Went to Sa Cardiga with my family. Living in the U.K. I really wanted a restaurant where I could taste the authentic tastes of my island. There I did. The seafood dishes were outstanding and the freshness of the ingredients really amazing. Every single meal was prepared and presented with care and the wine selection was very good. The staff...

Visited for a group dinner with seven people. As a Canadian visiting on business, this restaurant was an exceptional dinner. Thankfully our hosts spoke Italian, but wow, this was a memorable, tasty dinner.

I had a wonderful meal here last week with a group of 15 people. The service was lovely, the setting was elegant yet comfortable. We had tastings of most of their seafood specialties (eel, octopus, calamari, etc.) and each one was better than the last, including two spectacular fish pasta dishes. The desserts were unique (specialties of the area -... More

Very nice place, super nice and friendly staff. Looked like a good start. NOT AT ALL As son as you arrive they ask if you like to have a glass of Champagne, and bring you a small "tagliere" with some Parmesan cream and olives. As Italian I know those starters are always for free and this I supposed was also... More

I am very confused by the negative comments made about this amazing restaurant! As soon as we walked in we were shown to our table and given the English menus. Our waiter then came to our table spoke to us first in Italian, then in English. He gave us complimentary bread, wine, olives, creamed cheese and Salami. He explained the... More

You have to pay 4€/person just to seat)(even if you are a four year old girl). We saw everyone was given a free starter, but it seems as it was just for frecuent guests even when that gift was announced on the menu. I understand italian quiet well and I heard two times how they explained other guests that we... More

Elegant, nice patrons. Food is typical Sardinian, mostly, but not only, fish. Wide choice. Good quality. Go for the antipasti di mare, lobster, shrimps, langoustine. Great desserts too. It takes a 15 minute drive from Cagliari.

I have been to this restaurant twice, once for fish and once for meat. As soon as you sit down, they bring you this cheese spread that is PHENOMENAL. I would have eaten just that all night. Otherwise, the rest of the food was better than average, but not spectacular. By far the best restaurant on the Capoterra coastline. BUT...the... More
