“Best meal we had in Sardinia”

On our last day in Sardinia it was raining. The car was packed and we’d checked out of our apartment and it was lunchtime. We decided to drive for a bit so we looked for a town close to Olbia looked for the best restaurant in TripAdvisor and called to see if they had a table. They did, no problem. One of us was a veggie. Again; no problem. We had a six year old; great! No problem at all. We want to eat in half an hour; of course, we’ll get your antipasti ready. They explained it was a set menu, no choice (the best kind of menu in my opinion) and we set off in the car in anticipation. As promised, our first four plates were waiting for us on arrival and oh they were superbe! Zucchini ‘spaghetti’, aubergines with cheese, pepper bruschette and mushrooms with cauliflower. So far so good. Our son’s pasta pomodoro was declared ‘the best pasta I’ve ever eaten’ (in all his six years, his Mum was upset it had trumped her pasta pomodoro) and we were cordially encouraged to try it (it was a pretty tasty plate of pasta). Then followed four more small plates, more porcini, and other delightful veggies, all delicious. We then had risotto which was cooked to perfection, oozy and moist, but with structure to it, and slightly al dente; superbe. By this time we were full, but we still had roast pork and seasonal veggies to go for the meat eater, the meat falling off the bone and moist, and rice and grilled vegetables with a sauce for the vegetarian, again well cooked and perfectly seasoned. Then there was the little matter of the chocolate torte. Crisp pastry and moist delightful filling; despite being too full to even contemplate it before it arrived, my wife ate the lot. Something she never does, ever. Coffee, blueberry liquore and cantucci followed, before we reluctantly had to leave to brave the weather. If there was one thing I would have changed, I would have got a bottle of better wine, there were plenty of decent bottles on offer but with the wife sticking to one glass and me on driving duty, it would be a shame to have left it largely undrunk. The house offering that day was perfectly drinkable, but the quality wasn’t up to that of the food. All in all, the best meal of our trip, even more so given it was a spur of the moment decision. I’m really glad it rained; had it been sunny, we’d have gone to the beach and missed out on a truly great lunch.

We had a very enjoyable meal here. At the start of the mushroom season there was a special funghi menu but we stayed with the main a la carte menu and enjoyed some delicious hare with olives in a very rich sauce.
Very conveniently located on the main road through the town with parking on the road outside.

Visited the restaurant twice during our stay in Sardinia and both times the food was absolutely superb.

On the first visit we chose our own dishes and on the second tried the set menu. Both were absolutely delicious and very good value for money.

The service too was excellent and I would recommend this restaurant to all.

This is an excellent restaurant in a small, sleepy village. We went here three times in the week we spent in Sardinia. fresh pasta’s, very nice rabbit stew and a very big wine selection.
The staff is very friendly and offer excellent service

Good food, mushrooms top quality! It’s not Sardinian typical restaurant but you can appreciate Italian receipts. Medium price, for a selection of appetizers, main course and dessert is about 35€ (no wine). The waiters start with fixed menu but if you prefer à la carte, you need to ask when you book it.
