Located in a lively location in historical Bari, this restaurant serves delicious Italian food. The ravioli was best of best. Focaccia bread was warm and delicious with tasty tomato. Orecchiette with tomato, basil and cheese should be tried. The waiters are helpful.

Probably the food is great by everyone else's standards, but for me the combinations were on the weird side of things. Definitely a more high-scale restaurant, not very expensive but really 'artsy' when it comes to combining tastes and ingredients.

We were a group of 12 people having a day in Bari beginning with lunch at La Cecchina. We had a delicious seafood and fish feast that was to die for. Eating outside on a beautiful sunny day added to a perfect occasion. Given the quality of the food and service the prices were very reasonable. Lunch was followed by... More

Our hotel concierge recommended this restaurant when I told him it was for my parents' anniversary. And he was right on. It has a wonderful view if choosing to sit outside. Service was impeccable and every one of our food choices... More

I really enjoyed eating in this restaurant. Nice pasta, nice salami, nice wine. Only one problem. When you ask for a beefsteak well done, no blood, that means not a single drop of blood. But it's really worth eating there!

Went there for a business dinner with italian colleagues. What a great place, well decorated. The food was delicious, from the cheeses to the vegetables, seafood, dessert, everything we had was really good. I really like this kind of places where the dinner is becoming a party for your senses. Try it !
