“Best sea salad ever”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

We just stopped by chance and were coming from the beach, so not ready for sitting in the restaurant.

We kindly asked if we could take away and while waiting for our food to be prepared, had a chat with one of the employees, that described the humble origins of the restaurant, started in the post war years by Mrs. Barbara. Food cooked with the heart and respect for the ingredients. With no hesitation I can say that we had the best 'insalata di mare' ever, absolutely balanced and delicious. The courteousness of the employees is very refreshing and authentic. Will definitely go prepared for a full meal next time.

“Enjoyable and cozy little place with excellent pizza and pasta”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

We have eaten at Da Barbara several times and really enjoyed it. It is very down to earth and friendly, and the food is excellent. My daughter really loved the Spaghetti Vongole (clams), which was fresh and very tasty. The prices are good, and the staff made us feel like we were at home.

“Best Sardenian food near Geremeas / Solanas”
Reviewed 22 August 2012 via mobile

Booking is adviced, we arrived without reservation and had to wait 1 hour in a near by cafe.

The place as such is nothing superb but still quite ok, no see view, no great atmosphere either but good service and comfortable.

What this place is all about is the food, and their food / wine selection is why this place is the best in this part of Sardinia; we can particularly recommend:

The fregolla ala bottarga, spaghetti ala bottarga, the grilled swordfish (best I have ever tried), and as first dish the insalata di mare... A delicious see food salad.

Wearing shirt and some Bermudas would be good.
