Visited here recently and loved the place. Food was first class and worth paying that little bit extra for. Staff were a little hurried but it was probably their busiest week of the year. They still looked after us well and the meal was absolutely wonderful. Not overly expensive considering the location and quality. Definitely recommended.

Nice location in the heart of Ostuni, and they kindly fitted us in without a reservation after a short wait. This restaurant had been recommended but to be fair we left slightly disappointed. The food was average and the service frustrating, as they were more interested in resetting tables than serving those of us waiting. Nothing bad, but nothing great... More

We enjoyed a delicious meal here whilst on holiday. It was extremely busy and so we booked in advance. We arrived and were politely shown to our table. The interior was cool and tranquil and the restaurant had a really nice feel to it. Our waiter was lovely and served us some parsley, bread and aubergine croquettes to start with... More

we went here one week ago after two years. Lovely place, romantic and charming, but also a special place to eat. I suggest you the orecchiette con cime di rapa...amazing! The price is relating to the place and cooking level...see you next time!

We ended up here quite late on a Saturday night and they kindly made space for us to eat. We were glad they had ! We had lovely tuna tartare, great pasta and my personal favourite of cassata for dessert. The staff could not have been more helpful and service was great. Recommend you try this restaurant

We had a lovely meal here one night during our holiday. The starters were some of the best food we experienced during our stay and the location in a "cave" was fantastic. Would recommend!

We had dinner in this osteria. The place is very romantic, well located. The food was very good, although we ordered too much (!). The starters are actually like a second course !! We went for zucchini flowers stuffed w/ mozzarella, truffle risotto and traditionnal eggplant parmiggiana. The tripadvisor ratings are well deserved. Very good restaurant of you visit Ostuni
