We came to Ostuni with high expectations for a romantic place to spend the close of beautiful holiday afternoon. Here found a good place to enjoy Italian food at its best - no frills, focused on perfect ingredients.

This restaurant is a must if you are in Ostuni. It is wonderful local food in a family-run restaurant. I'd advise booking a table a few days in advance as this place is very popular with locals as well as visitors and it would be a shame to miss out. It is somewhere to come and have an aperitif, some... More

Menu was in Italian only but the very helpful waiter talked us through it and helped us with our choices salt cod and courgette flower frito excellent followed by pasta with porcini mushrooms then lamb chops for me and sea bream for...

We were recommended this as being the best restaurant in Ostuni, and from our experience we can believe that. Puglia cuisine is top quality and this was the best meal we ate all week. The ambience in the cave is magical, and we found the staff extremely helpful and friendly. Female waitress was only too happy to spend 5 minutes... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. Upon walking into town, we asked for directions and a few locals said it was the best in Ostuni. Upon walking into the restaurant, you are greeted warmly by Antonello. The ambience is charming, elegant and romantic. You are immediately served the most delicious focaccia I have ever tasted, followed by a cake... More

The restaurant itself has a lot of character and is nestled down a side street in Ostuni old town and helpful and friendly staff. Once seated a basket of bread and tarelli was placed on the table followed by frittata and deep fried veggi balls which were both very tasty. The menu was varied and the meal well presented however... More

Osteria del tempo perso looks wonderful as you approach via a tiny street in the old town. If you have come from out of town you would have already meandered up through the old town to find it. So by the time you arrive you have already been treated to the sights of a quaint old town. The cave part... More

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
