From the moment you step into this restaurant there exudes a confidence about the the food and service you will be getting. All the staff give you a warm greeting, the restaurant is impeccably laid out, it is cosy and has a cave-like quality with lots of stone. And it delivers! The excellent waiter, Anderson, recommended a delightful west coast... More

My son and I were visiting for one night and we were referred to this restaurant by our hotel. Loved the classy yet 'old cellar' decor and despite our lack of 'Italian' the staff made us feel welcome, explaining menu choices and making recommendations. Both dishes were classic Sardinian and superb. Highly recommended.

This was part of a group meal for a coach load of people and was billed as a Seafood Experience. Greeted by staff and welcomed in and sat at trestle tables in old cellar - tables set beautifully and ambiance great. Staff doing their best to feed everyone as the place was packed. We didn't really realise how much fish... More

There was some confusion with the booking, our hotel had booked for one night, they had us down for another night, but they soon managed to sort the tables out, and in fact, I think we ended up with the best table in the house! They took our order, drinks turned up quickly and we started relaxing into our night.... More

We just arrived in town and our host at B&B recommended this restaurant for dinner. It was 9pm and we had no reservation. We asked at the door if they had a free table and they were able to seat us after about 15 mins. THEN, we waited and waited and finally ordered. Then we waited and waited and finally... More

Diners need to book into this popular restaurant - they have a few covers outside but most are inside an atmospheric cellar-like. Very typical Sardinian menus with plenty of fresh fish.

This restaurant really disappointed. They were even out of potatoes at an early seating. Steak was ordered medium well and came to the table cold and blue for one person. Many, many better choices available.
