jeffmartinartist Says: 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...
Ahhhh, the nightlife. OK. I was mostly in tiny beach towns, but in the summer the nightlife is pretty good. Everyone stays up very late...even children and for the adults go to the disco. Modest by big city standards but great because you do it outdoors in the beautiful country side under the stars.
In Calasetta, in the summer places like discoteca Aquarium are amazing just by the merefact that they are outdoors in the countryside. It's summer 3 am, you're outside in the beautiful warm sea air...ahh..
On the quiter side, you'll see strolling groups of men and women just normal folks wandering around playing guitars and singing through the streets of the town. To the applause and appreciation of folks who come out on their balconys. Such beautiful gentle customs!

Especially in the smaller towns people are extremely, hospitable and kind. It's in their nature to give. But you must pay attention and return the favor. Really it's only good manners, but alot of people don't have them. In much of Sardegna (less in the interior) and especially in Calasetta, there is a warm friendly openness. People are cheerful and very welcoming, they will ply you with hospitality and friendship. It's a genuine and rare gift these days. My friend Vittorio's mom and brothers are like my surrogate family when I'm not with my own family or cousins.

Calasetta is not the Costa Smeralda or the jet set hot spots. It's stil possible to get a relatively untouristy experience. Most tourists come from Italy and some from northern europe and scandinavia. I've met only a handful of americans since I was a child. It's still a bit of a novelty for people to see an american here.Most people who come here come year after year and rent houses or have some familial ties.
