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

We ate here one evening, we were first to arrive so staff were still finishing their meals. Despite this the staff gave us prompt attention and provision of the menu and explained short delay for the chef to start his shift. Food very average, nice surroundings staff charming

We had gotten there a little bit before they actually opened, but they seated us and brought us a glass of wine. Located in a restored olive mill, you have to go down underground to get there. Décor had pieces from the old olive mill and overall a nice atmosphere. Plenty of selection from the menu. Fresh veggies in the... More

Nice underground restored olive mill, high arched ceilings, maybe a tad over-illuminated. All the usual suspects on the menu, but nicely prepared and served. The branzino was quite nice; a whole fish (that is two filets) nicely grilled and served over diced tomatoes with lots of olive oil; simple but delicious. Over half the restaurant was taken over by a... More

We chose this restaurant partly because of the good reviews we read on TA (you need something to distinguish from the many restuarants in town), and we were not disappointed. The staff were just the right side of 'snotty', and even though we were obviously not big spenders we were treated very well, and there was a decent selection of... More
