We went twice to this restaurant. The food is very simple traditional food from the region. The appetizer were very tasty and of several different types. The pasta which we asked to get with meat (brasato) was excellent and also the meat dishes were very good. It is really a restaurant for those who appreciate the simple local food nothing... More

Only one waiter who knows how to take an order. The Appetizer that just keeps coming is very rustic, basic and all tastes pretty much the same. Yes its cheap, but they promise you a table outside, we have a dog and 2 year old with us ...then arrive and there is no outdoor until July/August. Inside is hot and... More

We wandered in at 7PM without reservations, and they managed to squeeze two of us in for an early dinner. And thank god it was early, because the place was packed! We had the antipasti, the octopus and the orrechiette with cime di rapa. We also had two quarter litres of wine (red, and rosé). To my mind, one antipasti... More

Been coming here since the place opened and I'd highly recommend it for an authentic taste of rustic home cooking, if you can go in low season. The mixed appetizer sampler is good, but offerings can fluctuate. As the menu focuses on traditional food, I assume they use what is in season or maybe it's just what they have left... More

A quiet little town in the southern tip of Italy. Very authentic, anciently beautiful! The restaurant serves south italian food - of southern italian "olden days" recipies - absolutely enticing to the taste buds.

Everything you read about this place is true. Its small, its magical, you need reservations but the food is fantastic and the setting is even better. They have the back garden and the front area overlooking the church. Ask to seat in the front as the setting is just like you would imagine in the old Italian movies. This is... More

It's a tiny restaurant so yes, you better make a reservation ahead. Try to have your table on the small square in front of the restaurant. It's magical. Inside it's a bit aqward ans in the inside terrasse it's fine! When we went there we eventually had to wait 30 minutes for the table. We asked for a bottle of... More

Patu' is a cute little town worth seeing at night. The restaurant stands in e main square and is a nice little original building from the local architecture. Food is genuine. Not much choice and all local produce, no fish. The antipasti is the best course, rich and various. Little choice of vegetables. Atmosphere is pleasant and is definitely good... More
