“Seafood at its best”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

This place had a nice, friendly and cozy atmosphere. Coming from Japan, freshness of seafood is of paramount importance for me and this place did not disappoint. All the fresh seafood was so fresh that they had natural sweetness. They seasoned it with just lemon juice, salt and olive oil. I love the minimal (yet perfect) seasoning that enables me to enjoy the flavor of seafood.

I will definitely go back there in a heartbeat.

“Outstanding! Excellent fish and regional cuisine!”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

Sardinian friends took us in October 2013 to this place and we were truly amazed. First of all, we were quite lucky this evening to get a table since they had one cancellation immediately before we called. When we arrived later that evening at 8pm the place was empty, but within 45mins it was absolutely packed (and we were about to find out why ;-).

The waiter came to our table and instead of offering a menu he told us which fresh fish they had this day and what options we had for preparation. We decided for some "antipasti di mare", "fregola and spaghetti alla vongole" and "zuppa di pesce".

The antipasti were truly amazing. We were a group of 8 (four children) and ordered antipasti for three and even that was too much, because we received six to eight different dishes (tuna, pulpo, sardines, etc.) and all of them were delicious. The primi piatti were nice as well and were even topped by the zuppa di pesce in the end. You don't find such a zuppa in many restaurants as it takes a lot of effort. It takes also some time to be prepared (and hence our evening became late), but the wait is absolutely worth it!!!

Overall, it was a very nice experience and the food was really excellent. The service was a bit slow (only one waiter for the whole place). When the bill was presented it turned out that they do not accept any cards, so we had to go to a bancomat around the corner. Overall, given the food they prepared for us, we were very willing to accept this without any complaints and are very much looking forward to our next trip there.

Suggestions: Reserve early and bring some cash, then you will have a fantastic evening!

At first it was like impossible to get a table, so you have to call a week before! Anyway, the starters were great, really, the fish is always fresh. Really the fish is great, the risotto was not good at all, the linguini was fine! It's not a fancy place, there is nothing special about the atmosphere, but they really have great fish!!

“Outstanding restaurant with excellent price/quality”
Reviewed 29 June 2011

Simply outstanding quality - The fish is simply delicious - and as weird as it sounds, this is the only restaurant in the area that had fresh fish. Despite the much higher quality, prices are fully in-line with the other restaurants - the only problem? It is so good that it is always booked out - you need to call a week ahead or be very lucky
