No point in going back to Italy if you can’t have proper cappuccino and some cannoli. These are from the Costa café near Pittulongu Beach. Wait before you swim after that one!
Find a terrace, set the table, add Sardinia’s very own Birra Ichnusa (Sardinia’s ancient name) and wait for the feast: fried courgette flowers with mozzarella and fried calamari. They are both easy to make (follow this recipe), but you can find them in every fried fish shop.
Have with: A glass of Italian Pimm’s – made with Vermouth – and papassini biscuit, crunchy almond and raisin treats with a white glaze.
One dessert is not enough. Head to your local gelateria – Olbia’s La Smeralda is one of the best I’ve ever been to – and experiment with flavours. My favourites right now are Bacio and Mango.
