We came twice in this place! Great food, great hospitality. There were not a lot of guests ... we don't understand this. First time we took the antipasta. What a richness of flavours of fresh local products! If you take this one, your dinner is complete! They have a special formula you can taste different (small) portions. This is an... More

We dine here on a weekly basis. The atmosphere so pretty and the food delicious. Jean Pierre the chef is very talented. Maria Pia is a gem, always there for a perfect recommendation and will provide you with a fun and enchanting experience. I highly recommend the antipasti of the house with a bottle of wine from the area. They... More

I Templari is one of the reasons why everyone loves Italy: genuine hospitality, excellent food, amazing atmosphere, attention to every detail. This restaurant is outstanding in every way. The owners (hostess and the chef) are passionate about their business and clearly pour their hearts into creating the best eating experience for each and every one of their guests. The food... More

Ended up at the Templari a bit by accident. Well, a genuine surprise. The most amazing thing about the restaurant is not only the food, but the fact that the owner explains in detail what it's on the menu in a very passionate and honest way. In how many restaurants, you're told that if you're not that hungry it's better... More

We visited for my dads birthday. My mum and day are vegetarian but my daughter and I are not. I checked when booking that it was OK and I was told it was no problem. We arrived about 8:30 and were shown to a lovely table by an open fire. The dining room is beautiful, not very big, very intimate.... More

This became our local "restaurant" because of two things. First the owner/chef and his lovely fiancé , who made us feel at home from the very first. And second, the FOOD, was outstanding. We have been traveling Europe for 90 days and in each location we looked for that special place we would continuously go back to. This became "our... More

After perhaps overindulging most of the week we planned on being a tad more abstemious during our visit ti I Templari, two courses only maximum, it just didn't turn out that way! The ristorante is at the northern edge of the old town down some steps but is easy to find if looking. We were welcomed and offered a choice... More

We had walked past this restaurant several times before finally negotiating the steps and entering. What a pleasant surprise, the dining area is a vaulted basement overlooking the Vale of Itria. We were warmly welcomed and offered a choice of seating. All the tables had crisp white tablecloths over a heavy crimson under-cloth (refreshing for Italy). We were given a... More
