Doesn't look too promising from the outside. But don't be fooled. Excellent food, good service, lovely atmosphere. Can't recommend it enough.

We spent a great dinner at this place, good location, kind helpful staff. Food was excellent, the best risotto we tried, seafood pasta was very delicious, we very not able to say no for dessert: triamisu was very good, if you are in Porto Torres, go there and have a great Italian lunch or dinner.

We came here from Stintino almost 25 minutes by car. I think that it was the best decision of our vacation. Food was excellent and everything was appropriate to Italian kitchen. Not only the food, the service was also 5 stars. I recommend this place to all travelers looking for an excellent place.
