Friendly family run restaurant - excellent value.

Had lunch here with friends who know the area, and they ALWAYS come back to this pleasant place - quite justifiably. It was fairly quiet on a very hot May lunchtime, so the owner chatted to us like old friends too! Food is plentiful, good quality, and excellent value for money. Located just a... read more

On a brief visit to Monopoli we came across this family run restaurant, we were made so welcome. Our lunch was beautiful and extremely good value. We were given some homemade lemoncello at the end of the meal which was the nicest we'd ever had (due , we were told to a secret ingredient!) and a plaque with the restaurant... More

How wonderful it is to experience a meal prepared with love. Four of us all ordered the daily special with a price of 25 euro ea. We had no idea what we were to expect. Appetizer course, included 5 antipasti. . .a plate of mussels (piled high), marinated zucchini (beautifully prepared), octopus salad (so fresh), fresh mozzarella (from Napoli), couscous... More

excellent fresh seafood cooked by the owner's wife in a cosy taverna in a sidestreet in monopoli, very good atmosphere and service. The king prawns in limoncello are the best I've ever had, it was all I could do to stop myself lickig the plate!

Booked this one morning for that evening and was recognised and name remembered as soon as we arrived. The owner could not have been more welcoming and spoke very good English. I particularly liked dining on the rooftop terrace. I had a wonderful plate of mixed seafood - very large portion, and my husband had a very tender steak. We... More

We found this restaurant tucked in a side street near the harbour by asking a local man passing by for a recommendation. He was quite right it is excellent food and not expensive. The fresh fish we had, simply grilled or fried, could not be bettered and the salad was plentiful and delicious served with a smile and general bonhomie.... More

We were directed to Vito's taverna by a man repairing a chair in the street. This is a small family run taverna serving excellent seafood and pasta. No pretensions just good honest people serving wonderful fresh ingredients at very reasonable prices. At the end of the meal we were offered the customary glass of Limoncello on the house. I hate...

My family and I had a wonderful lunch here prepared in the typical Pugliese manner. This a family restaurant and by the time that we left, we felt like family. I do not think that you can go wrong choosing any dish. We all had something different and we all left very happy. I cannot say enough about this place... More
