To the mention we had traveled half around the world and were leaving the next day: No reservation, no restaurant. I have NEVER been... More

I would recommend a stop here to everyone in So. Italy. This restaurant is absolutely beautiful, the views are spectacular and the service was phenomenal, as well as the food. Due to weather we had to switch our reservation from dinner to lunch. The prices are high and dinners are a 3 plate minimum but lunch is a whole different... More

Not recommend to anyone. The place is extremely expensive for a poor quality of service. The view is beautiful but the ristorante don't has a music ambient and you has to hear the waiters laughing all the time of your customers. That was the worst reception ever had in a restaurant.

For the location and experience alone, this place is worth a visit. We were there on the evening of Aug 8th, 2014 for a unique experience. The restaurant location is unique & spectacular. The food, especially if you are not a fish or seafood person, like us, was limited in choice and only ok. Prices overall are on the high... More

Although The location is absolutely breathtaking, The service is awful. It seems that since they know they are full anyway they are arrogant and not very keen on giving good service. It seems they want to take as much money they can in The shortest time. You are obliged to take at least three courses so we took The tasting... More

Although this wasn't the best meal that we have had, we would have to say that the food, service and the atmosphere all combined made this a truly unique and memorable experience. We chose the pre-set menu which we rarely do. The appetizer was a plate of raw seafood and although very good, my wife prefers her food cooked. The... More

This restaurant was the sole reason we chose to base ourselves in Polignano. I had read the reviews but chose to ignore them and to make my own mind up as so wanted to experience the magic. Unfortunately I can only concur with the experience of so many others. As soon as we arrived we headed for the restaurant to... More
