Small, very friendly restaurant, proudly serving Sardinian food. Excellent fish, we loved the swordfish carpaccio and tuna tartare. Interesting wines too. Still don't take credit cards but there is a cash machine immediately outside.

La Nicchia si trova in uno stabile del 1400, in quella che fu la casa di Giovanni da Udine, nel centro della città. Dal 2006 è stato trasformato da bar in piccolo ristorante con esclusività di cucina Sarda e vendita annessa di prodotti tipici. Massimo , Sardo DOC e Silvia Friulana hanno dato vita a quella che è sempre stata la loro passione. Dopo aver lavorato dal 1995 in giro per vari ristoranti in Italia e in Europa hanno creato il loro piccolo sogno .
