Waiter was super friendly, get there at 7:00pm when it opens and the service will be fast and food is delicious. We have gone 6 times once a year.

Inexpensive, decent food. Not that great. Noticed many items on the menu were frozen, for seafood was disappointing. Staff was friendly and service was fast.

Recommended by a local, this restaurant was a great find, on the way between Porto Cervo and Arzachena. Very affordable (€6 - €10 for pizza and pasta), lively with great service and good food. Would return in a heart beat

We ate here a number of nights on our holiday. Apart from one disappointing meal the rest were excellent and such good value for money. The staff were friendly and helpful and we felt very welcome. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
