Visited La Grotta the 8th of August. The worst experiences on Sardinia. The food was terrible and completely overpriced. We were waiting one hour for food to be served. Personnel was rude and refused to speak English. Worst of all; they just randomly add food...More

Food is good but not unique. Service very chaotic while friendly. All this cannot justify the prices that are exorbitant. Unfortunately the owner is well aware and proud of it so I don't think it will ever change.

This restaurant is centrally located in La Maddalena and is probably one of the oldest in town. The location is super and it is pleasant to sit outside for dinner. While being in La Maddalena we decided to go for dinner. Nice table for two...More
