Had lunch here under recommendation of a friend. The venue is cozy and well set up. The dishers are fantastic: pesto and tuna lasagne are a very tasty unexpected perfect match, and the tune tagliata, special made not with tuna ventresca but with the even better tuna part being the fillet, was the best I ever had. Perfectly cooked, simply... More

Over last year I have been several time in this place, on average happy enough to come back, despite high prices. Last time the room was too warm and humid (I was not the only guest swetting and complaining, in vain), the "frittura" absolutely mediocre (calamari hard to chew, probably frozen - although according to the menu they should have...

Great seafood place - probably the best in town. Bustling, so you need to reserve a day or two in advance in peak season. Great fish, fresh seafood, local produce and wine. Friendly service.

We had a lunch for two in the osteria. The Taste of the pasta and the tonno were outstanding, the wine classy, the dolces simply heaven, the waiters attentive. No probleme at all when sharing one serve between the two. The restaurant is somewhat classical chique. Recommendable for everyone as part of a very enjoyable visit to Carloforte.

Probably the best grilled tuna I have ever had! Be sure to order the Ventresca, the part of tuna under side below the gills. The most moist and tasty part of the fish. The calamari is awesome too! Frequented by lots of locals. They don't speak English so bring your mobile translator with you.

We visited Da Andreas totally because of the excellent reviews that we had seen and even though it was late May I called in to book first. By 20.15 it was full so just as well and almost entirely full with locals which is always a good sign. We had a plate of mixed appetisers which was more than enough... More

After seeing many great reviews we gave it a try and it was superb. Selection of starters were very tasty so were the pasta we tried and also the tuna as "secondo". I will go back for sure when around Carloforte! Bravi a tutti

We are in Carloforte a lot, in fact this year we will be here for five months, but for some reason there are two restaurants we hadn't been in for a long time and this was one of them - so in an attempt to put this right we tried again. I'm so glad I came back and I am... More

Went for a late lunch after arriving for a day trip from Calasetta. Pasta dishes were great, probably the best we've had during our trip. We shared calamari and grilled veg for our mains. Staff were friendly. Good value, came to about 50 euros in total.

I visited this restaurant in a stormy day in April 2015. Despite the restaurant was pretty much all for us the host was warm and greeted us like was expected. We just had a starter and a main and was more than enough, nice fresh tune, delicious vegetables. I truly suggest to stop there and enjoy a modern "tabarchino" food.

Thank Francesco S
