Waiter was super friendly, get there at 7:00pm when it opens and the service will be fast and food is delicious. We have gone 6 times once a year.

simple food ,pizza plus some food selection with several frozen raw materials. price low but you can not expect top quality. wine chart at very good prices ,probably the best choice is to stick with pizzas. we had a poor plate of mussels which in this region is a shame, a sea salad returned to kitchen and remade, buffet offer...

Inexpensive, decent food. Not that great. Noticed many items on the menu were frozen, for seafood was disappointing. Staff was friendly and service was fast.

Recommended by a local, this restaurant was a great find, on the way between Porto Cervo and Arzachena. Very affordable (€6 - €10 for pizza and pasta), lively with great service and good food. Would return in a heart beat

In this zone is not easy to find a place with right prices for food... Usually you could spend much than you could imagine, but here the food is good, great wines, excellent fish menu and very nice card of desserts. Ideal for friends and family...

We stopped by for a late dinner and the place was buzzing. We had the scallopini which was tasty and a grilled seafood platter - the fish and crustaceans were great, but the octopus and calamari not. The pizza however is wonderful and cheap. If I'm ever lucky enough to be back in Sardinia I'll definitely be visiting la Vecchia... More

The best in the area, but get there by 8 pm or after 10:30 if you're in a hurry. Pizzas are superb. As for mains, I recommend spigola alla vernaccia. Try a bottle of Capichera (35 Euros, which is a lot cheaper than you'll find Sardinia's finest white wine in any other restaurant). If the Vecchia Costa is full -... More

We ate here a number of nights on our holiday. Apart from one disappointing meal the rest were excellent and such good value for money. The staff were friendly and helpful and we felt very welcome. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

We have eaten here for years and are never disappointed. Superb service, very good food and most attentive service even from the two owners who had especially purchased calves liver for us (it is not on the menu). Apparently even the chef enjoyed cooking something different for a change. We will be back.

we came around 9pm on a thursday night the restaurant was half full. The manager gave us a table pretty quickly but sat us on a table with some glasses and drinks from the previous customers, it take them a good 10 min to come back to clean the table. We order spaghetti with Lobster but when the food came... More
