Very nice restaurant in the historical center. Might not be in your way, as it is located on a small street, but it worth a visit (anyway, the historical center is not that big). It is close to to Il Duomo and Pallazzo Ducale.
We ordered wild boar and pastas, all excellent. They also prepared something off menu for the child. For desert we had caramelized pear and ice-cream - exceptional. The service was also excellent and the prices were quite good.
I will come back for sure if I will return to Sassari.

We went in Vecchio Mulino for a business
Dinner in two. First of all I have to say they reply any kind of message you send, Facebook phone etc. then we found a table. It's a place very nice from an historical point of view and rich of interesting books. We ate starters and a main course. Please taste the one with fennel and lemon. I wish I could eat two!!!

First day in Italy / Sardinia and had to get some proper Italian food. Everything tasted extremely good. The people were very friendly. It was not crowded but I went there very early. Would recommend this to anyone visiting Sassari.

Reading reviews of places to eat can be confusing. Comparing good to bad. Wondering who the reviewers are etc. Il Vecchio Mulino is a place, where if you are not from Sardinia , you simply must come. Rarely will you find a kitchen/chef with such a light touch. It's almost magical. There's no gusto here rather layers of surprises that will thrill the diner. Typical Sardinian then typically Sassari should cause a stampede to their door. Marvellous waiting staff also who were as much of the food as the chef was in explanation. Trust me and just go...

Our hotel recommended this hidden gem south of the car park in Sassari. The interior is welcoming and comfortable and contains the remains of old mill for which the restaurant is named. As far as we know, there is NO written menu. The meal begins with a curated assortment of antipasti (about 5 dishes to share), all with fresh and homemade products. It is all clearly explained. Then a choice of primi or secondi, depending on what the diners want. We had two versions of culurgiones (local pasta filled with potatoes and cheese), which were superb. We were too stuffed for secondi (entrees), but made sure to try sebadas (a Sardinian pastry filled with cheese and topped with honey). The service was friendly and delightful. A great dinner.
