A covered veranda by the seafront marks out Alghero's top seafood restaurant, an expansive and sunny room complete with crustacean-filled aquarium. It's usually crowded with both locals and tourists in summer. The specialty is aragosta (lobster) cooked different ways, including alla catalana (with tomato and onions)—or try it with ricotta foam, parsley, basil, and tomato. In winter, when lobster isn't available, sample the ricci (sea urchins). For starters, try fregola ai crostacei (local semolina pasta with shellfish).
