A charming place, a restaurant with all the features to become "historical", since it stands where the first stones of Neapolis were placed in the far Middle Ages, today Polignano a Mare. Antiche Mura Restaurant is like the "Rotonde", the enchanting restaurant of the monumental Hotel Negresco in Nice, the place preferred by the most renowned people. Our idea is to realize an attractive corner of the Apulian cuisine, combining simplicity and refinement of choice. What strikes, apart from our good cuisine, is the refinement of our restaurant and the attention paid to every single detail. Finally, natural politeness and professionality will make the atmosphere pleasant and harmonious, for an unforgettable moment to spend together with other people.

If you are vacationing in Polignano al Mare, put this restaurant on your short list! Romantic, beautiful, warm interiors make it feel like a gem far from the packs of people touring the streets. The restaurant itself is like being in a cavern - it seems practically built into the old city walls. So it is beautifully decorated and atmospheric.... More

This meal was an event. The beautiful interior of the restaurant tells you it is going to be a fine dining experience. It was. From the procession of antipasti, to the dolce and the after dinner chocolate...This was a very special treat. Wonderful, wonderful! We indulged for several hours, some of that time just relaxing between courses, watching as the... More

N.Y. Does have a few good restaurants. Antiche Mura is the equal or better than most of them. Everything from the moment we entered beat our expectations. The setting, service, and the food is spectacular!! The price was more than fair and we would highly recommend the restaurant to one and all. Ciao.

The structure and decor inside the restaurant, essentially the "antiche mura" create a perfect atmosphere. The staff are welcoming and helpful, the menu nicely varied and the wine list rich. The mixed antipasti recommended by the house are abundant and very good and the selection of fish mains is nice. Two of us opted for pasta dishes as a main... More

My boyfriend and I stumbled across this gem while we were searching for a restaurant in Polignano A Mare. They were very busy and even though we did not have reservations, they found a spot for us. The service was impeccable! They were so friendly and helpful. We tried the "tasting menu" and it was amazing! Every dish we got... More

We discovered this charming little restaurant on a side street of the town. The wait staff were outstandingly courteous and helpful as we navigated the menu, which is available in English. They speak English very well there. We were surprised with a delicious appetizer of thinly sliced pickled eggplant and bread served as we waited for our food. Our dinners... More

This place has a lovely back room and the greeter (might be the owner?) was very eager to please but not really at the tables much. His mama was watching a TV next to me that drowned out the ambient music, but the people further away would be fine. I would find a table deep into the place and avoid... More

Overpriced, stale bread reheated, poor fish selection. Disinterested waiters, asked if we would like sorbets after dinner and when we accepted, we foundd they had been added to the bill. Fish is charged per 100g. Better value to be found nearby wih better service and friendlier staff.

Description

A charming place, a restaurant with all the features to become "historical", since it stands where the first stones of Neapolis were placed in the far Middle Ages, today Polignano a Mare. Antiche Mura Restaurant is like the "Rotonde", the enchanting restaurant of the monumental Hotel Negresco in Nice, the place preferred by the most renowned people. Our idea is to realize an attractive corner of the Apulian cuisine, combining simplicity and refinement of choice. What strikes, apart from our good cuisine, is the refinement of our restaurant and the attention paid to every single detail. Finally, natural politeness and professionality will make the atmosphere pleasant and harmonious, for an unforgettable moment to spend together with other people.
