Since fifteen years, Osteria di Chichibio is an elegant seaside restaurant where you can taste specialties of fresh fish at 0 km. The catch, daily, at 0 km, sea (not farmed) is the absolute protagonist of the kitchen Chichibio, expressed a kitchen where everything is cooked in a natural way through the cooking in the wood oven. Among the dishes considered to be real must Chichibio: shellfish Catalan, redfish gratin, saint peter with the potatoes and in general all the fish dishes, from appetizers to the former to the latter. Passion and acceptance of the two owners, brothers Giacomino and Vito are added value to the success of Chichibio.

Great food, great atmosphere!

I went here during lunch hour with my family. The restaurant was almost empty when we arrived, but it filled up pretty quickly. The caprese salad I ate as a starter was very good and so was the fish, which was my following meal. The interior is amazing and my family couldn't stop admiring the tiny... read more

I had visited this restaurant on our last trip to Italy in 2013. It was an amazing experience then and even more this time. The taste and quality of foods tops all. Traditional foods of this area are my favourite in Italy. I highly recommend this restaurant for its fine foods, great service, great locating and attention to detail. A... More

The restaurant is very nicely decorated with lots of details that you want picture. It is immediately obvious that it is expensive restaurant, from fork to plate and glass. The menu is varied, the food is very carefully prepared and the wine list excellent. The staff is very professional and we enjoyed two hours in the beautiful ambience.

This was our only disappointing eating experience in a week of dining out in Puglia. I had a very small fish priced by the Kg. Don't fool yourself - the very smallest portion will be 0.4Kg so you are looking at pay just under half of the per kilogram cost. I'm very happy to pay 24E for a piece of... More

We luckily got a table here on a Sunday lunch without a reservation, and the entire restaurant filled up shortly after. We got beautiful fish, expertly and elegantly served crudi (also served separately was the fried carcas of the fish to pick at) fabulous roasted local fish with olives and tomatoes, and two servings of raw red shrimp, one of...

Ilike variety of food but it's always full and the price is very expensive because the plates are very poor

The delicious food here is made with local ingredients specializing in the many varieties of fish. The portions are a decent size and wines delicious. The service is very good and attentive.

It is hard to imagine better simple baked whole fish with olives and tomatoes. Light wine-based sauce. As good as any I can remember and priced within range of ordinary mortals. Waiter responsive and very good preparing the fillets; tables well separated; very comfortable. Excellent wine list with, again, reasonable prices.

If you are looking to go for some fresh sea food, this is not the bad place. Wine list is fine, sea food variety is there. Enjoy.

I'm a gourmet and an italophile. We were here 3 times in 3 days and had the most amazing pasta of our lives. The fish was also great
