This is a very busy restaurant probably because it's good value especially in this area, food is ok, nothing special but it's a good place to take kids as there's something for everyone on the menu.

Read the reviews on trip advisor and decided to get a taxi from the Hotel and try here. Hivaoa seemed very busy which was encouraging and we were given a seat on the terrace upstairs and outside, but we were constantly having to wave the flies away from the food which was really annoying. We only had olives to start... More

I think expectation of something top range with red carpet service has led to disappointment with other people in the past. The service is with a tiny flicker of a smile and some of the waiting staff do seem to display a hint of pretention and arrogance but I put this down to the location right near the marina in...

We fell over this place whilst driving around Porto Cervo on a wet and stormy evening, so went in cold having not seen any reviews. It was busy given a sailing competition but Ana found us a dry and cosy table and recommended a lovely local wine to get us started. My food was wonderful - the lobster linguine is... More

Regular food, normal service. It has a parking space which is nice in the area. Not very traditional, if you're looking for the typical Italian restaurant.

Not a bad place at all. The staff were attentive, and the food was of pretty standard fare but not bad either. Quite a few wasps about (but they seem universal in the area) and the ambience had some charm although closer inspection revealed the terrace was decorated mostly with plastic plants and hedges. Compared to other venues in Porto... More

Really hot day. Found this place open and recommended by friends. Great choice. Service was excellent . Friendly and professional. The meat balls were good, the squid in spicy red sauce was excellent, with the veal tonnato just letting the side down. Personally I like the sauce with more tuna. Felt good when we left.

Mediocre food, poor service, lives on its own hype, sorry. Was expecting more after reading the reviews.
