OK, imagine Stan and Ollie running a restaurant which offers decent food, and you'll have a vague idea of the experience we lived few weeks ago! OK, we get in pretty early as our son was kind of hungry. The place apparently is known for their garden, but the weather was bad, so the only choice was to eat inside.... More

Waited more than 1h and received only one dish for entree. Waited 45' for a simple plate of pasta ordered for my daughter. The service and attention of the staff was terrible. I got up, paid for my part and left. It's a place to avoid.

A modern approach of tratidional dishes. Try the antipasto misti, nice! The 'tonno' is cooked as desired, medium rare and... Delicious! Good wines on the list. Quite place with nice background music, in the garden, in the middle of the city. The service is a bit 'unprofessional' ... Like in many places in Puglia. Price/Quality: a high score!

Food are tasteless! Service is horrible! Nobody remember and cares about your needs. After spending 2 hours and 140 euro for 3 people, went to the pizzeria to eat something. I would rate it with zero instead one!

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.
