Located in old town close to gate and just off the main square, we lucked into this restaurant after strolling around and checking out several others. At first the service was a little cool and less friendly than we had encountered elsewhere. This was not peak season but the restaurant was busy so... read more

Dei Mulini offers good local seafood in a nice old town setting. A tad more expensive than the other resaurants in the neighbourhood - keep in mind that Polignano is a major tourist destination of the area. Recommended.

I had the famous local red prawns, they were the best I'd eaten whilst in Polignano - so sweet - perfection. And, if they weren't enough of a delight I opted for the gelato dessert - wow - the most perfect cassata ever. I can't wait to return (hopefully next year). All of this and set in the most picturesque... More

There were four of us and we shared a whole baked flounder, with oven roasted potatoes and other vegetables. It was one of the best meals we had in Italy.

The atmosphere is good, but the focus is the food. It is a bit more expensive than other places we ate at this region, but worth every penny. Dishes are sophisticated, real cuisine. The city disappointed us because it is too touristic, but the restaurant makes the visit worth it. Order the selection of the house's appetizers.

Nice lunch - one of few choices in the off-season. Good seafood, nice staff/owner. Seemed a little pricey for a simple lunch.

The staff is great and the food is excellent. It is the first place you see as you enter the old walls and is right next to the large church. Lovely atmosphere.

I really like the location so close to the old buildings and the city wall and relatively quiet compared to the restaurants outside the Centro Storico or in the more crowded places. The food is always great. I don't eat seafood but everyone keeps telling me how excellent and extraordinary the Carpaccio di Polpo is. My pasta and meet are... More
