Beautifully cooked, beautifully presented modern/haute-cuisine takes on classic Pugliese food. Run by three brothers, this is a formidable restaurant offering incredibly professional and, more importantly, passionate service.

Beautifully cooked, beautifully presented modern/haute-cuisine takes on classic Pugliese food. Run by three brothers, this is a formidable restaurant offering incredibly professional and, more importantly, passionate service. What's more, for food and wine of this quality, the prices are unbelievable (at least for a Londoner!). The restaurant is a bit too brightly lit, but everything else was truly and honestly... More

Having read previous reviews and checked out the website I was really excited about dining at Quintessenza and I was certainly not disappointed. My girlfriend and I enjoyed three delicious courses of some of the finest produce of Puglia. Every course was executed superbly both in cooking and presentation and the service was very friendly. I'd been emailing Domenico to... More

Thanks David, it was a pleasure to read the feelings of your dinner; I really wanted the experience to be a mix of emotions and sensations, but above all our spontaneity and genuineness, sincerity on the human side. I will keep the memory that we meet through the pictures you've posted. Say hello to Fiona too and best wishes for... More

While on a short trip, I asked the concierge in Trani Italy about a good place for dinner. ....His recomandation was spot on, this local restaurant is a jewel in the heart of Puglia and well far ahead of the usual resort restaurants, The cuisine is local but reinvented and delicious, the service is awesome, and the place was packed...

Very friendly service with you staff, food is perfect, very fresh ingredients. Seafood is a must. You get what you pay for! One of my favourites in Puglia. Just great.

We had such an amazing night tonight, great food, wine & service. We've eaten in a lot of Michelin restaurants around the world and without trying to sound snobby this one is seriously up there. If Michelin starred food is sometimes outside your price range - and let's be honest it is for most of us - this is a... More

This was a wonderful experience! The food was excellent and inventive, the service was charming and the price was a fraction of what we expected to pay. Also, an excellent regional wine was proposed that was surprisingly inexpensive.

Being foodies and in the region for easter, we had to book a table and try this very well rated restaurant. First of all the interior design is a wonderful mix of modern and traditional Italian architecture. You can also see an interesting library at the entrance with books given to then from famous chefs from other restaurants from all... More

LeCacoin, it was a pleasure to share the Quintessenza experience and you cannot imagine how much we appreciate your words considering your cultural gastronomy background, also considering with which admiration and inspiration we look and analyse the tendences happening in your country and how evolves the top end of gastronomy; as well we try to create a dining experience that...

If you ever happen to travel to beautiful Apulia, you shall not miss it! Four young brothers have set up this delight about 4 years ago: the eldest one is the chef, the youngest is his helping hand in the kitchen, one is the maître and the other one the sommelier. They put so much passion in what they do... More

While you're travelling in Puglia you will easily find great food & wine, but if you're passing by Trani (and even if you're not that close by) this restaurant has to be in your list! It's a group of young professional that have decided to mix some of the most classical dishes from the region with few small details able... More

This meal was an adventurous delight! Everything about the evening was wonderful, from the service to the beautifully presented dishes, which should actually be framed and in a museum, to the unexpected and incredible flavors which accompanied each bite of what was in front of you. I can't recommend it any stronger! If you are in Trani, and are a... More
