Convento San Giuseppe

Arguably the most renowned restaurant in Cagliari, it is housed in one of the ancient buildings of the city dating back to 1270. Inside, you will find several rooms where you can enjoy a typical Sardinian dinner in a refined atmosphere. Discover traditional recipes reinvented in creative ways.


Despite the fact that Sardinia is surrounded by the sea, the best-known local dish is porceddu — roasted suckling pig. This does not mean that seafood is not part of the regional tradition, however. On the contrary, along the coast, you can enjoy daily fresh barbecued fish, such as striped bream, sea bass, and red and grey mullet. Sardinians are very proud of their culinary tradition, so leave Italian and international food for later and appreciate the unique flavours of local cuisine, including (but not limited to) the delicious bread "cifraxu" and regional cheeses.
