recommended Agriturismo TestoneIf you go inland there are many agriturismos where you can have super yummy meals..we recommend this one. Arrive to a jug of wine and then the food just keeps coming. Expect something like this: A ... read moreSardinian meal normally starts with antipasti : proscuitto, cheese, octopus, salami, olives,marinated vegetables, clams or mussels cooked alla marinara with white wine, garlic, and parsley, burrida, bottarga (salted, dried fish eggs of tuna or mullet) which is served in shavings with lemon and olive oil. First course (Primi) include: sa fregula, a small round shaped pasta often served in fish broth with clams; malloreddus, small grooved pasta flavored with saffron and served with tomato, sausage sauce and topped of with grated pecorino cheese; culingionis, ravioli made with semolina (potato and mint filling, but fillings depend on the region of the island); and panadas, a round pie filled with vegetables, meat or eels. Second course(Secondo) Usually a fish or meat dish. Traditional Sardinian meats are spit-roasted suckling pig, cooked over a log fire. Baby lamb,goat, and rabbit are also very popular. There was some talk of cordula, lamb intestines with peas tied into an intricate braid but I didn't have the stomach for it. Another specialty food is sanguinaccio, a pig-blood sausage sweetened with currants and sugar and served roasted or boiled. Atmosphere is "rustic". Remember to book.Recommended for:Kelly Lees
Our rental card broke down just as we were leaving a long boozy lunch here. So we were stranded for about 4 hours until avis could get someone to pick us up. Needless to say we got to know the place well and highly recommend it. Cheap. Romantic.
