Savor the Tyrrenhian's bountyin the form of Sardinian seafood stew — packed with flavorful clams, lobster and squid — and pasta alla trabaccolara, made with white fish, herbs and lots of garlic. And don't miss pabassinas, a small pastry dense with walnuts, almonds and raisins and spiced with orange zest and cinnamon.
