Very special place, the staff is so attentive and the food was out of this world.m I prefer lam tetras but the owners vintage Vespa in the entry from added a nice bit of Italy to go with the ambiance. 4 of us had our best meals of the trip at this special place.

This restaurant has it all. Ambience, service, presentation and imagination of the food. All cooked to perfection. Just oozes class, without burning a whole in your wallet. If you are visiting Cisternino, would highly recommend Sant Anna. The restaurant is across the road from the railway station and once you see the interior, you would not recognise it from the...

We ate with family at this place. Anti-pasta was great (carpaccio of fish mmmmm) The mussels, ravioli, pasta was great. And certainly try the desserts! They told us the chef of this restaurant is a cookingteacher. And that's what you taste, there is craftmansship at this place!

This restaurant ranks with the very best in Europe with many outstanding and innovative dishes. The prices are similar to virtually all the restaurants in Cisternino (and elsewhere in Puglia).

This restaurant has an amazing atmosphere and the food and wine to match. The presentation of the desserts is outstanding! The restaurant was recommended to us by a local and it became perhaps our favorite restaurant of our entire Italy trip! It was so good we ate there twice in 3 days. The staff are lovely and were very helpful... More

After our first meal at Osteria Sant' Anna we could not wait to return...and our second dining experience only added to our high esteem for this splendid restaurant. Not crowded during our lunchtime visits, the service was attentive and helpful. Most important, the cuisine was consistently superb and beautifully presented, exceeding our expectations! The selection of local wines was ample,... More

First finding the restaurant, it is directly opposite the railway station, but the exterior of the building gives no hint as to what the inside is like (from photos on the site) therefore its is easy to miss particularly if coming east to west. Once inside its exactly as the photos depict. There were children... More
