Pretty perfect place for lunch

We came to Polignano on a Sunday lunchtime looking for a nice place to eat before catching a flight from Bari. Just inside the medieval walls of the old town, we found this small Osteria, with tables outside and a few inside. It's in a great location, looked nice, seemed to be reasonable value... read more

Ideally located near the entrance of historic town, next to a small church. The scale is not that big, but nice facilities and atmosphere, service is also good. The most important thing is they provide very delicious seafood at reasonable price, cavatelli is a must-try item.

The outside seating is in the shadow of the old city walls by the gate and a great place to people watch. If you want to dine late like most Italians book - we came at 7.45 and had no problem but 10 pm was very busy. The pasta and ravioli was very good; the steaks a little rare for... More

The food was generally good, just under seasoned for me. I like tasty food. If I don't need to add seasoning then that's a bonus. Kind of tells me the chef has tasted it also. I had the local ear pasta (Orecchiette) with breadcrumbs in a simple tomato sauce with a nice local beer called Viola Bionda (which I had... More

Nice little restaurant with street seating. My wife had the tuna with sesame seeds that we both thought was great. We also had the local delicacy of mussels, rice, and potatoes that was also good. Had more mussels than at other restaurants. I had the grilled red shrimp which I don't recommend. We would go back.

We were in Polignano a Mare in April during an unprecedented cold spell. This restaurant was a high point in our sleet- and rain-soaked stay. The food was delicious, the service was excellent. The location is nice, right inside the wall in the historic center. I highly recommend it and would go again.

We stopped here for a light lunch and had a very good meal, I had smoked burratine, this is a delicious cheese made from buffalo milk, heaven, the red prawns a delight as was the steak manzo, if you want tasty food locally produced this is the place to come.

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
