Food & Restaurants

Sardinian cuisine is influenced by foreigners—Spaniards in particular—and by other Italians. 

 

It offers great seafood, but also offers exquisitely flavored, roasted meat. Traditional Sardinian meats are spit-roasted suckling pig and baby lamb. The rugged coasts provide such delights as rock lobsters, crabs, anchovies, squid, clams, and sardines.

It is important to remind some spicy fish soups such as burrida (inspired by the popular Ligurian dish) and cassòla (a Spanish-inspired recipe).  Bottarga or buttariga, obtained by drying mullet eggs, is used to season pasta or salads. It is favorite in particular with clams and spaghetti.

Well-known for its cheese, Sardegna produces 80% of Italy’s pecorino. Fiore sardo, “the flower of Sardegna,” is the original Sardinian cheese.  Also notable are cow's milk cheeses such as caciocavallo (or casizolu) and provolone.

 

Bread is as much an art form as a staple in Sardegna—there are said to be about 400 varieties. The flat, twice-baked pane carasau, and its crisp variation called carta da musica (music paper),  is the best-known bread.

 

Sardinia's pasta is unique: malloreddus (little calves) are semolina dumplings flavored with saffron, and sometimes served with a ragù of sausage and fennel or red mullet;  Sa fregola, usually served with clams, is similar to couscous; Culurgiones, usually served with a tomato sauce and grated pecorino, are ravioli filled with fresh pecorino, spinach or beets.

 

One of the island’s classic desserts is sebadas (said to date back to the nuraghic era) and served in nearly every restaurant. These are made with unleavened dough, filled with ricotta, bran, and orange peel, fried in hot olive oil, and sprinkled with a slightly bitter honey made from the arbutus (strawberry tree) blossoms.
