Loved the food and the atmosphere. Open kitchen with what seemed like generations of the same family. Loved the vegetable antipasti. Highly recommend, felt very authentic.

After two nights of disappointing food in Puglia we found this purely by luck. It is a very pretty restaurant, like a series of indoor caves, but prettily done and well lit. We had a lovely table, with lots of space and it was fantastic to see so many Italians eating here. They don't pander to tourists so you need... More

If you wish for traditional Puglian food then this is the place. Very small handwritten menu adds to the charm. The best course is the antipasto platter - which is varied and tasty. Main course is very rustic and limited with plentiful scallop potatoes and choice of grilled meats. Only 3 choices for dessert - the pannecota is recommended. Limited... More

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
