What a find! beautiful restaurant , and they were so welcoming and helpful. they gave us a menu and the lady took time to go through the dishes and explain what they were, our Italian is poor! We had the sliced beef starter, and I had the most amazing gnocchi in a local sardinian sauce. My partner had a different... More

We were on the point of walking out after waiting for 20 minutes for the waitress bringing us the menu. Having decided on our meal we had another 20 minutes to wait before our order was taken. We were impressed on reading the history of the restaurant but we definitely were not impressed with the food here. It took us... More

Please keep away from this shameful tourist trap that is lucky to have such a prime location. Visited with my family and this place gives Sardinia such a bad name.   We were almost bullied into taking one of their tables and the waitress immediately set about encouraging us to order an expensive appetiser that we clearly didn't want.   So a...

In competition with several others close by. Worth a visit but always try the others to get a good range of the local, excellent food.

While they have a full menu for lunch and dinner, we had the pizza. An individual pizza is the size of an American "small" and we... More

Came here because other places were full as a busy night. This was our first clue this might not be the best. The place was almost empty but the waiting staff still took ages to come and take our order. We ordered wine and had to ask again and there was no apologies for forgetting. The pizzas we ordered were... More

Stopped for a quick lunch and had a wonderful meal... The pizza was great. The cave decor was fun, the staff and service were excellent! Too bad we weren't in Cagliari longer or we would have come back for supper!

Had a wonderful dinner for two there last summer. Fish menu was absolutely good. Enjoyed their house wine. Price was very cheap, too. Good service, friendly staff, didn't get to wait long.
