Just right for light lunch

Having eaten a few too many delicious but heavy meals in sequence, we were looking for a lighter meal to bridge a day of touring. Fontanella 1914 is just the place. Diners choose from a selection of small meat cuts--main course "bon-bons"--which are grilled and served family style. A small pitcher... read more

Sightseeing in Alberobello, we stopped here for lunch. A plain and simple dining area but very good food prepared at the back of a butcher's shop. The meat cooked to perfection, a selection of 5 pieces per person and salad and chips to go with it. A carafe of local wine and plenty of bread, oil and olives. 11€ per... More

This is basically a butchers shop where you choose from the meats on display in the chiller and have it cooked and served outside at a table, together with salads, crudo vegetables and chips etc. nice for a change and inexpensive.

We were there for quick lunch prior to a business meeting. We ordered 2 main courses and asked for one starter. The waitress informed us that the starter was not available - which can happen. 3 other customers arrived 20+ minutes later and were allocated a table next us. They ordered the same main course as we did. 5 minutes... More

Selected from the counter, the meat was grilled, flavorful and delicious, and a good value. The pollo lunch special was a full chicken, juicy and tender, served with fried potatoes. Including a mixed salad for two, plus bottled water and coperto came to 22 euros, enough delicious food to fill us and have us return!

Sitting al-fresco next to the 1914 water pump, I was served a delightful meal, and beverages by a pleasant waitress who had a sense of humour. The menu is varied, and is fresh food. I recommend this small restaurant for solo travellers and couples who have a travel budget to consider. Clean toilet facilities are inside the restaurant.

After walking around the beautiful trulli's the smell of meat cooking tickled our noses. At what looks like a sidewalk tabled cafe and butcher shop, we found the source. A limited menu but the house reputation is built on pick your own meat from the fresh meat display and then it will be prepared and cooked in the local Puglian... More

We would never have realised what it was without the recommendation. It looks just like a butcher's shop from the outside. Inside, you choose your meat; many different types of meat rolled eg bacon around veal. They then cook it in their special rotisserie style. At our table we enjoyed bruchetta on the house, the chosen meals, salad, olives, delicious... More
