Lovely interior with equally lovely food. When we entered, we were escorted to the back room where we could see the kitchen in all of its glory. Two wise women were actively working on my our handmade food. We tasted freshness in every bite, and the waiters calmly explained any details of the food we wished to know. We are... More

We ate here a couple of times in the last week and have visited previously. The combination of the family atmosphere (mother and daughter + sometimes brother) and Angelo the manager - cousin? is really harmonious. The cooking is simple - home made pasta - made often in front of you - and then meat cooked over an open fire... More

Atmospehere and open kitchen all add to the allure and the steak was excellent - shame we had to wait so long that kids fell asleep and had to constantky ask for service. Fastest response was when we asked for the bill and we still had to leave without getting the coffee we ordered , as it took so long.... More

Ostuni is a tourist destination with the all the implications. However, it is possible to find restaurants that go beyond offering the usual suspects. Casa San Giacomo can be found in a side street, about 100 metres or so from the start of the road leading up to the cathedral. The side road is to the right and is just... More

You need to know the local food in order to appreciate in full the cuisine. The atmosphere is absolutely great in this kind of cave very well decorated and clean. The owner and the staff even if short of experience are very nice and make you feel like at home. The starter is all based on vegetable and very local,... More

The atmosphere is lovely and cosy, and it is nice to see the open kitchen with the family cooking. Unfortunately our food was not very enjoyable. One dish of pork was not cooked through, and a nasty tough piece of meat. The other of pasta was fine but the ricotta was forgotten entirely, had to wait to catch a waitress'... More

It was so Italian to sit in this restaurant & watch the lady chefs go about their work, particularly the hand rolling, shaping & cutting of the pasta ready for cooking. The menu is small but the food we had was excellent with everything being locally sourced. Combine that with good service & value for money & it means that... More

Located just off the old street heading up to the Cathedral, this is a delightful restaurant with an open kitchen set over several split levels, all open plans. However, as nearly all of the tables are indoors, the heat was intense during my visit. Jazz music is in the background. The Orrechiette with fresh tomato is a total pleasure. I... More
