Easy going place. Visited by many italians, who seem to know and like this place. Honest good food and service, a bit understaffed for a busy evening. Decent prices. Just a short drive from the little port town.

We know what Sardinia offers, its cusine and amazing dishes. We arrived to this amazing place and we spent about 80EUR for a "calamari fritti" fried in overburned oil. What a bad experience... 22EUR/dish and we took two (we were dreaming calamari fritti since last year): then we get this cheap overburned plate. Great location and poor management. When we... More

If you are looking for rustic outside country dining cooked over a wood fire, Locanda del Mirto is a fantastic choice. We had the table under a tree and had suckling pig which was so good we returned for a Fiorentina steak the next day. The local wine recommended by the owner was superb. A highly recommended choice if you... More

The food was very hit and miss. The pasta variation starter was excellent with an interesting combination of flavours. My calamares sweet and sour was tragic...fantastic flavourful sweet and sour onions...gamely combating to overcome a... More

My easiest review so far: just go there and judge for yourself, ignore the reviews. Probably 90% of the customers are returning customers, either they are stupid or the bad reviews are fake. We went there reluctantly because of the bad reviews, we had a fantastic meal, service superb and excellent atmosphere. We went back the following day. We asked... More

After travelling around Italy for 4 weeks, we had eating more than enough pizza, pasta and seafood. This place offered the perfect alternative. Located in an secluded setting the decor is really nice and relaxed. The chef came out personally to take our order. She offered sound advice and cooked up the perfect steak, roast potatoes, vegies and a salad.... More
