I cannot speak highly enough. With a charming man and his wife cooking, this is what you travel to Italy for. Everything we ate was fresh and authentic Italian.

Everybody chose something different....our 14 year old son had a seafood stew which... More

You can find this restaurant on a narrow street in Monopoli Puglia. You have to go up some steps on the side of the restaurant and the tables are all on a spacious terrace. The waiter was efficient, friendly and he made fantastic suggestions. To start with delicious olives were served as the free appetisers. The bread was fresh with... More

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
