Menu 

Our ingredients are fresh, top-class quality and carefully selected. These features have made our cuisine famous and delicious. Th e Menu of Ristorante Pizzeria Santa Rughe was created thanks to excellent products of Barbagia and nearby villages. After a careful selection, we start to prepare our specialties. At the core of our Menu there are: creativity, passion and high-quality products. That is why appetizers, first courses, meat dishes and desserts are so special to our clients. Depending on season and availability, we offer different types of food. Among several others, we cook ravioli with cheese and wild boast sauce, gnocchetti with fresh ricotta, saffron and mint and “s’erbuzu” (a traditional soup made of wild herbs). And what about our delicious roasted meat and appetizers? They have definitely conquered our clients’ hearts. Santa Rughe is the ideal place to try new typical and local dishes.


The menu cuisine of Gavoi, Nuoro, offers wood-fired pizzas as well. Pizzas are very important to us and we use only genuine, fresh and high-quality products. Finally, speaking of wines, we recommend our clients: red wines, such as “Cannonau agli Igp” and “Igt della Barbagia”; and white ones, such as “Il Vermentino”.
