Open kitchen, awesome organization.

Came here on a Saturday lunch. We had made reservations a couple of hours ahead of time not to risk of just showing up and not having a table available. The place have few tables and surprisingly the kitchen is right in the dining area. It was awesome to observe how well organized they are. The... read more

Loved the food and the service! Make sure to make a reservation...it is not large insider. Staff is delightful. The owner/chef would not let us make a a reservation for another night because he had a large group coming and was concerned that the quality might suffer.

Fabulous atmosphere in this small, intimate and friendly restaurant where you can see all your food being cooked to order in the open kitchen. Wonderfully tasty pasta dishes and a a limited but excellent choice of wines. A special experience.

The Head Chef / owner works hard with his two assistants to quickly produce wonderfully fresh and tasty food. Two courses and wine for 25 each. Excellent value

I was recommended this restaurant by a local man and it did not disappoint. The place is cosy and the tables are directly in front of the kitchen so you can see your food being prepared. The place was packed on a Wednesday (good sign) and as I was on my own I took a good book to read. The... More

The restaurant is located in a very nice place, nicely decorated, but although they are cooking in front of the customer in an open kitchen, we had to wait a long time for the food. We ate two kind of pasta and cooked vegetables . The food wasn't so special, very average, even below .

We were referred to this restaurant by our hotel and were so happy that we were. We got a seat just off of the open kitchen and got to enjoy watching as our meals were prepared right in front of us. We liked it so much that we went back 2 nights later for our last dinner in Alberobello. After... More

We had lunch at La Cantina when we visited the Trulli houses in Alberbello; we had to wait a while to get a table because this restaurant is always packed with people and certainly worth the wait. The starters, the main course, all so delicious and at a good price. Would definitely recommend, you would not be sorry. P.S -... More

Simple and small restaurant with the kitchen exposed to the diners. The meals were super delicious, served with the smile. Chef is doing incredible job, the team which is small -- working hard to please everyone. Honestly, there are few restaurants that impresses at this level. Reasonably priced, not tourist trap.

great family restaurant. 2 brothers are running the show, one is the chef the other the captain. Nice ambience which it feels like you are having dinner at your grandma house. We shared the antipasto special for 2 and it was amazing. The meat brochette that we had as main course was good. The dessert wasn't very good, the sfogliatina... More
