We arrived to Agriturismo Agrifoglio because it was suggested by a friend of us living in the area, and I must admit that we had a great dinner.
Being a real agritourism, you cannot book your table for a specific time, you have to be there by the time you are told when you book or you'll be refused!
We were served a large selection of delicious starters (local cheese, ham and vegetables), 2 home made pastas and pork (porceddu, a typical Sardinian dish) and vegetables.
We ended with seadas (a Sardinian cake made with chees and honey).
The only problem with this place, is that portions are pleintful and you risk eating too much!
I did not ask to see a menu and was treaded like a guest in a loving family home. I ate an antipasto of shellfish, small fish cakes, baby octopus, local tuna and anchovies. I was then served cous cous with wild boar and then a hand made pasta with potato and pesto. Just when I could not eat any more then the owners of this fine restaurant sat with us and we had some light pastries and grappa. The whole experience still lives with me today and my favourite restaurant in Melbourne is a Sardinian one without menu.
Favorite Dish: The cous cous and wild boar was outstanding
The freshest seafood fished straight from the surrounding waters. Calasetta has an outstanding tradition as a world class producer of food.
The fish caught off it's shores...the high grade tuna, and highly prized mediterranean fish is matched by the world's finest tomatoes, high quality grapes used in such famous wines as Terre Brune, and the quality of it's fruits and vegetables, makes Calasetta, an absolute mecca for anyone interested in food.
Almost everyone has a small plot of land on which to grow fruit trees, grapes, vegetables. The tiny island is a perfect microcosm of Sardinia's interior culture and its coast
OK. So they're my cousins. They also happen to purvey the best freshest seafood in the area. They'll go out in boats in the morning and the fish will be delivered fresh to the store 5 mintues later. See the Travelogue below for the fun!
Favorite Dish: The seafood along the coast is amazing, especially when prepared with the home touch!
This place is or was great. Haven't been there in a couple of years, but it used to be great. You could just go and they would tell you what they had. Whatever was fresh. Someone might have hunted a wild boar, or picked some mushrooms or whatever and that's what you got. Also they made their own wines and cheeses and everything.
