Seafood lovers will be spoilt for choice at Niu, with a generous selection of local fish and shellfish fresh from the waters of the Mediterranean. Sardinian specialities worth trying include culurgiones di mare - a kind of large ravioli stuffed with sea bream and citrus fruits - the grilled lobster and fregola ai frutti di mare, a homemade pasta served with clams and prawns.
On the meat menu, roasted suckling pig, known locally as 'porcheddu', is the star of the show, while other standouts include beef fillet cooked in Cannonau wine and roast duck.
There are also vegetarian dishes, including culurgiones di clorofilla, pasta parcels made from chlorophyll-infused dough stuffed with vegetables. For dessert, try the homemade seadas, traditional fried pastries filled with cheese and drizzled with honey.
