We went to this restaurant for dinner after seeing the reviews on trip advisor and it did not dissapoint, the best sea food ever! With a wonderful hostess who speaks amazing English and suggested the right choices for us , it has been an amazing experience and would definately come back for more !!

Went there suggested by the hotel I slept in, and was really excellent! A small venue with a supernice owner/hostess (luckily she speaks great english!) who suggested all the best from the menu, with perfect wine to drink with the fresh, simple though tasty food. A real experience of delightness which I recommend if you happen to be in Cagliari...

As you might realise, it was the highlight meal of the trip, wish we had booked earlier, but then it wouldn't be the final highlight! As a confirmed meat eater that's saying something.
Booking is advisable as it only has 30 covers but this allows the multi-lingual and exceptional hostess to give her attention to everyone in a nicely appointed and styled restaurant.
We had a great conversation about the place and the food they had and went with the recommendation to try the selection of seafood as an anti-pasta.
Eight or nine plates of food later we had to skip the primi and secondo platters and go straight to dessert. There was lobster, swordfish, sea bass, octopus, langoustines, and tuna, deep fried courgette flowers. Prepared in a variety of absolutely delicious ways (sea bass and sultanas, swordfish and apple, various tempura battered, grilled etc etc......)
Desserts are served in small (believe me you don't need more) oval glasses and are very good, I had the chocolate panna cotta!
As per the other reviews you do have to ring the door bell but its not a difficult place to find with large signage over the front. There are very few other eateries or retail units on this street though so don't be put off. Our taxi driver was at pains to point out there was no mafia or cosa nostra on the island and everywhere was safe and so it was for us.
Just book and go you will not regret it.

Delicious Sardinian seasonal menu served by wonderfully charismatic hostess.
Supported by superb kitchen team. Using fantastic local produce serving many
Sardinian favourites. Sardinian wines and beers available too.
Booking essential, there are only so many tables and so many seatings per week.
Wonderful warm feel to the dining room.
Starter Main Dessert including drinks per person was about $50/€35p.p.
SO worth it!!! If you enjoy an after dinner digestive you must try their
homemade Myrtle liqueur drink "Mirto" - ice cold is a must.
