I was visiting Alghero with my boyfriend and we read about this place on Tripadvisor. I got surprise that they were making "fainè"(a tipical street food from Sassari that requires high tempersture), so then we tried. We had to wait 40 minutes but then we got the delicious fainè with salsiccia and cipolle. Really good!!

As good as it gets if you want a no thrills pizza experience, which was just what I wanted on my return to Sardinia after a gap of 25 years, this place did not disappoint. The setting is superb, medieval shambled streets and old cellars turned in to eateries, Grottino is far from unique in this town as being like... More

Nice 1 euro pizza slices. What more can you say? If you need a quick refuel it's great but it's not great if you're looking for a restaurant.

Very small place, and sometimes completely packed. But the owners are friendly and you will get a table after a while. The food is really nice, especially the pizzas of course. If you do not speak italian, do not worry, they know you want food even if they don't speak english. No problem!

It's a tiny hole-in-the-wall type of restaurant, that only had locals inside when we visited. We'd been wanting to go the whole week we were visiting Alghero, but it always seemed to be closed, and we never worked out their opening times! However, if you do catch it open, you must order a couple slices of whatever pizza they have... More

This tiny little place is in the old town, down one of the side streets, you could easily miss it as it is just litterally a hole in the wall, but usually there are people standing outside waiting for pizzas!We have been here twice, it has about four tables but these are usually full! There is no english spoken here... More
