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

Lunch time Saturday - October. 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

My wife & I had a meal here following a recommendation from the people we were staying with. The food is ok though nothing special. The problem area comes from the constant noise from young children running amok around the tables, something the staff seem to accept. The atmosphere is more akin to a branch of McDonalds than a proper... More

Hello dear customer, Our restaurant is renowned for being very quiet place where couples can dine in intimacy, we are sorry for this experience. You've probably been unlucky to happen in an evening with some child a little too "lively". Unfortunately, in these cases we can not "bind" the children or the parents scold, because experience has taught us that... More

I went to this restaurant in June and again in September . In June we ate outside and thoroughly enjoyed our meal, so went back. In June we ate outside in lovely surroundings and in September we ate inside in a beautiful vaulted old station building. It was like going to two different restaurants but the food was very good...

This is a large but pretty restaurant and was recommended by previous visitors to our villa. Excellent pizza that arrived very quickly for the kids, fantastic fried fish and one of the only menus that featured ravioli on our trip. Also fantastic desserts; an orange souffle and warm chocolate fondant to die for. Great value, around 70 euros for four.
