Sadly only discovered on the last evening of our holiday so we only had the one fabulous meal there. Amazing venue, superb choice of food, excellent wine and extremely friendly staff. Cannot recommend highly enough. Go for l'ouzo (the Egg) sweet, you won't regret it!

Osteria Sant’Anna is directly opposite Cisternino’s small train station outside the central station but well worth the short drive. We arrived there at 7PM to find that they don’t serve dinner until 8PM, so we napped in the car until 7:45. Chef/owner was nice and we joked about the dining schedule of locals vs. tourists. The large, beautiful dining room... More

Nothing was to much trouble especially as there must have been at least 200 covers, anybody that likes good food and service should not give this restaurant a miss if visiting cisternino, we are already planning our next...

Recommendation provided by our Trulli al Mancia owner as his personal favorite. There at 19:30 and seated but kitchen open at 20:00 with only tourists present on Halloween evening until 21:00 when Italians began arriving. High season may warrant reservations. Despite beautiful rooms and formal dinner settings the place was comfortable for two having just traveled over 400 miles that... More

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...
