We arrived during the Autumn Festival and ate outside at picnic tables as the restaurant was filled to the rafters. What fun eating with the locals and visitors from all over Sardinia. We had beef sandwiches, gnocchi and bolognese sauce with beer and water. Simple but tasty food.

Food was delicious, service is great. I recommend to order a wine from the menu and not the house wine, it wasn't very good... All in all a great experience, thanks!

This restaurant kept us coming every evening. It provides a great variety of great and typical Sardinian food, great wines and even German beer for those who like it. The prices are very reasonable, the atmosphere is nice and staff very pleasant.
