excellent anti pasta

Good little restaurant with exceptionally good anti pasta della cassa. We sat outside behind a small laurel hedge and the traffic noise and fumes rather spoiled the evening. We didn't see what accommodation they might have had inside. Good food, shame about the location.

Recommended by a friend who lives nearby, we were not disappointed. Simple but charming terrace outside in the backstreets of old Brindisi. Both the menu and food were unpretentious, simple and delicious. We had a selection of antipasti typical of the region followed by the fish of the day. Great authentic food for a reasonable price.

The receptionist at our hotel recommended Pantagruele and booked us a table. It was so good we went back again the next night. Service was excellent, food delicious, well presented and cooked to perfection. My husband even went into the kitchen by invitation to choose his fish! We asked the waiter to recommend a wine, and he did so, choosing... More

I was in Brindisi for business. I had a dinner. I ordered 'Antipasti misti della casa', about 7 different appetizers all simply delicious. And then a very good pasta with polpo. All with 2 glasses of wine, 1 of Salice Salentino and 1 of Negramaro.

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
