Flavours to remember

Fresh local produce cooked with love and talent. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable about their wonderful food and wine. Would love to have returned but they closed for holidays day after we discovered it!

I went to this restaurant with a friend who lives in Ostuni who highly recommended it. It didn't disappoint. The restaurant is in to parts, you enter into the bar area where you can dine, but this leads through to a spectacular rock cavern which is the main part of the restaurant. The menu was not huge, but the choice... More

We dined here and found the entire experience to be excellent. The ambiance was charming and historic. The staff was extremely friendly and took time to explain the history of the building. And, of course, dinner was amazing! We look forward to returning to this wonderful restaurant on our next trip to Ostuni.

My friends and I had dinner at Cavour while we were in Ostuni, the food was so delicious, we went back for lunch the next day. My favorite dish was the slow-cooked artichokes with parmagianno and fresh shaved truffles. Does not get any better than this. Until you meet the waitress, Alexandra. Wow, she gave us a complete history class... More

Once you enter the elegant coffe-bar you can't imagine to be a few steps away from one of the oldest olive oil factory of the area. A few steps below street level a cave nowadays hosts the restaurant. The kind waitress explained that it used to be a hidden underground olive oil press (frantoio ipogeo). The whole Ostuni was born... More

So tasty and comes complete with info about the olive oil making that took place in this exact location many years ago. Fabulous pasta and fish! I ordered the local fish and it was spectacular!

Decided to eat here after perusing the menu display outside and was amazed when we were shown through the front tables to a cave......Great service and fabulous food added to the occasion and we enjoyed some wonderful local dishes including squid in spaghetti and 'Stinko' which is a slow roasted lamb shank. A thoroughly enjoyable evening which I look forward... More

This restaurant is in a cave so the setting is very unusual. The service was very attentive, the staff could not have been more welcoming or helpful. The food was great, we had lobster pasta which was very good. The beef carpaccio and steaks were also excellent. Not the cheapest of our meals in Ostuni but well worth a visit... More

We were looking for somewhere to have lunch away from the tourist centre of Ostuni and spotted the Caffe Cavour as we walked up the road. It's easy to miss!!! We were the only diners - though I can see it being a very popular evening venue. A super setting, being the oldest olive mill in Puglia, apparently, and the... More

Based on reviews here, we visited for dinner tonight. Lovely venue, and very nice welcome. Food was actually the most expensive of our stay in Ostuni but was good, not great. Starters of beef carpaccio, vegetable and bacon soufflé and artichoke and truffles. These we're very nice. Mains of fresh grilled fish, grilled tuna, and pasta with tomatoes for our... More
