It was our first day in Bari and we took an afternoon walk along the coast. We went to this non-assuming restaurant and were pleasantly surprised with the freshness of the seafood -- squid, prawns, mussels and clams. An added treat was the super friendly host, Victor, who seemed to enjoy moving from table to table, making sure guests were... More

Unfortunately next day me and my mom felt ourselves... More

Osteria Il Gambero is located strategically next to Bari old city and it's port. There was ample seating in a non-descript setting. The service was attentive but a bit pushy toward their specials, but not too bad. The food was average. The anti-pesto of ceviche style and raw fish was superb. The primo, frutti DI mar e pasta, was average... More

This unassuming restaurant which seems to be mainly made up of temporary outside marque type solution was surprisingly good. The raw fish antipasto was amazing, the pure quality of the ingredients was unsurpassed. The pastas were equally as impressive, and the rumbaba that we ate to finish the meal off was tasty and better than expected. The restaurant itself is... More

The food was very good, especially the prawn skewer. The particular wine we ordered was okay, not great, but overall it was a good experience. This time of year fresh fruit is a must for dessert, and the melons, apricots, and peaches just hit the spot. It has been hot here this week and the extra juicy fruit helps. It... More

A friend of mine recommended this restaurant which is near the port. It's very easy to find. Compared to other places in Italy, like Milan and Rome, the food is of good value. The mixed appetizer is definitely a must. One is pretty enough for 2 people to share. The seafood was fresh and the pasta was well cooked. Definitely... More
