If English visitors to Puglia speak Italian then please send over the Italian waiter not the Romanian waitress who speaks broken English. We spoke to her in Italian all through the meal but got replies only in English. Food was good ( if you like octopus) , wine was good and it's in a great location but service was irritating.... More

Fresh food, lovely views. We ordered the mixed seafood platter and fresh grilled octopus. Simple and good. Presented well and served quickly. Can recommend.

This restaurant saved the day for us when we needed a midday lunch to catch an afternoon plane from Bari. The restaurant opened half an hour early on 2 minutes notice when all other restaurants in town said they didn't open til 12.30. The setting was lovely and the food delicious - slightly different menu from the usual seaside restaurants... More

This is a lovely, simple seafood restaurant on the seafront in Savalettri. The setting is lovely and we sat outside for lunch of seafood pasta, spaghetti vongole and some simple grilled fresh fish caught that day washed down with a very cold local white wine. Service is good and the bill very reasonable. Difficult to fault it.

There is nothing fancy about this simply run and unassuming village restaurant set right on the sea. The really encouraging sign is the location of the main fishmonger bang next door. We had simply grilled seabass and salad, washed down with local wine. A simple pasta dish was also to the point. Helpful staff. One downside: the vegetables were not... More

Al Polpo Re (the octopus king) is a nice, small, and not very popular seafood restaurant in Savelletri di Fasano. We set outside and enjoyed the amazing view and the blue sea (we were there for a late lunch on Saturday). The service was good and we managed with our broken Italian and the waiter's English. The antipasto of fresh... More
