Yummy pizza which we took away was prepared in just a few minutes. The pizza base was very tasty and crispy unlike in some other places where it's like chewing a shoe.

The bill was wrong. They tried to add items we did not order. Also the fish charged by weight was miscalculated to increase the price. They claimed that paying by credit card was not possible today since their machine was broken. If you do not want to be tricked do not go there. A bad ending to a dinner of... More

When we got there initially we were told that they had no table available, we asked the two lovely servers if they could recommend another place in Nuoro (which they did very kindly) - while trying to get us the address for another restaurant, a table had just become available - we were sat straight away. The table was right... More

Although arriving on a Saturday night without booking, they managed to give us a table :-) the service was excellent and the food very good. From where I was sitting I could see the people working in the kitchen, it looked very well organised. But the real surprise came with the desert, the semifreddo with orange, honey and pecorino (!!... More

This place was buzzing and a wonderful atmosphere ambiance. Had one of our best dinning experience in sardinia. My partner had the meet balls and pasta, There was not enough meet balls to be honest and lacked tomato sauce but overall a wonderful evening.

I love the quality of the food here, Silverio is a great host and knows how to make his clients happy. My favourite dish is the pasta with the meatballs, the whole menu is actually up to a very good standard. When in Nuoro I always bring my guests over here and it's a real pleasure.

We enjoyed the taster menu of traditional Sardinian food while our two children had pizza. The food was DELICIOUS and we thought six courses with complimentary glass of wine for 40 euros each was very good value. The staff were very patient with us despite our poor Italian. Would highly recommend.

We drove past Nuoro and needed to stop by the city to pick something up. We decided to have dinner here and ended up having dinner here. It was the best meal we had in Sardinia. So good that we actually went back for one last meal in Sardinia enroute to the airport. For the first meal, we ordered the... More
