That was one the best see food I've ever had. All the food was fresh and tasty. Waitress were very great and fast and smiling. The restaurant is based in old part of the town next to the harbor and you can see sunset from the outdoor seating. I really enjoyed the evening, food and everything.

We were warmly welcomed by the owner who provided excellent recommendations of seasonal foods and specialty dishes of the day. As the weather was perfect we opted to sit outside and the array of dishes, both vegetables, seafoods and pasta were exceptionally fine and varied. The regional wines were also delicious.

We are just back from our first trip to the Salentina peninsula. Despite the unseasonal cool showery weather, we were enchanted... not least with Gallipoli which must be one of its most beautiful towns. We were lucky enough to park neat the Trattoria Portolano which looked ideal for lunch. As London 'foodies' I like to think we are discriminating but... More

Be careful if the host says that he is bringing you a little sample of his "antipasto" because the portion is so large, you won't be able to stomach anything else. The food is delicious and the atmosphere great.

Franco and Lucia are the most charming and welcoming hosts you could hope to come across, the restaurant has been newly rennovated and is delightful, the food is outstanding and the price is more than reasonable. What more could you want? It can be difficult to find good places to eat in Gallipoli at fair prices, particularly during the busy... More
