Fodor's Expert Review L'Assassino

$$ Sassari Italian

Get a true taste of regional cuisine at this family-run trattoria in the old town. The menu is not for the squeamish or for vegetarians: horse, donkey, and—one of the stand-outs—roasted suckling pig feature prominently, as do typical Sassarese dishes such as trippa alla parmigiana (tripe with Parmesan), lumaconi in rosso (snails in a rich tomato sauce), and cordula con piselli (sheep's intestines with peas). For dessert, the seadas (honey-dribbled, cheese-filled pastry packets) are a treat. Two set-price taster menus (€25 and €28) are available. Tables can be had in the buzzy vaulted terra-cotta-tiled dining room, or in summer, in the courtyard.
