My wife and I had read some rather negative reviews about this restaurant prior to going to Cagliari. We found ourselves in the square one evening and liked the idea of eating outside and sat down. We were served promptly and had our food within...More

We love to have our dinner outside and this restaurant had lots of alfresco seating available in the main square. Cuisine was OK. We had the calimari and frites. A bottle of La Scala Vermentino di Sardegna seemed a bargain at only 15 euro and...More

A total ripoff wondered why there was no one there? Now we now. Staff where hopeless and food portions a joke. Stay away

An American Bar and pizzeria with a la carte menu too. Wonderful location with huge throng of people waiting for tables on a Saturday night. Excellent value for money even if the waiters are hopelss and slow - there is no rush as it is a great locaton from where you can watch the nightly "PASSAGIATA"
