Cool bar, excellent soundtrack. 9 craft beers on draft. Extensive wine selection: no wine list, all between €10 and €12 a bottle. Oh, and the food is as good as I have tasted ever. Home cooking done with flair. Try the homemade cheesecake with fig syrup...

I was recommended this place by a friend who had visited when he was in Polignano and it was a great recommendation. We only had drinks here, both nights we visited (!), but the beer and wine selection was great. Some local small brewery beers as well as some overseas stuff (from the US and England) on tap and there... More

We had dinner with some frends in this restaurant in a cozy, relaxed atmosphere. Food and wine are just spectacular and the owners are really friendly and welcoming. I definitely recommend this place if you want to experience some innovative cuisine made with traditional, local ingredients.

A little gem of a restaurant with lovely, helpful staff. Lovely flavours in the food. A great tasting menu, 3 courses with 3 different wines for €18!! Lots of information about the local food and wine. Flexible style of eating, have full dinner or a plate at the bar or just a glass of wine or beer.

We stayed in Polignano for a week and, unfortunately, didn't get round to eating here. However, we came here a number of evenings for a few late-evening glasses of wine and really recommend it as an atmospheric, friendly bar with very reasonably priced drinks. It has a distinctive 'cave-like' interior typical of many local restaurants in the area, and looks... More

The atmosphere is quite informal, which suited the stone walls and high ceilings, giving the place both an historic feel and and an exotic one. We were looking for local, authentically prepared dishes and certainly found some there: remembering that sometimes "local" and "authentic" can spell simple and basic, still the preparation was good- if not inspired- and we appreciated...

We stayed in Polignano for 9 days, tried lots of little restaurants and found that one was the greatest. It's located on a big place and the terrasse of the restaurant has the best view to look at people or to see the animations in Polignano (concerts, animations in August). The staff was GREAT, super cool and super kind with... More

The staff was very accommodating. The outdoor seating area was full, but they discussed the situation among themselves, then quickly rearranged a few tables and added one for me. One of the waiter's spoke English and explained the entire menu to me (way beyond the call of duty!), and then made several wonderful recommendations when I asked what was typical... More
