Restaurant - Pizzeria
The “I Velieri” restaurant in the “Torre del Porticciolo” holiday village bases its cuisine on a careful mix of the gastronomic traditions of the town of Alghero in particular and Sardinia in a more general way.
The agropastoral culture and agriculture itself are the key influences over the traditional cuisine of the island of Sardinia: simple but original, it is rich in ingredients and offers up a wealth of honest, unfussy flavours, aromatised with herbs such as myrtle, rosemary and helichrysum. The staples here are roast meats, dairy products, salami, bread, sweets and wines. Our seafood dishes take their cue from Catalan, Spanish, Sardinian and Genoese recipes, which have gradually been transformed while conserving and making the most of the authentic nature of the fish caught in Sardinia, where the seas are among the most generous anywhere in the Mediterranean.
At our Restaurant, you will find all manner of dishes, encompassing everything from the typical specialities of Sardinian cuisine to the authentic fish-based fare of the Algherese kitchen. You can also savour excellent pizzas and mixed platters, accompanied by high-quality wines from the Santa Maria La Palma winery, made using grapes cultivated in the vineyards located in the surrounding area. You can take your seat and order from the menu. We also offer half-board and full-board packages, which can be purchased during booking or on-site at the start of your holiday, and last for the entire duration of your stay.
From the end of July to the last Saturday of August, we organise folk evenings with tastings of roast suckling pig and Sardinian cheeses, accompanied by Sardinian folk dancing and by the live cooking of seadas, a typical local sweet prepared in-house and served with marmalade made using home-grown oranges.
The strong flavours and body of typical Sardinian cookery are enhanced in dishes that come from the interior of the island.
