What an incredible restaurant and an amazing experience. We were accommodated with warm hospitality in spite of failing to make a reservation in advance. The service was exceptional, the food and wine were equivalent. There is no better restaurant in Bari. Highly recommended.

We went to La Bul as a family with our 2-year old son. Very friendly and polite service. We were take to our table that already had a high chair for our kid. The menu was in Italian, but the chef and the waitress were helping us choose our food. We were offered very nicely textured, fresh gazpacho full of... More

Founding this place in a food magazine and beeing curious about the tartar of raw fish, we decide to finish our holidays at this place: and we didn't regret it! The staff is very friendly, Francesca managed all the orders in english, and gave us the suggestion to try their variations of raw fish: oysters, cozze, vongole, squids, different types... More

Just came back from having dinner in La Bul with my boyfriend. And what a great meal it was! We went there thanks to tripadvisor, but almost went somewhere else because the place was deserted. After some hesitation we desided to go in, and let me tell you we didn't regret it! What a wonderfull place with great staff and... More

I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and can only confirm what others have already written. The food was fabulous! While we were there the electricity went out twice in that section of Bari. They brought over some candles and carried on, which added to the experience. The restaurant is just a half black from the Palace Hotel. You can... More

This place is definitely a hidden gem that shouldn't be missed when visiting this city. The staff is so friendly, they went out of their way to translate the menu for us and make us feel welcomed. The food was excellent, prepared with care and presented beautifully by the chef himself. The selection of wine (provided in a hand-written menu)... More

Thanks to tripadvisor for telling about this one. You would never find it by accident. Once you navigate the entrance where you have to be buzzed in, you enter an elegant and stylish space. The staff obviously enjoy their work as they are truly happy and knowledgeable about the food and drink that they provide. We had an excellent meal... More

Excited to write, just back from a wonderful dinner here. I'd rate it the best in Bari or even better, but I have some long-standing allegiances; however, this relative new-comer is small, intimate, and the cooks make their kitchen sing. The wine list - not lists - is hand-written and exciting too; mostly Italian, but not so restricted. By the... More

La Bul provided us a gastronomic experience at champions league level in the exterior patio. Thanks to prior reviewers for preselection, positive rankings are totally justified. Belgian gourmands wish this restaurant to get a star in the near future.
