Fodor's Review

Family-run since 1988, this local spot is packed nearly every night. The dining area is rustic with terra-cotta flooring, brick pillars, straw-base chairs, and a wood-burning stove. The service, presentation, food, and wine list are all exceptional, and only the freshest of local meats and cheeses are served. Orchestrated by chef Francesco Nanu, the menu features grilled tuna, rosemary lamb, glazed pork, and might include such delicacies as cordedda con piselli stufati (lamb intestines on a bed of snow peas). Everything is made from scratch, including the pizza, the pasta, and ice cream that's dribbled with honey. The daily menu is a very good deal.
