A friend recommended the place as she knows the chef. We decided to go for the mixed tasting and got about 11 dishes of seafood, meat, cheese and vegetables. It was the best decision we could make. Very tasty, special experience and absolutely worth the price.

I only been once and a half.I will explain the "half" shortly, but for now let's focus on the review. The restaurant is in a nice location on some narrow steps and is very cosy. In the owner's intention, this should have been a restaurant serving elaborate Sardinian food. In reality, the attempt is sloppy and pretentious. The quality of... More

I had dinner with a group of Americans, Canadians and Australians and it was a blast! excellent dinner, the staff is always welcoming and smiling, good pace for the courses, nothing was wrong. I highly suggest to try this restaurant in Cagliari if you want to experience some local Sardinian food

Pasta is first class, service is great and what a wine list. Just what you would expect from a good old fashioned Italian restaurant, and a glass of Muscat with the bill. Perfecto!

There was a table outside and we asked if we could sit. The waiter asked us to wait and gave permission to sit after couple of minutes. Later he came with the table cloth. Atmosphere was ruined in beginning when the waiter forgot our drinks. He was inside so we couldn't wink him either. The place wasn't really full. We... More

We loved this place. Ordered the 12 course degustation which includes food from the land and the sea and it was a pleasurable feast. Also, special mention to the wine we ordered- Buio, a local red made from Carignane grapes.Sensational, and only 20 euro.

My youngest son (8) said: "nice, but wouldn't come back again". The place is lovely, service was excellent, but the food was not as good as expected. Also, it was clear that cheese and ham were left outside of the fridge on a very hot day... Maybe good for tourists not expert of sardinian food... Not as good as expected... More

We were 36, so a huge group, with a well defined menù. We had super traditional food from Sardinia with tasty offer: fish, fregola, meat, dessert and a great wine. Lovely position, close to the very center. Personnel were super kind! Furniture is really cute.

Quaint restaurant recommended by our BB host. The restaurant is unusual in that it is like a narrow room with atmospheric decor reminiscent of an old farm house or winery. You climb stairs from the street to the entrance and then descend again to the indoor seating area. Possible to sit outside but it was a very warm night so... More
