Top Tables Sardinia
Laurel Barrack, owner and managing partner of Costa Smeralda Hotels, who is heading up the development of new luxury Villas at the legendary Cala di Volpe, Pitrizza and Romazzino hotels, shares her picks for favorite restaurants on the Italian island of Sardinia.
Best for a Special Dinner: Dining poolside with a sea view at the Pitrizza hotel
Best Local Hideaway: You need a boat to access fun restaurant at La Casitta on Santa Maria, located on a small island. It’s a fabulous spot for lunch.
Most Unexpected Find: Ristorante Rosemary an English woman’s sweet country farmhouse serving falafel, satay, chicken curry, and burritos! Try her homemade cheesecake and lemon meringue pie. And I also like La Grotta, on Isola Maddalena for great cold lobster with tomatoes, onions and olive oil.
Best Seafood: Il Pescatore in Porto Cervo’s port, which is on the water (ask for a table near the sea).
Best Sunset View: Have a Bellini at the Romazzino Hotel terrace with views of sea and the islands of Tavolara and Mortorio.
Best Pizzeria: I like Pomodoro (39-0789-931-626) after shopping till 9 in Porto Cervo!
