The trattoria is located on a beautiful and busy space - great to watch people walking by. The waitresses were nice, the food was kind of boring and average. We had some okayish appetizers with salami and ham, main courses were the traditional Gniocchetti with...More

Went on spec based on Lonely Planet reference. Fantastic food, friendly, old-fashioned courteous service from owner and a very good waitress. Food quality, quantity and presentation top class. It is a simple, small, unpretentious restaurant but beautifully decorated with vaulted ceiling and modern paintings on...More

We lunched here - delicious deep-fried skewers of courgette, squid and prawns; pasta with vongole; seadas (local pudding made of mild cheese in pastry, deep-fried and then served with local honey). Charming service, pretty outside terrace and cool air-conditioned interior. Very good value for money.

We were hosted by a local businessman: we had the 6 sea food starters all very fresh and needing nothing to add, so delicious and natural test. To follow we had 1/2 portions of a fish soup and spaghetti alla bottarega. Amazingly delicious!

Don't think about "nouvelle cousine" when you step into this tiny, obscure, door in the old part of Sassari. This place offers traditional local seafood dishes, perfectly executed, essential and very tasty. This doesn't mean that the ambiance or the service is shabby or too...More

Been to Sassari while returnig from the weekend trip to Stintino and luckily we stumbled upon this great tratoria. First we stopped in a restaurant on the main square, just a couple of minutes from this tratoria. When we entered this first restaurant it was...More

I have been to La Vela Latina about one month ago. As a starter, I had Banderillas (fried zucchini, squid and shrimps), which were average, I would say ok-ish. As a main, I instead ordered spaghetti with bottarga (mullet eggs) and clams. The pasta was...More
