“The Chef drove us home! What hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2011

WE had an amazing time on our honeymoon eating at Love Restaurant in Porto Cervo. The selection of appetizers was phenomenal, and we had wonderful local fare "fregola" pasta with clams, mussels, and seafood. For the entree, a perfectly grilled "honore" fish and then wonderful dessert to top it off.

The real charm here is the atmosphere, Maestro Marco Palumbo the head chef and his trusty sidekick waiter Federico hosted us like their own family. At the end of the night when we needed a taxi home after enjoying the excellent local wine, the chef instead offered to drive us himself with a guided tour of the area all the way back. What a great time! Definitely give some Love to Love when you're next in Sardinia.

“The Chef Drove us Home!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2011

Wow! we read the reviews about love bar and were wondering how it was possible that EVERYONE rated it excellent. It seemed a bit odd but nonetheless we decided to try it out. Our hotel hadn't heard of the restaurant but we found it very conveniently located in the heart of Porto Cervo. From the moment we sat down we had an amazing experience. Instead of ordering off the menu, the head chef Mr. Marco Palumbo greeted us at the table and asked if he could entertain us with a few local favourite appetizers. We made our way through delicious barese pizza, a mix of home made "tartar's", and some wonderful local wines (priced very reasonably!). We had a wonderful sardinian pasta with mussels and clams and then a perfectly grilled 'honore' fish with potato and tomato/vegatable accompaniment. Federico the waiter was awesome and gave us a history of Sardinia while we waited for our entrees. At the end of the night, we were presently surprised by the reasonable pricing of the food and we asked if they could call us a taxi home - instead the chef said it would be no problem to drop us off as it was not out of his way and he drove us straight to our hotel! What a great experience. Definitely make your way to LOVE RESTAURANT when visiting Sardegna.
