Whilst clearly well established this small, friendly,family run restaurant has recently had the disadvantage of being affected by a new road and a big, ugly restaurant catering to tour buses on the edge of Forza d'Agro. As you drive up into the town it is all too easy to miss 'O Dammuseddu which would be a terrible shame as the food there is excellent. So you don't miss it - as you go up the hill the new road turns to the right; there is a vast restaurant called Il Padrino on the right (all black and red you can't miss it) and 'O Dammuseddu is on the left straight ahead but where there is a No Entry sign! Abandon your car and walk there. It really is worth it. The food is freshly cooked from local produce and is absolutely delicious. You can eat outside on the covered terrace or inside in a small but spotlessly clean restaurant. But be warned - the portions are very generous. We had an antipasti between two of us which was more than enough and we wish we had ordered just one mushroom risotto between the two of us rather than one each. It was such a shame to leave anything as it was so tasty.... but be sure to leave room for a selection of small pastries!

Good impression is a hard job. Guests have to feel being cared of just from the entrance. And this was just the case. As soon as we entered the house, we were kindly advised on how to better park the car, where is the parking meter and how it operates. Nice. The food was really best quality, just like we love: simple, but awesome. In the end we asked for a dolce menu and got two plates just as a compliment! Thank you very much! You are truly number 1!

Amazing food and great service. Had a fantastic lunch here, and if I'm ever in Forza again I'll make sure to come back. The risotto with zucchini and saffron was to die for. Don't be fooled by the lack of view or small locale, this is probably one of the best places to eat in the area. The waiter was friendly and very attentive. Highly recommended.

Good service, great food. A little hard to see from the street, but the atmosphere is kozy and the view is beautiful, tough a little obstructed.
