caught seafood with as much wine and water as required.
Via Principe Umberto 76 - 079 983 353.
This popular restaurant/pizzeria is a good choice for al fresco dining. In addition to the
main low-vaulted dining room there is an outdoor terrace
on the piazza opposite.
3. Al Vecchio Mulino
Via Don Deroma 3 - 079 977 254.

unassuming entrance to this inexpensive restaurant leads into a vaulted and atmospheric
dining area. Friendly staff serve from the excellent pizza/pasta based menu.
4. Trattoria Cavour
Via Cavour 110 - 079 973 8479.
Trattoria Cavour is located on the street of the same name, set a few yards from the old town ramparts.
The small comfortable dining room is a good place for savouring the selection of Sardinian meat and fish specialities
5. Al Tugari
Via Maiorca 113 - 079 976 772.
The literal translation of this restaurant name is "hovel"
which today is somewhat ironic given the attractive surroundings of the old building.
Spread over three floors the menu contains high quality examples of current Mediterranean and Catalan influenced cuisine.
Via Maddalanetta 4 - 079 979 77.
This restaurant/pizzeria has great views over the marina from an outside balcony (additional charge) in addition to a roof terrace which is open in the summer.
The location does mean higher than average prices.
