With that much coastal areas it is clear that fish, shellfish and crustaceans or octopus are to be found on the menu. Inland, on the other hand, meat and poultry are widespread. Fruits and vegetables are abundant in Sardinia anyway. Generally, you do not eat much in Italy for breakfast. A coffee and a croissant (Italian: Cornetto) - that is a very common italian way to start a day. During the day there is a choice between a hot meal at lunchtime or in the evening.
