The second-largest island in Mediterranean after Sicily, Sardinia serves up a lovely blend of sea, sand and history. Thousands of nuraghe (stone buildings) dot the landscape, proof that people have been enjoying the lovely climate here for millennia. From posh Costa Smerelda in the north to medieval Alghero in the northwest to the lively capital of Cagliari in the south, and with many picturesque towns and unspoiled sandy beaches in between, Sardinia’s got a little something for everyone.

Well worth booking this lovely farmhouse. 10 courses and as others have said go small and slow as they arrive. It is impossible not to suffer a food coma after your visit. The host was charming with a smile and great explanation for each dish. His home made limoncello is gorgeous. At €30 a head including wine and liqueurs this is excellent value for money. The suckling pig is delicious. Basic but charming, homely decor set in lovely grounds. Busy even though off season. The taxi there and back was more expensive than the meal!

We revisited this agriturismo after our first visit two years ago, and were delighted by the consistent quality. Seasonal produce, with star billing for the sweetest ricotta of spring, made for a great, relaxed evening meal, which also included very good prosciutto, vegetables, wild asparagus fritters, and perfectly cooked lamb and pork. Be sure to book ahead; four visitors who came in were reluctantly turned away. Sardinians are noted for their warm hospitality, but the proprietors explained to us that they could not serve them because they prepare everything carefully: if you book for 8.30pm for nine people, as we did, the food will be on your table at that time. It was; and it was varied and delicious. A special mention for the dessert of seadas made with ricotta filling, and not the usual cheese filling - delightful,light, indeed one of our group who does not like goat's milk products tried one, pronounced it exquisite (it did not taste "goaty"), and promptly asked for and was cheerfully served a second. Donato and Francesca guide this family business, from cooking to serving, and all present at our table enjoyed this meal, very much indeed.

Countryside farm-restaurant offering home-made traditional food. Everything we offer is prepared with the farm products (wheat, cheese, meat, eggs, ecc.). Set menu.
We came to this place for dinner with family during our holidays in Sardinia and we had a memorable time. Food is all organic, genuine, fresh and absolutely delicious. The service is friendly and impeccable and the atmosphere is so romantic ... It s one of those gems no to be missed.

Our company is the ideal place for those seeking unspoiled nature in a territory rich in forms bizarre and suggestive, Symphonies, colors and sensations that are completed in the most courteous hospitality. Ertila is located on the plateau of Bitti, about 900 meters above sea level, at the foot of Punta sa Woman walking distance by mountainous nature reserves of Crastazza and Tepilora. In the territory that has characteristics environmental high interest, viv ono the Sardinian partridge, the Sardinian hare, wild boar, marten, the cat Wild and there the golden eagle nests (which can be viewed while hunting). In the spring the environment is enlivened with multicolored blooms, including that of the beautiful peony.
We were recommended to park outside this Agriturismo at the start of our walk. We let them know that we would be back three hours later for lunch and, after a spectacular walk through the forest, we arrived back at 1pm not really knowing what to expect. We were overwhelmed! We started with antipasti consisting of ham and salami with caponata and onion relish; then came a huge plate of pasta in meat and tomato sauce with cheese; this was then followed by roast lamb (a huge platter full) with salad; then cheese, fruit and pastries. The meal was washed down with a litre of water and a litre of local red wine (not all drunk, I'm afraid to say!) with a glass of Mirto and a coffee to finish with! We were full!! And the cost? €25 each and worth every penny! Do find an excuse to visit!!

My wife and I went to have an ice cream during the fireworks to avoid the queue. It is really difficult to choose flavours. The staff suggestion were extremely welcomed. And excellent!!! The "calda" was really fresh and fragrant. The ice cream is really top! And not expensive if compared to Northern Europe. Highly recommended!!!

Following an enthusiatic recomendation, we booked dinner at the Agriturismo Nuraghe Murtarbo. Despite knowing the area around Lago SantaLucia quite well, wewould not have found the place without the few sparse signs along the unmade roads that lead to this idyllic place. The farm is quite big but most of the animals are sited within a few hundred metres of the farmhouse and it was lovely seeing the animal collection and a display of milking before settling down to dinner. I was looking forward to the mailaletto and pecora that were being roasted on the spit, but there were about 10 dishes to enjoy before the meat was served. Many of the dishes were specialities of nearby villages and everything was delicious. Following the meat were sebadas and mirto and there was plenty of a very gutsy Cannanou to wash down the meal. The family are charming and made us feel part of the family.
Food, aperitif, wine, water, Digestif and coffee was just 28 euros.
2 valuable tips. 1 Google maps does show the property if you go to maximum zoom just south of the lago Santa Lucia.
2. Wear something with an expanding waist!

Not many worlds to describe this little panini and salad bar in the middle of nature in the beautiful national park of Caprera! The location is wonderful with plenty of seats and also many relaxing hammocks. The panini are great and huge with so many different choice, some of them are very particular and interesting. They serve the food directly to your table or hammock and they are pretty quick. The prices are just great also considering the so touristic place. Best place in Caprera to rest and have a marvelous lunch after a plain morning of sea and sunbaths!!
