Went there twice in one week. There are so many tables that when the restaurant full is they have about 300 guests. So you can imagine how that there are many waiters and they make mistakes we ordered green salad and got mixed salad, we ordered zuppa di cotze with tomatoes and garlic and parsley but they brought us marineted cotze and the tisch next to us got our zuppa di cotze. Well it was good but not what we have ordered. We came another day that week again and gave it a chance.... got our zuppa di cotze and we we ordered Radler when we drank it we ordered another bottle but the waiter who said: "sure i will bring it to you straight away" forgot us and havent brought it to us for the next half an hour so we askes for the bill and payed a bit thirsty :-( This restaurant is a nice place but maybe if they do use orderman it wouldn't happen what we have experienced and have seen by the other tables as well many mistakes with the dishes that should be served on some other table. But still the food was OK and the place too.

This is a large bustling, almost chaotic, restaurant that provides a feast for all your senses. From the table surrounded by a local family of 10 to the 4 flabbergasted tourists to the couple with eyes only for each other, there was people watching to be had in all directions. And through these crowded tables, waiters and waitresses twirl with plates laden with mussels, risottos, pasta and pizzas. One appears with a huge fish, pulls up a side table and de-bones it before serving. This was our experience on a one-off evening visit in July and, for an English family abroad, it was an experience different from any restaurant to be found at home and fabulous! Most importantly, the food was also delicious. This place is not trying for a Michelin star, but they served up the best pasta dish I had in Sardinia and a beautiful fresh piece of fish. The staff hustled and bustled, so they didn't hang around to emphasise a personal service, but I found them cordial and professional. So, if you want quiet elegance, this place may not be for you, but for delicious fresh Sardinian cuisine and an experience you won't forget, give it a try!

Very popular restaurant well established in Chia, indoor and outdoor terrace seating available, parking and a children's play area. Fully laid tables, tablecloth and waiter service. No sommelier and limited knowledge of wines and me u with the waiters. Perhaps due to the popularity and since it's probably seasonal staff, service was slow and forgetful on the several occasions we visited. The food was decent.

We went for a late lunch few days ago, we were not really hungry but wanted some Italian calamari before returning to uk.
As it was late I firstly got off the car to ask if it was opened. After being ignored by 4 members of staff, a young woman finally answered my question.
When we sat down, there were only few tables in the restaurant but after a long wait and again the waiters ignoring us I had to get the menus ourselves. We finally managed to order.
The restaurant is quite nice, (I've only seen the outside tables), it's a shame that staff are careless and don't keep it clean, next to our table there was a ball of scrunched paper and a blue plastic bag (impossible not to be seen), when we left was still there!
Our food arrived pretty soon and calamari were delicious but we ordered two main course portions and we only got one plate. We were still waiting for the other portion when we asked the waitress said that they were in the same plate. Since when restaurants serve two main course portions in the same dish????? And the dish was also half full, we basically been charged 30 euro for a portion of calamari!!!
We also ordered tuna with mirto: didn't taste mirto at all, in fact tasted more of a refrigerated leftover and also didn't look appetising.
Swordfish wasn't bad it's a shame that was swimming in oil!
We also ordered a starter portion of octopus with potatoes, they were ok but ....only 2 little pieces of potatoes!
Our desserts 'seadas' were delicious and so was coffee. We paid cash and we got 10 euro less in our change. Was it really a mistake? Not sure after the 'missing' calamari portion!!! Not impressed!!!
