Well worth a visit
Great location among trees, very quiet. Three of us dined there. The service was quick, courteous and excellent. A meal (single course each) for three worked out at ?49 with the house wine. The food was excellent and the house wine was reasonable quality but very good value. We all enjoyed our meals. One had pasta with fresh salmon in cream and we had the pizza delizia (vegetarian). The bread with the meal was fresh and we were served a free selection of small cakes after the meal.
Alghero looks untouched & truly "molto simpatico"
"..if Sardinia stands in sharp contrast to the Italian mainland and Sicily, the city of Alghero on the northwestern corner of the island provides an even sharper contrast to Sardinia itself. And yet, Alghero happily wears its unique mantle as a place apart in this undeveloped and primitively beautiful land. A sun-drenched city of 40,000 people on Italy's second largest island.. The city prides itself on being a more genuine and natural vacation spot than the often-publicized Costa Smeralda, summer watering hole on the northeastern coast and home to many movie stars..As the Algherese remind you, their city is not an artificially created resort, but a city with a long, proud history.."
Quoted from a link to a page I highly recommend
for those wishing to learn about Alghero/Sardegna
"..The main nuraghe is constructed of stone stacked without the aid of mortar and sits in the center of the site.. This nuraghe, and the site in general, is interesting because it exhibits two distinct building styles and is thought, therefore, to have been rebuilt around 880 B.C..It is believed that at the time of the reconstruction the lesser nuraghe, as well as the smaller, rectangular structures that encircle both buildings, were added to the site. Standing in this spot one is overwhelmed by an eerieness similar to that which envelops the ruins of Paestum and Agrigento, and yet it is stranger still. Who were these people? What were they really like? Why did they build these mysterious structures? These are questions that naturally come to mind here, questions that to this day remain unanswered.."
