Restaurant is crowded. Very good atmosphere. Sweating staff walking their *** off. There was a major problem in the kitchen when we sat down. It took the antipasti 90 minutes to arrive. But they were great. As were the main courses (filetto). In those 90 minutes we saw many dishes and pizze pass by and they all looked great. The... More

Five little girls and four adults can get a little noisy, but the service was wonderful. The pizza was excellent all around the table and everyone were very satisfied. The smell of the wood oven added to the ambience, and the light humid Mediterranean wind made it perfect in a very warm July night on Sardinia.

The grilled food was excellent. Traditional dishes some of which we didn't know what the meat was but the staff explained. Service a bit slow but the whole area is like that so don't expect to be in and out in ten minutes. Definitely worth as visit.

Six of us descended on the restaurant this evening, had fishy starters which were excellent, followed by various pizzas, all of which were of the highest standard, witnessed by the fact nothing was left on the plates. The owner, Rafaelle, was brilliant, friendly and informative and also very professional. Very impressed with the presentation of a very nice bottle of... More

Situated near the beach of San Pietro this restaurant offers you the well-known classics of Italian cuisine. Wide selection of pizza's from all over the world. We tried a few, but the Messicana was under average. Location is superb, but the rest is not really very special.

I've never had a bad pizza in Italy - and this nice little Pizzeria situated just yards from San Pietro beach in Valledoria didn't disappoint. It has a 100 to pick from so you might want to take a phrasebook or phone to look up what all of the toppings are!
