Worth to stop for an excellent lunch after the shopping experience. Very good food and friendly staff. Also the prices are moderate. Would recommend for Italian specialties fans.

It was a very nice surprise to find this Sardinian restaurant in Udine. Great genuine Sardinian food and a very friendly staff. Don’t forget to buy some Sardinian food or wine to bring home with you after tasting it at the restaurant (Bulloni bakery’s carasau...bread is really special).More

Its a really nice restaurant with great food. Quite expensive, and the portions are not really enough for 1 person, but if you eat a starter, 1st and 2nd dish it will be enough :) The desserts are not so special.

Regional Sardinian restaurant delivering top quality dishes, service and selection of wine. Family run, food shop and great Mirto - a must try. The menu highlights are pork, zichi and any desserts! Child friendly, romantic and good for private functions, groups and work due. Recommend...to book in advance. Lovely couple tables ‘in the cave’. Romantic atmosphere and good ambience. Great spot for an aperitivo, summer outside dining and royal experience. Silvia and Massimo are simply Awesome! Great gem, great people, great food. Top top top. A must try.More

We followed TA review and were quite happy with our experience here. The place was nicely decorated with a small canal passing by at the back. It was a bit difficult to find as the sign was rather discreet but the GPS address was correct....Staff was very helpful and spoke some English. My husband had a suckling pig and it was too much we had to take a doggy bag! I had a tuna steak which was too big to finish. It was nicely prepared. We were early (around noon) and by the time we left the place was rather full, primarily occupied by locals. A good sign. There were also tables to sit outside along the pavement. The restaurant also sells some local speciality and wine. If you are in town, it is worth a try.More

We decided to try this restaurant and we are really happy we did it. The food is really good, delicious and the plates very nice. The place is small but very warm. The staff is really super kind and professional. Both the owner and the...waiter always with a smile. The Sardegna cuisine is worth trying it. For sure we will be back to this lovely restaurant. We highly recommend it.More

We had a family lunch at this restaurant. The food was extremely fresh, well tasting and innovative. The Sardinian wine was a suggestion from the waitress and we were more than happy with it. Deserts perfect. What we enjoyed most was the family atmosphere, hospitality....We had the chance to meet the chef in person after lunch and congratulate and thank him for hosting us. Five star recommendation, this was a perfect restaurant experience as per definition.More
