Rated as the best in alberobello ,need to reserve in advance.

This is rated as one of the top restaurants for puglia food in alberobello and the owner and staff are friendly and know their business. Have a strong sense of customer service.

The owner met us as we walked in and gave us a very friendly introduction to the restaurant. We were early so had our choice of tables, found a nice one for four where we could visit, eat and see most of the restaurant. Service continued to be good and friendly. Got our drinks quickly then our dinners. All four... More

We ate here on one evening whilst on holiday. We were placed at a table next to the outlet air conditioning unit on the terrace which was blowing out hot air and it was 36C !! Asked to be moved which they did but from then on things went rather down hill. One of our party did not get her... More

The owner of the restaurant is slightly eccentric and knows his business. The food is sourced locally and the quality reflects it. The antipasti are absolutely delicious but so many that we struggled with our main course as we were quite full. We should have perhaps been warned that we were ordering too much and perhaps advised to share.Very pleasant... More

Not sure which restaurant other reviewers ate at... The food was excellent and well presented. They allowed us to share a set menu with no complaint. The focaccia bread with cheese and meat plate to start the dinner was nicely prepared. Pasta was just the right firmness and the sauces were great. We had lamb which was prepared so nicely... More

The food here was fine, but ut was not even close to the best we had in Apulia. It was overpriced, but not outrageously. The staff were inattentive. It took a solid 30 minutes of effort to get someone's attention so that we could order food, and later another 30 to get another bottle of water. You can do both... More

We went on a coach party dinner and I suppose they were given a budget. The food was bland. The antipasto was okay. Both pasta dishes were bland. As we have been in Italy for two weeks this the worst meal we have had.

We ate twice here during a three day stay and wish we had gone back for a third visit (went to Trullo d'oro instead - mistake!). The antipasti was a magnificent variety of produtti tipici and locale. The wine was very reasonable. Grilled local lamb was perfectly cooked. Above all, there is Domenico, the ever present and very pleasant owner... More

Great friendly atmosphere and local food. Not the cheapest Puglia food, but well worth the experience, Both teenage children found something on the menu and the entree of focaccia was great. This is an amazing town, that needs to be enjoyed from all angles including the food.
