Summary

“So much better than other Italian Johnny (Giovanni?)-come-latelies” – this “always fun” institution of 20+ years’s standing continues to combine “incredibly good-value” Sardinian fare with particularly “lovely” service and an “always lively (if rather loud)” style.

Summary

“Newcastle’s most reliable choice for a cheap night out in a group!” – this “bustling” and “noisy” institution has “the friendliest service ever”; it “steers clear of pizza”, serving “proper” Sardinian grub (pastas, fish dishes, cakes, coffee) at “cheap” prices.

Summary

“A bit of a legend locally” – a visit to this “really buzzy” Sardinian café can be “quite a whirlwind experience”, but “their good manners would put the Ritz to shame”, and the “cheap and cheerful” fare offers “top value”.
