Wine List

The majority of the wines on our list are specially selected from individual Sardinian vineyards. These include a combination of crisp Sardinian whites and the more full-bodied reds. You probably will not have heard of most of them, but don't worry - our staff are here to help you choose the best wine to complement your meal.

Wines are competitively priced, starting at £16.90 for a bottle of Red or White Normanno with most bottles falling in the £15 to £25 price bracket, however, we have recently enlarged our wine list to offer an even more eclectic selection of some of the best wines Italy has to offer, including very special wines like the renowned "Super-Tuscan" Sassicaia - widely accepted as one of the world's greatest Cabernet Sauvignon wines.

After dessert, why not try Mirto, from Sardinia, which is our house liqueur, or one of the many grappas, brandies or Italian liqueurs we have!
