The best place and best meal I had was at Il Comorano. From the outside it looks quite classy compared to some of the tourist traps nearby. The service was excellent, the food and atmosphere were just superb. Quality fish, prepared and served with attention...to detail.More

We were 3 friends for diner during a nautical trip. I was probably the less lucky w my choices. We had a table by the terrace, nice. We tried (great) gnoccheti and pasta nera (medium) pasta alla bottarga which i am a big fan and...was not that good imo. As main my friends had dentice and I had a calamari and dried tomato dish, all were very good. We shared a crostata (good). Recommended wine was very good, reasonable price. Al in a great experienceMore

Don't understand the rave revues. Our meal (mixed grill seafood and fillet steak) was poor by any standards. One small piece of sea bass was good, otherwise only shellfish and all the shellfish was not fresh, obviously so. The steak wasn't fillet - maybe sirloin....The service indifferent. prices high, quality poor.More

We looked for a fine dining place in the area and we found this surprising affordable high class restaurant that serves local cuisine, perfectly prepared and oh my, the wines, a delight! The staff is very friendly, entertaining and they know their food and wines....The sea food and fish dishes were all amazing. They have one meat dish in each category and even that is made with very good quality local meat. We also tried a few of their desserts with local dessert wines and they were delicious. We’re definitely gonna eat here again if we’re ever in the area!More

The most rude welcome we ever had in any Restuarant.. only for asking if they served pizza.. his response was soo rude and not even encouraging for us to stay, if he approached in a different attitude we would end up staying regardless of the...pizza. for some the owner might come across highly dressed and cool, but be attentive of his rudeness !!!More

The restaurant is in a quiet street with a nice terrace. Food is amazing — we recommend the pasta with lobster, delicious and the signature dish, typical from Castelsardo. Service is really nice, the maître Ambrogio is super pro. Bravo !

I have been to excellent restaurants in rome, milano, venice and other places in Italy and this one deserves to be ranked on top with the best. the quality of the food and service are impeccable. In my viwe, it's all you can ask for...when eating at a family style restauarent in Italy, and it's one of the very few places I would recommend to my best friends, anytime. Especially the Spaghetti with Scampi and the Dentex are worth mentioning, those dishes were a delight.More

This was our most expensive dinner in our three-week tour of Sardegna. It was certainly good, but I had been expecting better after reading several reviews on TA and on other sites and tourist guides. The oil tasting on pane carasau was a nice way...to wait for dishes to be ready. The maltagliati al nero di seppia with fish and rucola and the scorfano in crosta di pane were both good, but not memorable. Somewhat disappointing, all in all.More
