Friendly small place with open kitchen run by Chef Francesco. Reservation highly recommend. We went for the chef's recommendation which was absolutely stunning. Bold flavours, simple ingredients but top quality. Well done Francesco. Cheers AJ

Small basement restaurant in Alberobello. Great service, fantastic food, lovely wine. We had made reservations for lunch or we would have never been able to get in. Many people tried to have lunch, but no room!! The kitchen is in the same room, so you can watch the chef work and see the plates being prepared. The chef later came... More

Having read other reviews we phoned to book which proved necessary because many were turned away who hadn't booked. There are about eight tables. The cooking and preparation is done at the back end so you can see everything. Beware you will come out smelling of cooking fumes though. Friendly and polite service. The food was excellent. There was a... More

We arrived at noon (2 ladies) to be told they opened at 12:30. We came back at 12:35 as two people were walking out, they had been told it was full with reservations. We walked in anyway and we're promptly seated without a reservation. Weird. As we dined others arrived with and without reservations, some without were sat, others turned... More

We were able to get a seat without a reservation though watched many get turned away from the half empty restaurant when only minutes later others without reservations were seated. The chef was calling all the shots from the back on who was worthy of lunch we couldn't discern any consistent criteria but it was decidedly not group size or... More

We were so lucky to get a table for lunch without a booking and it was one of the few places open on a Monday! We walked right past it by 50 metres but turned back and followed the most wonderful aroma back to the front door. We were 6 and everything was sooo good. Loved the open kitchen. The... More
