The specialties are the best!

Great meal for a very good price, with a family of 7, we only spent 128 euros! Atmosphere is families, great place!

Next to the central square away from "touristic" places, there is a little cozy restaurant were locals recommend to go and actually go. Do I have to add anything else??? Great meet selection, large variety of "bombette" little bombs of meat that explode of flavors in your mouth. Don't forget appetizers, even if they will fill you up a little... More

We were a group of 15 and we were served perfectly by the stuff. Everybody loved the food and wine. I was the only vegetarian and the owner took care of myself and let the kitchen prepare pasta for me.

For carnivores only but what a spot. Great value, meat was delicious and staff were very friendly. What more could you ask for?

A must visit for anyone going through cisternino. This rosticceria is known for you being able to choose meat at a butcher's display and subsequently choosing antipasti at the table. Service was good and we enjoyed our antipasti and meat. The place is very meat based, so don't expect to find seafood or much veggies. It's meat heaven, plain and... More

Maybe because we were there in September, and therefor not many tourists, we were the only foreigners between big Italian families. It's a paradise for carnivores! Simple interior, great chilled primitivo wine and a lovely english speaking hardworking waitress, who took her time explaining everything to us. We tried the donkey and the amazing veal filet. Be sure to get... More

Rosticceria is a specialty in this small but lovely town, and this is an excellent place to sample it. The meats were extremely well prepared. I'd also recommend the starters of donkey in a red sauce and the mortadella, both specialties of the house. Surprisingly budget-friendly given the quality of the meat.

We weren't really that hungry when we went there but as soon we saw all the delicious stuff we just had to get all the recommendations of the waiters. But the best were the starters, where you get six different local specialities and of course the salsiccia straight from the butcher. Always worth a visit.

Eating meat and choosing by the butcher is typical for Cisternino. So you have to do this. The taste of the meat is special. In the restaurant there is a kind of smell like in an abbatoir. But we have to say ... the italians like it a lot! Lot of people in this crowded place. For us ... not... More

If you like top quality meat cooked and served straight from the butcher, this is the place for you! Just point at what you want unless your Italian is good enough to discuss the various meat with the butcher, then it will be weighed , cooked to your liking and served at your table in the adjacent restaurant. Good choice... More
