This restaurant served by far the best meal we had eaten in Sardinia. Every dish looked beautiful and tasted delicious. The homemade bread was a real treat too. Each dish was explained perfectly to us and we enjoyed everything we ate. The decor of this little restaurant is quirky and inviting, I would definitely recommend a visit here.

The waitress was extremely friendly! She explained the menu to us! We tried the 5 course meal. The presentation of the food was top quality and all made fresh to order. Can not fault the food as it tasted amazing! The toilet was clean and tidy too

Absolutely outstanding restaurant in Olbia. We didn't expect such a great quality of food and service. Whatever we have chosen to eat ( baked Risotto, fresh Sea bass, etc. ) was tasteful and nicely presented. Reservation is recommended.

We were looking for the top ten restaurants in Olbia and we spotted this restaurant. It is outside the center BUT well worth the travel. To start with, we came into this trattoria and question our decision then ...,..Boom effect ! Everything was more than excellent and that is comparing too much experience in Michelin/ Gault Millau references!!!! We simply... More

We had dinner al Mattacchione last week, for my dad's birthday. We have been to numerous restaurants in and around Olbia and I have never had such a nice and perfectly cooked vegetarian meal- my food was light and tasty, perfectly cooked. My parents had tuna and meat and they loved it as well. Desserts are also very good as... More

We enjoyed this lovely restaurant and the beautiful flavours and presentation of the dishes. The waitress was really sweet and very fluent in English. I ordered the octopus as a starter and that was delicious. My girlfriend ordered seabass and crunchy vegetables on a bed of courgette cream and it was perfect for her!

Based on other TripAdvisor reviews we chose Mattacchione, looking for something slightly more special than the many perfectly acceptable restaurants in the area, and were very impressed. The decor was modern and unpretentious, which would explain how the quality can be kept high within reasonable prices. The food was inventive and delicious. We accompanied it with a bottle of Sardinian... More

We visited this restaurant because of the reviews. It's quite a walk from town, not that they knew. However we were seated awhile before we were offered water and we wanted wine. Bit of language difficulties but vino is clear, we thought. Delicious starters, although not convinced melon compliments octopus but both were superb. Excellent gnocchi with clams. Mains very...

This was without a doubt the best meal that we had in Sardinia. Friendly attentive staff. The waitress spoke excellent English and guided us through the whole menu. Would not hesitate in recommending ll Mattacchione for a romantic evening out.
