People do insist that Lillicu is Cagliari’s must-visit trattoria. You can feel the soul and history here, from the family, who are proud to show you their historic photos, to the noisy main room, with its laid-back refectory-style atmosphere, busy open kitchen and fresh seafood. This is a place that’s appreciated by the locals as much
as by newcomers. Expect friendly waiters juggling plates of spaghetti con arselle (tiny sweet clams) and fritto misto di mare (fried seafood dish), and a group of holidaying Alghero fishermen on the next marble table happy to pour you another glass of red, so you can join them for some Lillicu banter!
