non lo specificate..ho solo un sospetto forse siete quella coppia che ha fatto il bis di formaggera e vi si è fatto notare che non era carino mangiarlo a cucchiaiate .forse non siete voi!

When you have had enough Sauce Maltaise and Magrets de Canard, you may reach the point where you long for that honest-to-god, grand-mother prepared meal, where no surprise awaits you, but a reawakening of the simple pleasures of your youth, in your discovery of gastronomy.
La Gallurese fits the bill perfectly. The owner greeted us by mentioning his wild boar in Cannonau and olives (duly ordered): perfectly cooked and wed to a magically compatible side of beans and onions. Of course, house wine.

Do not be frightened by the humble look of the restaurant. This is original and honest food. We recommend that you try the Pecora (sheep stew).

Despite the recent mixed reviews, my wife, 5 year old daughter and myself had a great 2 hour lunch here.

Genuine Gallura food at its hearty best with great service. Our waiter spoke excellent English due his time working in Liverpool in the U.K. The number of locals frequenting this restaurant spoke volumes to us.

We could not have been made more welcome and left this great traditional restaurant full to the brim.

A recommend for couples, friends and families.

Despite the many excellent reviews, our experience was the complete opposite. The food was served in large portions, but either tasteless or very greasy. We ended up leaving at least half the food despite being still hungry. Clearly riding on recommendations by guide books, the quality must have deteriorated and I would strongly recommend avoiding until they address the quality of their food.

Mi dispiace non vi siate trovati bene ma penso non sia cosa insolita per voi!!è difficile giudicare un piatto senza quasi toccarlo figuriamoci definirlo terribile con criterio .altri clienti che hanno preso le vostre identiche cose erano entusiasti ,a chi devo credere?? Per carità non pretendo di soddisfare tutti ,ma chi conosce la cucina gallurese si !
