Passing through Otranto we stopped here by chance for a quick lunch. Very busy inside their covered outdoor area but we were made to feel welcome as soon as we entered, on a rather wet day. Throughout, the service was excellent and delivered in a very friendly way. We just had two seafood risottos, very good with a good range... More

Bustling fish restaurant on the front outside the old town. Family run and great atmosphere - good fresh fish. You may well need to wait for a table.

This is popular with locals as well as tourists. The renowned Nonna Tina is either in the kitchen overseeing the cooking or chatting to guests. The produce is fresh and local with delicious fish, pasta and risotto choices. Great atmosphere but must book ahead or you will have a long wait for a table.

Fantastic well cooked fish and the Fantasia antipasti dish is very special- comprises nine mini dishes served on rectangular platters. Great for 2 to share. Main courses are generous and the service is attentive but not in any way overbearing. We were a tad disappointed with the grilled vegetables- rather dry and uninspiring but you cant beat the fish!

We have just eaten at this lovely unpretentious restaurant. The friendly attentive service complemented the great food. Always a good sign when a restaurant is full of locals. Book beforehand for Saturday evenings....or be prepared to wait outside...which many people were prepared to do.

The real Italy! Having been fed terrible food over on the Amalfi in restaurant after restaurant, we were so happy to be served delicious food from people who were proud of what they serve you and wanted to make you happy with their food! We dined here in late June 2013, the staff were lovely and the food was fantastic,... More

I would highly recommend this place on the seaside at Otranto. Fish was excellent and well prepared. The owner was very involved with her customers and really made us feel welcome.

Dal baffo was recommended by our hotel and we were not disappointed. The service was very good and the food delicious. The "nonna"/proprietor chatted to us and took a great pride in her cooking. The min course and dessert were both of high standard. The decor was pleasant and unpretentious. Good value.
