About

This restaurant is permanently closed. 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

We made a reservation on opentable and showed up on Tuesday to find a restaurant permenantly closed, would have been nice if they alerted us before we wasted our time. Sorry they didnt make it. Tough market here.

Wouldn’t go back. Wanted to try something different to celebrate a good day, and we were excited about the Tuesday wine special and great ratings.

It was a red flag when we walked in and there was not one table sat at 6:30.. only a handful of people at the bar.

We had planned to have dinner and wine but left after 2 apps and a cocktail each.

The steak tartar was terrible. No flavor at all. We barely touched it and the bartender didn’t even make note. The Parma Prosciutto with Melon was so poorly done. The presentation. It was literally melon with prosciutto. No olive oil or balsamic... the icing on the cake is we saw a guy who worked there walk in with melon FROM WALMART... really???

$50 and a poor experience. I do not recommend going here and will be surprised if they’re still open this time next year.

Perhaps wee picked a poor day to try Sardinia Enoteca. It was Ladies' Night with the ladies getting free drinks at the bar!?
However, we found the food so-so at best. Waaay too much salt on my Veal Piccata. In fact, several times I crunched (sea?) salt when chewing the veal.
Best part of the experience was our waiter..."call me Joe, Joey, Joseph" He has a very nice way about him.

we love this place. I have taken a different couple each time and everyone loves it. Not your basic Italian restaurant, thank goodness. I do miss the burrata with pesto and prosciutto appetizer as well as the wild boar sauce that has disappeared from the menu. Everything is good.

We have been to Sardinia several times. Food is always good. Service can be lacking, as it was last again on our most recent visit. Although the manager came by and welcomed us - a very nice and appreciated gesture - the waiter didn’t show for 10-15 mins. The manager even ended up getting us our drinks while we were waiting for service so very impressive! When out waiter finally showed, he stared at my wife the entire time he read the specials without looking at me once. We had salad and I enjoy ground pepper. After waiting several minutes, I got a busboy’s attention who said he would bring out pepper once he finished the table he was working on. Unfortunately he never came back. Finally after the waiter did come around and I was able to get ground pepper. I have had this waiter several times before and never bothered to comment, but it is always the same song and dance. Either he has way too many tables or he is just not that good.

Sardinia is outstanding, and truly UNIQUE! Not just ordinary Italian food, but authentic SARDINIAN cuisine -- that you can't find anywhere else! 6 kinds of Hand-made fresh Mozzarella (including BURRATA!), Seafood Paella w Fregola (instead of rice), Lamb Chops, artisan Pizza made in an authentic Italian Wood-burning brick oven, fresh grilled Octopus and wood oven-roasted Branzino are some of the highlights. Plus a stellar wine program, with a great "call your own flight" option. GM Nino is fantastic, and service was great. It's in a lousy location, but this Hidden Gem is worth finding! I give Sardinia my highest recommendation.

We were on vacation and just didn’t want to deal with the traffic and hassles of trying to get a table on Atlantic Ave. So we looked for a local place that looked stylish and served good food. We found Sardinia. It’s in a strip mall, not easy to see, next to a yoga studio. Inside it is stylish and modern.

Our waiter, Chip, was fantastic. He led us to choosing delicious entrees and a burrata appetizer. The cheese was made at the restaurant. Everything was very good. The veal parmigiana, served on the bone, was a new experience!

Great restaurant, away from the tourist traps, delicious Italian cuisine, and a superior waiter! Exactly what we wanted!

I'm very familiar with the other location in Miami so I was excited to see one in Delray. I'm new to the area. Tremendous job! Monday is half price?? The place should be packed. I have no clue why it wasn't as the food and service was great. If you like food put this on your must go places. We ate at 2 spots on Atlantic and it doesn't compare. Seriously try this place.

wonderful creative food. But there s a new menu that eliminates certain very good dishes. They let us order some of our favorites from the old menu. The new menu is kind of dumbed down and eliminates their most creative dishes

If you are in the mood for pasta..the Bucatini Amatricina is not a bad way to go...a tubular pasta .made with full bodied(thick) tomato sauce made with added pork cheeks or pancetta...very filling but delicious.

Worst meal we have had recently. The veal Marsala was very skimpy, the pasta carbonara was salty, the spinach was cold and the steak came well done when I asked for medium. I returned the steak and when I got it back was still not done right. And The restaurant was not busy at all.
