İf you come to Alberobello you must dry local restaurant. First of all you choose what want to eat, very kind of meat, after that they are cooking and serve you. This area is butcher and cooking. A few tables are inside but clean and cheap. You can take bear or other drinking things. I enjoy it...

It was our 2nd time after 4 years. Grilled meat - you can choose from variety of meats - steaks, rolls and so on, from fridge. We had some mix of it and liked everything. Price is per kilo (everything (or most) is 20€/kg). So we ate really cheap. Side dishes - potatoes, salad is good also (only portion of... More

A pleasant restaurant specialising in grilled meats. You can make your choice from the refrigerated display counter. Two Main courses – chicken and chips and mixed meats, were accompanied by a bowl of Olives and bruschetta. Add a half litre of casa bianco and two can eat comfortably for less than €30.

We didn't know irestaurant, we chose it randomly. Location was good, there were tables outside that were right beside a large area that kids were running around. We had a starter, pasta, salad and beer. Starter was really good, pasta was allright, we had better in Italy. Service was not bad, it was full so waiters were quite busy which... More

Our family of five spent a long lunchtime here. Wonder at the total indifference of the staff. Be totally bewildered at how a restaurant can operate by ignoring their customers. Excellent rating is for the amazing way customers arriving after us were seated and served yet we remained invisible to the waiting staff despite attracting the attention of two waitresses.... More
