We came upon this beautiful restaurant and were immediately attracted by the amazing atmosphere and beautiful setting. We sat on the terrace but were stunned by the beautiful surroundings. The family who own it make us welcome without being overbearing, and as a party of 4 with vegetarian requirements there was no problem in meeting our needs. The waiters were... More

Alhough the location and ambience were promising, food was not what you'd expect for the price we paid. Staff was not very friendly.

I would agree with other reviewers in that the service was overbearing. We were told about the traditional nature of the food ad nauseam. It was very rich and arrived with indecent haste as others have stated. From the outside, it appeared very inviting but inside it was chintzy and verging on the over-religious. We asked for coffees to be... More

I've been there many times in the past few years and the place has never disappointed me.First of all, the quality of the food is amazing.Secondly, the service is extremely fast and polite. Every dish has its own history and the way it is served makes your mouth water immediately. The waiters treat all the customers with great dignity so... More

My friend mentioned this place and we decided to have dinner there. The restaurant itself is charming. If the weather is nice, you can sit outside on a beautiful patio and enjoy a glass of wine. We have dined at some of the best restaurants in the area and this one was a bit of a disappointment. You will do... More

Having joked that it wasn't possible to have a bad meal in Ostuni, we managed it on our last evening at La Taverna della Gellosia. The anti pasta (which others have raved about) were very overpriced, came out with indecent haste and weren't very nice. The experience wasn't enhanced by the rather overbearing service and the chintzy interior. I do... More

Have eaten here several times and enjoyed it. Anti-pasta is brilliant and some more adventurous dishes on the menu. Food is very good on the whole. Unfortunately on our last visit the puddings left something to be desired and the staff obviously wanted rid of us so they could go for their own Sunday lunch. They could do much better... More

It looks nice from the outside, but it turns out to be the opposite once you sit down. The lousiest wine we ever had in Italy (or actually anywhere in the world), the food was tasteless and the bill overpriced.

Dear, the wine you find so terrible comes from one of the most famous and award-winning wineries in Puglia, known all over the world. Compliments for your late palate. More

We liked the Taverna della Gelosia because of its charm and great ambiance. The food was lovely too, of course, but it's the ambiance that makes it special. A must visit, even if it's just for a coffee and cake.

Wonderful setting, whether outside under the vines or inside. i agree with another reviewer that the black rice with curried prawn was a mistake but the antipasti were superb. Wish i could go here for every anniversary!
