Walked in at lunch. I got gnocchi with shrimp, artichokes, and light pecorino cheese. Husband got the very lightly fried mixed seafood. Both dishes so incredible makes me want to move to Sardinia !

Exceptionally good food with a Sardenian touch in the menu! Great antipasti, especially the slightly cooked salmon and extremely good primi, especially the home-made orecchiette! Very professional and friendly staff!
