We went to this restaurant with a large group of locals. They did all the ordering so I have no idea what all the dishes were or what the cost was. All I know is the food and wine just kept on coming and everything was wonderful. I would go back here in a minute.

My wife wanted the antipasto della casa. So , O.K., we ordered it. I also wanted some past , a salad, and some vegetables. The antipasto was delivered and the wood platter on which it was served covered almost the entire table. I proceeded to cancel the salad and vegetables, but I wanted my pasta. I did have a difficult... More

We went here because other restaurants were full. Was ok and did the job. The tagliata was good and came in a big portion, but it was slightly more medium than rare (as requested).

We a had a great Italian lunch, antipasti Mercanti and a Risotto and a Pasta. Great garden to sit outside. Great food and good price. The cook came to our table to hold our baby, great picture.

The food and environment were very pleasing at this restaurant. There wasn't a menu so we took the options the waiter provided. The food was very tasty and they were nice portions sizes. The only issue was when we paid. The place advertised that they took credit cards however they were trying to convince us that they were not able... More

The perfect place to eat for us: Great food, great (German speaking) service, resonably priced. Located in the charming historic center of Manduria. When it is warm enough, the narrow street becomes the cozy terrace of the restaurant.
