When we arrived at the parking spot, we were immediately invited to come in by a friendly waiter. This place looks very nice from the outside and inside aswell. Our pizzas, deserts and espresso's were delicious. This place deserves a solid 10.

We ate there several times in Alghero and it became our favorite place. The food is delicious, and the staff very firendly. Stylish interior if you prefer to eat inside, but informal and nice outside. Definitively value for money.

I ate risotto with bacon and mozzarella and my boyfriend ate raviolis. We were both really pleased with the food. Also service was really nice and restaurant was beautiful inside. I would definately go again, this time we ran out of time.

Our skilled chefs have the expertise to delight even the most demanding of palates, thanks also to the quality of the ingredients and the variety of the menus. The traditional cuisine of Alghero - based on seafood dishes such as "aragosta alla catalana" (Catalan-style lobster) and other delicious Mediterranean fish recipes - always features prominently. The excellent food is complemented by the finest wines Sardinia has to offer, which are renowned for their quality right around the world.
