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 and evenings. 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 is not available, sample the ricci (sea
urchins). For starters, try risotto nero di seppia (with cuttlefish ink).
