Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We first visited L'Ancora back in 2019 when the staff were so helpful to us and the food was great, meaning it always seemed to be very busy. We were delighted go back (3 times in 10 days) and find the same people there, and were glad we booked as it was still very busy, and people were being turned away who didn't have bookings. As previously the staff were very helpful and friendly and the food was really good and sensibly priced. The house wine is particularly reasonable with a quarter bottle costing 2 Euros! Well worth a visit if you are in the area, but don't forget to book.

Our second visit to L’Ancora in under a week, once for dinner and today for lunch. We have been previously, several years ago (pre-Covid) and this is still the best restaurant for seafood for miles! The menu is varied so there’s a good choice of starters and mains. The food is of very high quality, so compliments to the chef/ cooks! Every time we are so well looked after by Mirella who is attentive, knowledgable, courteous and helpful and really makes our visits to L’Ancora so memorable!

The Food was delicious, the staff even Better. What a wonderful meal. My husband had pasta with meat sauce. I had the saffron cream ravioli. With a glass of wine, so delightful and enjoyable. Reservations on a Tuesday in October, probably Suggested. A large party was turned away. Highly Recommended … soooo good.

We went to L'Ancora after finding the restaurant we had intended to visit closed. They were fully booked but went out of their way to help and found a table for us. The food was really good and the people so friendly and helpful. I would recommend a visit if you are in Portoscuso.

The good was very, very good. So was also the red house wine. However, what really made the visit perfect were all the locals coming for dinner. The feeling you get when locals come is far better than only seeing a lit if tourists.

This restaurant was an extraordinary experience! If you have chance to go to L‘Ancora - please do so! By accident we landed in Portoscuso and after a day on the boat, we went to this restaurant... I have never experienced something like this: we arrived 50 minutes before they opened the restaurant, but tenderly we were welcomed by Mirella (I think the owner of this restaurant). While serving us aperetivo drinks, she dropped fresh flowers to all of the tables. She was so nice and welcoming that we already felt like home. The food was DELICIOUS (I am half italian, I know what I’m talking about ;) - we were in heaven! The mussles, oysters, salad and the pasta was just from another planet! The service was heavenly, all of the waiters were so sweet, funny and professional. Without ordering a desert, we got a lemon sorbet after the meal and in addition, Mirella gave us a (freshly made, still warm) cake to taste with the words: „This is a typical sardinian sweet and I want you to taste it.“ We followed her funny instruction and it was meraviglioso! The most extraordinary thing comes now: as our hotel was a 20 minutes walk by feet away from the restaurant, we were DRIVEN HOME by a gentlemen who worked there, in the midst of a very crowded evening (all tables in the restaurant were booked)!!! In the whole world, I have never experienced such a place like this. Thank you, „L’ Ancora“, thank you Mirella, for this evening!!!

Place was packed all night and it was a Tuesday. Service was fabulous from start to finish, Mirella was awesome at suggesting dishes and making sure we had everything that we needed. We ordered a liter of house white for 6 euros, it was really nice. For starter, prosciutto e melone and the octopus salad, both plentiful and delicious. We then shared the mixed fish grill, which had a whole sea bream, swordfish, cuttlefish, a red prawn and a langoustine. Everything fresh and tasted right out of the sea. We’re going back, as the atmosphere and food was so good. We also saw other dishes that looked fabulous too: the mussel soup, the steak, the fresh tuna...Highly recommended. Family run, they really care and work very hard to ensure the enjoyment of their customers.

First of all Thank You Mariella for being so incredibly good at welcoming people. All her recommendations were absolutely perfect and her attention and warmth unforgettable. The fish we had was the freshest and cooked to perfection. The octopus they gave us as appetiser wow! The prawns also full of flavour. And to finish we again took her advise on the ravioli filled with ricotta fried with honey and OMG perfect ending of a meal. What else can I say I work in a restaurant and I wish all my staff could be as good as Mariella Grazie Mille per tutto cara

We went there for dinner, a reservation is necessary. Although we don't speak any Italian we were able to make ourselves understood, the staff was very nice, lovely even, and helpful. The mussels as well as the sea food risotto was fantastic and authentic. If you eher come to Portoscuso, go to L'ancora, it's absolutely worth it!
