The menu is in dialect most Italians find impenetrable,which tells you everything you need to know about this eatery's commitment to Pugliese culinary tradition. loud, bright and no-frills,this is the place for real-deal tajeddha,which is layered potatoes,rice and mussels and ciceri e tria,boiled and crisp-fried pasta with chickpeas. i could eat here every day. In fact we re-engaged twice more... More

Great local dishes cooked up by the family. We were here several times during our month's stay in Lecce and would rank it as one of the top five restaurants in the old town. Be sure to meet MaMa who is a very well known cook -- has published several books and operated a cooking school. Nice selection of local... More

Lunch in this lovely little restaurant was a great escape from the midday heat in Lecce, Italy. I tried their house speciality, lu chinu, (a delicious baked chicken,arborio rice and pecarino cheese recipe) and it's one of my new favorite dishes! The owner and her (English-speaking daughter) graciously provided step by step directions for home preparation and suggested that I... More

We chanced on this restaurant and nearly passed by as it's in a narrow street with no outside seating. The lunch menu was not huge which I think is a good thing. We both had one of the local speciality pasta dishes. The pasta is homemade and mine was a mix of pasta and chickpeas with some of the pasta... More

I recently visited this restaurant with 5 friends while in Lecce. They have a no fuss, casual, but high quality, approach to dining here. We had antipasto, primi, secondi, dessert, wine and some coffees for less than 210 euros (about £30 each by reckoning). If we had any gripe it would only have been the limited selection of desserts, but... More

This charming restaurant extends a warm greeting and serves traditional dishes and uses ingredients that are in season. A very good menu. We had an antipasto of picante salami, cheese and olives, simple and delicious ingredients. Mains were tasty chicken stew with artichokes, in season, and frittata with vegetables potatoes artichokes (in season). Deserts were excellent especially the spumone. One... More

We ended up at Alle Due Corti by mistake due to a mix up caused by our tour company. However it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. We were welcomed warmly by the hostess and given a table - our voucher was honoured and apologies profusely offered even though the problem was not of their making. A delectable... More

Great place- 100% apulian cousine, family owned and family run- great quality and ABS autentic. If you want to taste the real apulian farmer food- that is the best place. 100% honest quality- price, great wine list- try Cantele reds and whites. Our choice was griliata Di carne -11 euro for a huge plate of assorted grilled meats, a plate... More

Amazing, unique food representative of the local cuisine and traditions. Great service and very personal - run by an older woman who was in the restaurant while we were eating and her daughter. Reasonably priced.

As part of a group tour we had lunch here. The food was delicious and represented local dishes. We also were treated to local wines. This was a meatless meal which greatly pleased our vegetarian travelers. Everything was well prepared and beautifully presented. The staff was friendly and always helpful. I highly recommend this restaurant.
