Since 2006 Sardinia Enoteca Ristorante has been synonym of Authentic Italian fare. First in South Beach and now in Delray, the restaurant has received great accolades and awards from numerous publications and media, including Zagat. Owners Antonio Gallo and Pietro Vardeu have authentically recreated the ambiance and cuisine of the Italian island that serves as the restaurant’s namesake

Casual yet elegant, the wood-burning oven imparts a smoky impudence to grilled or baked meat and fish. And the open kitchen allows customers to satisfy their curiosity and find out what’s cooking. The menu of rustic dishes includes highlights such as spaghetti bottarga, a traditional Sardinian staple; paella di agnello (lamb); grilled octopus. The salt-crusted branzino, is a masterpiece, and don’t forget to try the fantastic and lengthy wine list with over 300 labels.

With a delicious menu and a great wine selection Sardinia Enoteca Ristorante offers a great dinner experience wor

Other reservation was early in the evening. Our waiter presented some specials that were not on the menu. Although there was no one in the restaurant other than two other tables, it took over 30 minutes after ordering to tell me they were out of the special I ordered. By that time everyone else at our table was being served.

Happy hour is only at the bar but not at the table as per stricltly roule imposed by the bartender in spite there was only two tables at the time I had the dinner. Nothing friendly and really without sense. I cannot understand this policy.
Waiter service was awesome.

certain things here are good, it was out first time there. i loved having a meat and cheese assortment for an appetizer, i had fish special, i liked it.
my wife ordered eggplant parm appetizer for main, it came out burnt, skin in egplant tough, , she did not eat it, did not send it back. would not order it again. our server chip was nice guy, took good care of us. i would try aghain, or go for a glass or 2 of wine and some meats and cheeses at happy hour. they have a nice wine list, although i usually bring my own.

Menu and food quality were outstanding. Made us feel like we were in Italy with the quality of the ingredients, careful presentation and authentic cooking. Our waitress was excellent and helped us choose a suburb Sardininian wine to compliment the food. Meat and vegetables were cooked in a wood oven, which gave them a depth of flavor much appreciated. Pasta was home made and not over cooked. After eating a greatly over-priced mediocre meal on Atlantic Avenue the night before, this was a welcome experience that restored our faith in South Florida dining.

I love this place, although it’s kind of a special occasion spot for me. My son, who is a real foodie, insists on dining here when he visits. The mozzarella tasting platter is exquisite and millefeuille awesome. Joe is a terrific server. Enjoy!

Excellent food & service. Nice atmosphere, & bar is nice & comfortable.
Only thing that I would recommend, that the piano player lower the

I was served a BAD piece of Branzino, filled with many many small fish bones. Our server was mostly absent are very noticeable compared to other servers working that night. We will certainly go back, knowing the building can do much better- everybody has an off night once in a while.

Had reservation for Valentines Day. You would think they would treat it special. The place is nice but, on this particular day, poorly managed. Perhaps not enough servers for the amount of people. Our waiter Sebastian was a nice man but appeared overwhelmed. We were seated at 7pm, ordered a nice bottle of wine. It was not until an hour later that the bread was served, with no apology for the delay. My salad arrived BEFORE the appetizer. My food was ok, my wife enjoyed her’s. The manager, Esther, came by our table to ask how everything was going. I said “not very well”, and it seemed this was not a discussion she wanted to have as she just smiled and went on to the next table. My wife and I had to laugh at this but I’ll give the manager the benefit of the doubt. Maybe she didn’t hear me because the place is so loud. We left to have our expressos & desert elsewhere. I will note that they have a very nice bar. Nice place for drinks.

We have dined here several times, and have always had a wonderful meal. The food is prepared with great care, and beautifully flavored. Portions are generous, so we almost always have left overs to enjoy the next day. We love the mozzarella tasting plate, and the wine flights are inspired. Best of all is the attentive and smart service, thanks to Joe from Connecticut . He’s the best— always makes us feel welcome, and special, and even remembers what we ordered the last time. One of the most professional servers we’ve ever had, and one of the main reasons we make it a point to eat at Sardinia when we’re in Boca,

Diverse and creative menu. Everything was prepared well and delicious. Music on Saturday night was a bonus. The food was great, really great but the star of the evening was the wonderful, welcoming, caring and personable but not intrusive service. Everyone from the hostess, the bartender, the bus staff and our waiter ( Joe) were accommodating in every way. As a diner, one feels as if the entire staff wants you to enjoy the food and the overall experience.

We recommended Sardinia to our friends who came for a visit. They loved it! From the ambiance to the food and of course the service exceeded our expectations. We started with the sampler platter of mozzarella. Then our waiter recommended the Branzino which was delicious.

The evening started out well at the bar then went stariaght down hill. The service was horrible, we waited 50 minutes for our food which was ok at best. Our waiter Chip was horrible. Rude, inattentive and missing in action. Came and threw the check on the table and left. This was our first experience at Sardinia and we will NOT be back. Unfortunately a pass on this restaurant! Don’t waste you’re time :(

The quality of the food and the presentation are outstanding. Our server Joe was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and provided excellent service. The menu is a mix of classic Italian dishes and Sardinian specialties (Sardinia is a large island in the Mediterranean, second in size to Sicily). Highly recommended!

This was our first visit to Sardinia Enoteca, and we will be back. Located in a nondescript strip center, you would never know by looking from the outside how beautiful it is inside. There is a bar where you can get fresh pizza, and on the other end of the place is a gorgeous bar where you can eat or get cocktails. The place had live music; a guitarist who played pretty lively music. We were seated nearby, which was great. We ordered some cocktails and enjoyed the music as the help dropped off some tasty bread and something like a big cracker type thing. I had some sort of fish (forget what) cooked in paper and it was delicious. My husband had filet mignon and he said it was delicious. Desserts are regular Italian fare, with gelato etc.
All in all, we enjoyed our visit. This place is on the expensive side, so I would say it's more of a special occasion/ not too often type place if you're on a budget.

This place has lovely decor and almost gets it right with the food, but misses the mark. For example, they offer at least 5 different mozzarellas and have a wood burning oven - sound like a home run - But they use a greasy processes cheese on the pizza. The crust was good but a Margarita pizza has mozzarella. Also loose your Spanish guitar guy with the loud canned music. If you find someone who can actually play an acoustic guitar at normal volume that would be nice. The veal was pretty good, only a bit stringy, the sauce was ok, but the veggie side was a pile of mush.

Fiend had delicious papperdelle It was perfectly cooked and sauce was wonderful. Veal milanaise was also great. Octopus carpaccio was well presented and octopus was good but taste was drowned out a bit by dressing.
The food was authentic and delicious but the space was cold jyst tge opposite of authentic. Trying too hard to make a “cool” space and it was not consistent with menu
