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

On a cold winter day...a picture of this restaurant was posted on my facebook page. I decided I had to go here. It was a once in a lifetime experience. On a super hot day above ground to go down inside the grotto and enjoy lunch was a wonderful experience. The grotto was cool, we were glad we went for... More

I was there two days ago with my girlfriend. It was her birthday and we wanted to do something special. Given the very high price, we expected a unique experience. What we got was a mediocre and extremely overpriced food that was served in a rush so they could free up the table for other customers. Don't waste your time... More

A really wonderful setting and a thoroughly enjoyable meal. We went to restaurant for its magical setting and was well worth it. You are truly with a gorgeous sea view. If there was one criticism it was that the waitresses did not explain the actual meal. We had 3 Degustazione and would have liked a little information on each course.... More
