The menù

The daily appointment with good cooking

A menu rich of tasty dishes

Among the most important dishes of our menu, you can find the Camicie, which have been created for the first time at our restaurant and which should be eaten just using your hands. They have been created for fun as a long crispy sandwich, stuffed in many different ways and then cut so to enhance the alternating layers and colors that blend together in a marriage of flavors.
The possible camicie are many: the classic ones which are related to the classic and traditional fillings and the branded ones which are prepared using only the finest ingredients and certified as Slow Food products.
The menu of Il Guscio offers a wide range of spaghetti which are always served in generous servings, following both classic or the more innovative recipes, but all prepared and served quickly.

The pizzas are prepared following either classic or Signature recipes, all of them topped with fine ingredients as for the renowned Culatello di Zibello. The bakery offer is completed by the products such as the famous “Recco” focaccia with cheese as a homage to the Liguria, region from which the owner comes from. The meat dishes are made with high quality and fine cuts, while fresh fish is purchased and delivered daily from the local fish market.
The Dessert List is very wide and all products are made each day. Our wine list counts the finest Sardinian wine producers, with special attention to local products. Our beer selection will satisfy all tastes.
