Upon arrival in Alberobello it was nearly 1 pm and we were tired and hungry. We were recommended to go to L'Aratro which turned out to be only a short walk from our Trulli! What a wonderful and charmiing ristorante it was indeed. We were served by the delightful owner's daughter and Cosimo who recommended the local dishes and wine... More

We had lunch at this wonderful restaurant. It had a lovely cozy atmosphere and the owner actually sat with us for a little while….what a treat. I shared three delicious starters with a fantastic bottle of red wine. We had the Cavatellucci pasta, mussels and beans, broad beans and chicory and the fricelli pasta, cauliflowers and tomatoes. One dish was... More

We booked this restaurant on a recommendation for our final meal out, we were on a weeks holiday near Alberobello. Were we just unlucky? We left feeling deflated and sad we had spent so much on a very mediocre meal. The front of house staff were attentive and pleasant but the food in our opinion badly let them and us... More

What a wonderful choice for lunch! The four of us (two couples) have dined, wined and traveled all over Italy and this was one of the most memorable meals we have ever eaten. Go with whatever is fresh and recommended. We did (sharing everything) and loved every morsel of food. At the end of our very leisurely meal, the chef/owner... More

It is well worth the effort to seek this lovely ristorante out when visiting the charming town of Alberobello with the most unusual trulli. If the weather is nice, a seat in the outdoor garden is highly recommended. The antipasti for two and orrechettie with turnip greens were wonderful combined with very friendly service and great local wine. The calmness... More

Just returned from a wonderful lunch (open 12-3) at L'Aratro and I will return. The location while on a touristy street has a lovely quiet terrace and a cozy interior for chilly days. The wait service was excellent, he explained dishes and offered suggestions and even altered a dish for me as I am not an anchovy fan. The chef/owner... More

Lovely trullo restaurant with delicious food and nice selection of wine. Great service. Incredible steak and "tierra" (lamb stew in vegetable based sauce). So delicious that we had to mop off the last trace of the sauce with bread.

We visited L'Aratro twice in our visit to Alberobello purely because it had the best food and atmosphere in that beautiful town. Domenico, the Chef and owner has created a great place to eat with delicious, locally sourced food that really gives visitors to the area a real taste of Puglia. It also has a great selection wine's and local... More
