Terrible service and no social distancing of tables. It took one hour to cook our two pizzas. Terrible. Most definitely do not recommend.

Had a meal here, customer service needs Improvement as staff very unwelcoming. Though they were nearly empty the waiter means and groaned about finding us a table, by the time we left only one other table occupied so not sure why they didn’t want our...business. Food ok and no after effects. We will go back to more hospitable restaurants and not return here.More

We were 2 couples and ordered 4 pizzas and and couvert and 4 gin and tonic. They simply didn't know how to serve this drink! the couvert has come but the pizzas never did! After 40 minutes and many many times calling the waiter and...listenning "its coming. I only serve the tables, I don't cook!" , we went to the manager and guess what!! The pizzas had not even been ordered!! We left angry and hungry!! Choose another one. There are hundreds!!More

We've dined there few times (I guess it was easy to access and laziness in looking for different place took over) before our experience became very bad. On one night we ordered few meals including a vegetarian version of their calzone (no problem the waiter...said). After we all started eating our pasta and so my wife discovered that her vegetarian calzone, in fact, has ham in it. The waiter picked it up for exchange quickly and returned with a calzone that was not exactly baked (mozzarella was still raw and cold inside). While paying I had to pint out and ask for them to remove the unedible calzone from the bill. In a week or so we decided to give them another chance. We got a table but ..after 20 minutes of waiting for anything (no drinks, no water not even menus to look at) we left the restaurant. Truly it was unreal.More

I'm all in favour of al fresco dining when in the warmth of a La Maddalena evening, but unfortunately Garden Restaurant takes it too far. You have a good chance of being stuck at a table a couple of shop units away from the restaurant...door, forgotten about, and basically in the way of people trying to use the street for everyday things such as walking. The food was fine - pizzas about average price-wise and the worst of our holiday quality-wise, but by no means bad. Service was erratic and muddled, in part due to our distance from the door.More

Very average restaurant along a pretty street in La Maddalena. The restaurant was not overly busy but we waited a very long time before having our order taken and again when we wanted to pay the bill. Staff seemed under pressure and distracted - orders...were taken incorrectly and one waitress was quite rude when we asked to correct this. Pizza was adequate but nothing out of the ordinary.More

We got to the restaurant while walking the street, spoke with the owner and decided to have dinner. The restaurant is newly opened. We got great service and excellent food. We agreed on a fixed menu for 25 euro per person, and we got wine,...starters, first, second and main course and also a desert,,,, We enjoyed everything!More

Good for a quick non impressive lunch/dinner. I never go to these kind of places, but the pizza was very good. The terrace is not that nice as it is directly onto the street. There was kids riding there bikes trying do wheelings and almost...hit us, a elderly woman coming out of the store nearby amongst other targets. There was also wanna be gangstas beat boxing back and forth in the street (that could be very charming otherwise). I just did not fell comfortable at all... But the pizza is good!More

After we had taken our seats, the waiter tried his best to flog us the multi-course tourist menu at lunchtime, when all we were looking for was some decent pasta and pizza. He was unhappy we didn't go for the expensive set menu, and then...became very awkward. When ordering a pizza, he started to complain "this is a restaurant, not a pizzeria!" despite pizza being on the menu. Finally we had to walk out before our food arrived as the service was so hostile.More
