The fish was so fresh and beautifully prepared. Listen to the specials before you decide. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

This restaurant while looking atmospheric and inviting and s very ordinary. The menu sounds great however, the six of us ordered quite varied dishes and found them to be very ordinary and pricey

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry your experience has not been good. But, trust me, my restaurant is not a "Tourist Haven", because most of our clients are locals not turists. Anyway, I hope will be better for you next time, hope to see you again. More

Maybe our expectations were too high from the rave reviews here and in Lonely Planet etc. but Antica seemed no different to many other places and we ended up rather disappointed. The service was good, the house wine was nice and ambience was fine. The grilled sea bass was much too dry though and, like many places in Cagliari, the... More

Book in advance as they are well known and you may not get a table. Waiter suggested mixed apetizers and that was a great suggestion as they were excellent!

This place is definitely worth a visit, it was recommended to us and is beautiful inside, serving excellent Italian food at a fair price. Why only the 3 stars? Well, I think we had bad luck that evening, two major faults: - we asked for a 15-20 minutes delay to let our antipasti go down, but the main course arrived... More

We had a great experience in this Restaurant during our trip to Sardinia. Great 3 course lunch. The main course consisted of a seafood platter which was great. All in all highly recommended.

Good food, nothing exceptional. Prepared in an appetizing manner, served with a smile. The bass was simply grilled and served with lemon on the side: the taste was awesome. The antipasti were very tasty. Toward 9pm, the restaurant was absolutely packed. Reservations recommended.

not bad, but typically tourist area, very different from the standards that we have known in different villages of the island, where, in informal situations, we tasted the real gastronomic flavors of Sardinia. A nice environment

Thanks Sir for you comment, we are happy that you had a good experience with us. Yes, we are located in a typicall tourist area, but, trust me, we serve the typicall south Sardinia cooking. I know it's different from other villages, because every village has it's own cooking style and it's flavours. Come back soon. More
