Can’t recommend this place high enough. Everything we tried was light, fresh and very tasty. Great waiter too. Nice location in a little walk only street. Enjoy the seafood!

This restaurant stop for a day trip to Cagliari was recommended by our favorite restaurant in Alghero. We loved our lunch and would highly recommend!
