We went to Gastronomia da Anselmo but order our food to take away as the place has no outside are for eating and we didn't feel comfortable eating inside. Everything they have is homemade and freshly cooked, and everything looks delicious. They have a board...on the wall with all the dishes they offer but that day they may not have everything that's on the board so just go inside, check the food trays and choose. We had few different dishes (rice, beef, pan potatos with herbs, roasted veggies...) and everything was pretty good, even when we ate it two or three hours after buying them.More

We ate dinner and lunch there and it was better than some of the "restaurant" experinces we had in Sardinia. I would suggest to try Melanzana parmiggiana and any of the fish dishes. The guy runni g the shop was really nice and polite and...had good recomendations. The prices are well below average. Try it!!!More

Restaurant prices in La Maddalena are not cheap, so here is an exception. Yes, they use plastic plates and the interior is nothing to write home about, but you go there for the food. Local cuisine that can be eaten there at one of the...tables they offer inside, or wrapped up to be taken away. I guess the locals pop in to take food home, or sit there and enjoy a nice cold beer with their food. You can choose a set menu, where you get a first course (pasta dish), main course (meat or fish) and a side side dish (vegetables) for a price of around €15 - a bargain. We had eggplant parmigiano, sea bass in orange sauce and battered scorpionfish with olive sauce, and some brocolli and potatoes. Washed down with some cold local beer. Just as we were leaving, the lady carried in a large pan of freshly made octopus salad, so we naturally took the opportunity to get some to take home - delicious! You should definitely come here if you are in the vicinity. The staff are friendly, even if only one spoke English, we managed to get by smiling and pointing ☺️More

We called before to have some of the fabulous dishes published here and we ended up going for the porc. We bought the piece of porc in a nice butcher near the restaurant, and it they have arranged all cooking for us. Amazing! We had...the porc in 15min so good it was... No fat or strange flavours added; only mirto branches and the little pig itself. Amazing, the same way we have it in Portugal - crispy and juicy in the inside. Very cheap also. We will return for sure.More

When the restaurant menus in La Maddalena get redundant and you just want some satisfying, fresh, homemade food, get over to Anselmo's before they close! During our five days in town, we ate lunch there once and bought food to go a couple other times....The service was great, the prices very reasonable. Highly recommended.More

Thank you trip advisor as we discovered this place and we absolutely loved it. This is exactly what we like on holiday : fresh, local and typical food prepared with love by Anselmo, simple place to eat, very good quality and not expensive. It was...our canteen for 2 days ! We just loved it and would come back for sure if we get back to la Maddalena.More

One more year I am here and delighting myself with wonderful restaurant, this year I am eating the white rice salad with vegetables and of course the delicious Catalan streak. A great option to take is the sausage coves, a delight. Come to La Maddalena...and not eat here is like not coming.More
