Really good

The food is great, and the atmosphere is very nice. Though I'd recommend booking as it's definitely one of the more popular places in town for it's quality

You will love the walk in the Old town just to get to this restaurant. Then as you enter,the feeling of authentic Italian is everywhere . Wether you eat in tha "cave" or the simpler restaurant next door is up to you. The kitchen and the menu is the same. Make sure you book ahead in the tourist season and... More

Delicious food - we had orecchiette, as well as courgette flowers to start (large enough to share). We drank excellent local wine. Lovely decoration, calming. Pretty busy so call ahead for a table.

I felt like a king in a cave! The restaurant is very romantic, candlelit, and in the heart of the medieval historical town. The food was fresh and delicious and they offered an amuse bouche. The olive bread was delicious and they give you a little ceramic plate for you to pour some oil in and dip the bread into... More

We ate here twice and were not disappointed on both occasions. The staff are very friendly and hard working. The bread and nibbles were lovely and the food was fantastic. Highly recommended restaurant and the recommended red wine (a Primativo) was very good.

We had very nice ravioli , lovely meat and fish dishes a good wine and quick efficient service. The beginning of June it was fairly quiet, but we thought we would be a bit claustrophobic with a full restaurant. At the back, the walls are natural rock, so it does feel like being in a cave. Note, I gather there... More

We loved this little restaurant in Ostuni, carved into the rock, it was beautifully lit with lots of atmosphere. We had booked a pre wedding dinner with a large group and the restaurant was very accommodating and patient, particularly when most of the guests were an hour and half late due to getting terribly lost in the little cobble stone...
