Ma daily catch fitch was good. My partner ordered gluten free pasta with sea food and I have to say it was nothing I would be tempted to eat a second time. The coffee was great, service as well and free wi-fi a good advantage...More

What a disappointment. This is a national disgrace. The tourist bureau should shut the place down. How do you serve a caprese salad with inedible, unripened, refrigerated tomatoes?! In Sardinia? The breadbasket of Italy? The food was exceptionally bad. They served a vegetarian ravioli that...More

This place is a little up from the typical restorantes in town. It has good wines and supposedly good food but we were unlucky. We were there on a quite night but had to wait very long for our meals to arrive. The corses were...More

All we wanted was a ticket to the island of maddalena, but after hearing the crunch of the pane carasau from the waiting line, there was no holding us back. From the tartare to the tarte fondante, each course was a delight and we would...More

Yum! Hubby and I had a lovely meal here. It is a small, family run (I think!) restaurant with excellent service and a wonderful seafood menu. We enjoyed starters of squid & avocado and a prawn risotto - both excellent - and both had beautifully...More

This part of Sardinia is expensive due to the Porto Cervo effect, but the Trip Advisor & Lonely Planet reviews of this restaurant are bona fide in our opinion. Very tasty and authentic "Sarde" food, well presented and truly excellent service. Thoroughly recommended

I will start with a positive: the 25 euro mixed fish platter was sensation. Gigantic prawns, beautifully fresh squid and octopus, sea bream and langoustines. And the portion was probably enough for 3 people. This was superb eating. But the black spaghetti with sea urchins...More

After a week in high-priced and pretentious restaurants, C'era una Volta presented us with the best dish of the week. Perfect grilled squid on avocado. Just a bit of the best olive oil, an idea of thyme and lemon. The prime were equally flawless. Home...More

Terrific service with imaginative but authentic dishes. The seafood hors d'oeuvres are almost too much, but just have to be ordered! Real al dente home made pasta with seafood ragu a hit. Reserve weekends.
