Small cosy restaurant

This place has everything I like and expect from a restaurant. Good choice among dishes based on local ingredients and recipes, and this is also the case for vegan guests 💚 the staff is polite and competent. The olive oil is great.

This is a tiny restaurant but the service was good. The food was authentic food from the region. My girlfriend is from this area and it reminded her of her mother's food. Pleasant atmosphere and the menu is also in English if your Italian is terrible. I would eat here again.

Planning a trip in Apulia I put the tasting of the typical Apulian cuisine as a one of the most important points as I heard that it's really good. And I was really lucky to go to the Osteria Monacelle which is a really great place: traditional interior, really interesting and unique one, the typical Apulian cuisine and amazingle friendly...

Realy nice food. The only thing I found odd was the manager. wait staff were good, food was good, drinks were good price was good, not cheap but reasonable. You could do a lot worse than having a meal here.

We followed TripAdvisor travelers' recommendations to eat here. Everything was very satisfying. Service was very friendly, efficient and warm. Each of our dishes was excellent and a carafe of the house wine was very satisfying. We ended the meal with tiramisu, which was the best we have ever had. Very warm atmosphere and friendly staff. The owner was cooking behind... More

The hotel La Sommita recommended this place the day we arrived in town. We loved it so much that we ate there another meal. The food was very typical food for the area... The staff was very friendly and helpful... If your in Ostuni looking for a place to eat go here and enjoy.

This place not only has a brilliant atmosphere (there were no empty tables to be seen on a Monday night mid October), but serves the tastiest pasta dishes in all of Ostuni. I would highly recommend a visit, the food is beautifully fresh and everything is homemade before your eyes - there is a large window overlooking the kitchen where... More

Been twice in 3 days and it is perfect. Small restaurant with only 20 odd seats. An open kitchen with Mama cooking some delicious food and Papa sitting on a corner table keeping an eye on service. Superb food. Exactly the ambience you want in Ostuni. Very reasonable as well. Ask Rosario to recommend the wine - he picked two... More

took a cooking class then ate dinner. not sure of cost as it was included in our tour. good food and service. regional specialties. able and willing to accommodate vegetarian and gluten free diets. Family run and menu prices appeared to be good value. busy place so would suggest reservations.
