A True Algherese Experience

The best location for dining out in the charming town of Alghero, right on the medieval walls facing the sea during sunset. While there are also other restaurants along the walls, dining here did not feel like a touristic cliche' at all... Osteria Macchiavello & sister restaurant Angedras feel like the true local Algherese experience with attentive staff, authentic dishes and an overall sense of genuine service.

Beautiful start to our Sardinian adventure

We choose Macchiavello as the menu sounded great and were delighted with the quality of food and the kind, professional service. My daughter and I had a great seafood pasta meal which was cooked at our table. The dish was so fresh and aromatic - easily one of the best we had while in Italy. If it's still on the menu don't go past the Sardinian brûlée for desert - it's beyond fantastic. Thank you to all the manager and staff who made our night so memorable enjoyable

Small and genuine with the best view!

I have been living and working in Alghero this summer from April - October so I've had alot ot chances to try several restaurants in Alghero. This is clearly one of the best ones! The food is genuine and you can really feel how every piece of the dish is made with precision. My favourite here is the homemade spaghetti with vongole, and the waiter recommended a great wine for this! Here you can really be sure to get the best recommendations also from the sweet and serviceminded staff, they know what they are talking about. This place is worth every single Euro.

Great view, great seafood

The restaurant was extremely pleasant. You need to book in advance of you want a table. Food was great. Service slow but attentive. Appetizers delicious, mussel soup, fish with tomato salsa-incredible, grilled seafood mix-awesome. Main dishes: fish was really fresh and PERFECTLY made, the only thing-the paella, that looks great and everybody orders it, was really nothing special. But everything else-mmmm. Black shrimp risotto!! Food quality-wise one of the places we've been so far.
