Alghero (Sardinia), Italy Cuisine | Where to Eat

Popular Local Cuisine: The island of Sardinia has a cuisine inspired by the rugged terrain and by the sea. If you arrive in May, the rock lobsters are plentiful and less expensive. Served in a variety of ways, the specialty in Alghero is lobster with citrus, while a Catalan-style boiled lobster is also popular. Another famous sea-based edible is bottarga, the roe of mullet or tuna, dried, smoked or salted and served in slices as an appetizer or in pastas. If you have a chance, you should tried carraxiu (buried meat), suckling pig, (or sometimes calf or lamb) roasted in the ground with aromatic myrtle spicing the meat. A more rustic and simple specialty is known in English as music paper. It is very thin slices of toasted Sardinian bread that is layered and served with tomato, pecorino romano, and a fried egg. Among the famous desserts are sebadas, a fried cheese-filled ravioli served with honey and biscuits stuffed with almonds and sweet cheese. Pecorino romano is a specialty of the island.

Sardinia has a long tradition of wine-making and there are a wide selection of quality reds, whites and roses made with various grapes.
