Traditional Sardinian dishes well prepared with high quality local products. Service was a little unorganized but friendly and competent when they showed up. Authentic cuisine.

Just one waiter working when we were there. He was friendly and welcoming. Quaint interior, stone walls decorated with pots...More

Service was so slow, that you could die waiting for your food. Food was average. I wouldn't recommend this place.
