Good recommendation !

We went here as a family and had it recommended by the people we hired the villa from. It was a nice meal, perfect steak and nice to have some potatoes and vegetables after a week of pasta and pizza and home made cooking. The family all enjoyed the meals too. thank you !

La cità bianca ! Puglia is the best place to go in Italy ! The water is very clean ,the beach is awesome and the people are very receptive! Not forget to visit the nearby towns such as Lecce ,Gallipoli and Brindisi :) Must buy 1 souvenir!!!

The menu is a delight with local delicacies and typical puglian cuisine and served by great staff. The flavours are a delight every time we ate here the dishes were superb and the setting is magical.

The food was good but they charged us 32 euros for the antipasti misti for 2 and 6 euros for 2 coffees. It was a very expensive meal and the prices for definitely made up just for us. Be careful here and ask how much the antipasti misting are before you order. Nowhere in Puglia does an espresso cost 3... More

In all honesty, others enjoyed this place more than I. I found the service only adequate, the food choices limited ( I did not enjoy my meal although others did). The decor is wonderful, but no mixed beverages ... the green salad was just that ... greens ... All in all expensive, and a disappointment

Very nice interior in a cave with a lot of candles, bottles and atmosphere. All this contributed to a nice evening with good food. The bill was rather high for what you get, but normal in Ostuni.

Make sure you book in advance during busy season. Great wine list and service. Food is typical of the area and the portions are big. Definitely worth trying if you have a night in Ostuni

The dining area is essentially a cave and is superbly laid out giving diners a lovely ambiance in which to enjoy their food. We requested English menus which perhaps need to be refined. My 'lard on toast' was actually truffle shavings served on top of a piece of fried bread covered in cheese. There was a donkey option served in... More

We booked to go in the cave section of the restaurant. Very atmospheric. Staff very polite and friendly. However, The food definitely not equal to the surroundings. My own choice of Ravioli stuffed with ricotta with wild boar bolognaise was very nice, quite small portions though. I had to order other courses to compliment it. Two of our party ordered... More

We decided to spend the last evening of our vacation in Puglia in the Osteria del Tempo Perso - the Osteria of Wasted Time, and I guarantee we wasted no time at all. It is a nice restaurant made up of two parts, thus, big enough to go there even without booking in advance. The service is friendly, waiters are... More
