Food in Sardinia, especially in Cagliari is not as cheap as tourists think. So, here there are some tips in order not to spend that much if you want to eat out and taste a really good fish based dinner.
Whenever you read on the menu “giro di antipasti” (in English “a round of starters”), if you are interested, ask the waiter what they include. In fact, you probably espect a big dish full of different starters, but it is not like that in Cagliari, where the “giro di antipasti” is very trendy and most of the people only order them to have a full dinner. Asking for the round means that they will bring you at least 5 dishes, so watch out before ordering a “giro” and a first or second course. It is so much food, actually!
