Good restaurant, with good food and nice service. Seafood, meats and deserts are very good. Many locals point to that restaurant as one of the best in the historic center

This restaurant is situated in the old town. It is in a piazza with many restaurants, but the menu caught my eye and it didn't disappoint. There are outside tables, essential on a hot summer evening. Service is efficient, discreet and highly professional. food is beautifully cooked and nicely served with good local wine.

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

This review is in lieu of treating my parents visiting me from the U.S. for their 50th wedding anniversary. 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
