When you eat at Ammentos, at least when you eat lunch there, the waiter will go through the menu of prix fixe options and let you know what your options are for water, antipasti, first course, second course, etc. it doesn't matter. If you ask for sparkling water you will get still. You will end up with a bread basket, a sort of bruschetta served with ultra thin crisp bread, a liter and a half of water, a half liter of wine, a plate of warm pickled vegetables (8 or more varieties), a charcuterie plate, and a cheese plate with pecorino, ricotta, and more of the aforementioned ultra thin bread with melted cheese on top. Just go with it. Trust me (and more importantly) your waiter on this.
You will have a choice of wine (red or white) and main course. You will be glad it all worked out the way it did. You will make only a dent in the food. You will stand in awe of the ultra thin Cagliarians wherever you look. Clearly the laws of energy expenditure do not apply to the natives. Don't eve worry about it.
You will thank god that dinner doesn't begin before 8pm, at the earliest, because you're pretty sure you'll never be hungry again. Not before 8pm, or whichever comes earliest. When The server asks if you'd like coffee, just say yes. If you're lucky it will arrive with a complementary shot of mirto, a local digestif made from myrtle berries.
