Our party of four had a really good meal at this restaurant. The dining areas are down flights of steps and it would be an excellent place for a romantic meal. The menu is predominately based on meat and vegetable dishes. The antipasti is superb and our main courses were excellent. Waiters are very helpful and friendly as was mine... More

Dined here on by chance. As we did not want to wait for an outside table we sat inside. Very nice. The food was fabulous. The anti pasto very different from the norm. About six different dishes, all delicious. Main courses were excellent. As the menu was in Italian the waiter explained everything on it. Service was excellent. Recommend.

Solo dining was awkward and unpleasant. Staff hovered ineffectively. Heavy food but ok atmosphere. I can't reccomend it. sorry. Grab a pizza in the beautiful winding streets of Ostuni. Resturant above has THE BEST VIEW. Try that!

Nicely located in the middle of the oll town of Ostuni, lovely both for lunch as well as for dinner. Rather steep stairs to get to the restaurant, so don't go there if you walk on crutches. They serve quite unique Italian dishes - like in the old days - which are delicious, but a bit on the heavy side... More

Can't imagine there's a restaurant in town that beats this one. Tables spill over vine covered terraces. Service is quick and friendly. Food very good. Off the Main Street down a windy path...ask the locals how to find it.

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
