We arrived early evening to s beautiful quaint restaurant. The restaurant was fairly quiet having only opened 1/2 hour earlier. We were promptly seated by a friendly waitress. Bread and oils were produced and our order taken. The food was outstanding along with the service. Within 1/2 an hour of arriving the restaurant was full and people were queuing for... More

This extremely popular restaurant is hard to beat on value for money. A fabulous selection of Italian dishes (pizza, pasta and seafood) all looking very tempting. For us the pizza was great, freshly cooked and hanging of the edge of the plate at around €7 to €8 each. A good wine selection, although did not get to the desserts due... More

This backstreet trattoria in the old town was recommended by the UK national newspaper, The Telegraph, amongst others. No outside tables, just a low vaulted, atmospheric three room restaurant. The swordfish carpaccio has been recommended already by several reviewers and I add mine here. It is so good that when we went back, we had it again. I had the... More

I had there great Spaghetti ai ricci di mare meal. The meal was prepared to the perfection. One of the best pasta dish I have ever had. The house wine (the Sardinian one) was good and just 2€ for ¼. The service was good. The only one negative point I can see are the cramped tables like sardine.

A lovely, small place - albeit slightly claustrophobic - at least the room in which we were seated. Nonetheless, the staff was very pleasant and the gnocchi and pizza with sardinian sausage which we were served were of generous portions for a low price. Although very tasty, we weren't able to finish our plates!

Reading many reviews from Tripadvisor I was curios to try out this restaurant. It's located near the wall of Alghero center. You do need to book a table in advanced because it's so popular. You will find well cooked and genuine sardinian dishes. I tryed the smoked salmon as starter and the the fabuluos swordfish al forno. Served with an... More

Dining out is never just about the food, it's the wholesome experience. We can't judge the food - we never got the chance to taste it - but the owner needs to learn a lesson or two in hospitality. We came by without a reservation and were told to come back in 30 minutes. We went for a drink at... More

Came here as a bit of a random punt as the more well known places along the bastions had a queue of an hour of more by the time we showed up in the evening, so headed down the side streets and came across Al Vecchio Mulino, which serendipitously had a free table for us. And we couldn't really have... More
