This restaurant is housed in an old mill where olives were pressed for their oil. Very atmospheric although the red grouting in the brickwork is a little bizarre! In the middle of Alberobello, the restaurant is very large, spanning a block between two streets, with entances on both sides. Excellent food, especially the assorted antipasti of the house, which is... More

I believe the restaurant in the past was a wine cantene with very beautiful interior. The entrance is small but inside is huge. The stairs make it less convenient to those have to use stroller for their little baby. The service and quality though are just an average italian restaurant and a bit disappointing as we have been suggested from... More

We were delighted to discover this wonderful restaurant smack in the historic centre of Alberobello. The restaurant is accessed via steep steps leading down from a modest street level door way, blink as you walk by and you could miss out on a real treat! Once inside the interior of the restaurant is laid out with care, attention and good... More

Considering this restaurant is in the center of the historic area, it is gorgeous inside (with well-set tables, arched stone ceilings, and carefully decorated), the service was professional, and the food was delicious and imaginative.....we expected to pay MUCH more. After a bottle of (cheap) wine, an antipasto to split, a primo for each, a dessert to split, and a... More

Apparently one of the better restaurants in touristic Alberobello, but still a bit of a disappointment. Located in a beautiful cave in the picturesque world heritage area, but service and food were of rather average quality. Furthermore, we took a bottle of the more expensive Negroamaro, but should have sticked to simple house wine. Whilst the latter is usually young... More

This restaurant is underground in a converted oil mill. It had a very good wine selection. we had the mixed starter between 4 of meats, mozzarella, deep fried dough balls, spicy balls, souffle, tripe, sausage and bean puree. It was like a never ending starter - delicious and gave us the opportunity to try foods we wouldn't normally have entertained.... More

We have recently been to this wonderful restaurant again - been there 4 times. Even though we do not live in Italy, it is always a must for us to go to this wonderful place when we are near. Truly a place to discover. As they say " You cannot judge the book by its cover". The entrance is very... More

We tried to get into the Cantina but unfortunately we had not reserved a table so could not get in. No matter, the Casa Nova was brilliant. Superb decor and atmosphere and friendly and prompt service. We had a nice selection from the menu and all the food was delicious. Plently of locals and other tourists in the restaurant who... More
