Fantasia della Pasta Fresca e Dolci Sardi

To enjoy good lasagne, gnocchi, or ravioli, you can visit Fantasia Pasta Fresca. They produce and sell pasta and supply the whole community, including many restaurants. The specialty Sardinian gnocchi is a must-try for any visitor to the island.

Shopping

The narrow streets of the Old Town are made for both shopping and window-shopping. Via Carlo Alberto, shoulder-to-shoulder crowded, is the main shopping street, while elegant boutiques line up on Via Gilbert Ferret. Stroll along Via Roma for fashion and jewellery. Alghero is famous for the glowing, deep red coral found off the nearby Riviera del Corallo coast. Fishing for the coral is strictly regulated, and jewellery fashioned from the real thing does not come cheap. Feast your eyes on the finest at Marogna in the 16th-century Palazzo D’Albis on Piazza Civica. Across the square, Il Ghiotto has a tempting array of local wines, liqueurs, olive oils and speciality foods. If you are there on the last Saturday of the month, do not miss the Arts, Crafts and Antiques Market on the Piazza Civico. In July and August, late night market stalls line the seafront on Lungomare Dante. During the summer many, shops stay open until midnight.
