The restaurant Crar’e Luna’s in Chia was recently completely refurbished and transformed into a stylish and elegant venue. Its objective is to represent the hospitality and friendliness of Sardinia. Its building and atmosphere underline many details and shapes that speak of the island. The stone, wood, pastel colors, the music, the garden, the palate … everything here feels Sardinian.
Their original menu includes delicious dishes such as the Lemon perfumed risotto with seafood, Spaghetti with bottarga (cured fish roe) and zucchini flowers and Fresh grilled fish.
Ideally located near Le Dune beach (15 min walk), it is a perfect location for a nice lunch. At night, the elegantly dressed tables in the manicured garden and the moonlight shining over the beautiful sea create a stunning setting for a romantic evening.
Address: Viale Chia 41, Chia in Domus de Maria

Situated in the heart of Pula old town, near the Piazza del Popolo, Su Furriadroxu serves specialities of the local campidanese cooking. The ambiance is very friendly and feels very original – you immediately feel like you are being welcomed in a private home (which it used to be for a long time!). Architecture, furniture, paintings, decorations and even the costume of the personnel remind us of past times.
You can take a seat either in the courtyard amidst the perfumed orange and lemon trees, under the charming loggia or in the living room covered by a beautiful truss ceiling.
Their menu offers a wide range of original dishes made only with local produces. Start your meal with an antipasto or salad, and continue with a yummy specialty such as Malloreddus alla Campidanese (pasta with sausage and tomato sauce), Ricotta and saffron ravioli in cheese cream sauce and orange, pasta bags filled with mashed potato and mild mint in tomato and basil sauce, Suckling pig on the spit (on order), Boar stew in red wine sauce, or Mixed grilled meat, just to name a few.
But don’t leave without trying their divine Sebada (large fried raviolo stuffed with fresh cheese and topped with honey) or Ricotta cheese cream on soft Sardinian biscuits … Heaven!
The restaurant is open in the evenings. Check the menu on the webbsite: www.sufurriadroxu.it

If you are staying in the Chia area, you probably haven’t missed the sign of the Ristorante Bithia, just on the main road to the beaches. Well if you have asked yourself whether you should give them a try, our answer is you should!
This pretty restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and welcomes families with children as well as small groups. Depending on the weather you can eat either in the lovely garden or in the large patio. For cooler days, they also have a few tables inside.
Now let’s talks about their specialties: here is the place where you should try Fregola (a coarse type of couscous) with seafood, fish and meet (e.g. beef ribs) on the grill. On the menu you will also find cutlets, salad dishes and hamburgers. During the summer you can savor the delicious grilled Maialetto Sardo (piglet) which will be served every Tuesday – book in advance! In any case, don’t leave before having tried their delicious desserts, for example the Sfogliata Chantilly (layers of puff pastry with whipped cream and seasonal fruits) and their homemade Sebada (traditional Sardinian fried pastry filled with fresh cheese and honey). Yummmm!
If you have any doubts, just ask the lovely waitress Frederica, which is always friendly and helpful in describing the dishes, even in English.
For bookings contact Ristorante Bithia, Viale Chia 6, 09010 Domus de Maria, Phone +39 0709230069. They also speak English!
