Popped in here for a quick lunch on our last day in alghero. Disappointing after the many amazing culinary experiences throughout the previous week. The pizza we ordered was fine, tasty enough and filled us when hungry. But the service left a lot to be desired. The staff (all of them!) just seemed so miserable to be there. Lots of attitude and cursing at each other. All other tables offered their bread and olive oils (this is what the cover charge is for) but we were not. Had to take olive oil from an adjoining free table. Also noticed bread left on other unoccupied tables with flies landing on it before customers sat at the tables. There are far better and nicer places to eat in Alghero for the same price if not less. Personally I’d avoid this place and seek better elsewhere.

I frankly don't get the negative reviews. Sardinian restaurants rarely feature attentive service and judging food from non-regional dishes (such as chicken escalope or lasagna) is misleading.
"Ramblas" is better than Alghero's average despite being located in a quiet area (15 mins' walk from the centre). Baked fish is not recommended ("45 minutes at least" according to the waiter) so I opted for the grilled sea bream. Decent and fresh, very limited dressing. Fries were a bit below par.
Other friends were very happy with their paella (large portion, even for 2 people) and linguine with scampi. We paid 122 euros for 5 mains and a side, including 3 bottles of water and 1 of beer.
It sounds pricey but that's Alghero's average.

In conclusion, set lunch menu is better value (around 15-20 euros per persons for 2-3 courses) but you will miss the better food options (e.g., liquirice is also used for a main course so go try it!)

Popped in for lunch after being at the beach. Great location and nice restaurant but my lasagne was a a bit bland and had a plastic taste to it. Shame really!

We arrived in Alghero in the afternoon and we were looking for the closest place. We found Ramblas which was a good choice. We ordered two pizza which was great. The tomato sauce was made from real tomatoes and tasty. Pasta was thin and crispy. Tiramisu was not so good but ok.
