Went this week for our second visit to Sant'Anna. Both times, the food, service and ambiance has been flawless. Special mention to the Uova dessert, something you'd be happy to eat at any top end restaurant. Add to this a bill for four with drink at less than £100 and you're also getting decent value for money.

It's like 4 restaurant spaces in one! Behind a nondescript exterior lies a wonderful dining experience. We ate at a table on the outdoor terrace, and had an excellent meal. The menu selection was varied, and we all chose different dishes over three courses. The service was just right - attentive but not over-bearing, and we received good advice (and... More

Visited this restaurant this evening after a recommendation from our Trulli owner and just had to post a thumbs up immediately. I am not a foodie by any means but appreciate good food and a pleasant ambience and this place has both in spades. We didn't book but would suggest if you are planning a visit that you do. Despite...

What a pleasant surprise we encountered, as we entered this somewhat hidden restaurant located just across the plaza from the train station.The dinning rooms with their vaulted ceilings are understated, but lend to a smartly designed space.. The interior blends traditional elements with an understated contemporary vibe. The menu features locally raised beef and produce. The wait-staff introduced us to... More

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
