Fodor's Expert Review La Lepanto

$$ Alghero Seafood

A covered veranda by the seafront marks out Alghero's top seafood restaurant, an expansive and sunny room complete with crustacean-filled aquarium. Summer sees crowds of both locals and tourists, many of whom come for the specialty aragosta (lobster) cooked different ways, including alla catalana (with tomato and onions) or with ricotta foam, parsley, basil, and tomato. In winter, when lobster isn't available, sample the ricci (sea urchins). For starters, try bottarga di muggine su insalatina di sedano e pomodori (dried mullet roe on a celery and tomato salad).
