Lovely restaurant with good food

Our group had dinner at the La Taverna della Gelosia during our recent cycling trip in Puglia. The service was fast and friendly and our server answered all our questions with respect to their menu and wine list. The food was great and we had an enjoyable evening at the restaurant.

Lovely little restaurant tucked down a side street with steep steps onto a couple of terraces set out with dainty romantic tables with a sweeping view of the sea in the distance. Thanks TA for recommendations from others had the shared antipasti and one main course each swilled down with an excellent bottle of wine. The 8 antipasti dishes were... More

We had a good lunch here but perhaps didn't choose the best dishes. I could see from other tables the antipasti looked great, but my black rice was tasteless and I left half and was possibly a bad choice because it is not typical of the region. However, my partner's orecchiette pasta was really unctuous and flavoursome and the best... More

We spend an fabulous evening in this place full of stairs between the old town walls and covered by ceiling trees. The antipasti were the best we had during our stay in Italy. Very tasty and original. We liked it so much! The primi and secondi were very good too. The pasta with Gorgonzola and walnuts were the best I... More

One of the best meals we had on our 2 weeks in Puglia. Great setting with tables on different levels some with views down to the sea from Ostuni. The mixed antipasti were amazing; about 8 different dishes, all wonderfully fresh and light. If only more "Italian" restaurants in the UK could replicate this kind of food! the main courses... More

The food was amazing, do try the mixed antipasti. The slow cooked pork was also very good. The service was friendly and efficient and the settng magical, a little tropical oasis in the white city of Ostuni.

We came across this place whilst having lunch at La Gilda next door. The setting is fantastic - a series of terraces down the hillside from the street. The staff were friendly and took time to explain the menu in English. It is not an extensive menu but the food was so good that we went there twice in 4... More

Hidden away, we were treated to a relaxed lunch by some friends - you might not find this place by just passing by - it's not on the main drag up the hill. The setting is really lovely, gorgeous terrace, lit by fairy lights, vines growing, amazing views - just how you might imagine the most romantic Italian setting! We... More
