What could be better than a restaurant that just got a Michelin star, except one about to receive a star. This restaurant was just awarded a star so expectations were high. They fussed about the bread and olive oil. Nothing special. Very nice amuse bouches. Apps were creative and very good. But the fish was overcooked and that is inexcusable.... More

I tend to agree with the previous review (Nicatnight). It looks and feels the part - stylish with very attentive service and the food is certainly good but now 3 weeks later I am struggling to remember any particular dish.

Beautiful restaurant, very attentive service, somehow ate too much but nothing had a real wow factor. Bit fancy without the exceptional taste behind it

We followed our sat nav directions and ended up in the wrong place. In the middle of an industrial estate with no sign of a top-notch restaurant. A call to the restaurant answered by the man himself in perfect English and five minutes later we were there. However somehow we still seemed to be in the wrong place. A cavernous... More

In an unlikely setting near the industrial heart of Monopoli is Angelo Sabatelli's wonderful restaurant. A long drive up from the main road, lined with ancient olive trees, is the beautiful masseria. One highlight before we even got to the car park was the sight of the olive grove next door to the masseria completely carpeted in poppies. The Chef... More

Located in a rustic masseria near Monopoli the restaurant feels intimate with adequate space among tables. Service was warm and attentive and the somm was a pleasure to talk with and had great recommendations about local wines. The amuse bouche included ham and figs and an asian inspired sweet and sour fried octopus which was delicious. Nice selection of home... More

I would travel to this restaurant every time I am in Italy if I could. It is truly fine dining. One of the best meals I have ever had.

Lucky Monopoli to have Angelo Sabatelli. We join other reviewers in wondering why Michelin has neglected to give him one or two stars. We dined here in October and opted for the degustation menu ( 10 courses for 100 euros) so as to sample the breadth of the chef's skills. In three weeks of some stand out meals in Puglia... More
