On the way back to Bari Airport we decided to have a quick stopover in Monopoli and quite by chance stumbled across this hidden gem. Friendly service, excellent menu, lovely food, great location. What more can I say?

We have just dined in La Vecchia Taverna and enjoyed the most traditional meal we have experienced whilst travelling in Puglia. Owned and operated by Vito his wife and chef Antonietta and their 4 daughters, this family operated restaurant is a jewel in this seaside town of Monopoli. The restaurant has a welcoming atmosphere with an outdoor terrazzo with a... More

This resturant is a little difficult to find but well worth the search. We had lunch on the terrace. It was delicious and the service was second to none.

Served by the friendly english speaking host and perfectly cooked by his wife. Wonderful seafood and fresh vegetables. We went there again the day after and had a likewise... More

Recently I enjoyed a delicious meal in this restaurant; the food alone would have impressed me, but what really prompted me to write this review was the fact that when I looked for the salmon dish that had caught my eye on the menu, Vito the proprietor (and also very pleasant waiter) ran to a local market to pick up...
