Nice place, quite small, only about 6 tables. We had a great dish, "Cavatelli ai frutti di mare", it was extremely good. You can book a table choosing between two times during the evening. We booked at 21h40, the second one, while the first one should be at 20h.

I was here with my girlfriend, and we order a Sea appetizer to share, she ordered Tuna breaded and I ordered different Sea food with pasta as main course. The appetizers was ok, but nothing special - Swordfish was a bit overcooked but the sauce tasted good. Mussels were luke warm and the "soup" was tasteless, and even if mussels... More

Very good seafood spot. Super small, very authentic. Only about 6 or 7 mains on the menu each day. All very fresh and good. Service was great too.

we had a mixed seafood appetizer plate that was just amazing. followed by seafood pasta and a tuna steak fried in breadcrumbs. both were perfect. this tiny space does not look like much from the outside but is a true gem inside. the service just speaks italian but its not really a problem and they are very patient and friendly!...

This restaurant is quite nice, offering all the Sardinian specialities. We had better food on the actual Sardinian island, but this was pretty good too.

Considering the previous reviews, I was expecting a fantastic, tiny, rare and unforgettable place. It's tiny, but not fantastic. It's good and worth going, but don't expect that you'll have a lifetime experience in a peculiar local small restaurant. Nice food, nice staff. Maybe if my expectations (or the price) were low, I would give a 4 star review.

When we had dinner there we were positively surprised about the quality of the food and the very good attention we were given. All proudcts are fresh and that is shown by a very small menu which ensures that they use the best products of the day. It is neecessary to book as it is always full.

If you are not a fish lover you should not attend this restaurant. Also make sure that you make reservations in advance, because it is a tiny restaurant that seems to be fully booked almost every evening. There is no fixed menu and you will have to communicate with a kind waitress that barely speaks English, but that is part... More
