There are many reasons that you need to get to this place as quickly as possible. But the main reason is to experience the flavors and the spirit of Sardinia. The chefs here bring not only the flavors and traditions of the culture to their kitchen but also a healthy type of cooking. The food here is cooked with extra virgin olive oil which means that every patron benefits. We don't even know where to begin when it comes to menu choices but if we have to come up with a couple, we would say sample the lamb shank or the house ravioli. Get ready for a great environment as well.

Fantastic food and some of the most amazing menu choices means that you are going to have to put some brain power into making your choices. But in the end, you really can't make a bad choice. There are great and important options when it comes to where you sit as well. There is a kid friendly area and then there is a very cozy bar area as well. They have their own pizza oven and they offer a menu item called firebread. It is exceptional in terms of texture and flavor. They also offer a wide variety of drinks including everything from lattes to a variety of mimosas.

Just wait until you get a look at this menu where you will have some great options including fresh, wild caught seafood, vegan and vegetarian dishes, and some of the best tropical drinks. The atmosphere is very low key, spacious and a place where you will be instantly relaxing. The pulled pork is out of this world and you will walk out not only satisfied, but grinning from ear to ear.
