Top quality

This is a lovely restaurant which is a cut above the throng of other Lecce restaurants. Situated in a nice small courtyard, the restaurant has a menu extending beyond the usual 'menu tipica'. Service was perfect and the cost was reasonable. Excellent overall.

We had dinner at this restaurant recently during a week's stay in Lecce and can honestly say that this was the worst meal that we had. It's hard to imagine that anyone in the kitchen has actually tasted the food that they are serving since all of our dishes were completely tasteless. On top of that, our main courses were... More

If you're looking for something truly special in Lecce, this is the place. Modern and innovative cuisine amongst the host of other restaurants in the city selling 'traditional italian cooking'. The ingredients are fresh and the menu is top notch. Great service and wonderful courtyard.

We were wandering thru the narrow Lecce alleys... Hungry, we had seen a Fodor's recommendation for Corte... Took a bit - we found it - and glad we did... Sat in one of the back rooms adorned with angels hanging from the ceiling... must have be 100 or more... The food was over the moon... Antipasti great... Pastas so yummy... More

Corte dei Pandolfi was a really nice place to eat, nice atmosphere and great self-made pasta, which we really enjoyed! Reservation was necessary!

The place has a wonderful terrace on the square, and surroundings are nice. But the food is not well seasoned and plain. Not at all what we expected.

After 1 week in Italy one might get a little sick from eating bruschetta, insalata caprese and pizza so this restaurant serves great food, at great prices ( between 10-20€ for a main course). Service was very nice and helpfull! TIP: Make a reservation! People start coming at about 9:30 ... at 10, 10:30 pm its very full

The restaurant is in a beautiful location on a square and serves traditional Puglian food. The interior was attractive but we preferred to sit outside in the warm weather. We could watch the youth of Lecce play in the square. We both ordered the same dishes for starter and main - * Orzo pasta, made from barley and served with... More
