This is a lovely place, proper authentic food - don't embarrass yourselves asking for chips please, you won't get them. All seafood served with raw vegetables. very reasonable - cheap but lovely wine by the caraffe. This is where you go to have an experience and enjoy the sort of hospitality you only receive in family-run establishments. Buono appetito!
p.s. acquaint yourself with some Italian food vocabulary if you get a chance before you go.

I won't talk about the food... It really doesn't matter at this moment.
Me and my wife had the worst experience ever in this trattoria (date: 28 may 2014). Shortly after we sit, my wife asked for some wine, but not a bottle (it would be too much). The waiter (I suppose he was the owner, much older than the other guys and acting like a supervisor) had the most rude reaction possible. He was lucky I didn't punch him.
What can I say about him... Sardo di m*, c*gli*ne, str*nz*!
Please don't go there. Don't waste your money.
Per favore, state lontani di questa trattoria di m*!!

Advice given to tourists is to pick a restaurant where the locals eat. Well the inside of this one was packed with them. We sat outside with the rest of the tourists enjoying the sun and I suspect the service was rather slow because of that.
The waiter spoke excellent English and helped to steer us to away from the traditional Italian dishes we already knew to local ones. The food was very good especially the cheese filled sweet ravioli we has for pudding.
The wine was good, toilets clean and prices reasonable.

This is a well-known restaurant in Cagliari, which serves traditional food with reasonable quality and prices. They also feature a singing waiter to enliven the atmosphere. Don't come here for new and modern cuisine, but rather for a taste of traditional Cagliari.

This was the first time we had tried an authentic trattoria taking in the traditional Italian cuisine. What an experience, the food was fantastic, the atmosphere great with the one of the staff producing a guitar and singing to a captive audience of diners.

We visited the restaurant on a Monday she. Most of the restaurants are closed, but the Lillicu was very busy, full of locals which is always a good sign. The food was plentiful and very reasonably priced.

A an absolute must if you are in Cagliari
