We had calamari and fish mix. Best we had in Sardinia! Strongly recommend it! Proces are reasonable and the service is really impressive: fast despite that place is full.

When we arrived, the restaurant was empty. Hard to believe the locals call it a favourite, but within 90 minutes, it was heaving. Mostly all you hear was Italian, which told us this was a local haunt. Wonderful seafood, best pasta I have eaten in Sardinia, altogether a fantastic meal. We are a large group, 18 in all, and they... More

This restaurant is absolutely fantastic! It was recommended by a local who said it served terrific fish and pizzas. At first, we thought he was just sending us over to one of his friends who had a restaurant in the area, as it on a side street and not too appealing to look at. However, the restaurant is always packed... More

This place does great pizza. We had a pizza each (they're massive) and wine for only 28 Euros. Need to book at the weekend as it fills up quickly with locals and tourists alike.

Freshness, quality, preparation, presentation, service. Every thing was great. The carpaccio di tono was fabulous. And the portions are very generous. And their prices are very reasonable. This restaurant is two steps from the old town, close to the harbor. Yes, they serve mostly fish (check the name), but they also do pizzas in the evening. Watch out, the place... More

Was recommended this place for really good pizza, but couldn't get in the evening we tried because it was completely full (good sign). We had lunch the following day, to find that they do not offer pizza during the day. So, we had the fresh fish which was incredibly tasty, quite expensive, but worth it. The house white was to...

5 stars for the food and 3 stars for the service. Their seafood and pasta dishes in the Catalonian and Alghero style was tasty and nicely presented. They also have a great variety of pizza. (We didn't try any pizza, so can't make a comment though.) The price was reasonable compared to the other restaurants in the historic area. The... More

The food here was very good, especially the one based on seafood. The price is fair for the quality offered. Highly recommend this place.

Il Pesce d'oro was recommended by our nearby hotel. We decided to order the pasta with lobster & the grilled market fish. A large tray of assorted fish was brought to our table. We chose a small sea bass. It's eyes were clear & bright. A short time later the grilled, filleted sea bass arrived back at our table. It... More
