Good melon & ham, sardines were fine, seafood lasagne was unremarkable, squid was average (at best) - annoyingly at least 3 members of staff were constantly not very subtly walking past, watching & making us feel uncomfortable. all this wouldve been easier to stomach if...More

Good quality food and service. But not comfortable sitting outside. A bit overpriced... I wouldn't recommend to have the owner to bring you food as starters at his choice. Very good, but too pricey.

Nicely presented food in a friendly atmosphere and atmospheric rooms (inside). The waiters showed great humor and made the best out of the congested situation and our kids not being the tamest ones. Very positively noted was the vegetarian menu. Generally the food was typical...More

Restaurant looks nice but that's it! Staff unfriendly, prices for food and drinks very expensive, portions small and not worth it! We ate better in a Snackbar and that's not a joke! Unfortunately I need to give 1 Star....for me 0 Stars! Not recommend it!

Spending 2 weeks in Castelsardo meant that we would sample various restaurants but after running into Francesco after 11 PM on our evening of arrival, we realized we found someone special. He brought us to his favorite after-work hangout for a meat and cheese plate....More
