Amazing......

Amazing.... not much more to say. We had lunch, it was incredible. We had spaghetti with clam & Orecchiette with octopus to start, followed by a whole bream and calamari. All was excellently cooked. Another good sign was there were several groups of locals eating at the same time.

Went her on business trip after traveling all day, so arrived late in the evening. No problem for the cook. We had a great meal, fresh pasta, seppie. We ordered Amarone and a local red wine form Puglia. Both were of very high quality! Being Dutch it was a surprise to see old drawings of old Dutch boardgames on the... More

Friends found this place and raved about it so we booked to go the next night. They were not kidding! The antipasti selection was incredible - the freshest shrimp, light and tasty bacalao, super mushroom dishes. We were so full we had a hard time with our primi piatti but the orrechiette was so light and tasty. Wine selection was... More

My first visit at Trattoria Pantagruele and I must say that this is definitely a good place to eat. The food is incredible, the taste of the fish is so fresh that you can taste the sea. We had a selection of starters and I was literally licking my plate. Then we had home made spaghetti with vongole and home... More

Food was really good but beware because the portions are suite small compared to other restaurants in Italy. We had the excellent risotto and some delicious beef. They have a lot of wine and recommanded the cheapest which was quite good.

I was recommended Restaurant by a supplier and it fully deserved his recommendation. I visited with a vegetarian colleague and a non-vegetarian one. both were appalled by the quality and variety of the dishes. The owner recommended an excellent bottle of locally produced white wine and a full 4 course dinner with wine and post dinner drinks came at 55... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Brindisi. Tucked away in a corner just off the waterfront, it does consistently great food paired with some great local (and regional) wines. In particular, I can never go past the risotto with prawns, green apple, poppy seeds and red peppercorns. Sounds weird? Maybe, but it's one of the most original and... More

We we're recommend this by 2 local men and we weren't disappointed. The portions were not massive but the food was delightful. The location is on a busy corner and not too easy to find but that adds to the atmosphere. The waiter was attentive friendly and helpful with my splattering of Italian. Many thanks to all for a very... More
