Well worth seeking out for the location alone

A lovely location with staggered terraces spread over several levels making an enchanting setting. The welcome was warm and friendly with excellent English spoken to help poor linguists like me!

We went here for lunch after finding the restaurant we wanted to go to was closed. They did a very good value 25 euro menu for lunch, the food was delicious and they were great with the children serving a pasta and pesto or tomato sauce for them. The pannacotta dessert was delicious and came with a variety of different... More

The food was incredible and the location made it all the more enjoyable - under a canopy of greenery on a hot day, what more could you ask for?

We went to this restaurant as it was reccomended to us however we found the staff a bit stuffy and patronising, the food was over priced and not a lt of it. I had the steak and it came with the smallest baked potatoe I have ever seen, my wife had the pork and it came on it's own ie... More

Very romantic taverna. Popular, so book or go early. Great food. Good service from the staff. Lots of steps to all the terraces, not suitable if you have mobility problems. Ha d a very pleasant evening.

Yes it is quite difficult to find but well worth the effort. You first come to a pizza restaurant and they must get very fed up with people asking for directions to Gelosia which is a little further on through the alleyway. But what a lovely evening we had! The setting is delightful with lovely views and a beautiful flower-filled... More

We came across this place after failing to get into another option. Given that we had pushchairs navigating the steep steps at the top was a bit of a chore, to say the least. However it was well worth the effort, we had an excellent meal at anti-pasti to share was a great choice - something for everyone. The mains... More

Ostuni is a great place to visit and this restaurant is in line with the magic of the place. Very interesting place and excellent food. Nice people as well. Worth the visit!

Lovely atmosphere in central Ostuni. Food was only OK. Very salty and not representative of other local options. Terrible house wine. We got a few carafes of wine to share, the second round was a different wine or very off. Waiter was defensive. Yummy fresh pasta, but avoid the "lasagna". Service was friendly. If you are a couple looking for... More

This restaurant was a little hard to find because it is tucked away on a little alley way in the old section of the town of Ostuni and the sign was covered with growing vines. It was worth the effort. We sat outdoors and were seated at a table that was located down a flight of stairs on a patio... More
