One of our dinners in Acaya

Very nice location in a typical local medieval Acaya house. Food is good and well cooked. Not too many options to choose from but quality of the dishes we tried was high and service was good. Marco

Good food, but service almost non-existent. We felt unwelcome and uncomfortable. The only pleasant person was the friendly older cook. We wanted another course but no service, even though only 6 other diners, so eventually collected menus myself. The sorbet (commercially produced) I had for dessert tasted like the nasty lemon powder one might have bought as a small child... More

My wife and I have eaten here many times and we have never failed to be impressed. This is a lovely restaurant with genuine authentic local food, cooked to perfection. Well worth a visit.

The food is in the real Salento Style. Good environment: few tables in a real 'ortale' (garden-like). I've been there some times in different years and the quality level is always the same. Very good and abundant salento antipasto (1 for 2), then delicious fave and cicoria. Good the agnello with patate and pezzettini di cavallo. The parmigiana is not... More

Spent 4 days just outside the village of Acaya so was able to eat at the 3 restaurants located in the town. Not much difference experienced eating at all three. We were welcomed warmly by the owner. Pleasant courtyard entrance way. Owner is a bit of an artist/poet. Restaurant displays work by the owner. Food was well prepared. Service was... More
