Food is good (not amazing, but good), but staff is quite arrogant. Does not entirely live up to the hype. Reserve in advance since it is typically fully booked.

The restaurant seemed to be understaffed on this Thursday evening (August), because the waiters were stressed and stressful, and didn't give any concern to customers. The food was good, we had pasta, but not worth returning because the service wasn't friendly in our opinion. Maybe...More

It's not always easy to find a place that does both good fish and meat, this is certainly up there for La Maddalena. Suckling pig which was nicely done and available (normally you have to reserve in advance) was welcome, the polpo carpaccio was up...More

Went there after doing a hasty check for a good feed on TripAdvisor and we weren't disappointed. The prawn and calamari seafood dish was very good and the suckling pig was, well, absolutely massive! It stated on the menu that the suckling pig dish had...More

The staff were great! They were really accommodating for our large group that walked off the street. The food was beautiful. It was all locally sourced and bursting with flavor, all for a very reasonable price. Then the atmosphere was great! Tucked away down an...More

The restaurant was recommended to us by some locals. Indeed, you have to know the location of the restaurant to find it. It is located against the backwall of the church in a small pedestrian street. Seats and tables are outside on the street. The...More

We should have read the early warning signs. The 3 staff on duty were sitting on the restaurant steps as we entered. The TV was on, loudly. We had been told this is a good example of Sardinian cuisine. Luckily, we have enjoyed some other...More

Need to reserve before going, always full. Very copious plates and friendly staff. Not to go if you do not like meat.

Sardinia is an old land. So old that the colors of nature and flavors of the food are fused in a unique and distinctive alchemy. It is difficult to explain, but when one says, "it is Sardinian", everyone understands what it means. We Sardinians have gone and looked everywhere. We went in search for small producers, those that produce fewer barrels of wine, fewer blocks of cheese, fewer varieties of salted meats. We searched for those that are not attracted by quantity because, for them, producing quality food is much more important. Now, their labors of love are on our tables, for you. We found great pleasure in searching out the finest and most authentic products, those that our surrounding lands offer us. We love that we are able to now offer these to you. We will be satisfied if, in the end, you enjoyed the cuisine and atmosphere. This is what we do. Have a wonderful vacation. Il Rifugio Dei Peccatori
