Where to eat

Lunches, dinners and appetizers to learn about local cuisine

Sassarese cuisine began as a poor and peasant (but very tasty) cuisine, mainly based on the use of vegetables from its famous gardens, which in times past surrounded the city, and the less valuable parts of meat. Over the years, however, a great gastronomic ferment has developed in the city, which has been able to win over Sassaresi's palates and led to the birth of establishments where today high quality catering is offered that does not forget its origins while experimenting with original solutions.
