The garden setting is rustic and perfect -- and they seem to be open a little later than the rest of Otranto. Pasta was basic but everyone loved the fish antipasti, actually the fish everything. I think there were some nice cheese as well. House wine. All simple and lovely. Go for lunch.

The outdoor in the garden is extremely romantic and beautiful. That is all Vico Lopez has to offer. The food was uninspiring and lacking in flavor. When my husband asked if the steak was served with something else on the plate, the waiter said that nothing came with it. So he ordered the steak with a side salad, which was... More

Service is horrible! Personel is not professional and careless We were 4 friends and we waited for lot of time (more than a hour) at the end they served us separately so we couldn't eat together. When we complained about this to the owner instead of excusing she just said that "It's like this". There were a lot for other... More

We visited Vico Lopez at the end of June. The first time we went there was a misunderstanding about the cost of the fresh fish of the day and we were shocked at the price. We reported this back to our hotel, who had recommended the restaurant to us. The hotel then went on to phone the restaurant about our... More

The location is a trap. The fish was terrible, not fresh at all, the wine average and expensive. We took the "Antipasto Vico Lopez" all the fish was not fresh and tasteless, then the fish we took later was fresh but absolutely expensive for that type of fish. Very expensive. Avoid this place.

The special antipasto was out of this world, it just kept coming more, eight platters with squid, octopus, mussels, fish - all cooked to perfection. And so much, we could have stopped there. Luckily we had not ordered any pasta, we went straight on to the secondi. Grilled octopus, and a fillet of fish were also very good. Unfortunately not... More

We went there on a Friday evening, the garden itself is nice but the atmosphere was dull. We tried to book 2 restaurants in the afternoon but they were fully booked. We managed to get a table a Vico Lopez. The restaurant was surprisingly empty when we got there (9 pm) and stayed pretty much the same the whole time.... More

Nice location, good service but the food was not tasty. We ordered a Risotto with gamberetti and crema de zucchini. It was a really small portion, had not enough salt, we could't taste any wine out of the risotto and also other spicies were missing.
