DESTINATIONS italy cagliari Dining Martinelli's


Discover the variety and richness of the flavours of the sea at Martinelli's, located in the heart of Cagliari. At this unique eatery, you can try a rich variety of crustaceans and molluscs, as well as the best foreign and local oysters. The menu is constantly changing and evolving, with variations in accordance with the seasons and new proposals being added regularly. In addition to the delicious seafood, there is also a wide variety of excellent wines to choose from. However, seating is limited to only 8 tables, so be sure to book in advance to secure your spot.


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.
