We had ONE of Many Wonderful meals we have had in Italia. Upon arrival, the restaurant was not very busy but we were given a table and menu's and then they brought fried fava beans and olives while we mulled over the menu. Our ABSOLUTE wonderful waiter, explained everything to us, and took our order, in which the food arrived... More

Incredible food and local wine! My husband and I each ordered a pizza and some local Primativo wine. We were blown away by the flavors! I had a pizza with fresh tomatoes, basil, and burrata cheese. I wish I could have eaten more of it, but could only eat half. (Their pizzas are a good size! ) My husband had... More

This is a great place to eat for atmosphere. It has an expansive menu that is reasonably priced. We went on a Tuesday when it was full of locals watching a Champions League game so it was pretty lively. We enjoyed it very much.

Restaurant was recommendeed to us by our host as a place "where locals eat". When we're on oliday we want to eat only at places like this, just for locals, that tourist don't go to so the food is real. We were afraid we would have difficulties with the menu but it turned out that our waiter, Vito, spent many... More

We spent a week in the Alberobello area and had the most amazing meals during our stay.The only disappointing meal we had was Gli Ulivi. The service was not good. We had to wait long periods to order and then to receive our food. The food was not anywhere near the standard we had experienced in other restaurants in the... More

Gli Ulivi is located outside of Alberobello but absolutely packed with locals and visitors enjoying a traditional Italian evening. We were recommended the restaurant by our accommodation host and we were not disappointed. Our waiter had worked in London for many years and spoke perfect English, so helped us with our order. The restaurant is very traditional with it's Antipasti,... More

Had a great meal here the other night with my wife and son.Wouldn't have expected what hides behind the outside hedge!!! It's worth booking as it's always full, mainly with local Italians. Antipasti starter is a must, good quality food and not expensive

We went as three adult couples whilst holidaying in the area. The restaurant was full, with a mix of visitors as well as locals, and the atmosphere was buzzing. Our waiter, who had worked in London for many years, spoke excellent english and helped us with our choices. My husband shared the antipasti with his daughter and the courses just... More

Its a bit difficult to find. It is out of the main centre of the town near the sports stadium and its worth persevering to find it. A big restaurant in terms of the numbers it can seat. Clearly local extended families and friends meet there to share traditional, wholesome, unpretentious Italian food at a reasonable price in a convivial... More
