Classic Italian cuisine

A very reasonably priced eatery located in the heart of Bari, a few minutes walk from the old town. I was after authentic Italian and that's exactly what they do here. Very relaxed feel to the place, it's quite old-worldly on the inside and the staff are very friendly. I had pasta, pizza, 3 glasses... read more

We stopped for a beer and left a few hours later after a fine meal! This is a small friendly bar/restaurant with a small outside area. Perfect for a short refreshment stop or a leisurely meal. Highly recommended!

Went there for an afterdinner drink with a group of 12 friends. As soon as we asked for a table for 13 the general manager looked like we were too many in his opinion but there was plenty of room in the cafe. We kinda felt unwelcome. Anyway we managed to have a table for 13 after he apparently made... More

We found this authentic, nice little bar close to our hotel, while staying in Bari. Best cappucino, and very friendly service. We reccommend it to everybody, who likes to go back in time for a while.

We first visited Caffe Borghese on a one night stop over in Bari prior to joining a cruise. We found the service friendly and warm and were provided a menu in english, which was a nice touch. The meal that we had was inexpensive and full of flavour and the recommended wine was wonderful. Following our cruise, we found ourselves... More
