Make a reservation!

The restaurant was right across the street from out hotel and it was a gem! The staff was friendly and although a little of a wait (very popular place) I was very pleased with my food! Get the zucchini soufflé

A nice surprise: it was a late lunch slot, but this restaurant welcomed us on a Sunday at 2 pm and offered simple but delicious food. The "Primo Piatto" was shrimp pasta, very tasty. It was followed by a "Secundo Piatto" of pan-seared tuna, delicate in taste, coated in sesame seeds. I'm sure the place had great "dolce", but we... More

We saw the reviews on TA, so we decided to have our last dinner in town here. The place was empty when we arrived at 8:30 and we wondered what was going on. It did fill up by the time we left at 10. Good selection on the menu and the prices are a bit high but fair for the... More

I spotted Osteria dei Mulini on our first quick visit to Polignano a Mare. We returned a couple of days later and after spending more time in the town I steered us back to this restaurant. I had no idea it had been reviewed quite favorably by the NYTimes. It was a fantastic experience. The owner so personable and charming,... More

We visit this restaurant by accident with my partner and our son! I had octopus and potato as a started! The portion is huge! And it was the best octopus I ever ever had! Amazing food! The staff are very friendly! Nice wine selection as well!

Excellent meals in a most pleasant atmosphere. Sea bass was expertly prepared, all pastas and vegetable are freshly made. Desserts are exquisite, and a good selection of local wines.

Nice and cosy restaurant just inside the entrance to the old town, very much enjoyed the food. Like most restaurants, by the time you've had your anti-pasta and prima-patti there's little room left for a third course or dessert so pace yourselves!

Had an excellent zucchini soufflé to start - should have had two - and some very tasty pasta. Relatively small and cosy. Good service.

Just inside the archway and inside the old town, this restaurant has good prices for dinners. We (2) had zuppetta di frutti di mare, raviolini melanzane (eggplant), and paccheri with seppia (squid) sauce. All of them were very good. With 1/2 liter of house wine, we spent 50 Euros.

This is a very special find . The food is inventive and delicious. I highly recommend the smoked burrata --the courgette soufflé and the fish soup. The wine was also outstanding. Enjoy!!!
