Local had nice/rustic ambience, although it did lacked air in the beginning, AC was off. Service is a wild card, owner was the only one who took orders, there was a big problem with waiters who did not know who to serve and when to do it. Not sure if it's constantly like this. Food is local, good introduction to... More

We were brought to the restaurant by friends who live in Cagliari while visiting the island so we could experience the typical food of Sardinia. We truly enjoyed our meal here and felt like we had an authentic experience. There were 6 of us dining and we were given course after course of food for I believe 30 Euros/person, which... More

Had a fantastic meal in this intimate little restaurant. Opted for the taster menu, a perfect little combination of everything. The cold meats and cheeses get the taste buds going, followed by local ravioli and then a perfectly crisp cooked pig. Food was fantastic followed by even better service and was very good value for money. Waiters were very friendly... More

Came here early (830p) and were the only guests for at least an hour. Nevertheless, we got a prix fixe option that began with traditional Sardinian flatbread and some condiments, followed by amazing charcuterie, and topped off with roast pork with the most crisp skin I've had. Throw in a ceramic jug of the house wine and you've got a... More

We entered the restaurant and we were told that the menu is 25 EUR/pers and we accepted without knowing what it was, based on TripAdvisor reviews. It was a great surprise with so much food, dessert, wine and water included. It was mainly based on pork, but we also had risotto, cheese, salad and potatoes. Be sure to go there... More

Starving we ordered mains of roasted pork and mixed grill. Even I had not eat all day I could not take it. It smelled avfull and it was chewy. Wasted 45 euros. Only good things I have to say is that they had nice homebrew beer.

Nice location, good beer and wine selection and atmosphere, but the food we ordered (mixed grill and roasted pork) was horrible.

The restaurant is located at a nice area in the city. Especially the terrace is fine. Good thing: the tables and chairs are standing flat. The pork is very traditional for Sardinia. The starters are okay. And try their Panna Cotta! The employees are okay, but not special.

Specialising in sharing platters on earthenware plates and wine served in earthenware jugs, this place is certainly different from all the pizza and pasta restaurants. The vegetable platter is great but the 5 cheeses are all too similar to provide the variety such dishes require - essentially just a goats cheese and 4 hard cheeses. Still, a nice interesting little... More
