Food was cold, not what we were expecting. Lobster was chewy and overcooked and did not taste fresh at all. Will not be coming back.

We happened to spend a night in Cagliari with friends and were recommended this restaurant described as a lobster's paradise. Our expectations were quite high. The fixed menus are probably best option - 6 different offers between 20 and 70 Euro - where fresh fish, shellfish and molluscs are stars and delight sight and palate. We chose the menu € 40 - 6 appetizers, the best: fried aubergines with bottarga and red shrimp; First courses with a sea flavor, scented and delicate tagliolini, superior to a tasty fregola, as main course a large Catalan Lobster, probably the best I ever tasted. House white wine, fresh and sparkling above average and no after night effect., sorbet and liqueurs closing the dinner also noticeable for attention and kindness of the staff. expectations were fully met, an experience to be repeated when returning to Cagliari.

..just because it was not possible to give zero.
we got seated around 9 pm without reservation. they said they would place in the prive.
Basically a spare corner on the way to the men's toilet (with additional smell of the toilet in the hot italian summers), separated by a dirty and greasy glass door, facing the lower part of the restaurant.
There is just the place for a 2 person table and a little side table 20x20 to put the dirty plates and the bread.

We got the offer of the menu and we decided to take it. They brought us a white house wine and a little bottle of still water (we didn't have the chance to choose).
We decided to take one antipasti to share. We got served 4 mussles (cooked since few days and stone cold) and other not worthy fish. Low quality, not fresh, all is prepared way in advance. You can have better at your office canteen.

We asked to leave after and not continue with the menu and we got a bill for 44 Eur.
With that money you can have amazing food right down the street. Fresh and tasty.

The service, expect one of the guys, was bad and annoying as well (not used probabily to handle complaints).

And if you are wondering, I'm italian and lived in Cagliari my whole life.

Horrible, way too overwhelmed service. Avoid this tourist trap! We waited for more than one hour at 23:00 to have a table, the owner and some waiters told us repeately "2 minutes more". We had to leave after one hour of waiting, hungry as hell. Unacceptable for a restaurant with such a reputation

We had dinner here and it was 'ok', yet we cannot subscribe to all of the great amazing reviews here. Alas opinions vary. We had the number 2 and 5. The starters are a bit of an acquired taste. The lobster was yummy but small (better take 2x#5 if you like lobster). The bread was stale but this seems to be more common around these parts. Included in the price is an (almost) abundance of tasty wine (prosecco), a dessert, coffee and with that good value for money. All and all, ok meal but we've had better in Cagliari.
