Best Pizzas in Town

Although the Italians tend to eat later we were really lucky to get a sat here at 8:30, it was already filling up - advice book next time. The garden area is favourite and clean. The waiter was very friendly, helpful and spoke good English. We ordered 2 portions of Antipasta for 3, in truth 1... read more

We visited this restaurant twice whilst in Alberobello and thoroughly enjoyed it. The menu is quite extensive, and the complimentary bruschetta pomodoro was just delicious. Pizzas (approx. 5 Euros) were incredibly good and easily enough for 2 people to share, although you can take them home if you don't finish. A 1/2 litre of local red wine was under 3... More

Recommended by hotel stuff, better make reservation. Good for small kids family as well, very simple but fantastic local food. Out side table is also nice for cozy dinner.

Quiet when we arrived,lots of empty seats, took the waitress ages to seat us, she had to go and ask someone if we could eat! it was only 9pm. We were stared at by... More

We always try to dine at Gli Ulivi as often as we can when we visit Puglia each summer. We love the antipasto best - incredible variety of dishes and great value as well - order 1 antipasto to share between two so you can fit in their other great dishes like the Costata di Vitello or pasta dishes especially...

Our Italian neighbours staying next to us recommended this place to us. We arrived early in the evening and we were thoroughly explained choices as a vegetarian some of the dishes can be challenging. I was given a different style of mushrooms with a herb and vinegar dressing which was good. We were also given complimentary bruchettas and a spinach... More

We've owned our trullo in Alberobello now for 9 years and this restaurant has to be our favourite in the entire town. Whenever we have a first-time visitor we take them here & order antipasti. Never fails to impress. Great service, beautiful local produce and a fantastic atmosphere. Happy days!

Recommended by our Trullo owener - don't be fooled by the neon lights outside, follow the steps down to a busy restaurant - a large selection and not just pizza on the menu - the antipasti just kept coming. The vegetarian main choice was a little bland but the rest of the food was spot on. Good service and my... More
