“A Family Owned treasure”
Reviewed 23 June 2013 via mobile

As you climb the long set of steep steps from the car park you wonder what awaits you at the top. A warm friendly welcome is what you get before being seated overlooking a magnificent view. I was taken and shown firstly the anti pasti counter followed by the fresh fish display. As i walked back to the table I passed the wood fired pizza oven and watched in awe as the pizzas were prepared. We were the only non Italians there and no English is spoken by the owners. The 15 or so plates of anti pasti were devoured as was the simply grilled sea bass. We decided to finish with tiramisu which was quite simply the best. This restaurant and its owners cannot be praised highly enough. Just go.

“Simply excellent”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

This is an authentic Sardinian restaurant. You will not get a 5 star service here neither do you get a waitress speaking English here, but what you get is the best food prepared from local products, home made pasta, home made ice cream etc.

You must visit this place to taste an excellent Sardinian food!

“The real thing - Authentique”
Reviewed 3 August 2012

I have tried more or less all restaurants on this coast for the last 20 years. This one is the most authentic, with local products, most of them coming from the farm of the family in head of this summer restaurant. Wild fresh fishes and my favorite pizza. You can go safely, this is not a tourist trap like many others. Fan of organic products will find here a place to enjoy.

Super restaurant sans fioritures, des produits sains, souvent issus de la ferme biologique de la famille qui gère cet endroit. Pâtes, poissons sauvages frais, pizzas bien meilleures qu'ailleurs, grâce à la qualité de la pâte semi-complète produite et travaillée maison. Parole de sioux.

“Typical sardinian restaurant, excellent experience”
Reviewed 5 September 2011

This restaurant made our vacation, family run business, simple decoration, amazing food, excellent service, affordable prices
A three course menu with wine is an average of 50 euro, worth every euro. Staff very friendly. We went there twice
