The Candina of Seppetise comes from a family tradition. In 2005, after 30 years of closure, came back to life this inn, once a meeting place for many of Ostuni, which repeats the old traditional tastes and flavors of earth and sea of Puglia. The restaurant, in the square of Ostuni, has the typical structure of the place with less than 2 caves, one of which is ideal for a romantic dinner ...

This restaurant was a brilliant find: the interior, the hospitality and food quality are unparalleled. Especially delicious was the broad bean puree, the burrata, and any of the pasta dishes (we returned after our first visit to sample more).

Great fresh food - served with friendliness. You'll be as delighted with the food and wine as you will be with the ambience - dining with an unusual "down-to-earth" interior view.

In an alley just behind the Piazza della Independenza (the main square) this excellent little restaurant is easily overlooked. That is a real pity, for the food is excellent, the service efficient and friendly and the atmosphere very distinctive - it seems to be in a cave. Best of all perhaps, there was no deafening background music. We ate there... More

We went here with a large group of friends and had a fantastic time! The staff were very helpful and attentive, the wine was REALLY good and the food didn’t disappoint either. Wouldn’t recommend for a romantic night but for a few friends and a lighthearted atmosphere, this is not to be missed in sleepy Ostuni.

We liked this place and went back again. It is a more up market place for Ostuni, but not desperately so. Food was VERY good. Service excellent, and setting too, being partially an Ostunian (?) cave, as with many places.

This was recommended by Masseria Tolla and we were shown to a table at the back, in the cave part of this restaurant which made the experience quite special. We had a lovely meal, the service was good, and the bill very reasonable.

I went there with a bunch of friends some weeks ago. The food was ok, but not great. We were especially disappointed by the service, which was pretty bad. We got the main dishes before the starters and we waited 40 minutes to get the bill. We were particularly disappointed with the starters, which, unlike most restaurants in south of... More
