Romantic location for our last night in Lecce

We found this place on Trip and were delighted with it. The location is beautiful, al fresco, soft lighting, set in the centre of Lecce but off the Main Street so quiet and calm. The restaurant is clearly well run by competent people who care about the service they offer- everyone was very... read more

For me, one of the most important things in a restaurant is the happiness of the personnel, as I feel sad to be served by people who are not enjoying their work. At this place everybody seemed happy and proud of their restaurant. We had a romantic dinner outside, my boyfriend could choose his own gamberoni and I had a... More

Great dinner!fresh fish, delicious antipasti and ceci soup!!!the location is perfect: in the center but far from the crowd!it is a family-run restaurant and you can see that in the way they treat their guests. They take their time in explaining the dishes and recommending the daily specials!highly recommended!!!!

I was looking for somewhere to have lunch a very warm day in Lecce and bumped into this fantastic "terrace" under a tree in one of the backstreets of the historic centre. I had a slice of grilled tuna and a mixed sallad and half a litre of the house white. Then the lady managed to talk me into having... More

Family restaurant, excellent food visited two nights and the recommended dishes were brilliant,. We had a wonderful fish spaghetti dish and then a fish main dish which was boned at our table.by the charming waitress (I believe daughter of owner). All in all a delightful two nights.

We had a beautiful lunch under the trees on warm autumn day. The food was beautiful. If you are not super hungry just keep eating the antipasti - delicious. Go hungry if you want to eat more than one course.

Amazing family run restaurant with fantastically served food. We were not sure what to order but our host guided us to some wonderful pasta dishes including fresh fish. It's tucked away but you will not be disappointed. We went at lunch time and had a great, unhurried Italian meal.

Lecce is tourist trap territory, so we didn't really expect to find the family restaurant of our fantasies. But we did - and this is it. Cheerful friendly service ( the waitress remembered our name when we returned for a second night), fresh fish cooked to perfection, and everything just right (except it could have been a bit warmer in...

We stopped in here on the recommendation of Trip Advisor reviewers and agree with the comments that it is fabulous (if you like fish)! The antipasto was a little bit daunting however as we ordered prawns and they came raw, cured in citrus. My wife wasn't that keen on them but I loved them and also enjoyed the heads, which... More

Everything we wanted from a top class restaurant. Freshly prepared food options were explained so clearly and interestingly in English so that we did not even open the menu. Wine also top quality but not expensive.
