Gustavo Braceria Ate here in June (again late review as only just getting my reviews posted) and was totally delighted with the food, the ambiance and the beautiful nature of Carmela and her efforts to ensure 4 non Italian speaking Brits knew what and where all the dishes came from was amazing. We all loved everything about it, but the... More

We were intrigued by the reviews and were determined to go there. It took three nights and was well worth it. We both have healthy appetites and Gustavo left us both full and very satisfied. So happy to have local food with such variety. The antipasto itself was almost a meal. The restaurant was. Rey busy, but our host paid... More

We were taken to this restaurant by a good friend that lives in the Salento area, wow it was so good, gorgeous space outside lit by lanterns. No menu, so I was a little worried but everything was amazing, can't remember how many courses we had, but they were all explained in detail by our lovely waiter, a fixed price... More

no menu. Thats how this eating adventure begins. After sitting down to a lovely table in an outdoor garden with lanterns and covers hanging from the trees, we were greeted with a smile by none other than the owner. After asking for a menu, I realized what fantastic situation I found myself in. Essentially, there is a flat charge of... More

I don't often write about restaurants I don't like, but in this case I feel the urge to advise people, who travel to Apulia for its superb food. Don't go, don't waste your time, the food is absolutely useless, not typical, not even good. And the service is also quite bad. There's plenty of good places around Salento, don't waste... More

Wonderful meal and experience. The setting is charming, sitting in the softly lit garden on a warm summer evening. Carmela and her staff are very friendly, and our waiter was able to explain each dish in English to our table since our Italian is abysmal. Best of all was the food which was delicious and thoughtfully prepared. As already mentioned... More

We went here after reading the reviews on here and were not disappointed. Being fussy eaters we were slightly nervous about the lack of a menu but decided to jump in and give it a go - we needn't have been worried, everything was absolutely delicious. All the dishes were explained to us with obvious care and attention. The restaurant... More
