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

I ordered the special : veal bolognese. It was served in fettuccine. The dish was superb. Sirena, the bartender/server was friendly, knowledgeable, professional and efficient. I was surprised that on a Friday night, the restaurant was virtually empty. Perhaps the location, away from the energetic Atlantic avenue is an obstacle. But that aside, the food and service warrant a larger clientele.

There were six of us. We had been there a few times last winter and loved it. Everything was as good as we remembered.
Now there is live music, great as background or to make special requests...which we did. Singer Tony was happy to please
Our server, Mike, was very attentive.

But....please bring back 50% off Mondays! We missed it!

Incredible menu, with delicious perfectly prepared dishes made from fresh, high quality ingredients. Wine flights distinctive and couldn’t have had a more attentive or charming server.
One of our “ musts” when we’re in the area. So many choices easy to make multiple return visits.

Great food and service, but the live weekend music gets a little loud.
Second time I’ve ordered the lamb shank with risotto and it’s a winner.
My friend ordered the skirt steak and it was cooked perfectly.
Really enjoy the food here, and the location avoids the mayhem on the avenue.

Very crowded on this night as it was the last Monday of half priced menu items. The break basket is excellent and I am especially fond of the accompanying whipped cheese. Fir starters we chose the arancini, fabulous, and the artichokes, not so much. Dinners were veal Milanese, veal Marsala, and the lamb shank, which was gargantuan in size. We also had an order of spaghetti with garlic and oil. We washed it all down with 2 bottles of wine.

Love the place. Had a couple of issues last time I went though. Went there for the music, but the singer wasn't singing because someone complained the music was too loud for them while they ate. My food was warm, not as hot as it should have been. Service is very good, food is choice is excellent, happy hour wine. I'll be back.

We used to love this place. However their business motto of bringing the masses by giving deep discounts has finally caught up with them . How on earth can they expect to keep up quality and quantity of quality when they are giving away the house for 1/2 price on the entire menu on mondays plus whatever specials for the rest of the week.
It is a shame cause they obviously don’t know the demographics of the locusts that will come and ravage them and move on to the next place without a second look back.

Sardinia Delray is an elegant restaurant with superbly prepared food. Great happy hour. Though they are busy the noise level, even with live entertainment, acoustically allows for conversation. The staff and management are attentive and knowlegeable.

Great service by Chip. We were pleased to get half priced food and terrific wine specials. We started with arancini , which were a tad different ..couscous around ground lamb! Absolutely delicious.... great bread basket too with a whipped cheese spread instead of butter or oil. Dinners were veal chop Milanese , skirt steak and an order of spaghetti in garlic oil to complement. Portions were large...in fact..just finished a substantial lunch. Entrees were very good.

I have had many excellent experiences at this restaurant in the past. But this evening was a disappointment, at least food wise. Carolina, the bartender/server was great as usual - she is friendly, attentive, and efficient. I ordered a Paella (Sardinian Couscous instead of rice) with lamb and mushrooms. Unfortunately, the lamb was cut into such small pieces that it was virtually indistinguishable from the mushrooms. Even if you picked out individual bites of lamb, it barely tasted like lamb, and was not at all a rewarding experience. Because they were running a Monday night promotion with all food items discounted by 50%, I decided to say nothing, nor ask for the dish to be removed from my bill.

When Carolina saw I had not finished it, she assumed I might want to take it home. It was only then that I mentioned my displeasure with the dish. Without my asking or even suggesting, she spoke to management, and graciously took one glass of wine off my check. I will not be ordering this dish again, but will definitely be returning to the restaurant.

Some good, some bad. First the good: two of us had the branzino, and thought it was very good, though a bit smallish for the price. Also had the Orecchiette with boar sausages, rapini finely chopped, & pinenuts, which was fine, and the Paccheri with veal meatballs and tomato asparagus, which was very good. The four large divers scallops were also very good. Best: there was a small plate of a white spread for the bread basket which I believe was burrata of some type (either that or cream cheese!) - and it was delicious.
The bad: the mussels with fava beans in tomato sauce was likely the worst mussels dish I ever had - the mussels were like spider-web raisins, and the sauce was unbelievably salty. Note to self: do not eat mussels unless you open 4-5 of them to determine overall quality of the dish. Do NOT open and eat one at a time, hoping the next one will be better! Also, our waiter was a veteran one (and I have had this experience before) who was neither happy, nor patient with my tablemates. It is not a job he enjoys, I would bet.
I would have to believe there are better dining experiences for good Italian food.

Two hours and no entree. And no acknowledgment or sympathy or comping anything. Apps were good. They said deeply discounted drinks were standard when there was live entertainment. I suspect it was get you drunk so you won’t notice your food is MIA. Another thought - dont you think the owner/manager would put In an apron and get into the kitchen? . There was ONE person cooking for The whole place.

Beautiful decor. Waiter last Week was terrific. Waiter this week not so much. Never checked our empty water glasses. We asked for 2 checks, but he put all on one. Told us twice thatmeal would be out in 10 min. Wrong. Reserv. was 6:30pm, but our main course came 1.5 hr later. We finished at 8:40pm. Food is good. Live music was GREAT ! (3 separate vocalists) Our guests were unhappy about 2 hr dinner,
but music made it bearable.

We waited for more than an hour for our food. Service was pretty slow. The rabbit was pretty tasty but not much of it. The Cornish Game Hen was nice and the sauce used was very good. I think the slow service would keep us from returning.
