Reliable fare. Wide range of beers on offer both on tap and in the bottle. Attentive, prompt service. Clean and ambient. The grilled, carved steak with red peppercorns and rosemary comes highly recommended as does the side of grilled vegetables. The amaretto mascarpone dessert was...MoreThanks " dossierCa " for sharing your opinion about us with the trip advisor community.

I live in Quartu since 25 years, and so far this is the best gelateria i ever tried. Lot of toppings and lot of different kinds of delicious icecream-made sweets. It would be Perfect with more places to sit, but you can't have perfection.Try also the frappè, It is very very good! Is not so far from the seaside and not far from the city higstreet .

Pizza Margherita Risto Pub

Reviewed By Sarntmajor - Colchester

Only called in to duck out of the rain and maybe grab a beer on Saturday 6th April.1825hrs and pretty well soaked through myself and partner were looking for a supermarket.(A few hundred metres further on).
I had no high hopes other than a beer.Well we were told the Pizza would be 1900hrs,I left my partner whilst legging it to the Grimm supermarket and a further soaking.
It was worth the effort,the Pizza (I am a huge critic of Pizza) was one of the best I have ever had.I rarely eat Pizza and even more rarely even consider it outside Sardegna (Not even Napoli do pizza as well as Sardegna).
One word of warning,no local or Italian beer to wash it down and .4 beer cost 4 euro.Cost rarely an issue for me but it seemed excessive,not to mention lack of Italian beers?

The owner of our B&B recommended us this restaurant. When we arrived, the restaurant was full, but a friendly waiter that greeted us managed to find a table for two for us. The food at the restaurant was extremely good. I would even say that it was the best seafood we had on Sardinia during our holiday. We were also impressed by their house white whine: it was delicious. At the end, we offered mirto on the house. Great place!

Small and pleasant restaurant with very good food.
Close to our hotel we found this small restaurant wich we visited several times during the week. The service was always nice with a minor language barrier wich never presented any problem. Fish and meat was equaly excelent and the prices reasonable.
Worth a visit if you are in the neighborhood.

Metropizza

Una delle migliori pizzerie nella zona Cagliari-Quartu. Piccola, ma veramente ottima.

Reviewed By sardinius - Cagliari, Italy

But also good meat and starters and in house made exquisite desserts.
Family owned and ran business; the pizza maker is a guy from Naples and he loves his job and his passion for his job is the main reason why it's possible in this restaurant-pizzeria to enjoy one of the best pizzas of Cagliari and its hinterland. Only problem is the location which is a bit secluded next to the local Town Hall of Quartu S.E. (a small town satellite of the main Sardinian town - Cagliari).
The staff almost entirely composed by family members is absolutely kind and professional at the same time.
I'll be honest admitting that this is my first "biased" review for the simple reason that Metropizza is my favorite pizza in the whole province of Cagliari and one of the best I've ever had. The name of the restaurant indicates that clients can choose between the traditionally circular shaped pizza or a rectangular shaped pizza whose length is determined metrically.
Only thing I can't explain myself yet is how they can make it with such a cheap price when compared to all other pizzerias in Sardinia.
But I won't complain for that.

Reviewed By bindiboo - Westchester County, New York

My family and I happened upon Su Meriagu at the beginning of our vacation. We found the Sardinian specialties there absolutely amazing, and went back last night!
Their antipasto dishes are exquisite, especially the smoky eggplant, and tangy courgettes. My personal favorite was the pane fruttau. Oh my goodness, try this. It is Sardinian flatbread, soaked in broth, layered like eggplant parmigiana, with an egg on top. Sensational! The culargiones, (giant ravioli/pierogie) are equally amazing. We ordered these things both times and just about licked the plates clean.
Not done with my rave, the meats! First, I had cinghiale, wild boar, in red wine reduction. Fabulous! This chef knows how to make reductions. The veal was also extremely delicious! One night, they had a special-veal polpettine. These were tiny veal meatballs in a buttery white wine reduction that tasted like my mom's veal spiedini! We cleaned the plate with the local bread, also notable!
We found Su Meriagu reasonably priced, but outstanding! Too bad we aren't staying in Sardinia longer!

A charming atmosphere in the warm Sardinian nights. A sublime escape that mingle synergistically relaxation, fine food and major events. Elegantly set in dreamy atmosphere with crystal clear water and fine golden sand. Let yourself be pampered on the beach by the sea breeze and the sound of the sea. Spoil yourself and relax drinking one of our fresh cocktails while our staff will take care of you, directly from your umbrella. Come treat yourself in our restaurant and try our Chef&apos;s menu: order various type of fresh fish (catch of the day), a fresh and tasty salad , one of our seafood platters selections, or try great classics of the Sardinian cuisine with a modern twist.
