“Mussels!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

We went to this restaurant twice during our stay in Peschici and the mussels are UNBELIEVABLE! They knock socks off Belgium mussels - the flavour is just incredible. The restaurant also has a good wine list and the owners son is very friendly as 'front of house'. A great restaurant.

“A good taste of Puglia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

There's nothing fancy about this restaurant, which is located down some steps near the top of the old town in Peschici. We had orriecceto pasto (the local shape, like an ear) with mixed seafood and found it to be very good. Prepared simply, the quality of the ingredients is evident and delicious. I followed with fried calamaro (the singular), which is hard to do well, but which they did very well. You'll like this place.

“Quality food and quaint location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

This restaurant offers great food and service at a very reasonable price considering the quality of the dining experience. The restaurant offers wonderful past and seafood dishes. Be sure to make a reservation during the high season because there are a limited number of tables. We were luck enough to arrive without a reservation and were given a great table outside. I recommend you select a table outside and enjoy the location.

“The best seafood in Peschici”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

After eating at La Taverna you will regret trying other places and not going back. Yesterday we had dinner there for the first time and before paying the bill we booked our next dinner. The excellent quality of the tasteful food accompanied with laughter and kindness offered by the great staff are definitely worth the €35 spent per person. We enjoyed the antipasto del pirata consisting in a great variety of small dishes with different kinds of fish....mmmmm I loved the tuna with balsamic vinegar with that twist of lemon that made it superlicious and that fab prawns with crispy bacon. The local wine was great and it perfectly matched every dish. The location was really unique and being a couple we were seated at "the most romantic table" ...the whole place is romantic!!! Again the food was really good but what made this place really special was the professionalism of the staff. Can't wait to go back and try the lobster. Don't forget to book at least a couple of days in advance!!

“Somewhat disappointing!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

My wife and I went to "La Taverna" based on the review from Trip Advisor. The only thing we really liked was the coziness of the restaurant. The food was just average. My first two choices from the menu were unavailable - I had to settle for linguine with small clams. OK but with some sand. The service was spotty, at best. I don't expect to get all the attention because of my good looks (I have none) but it seems that the waiter payed us much less attention than to other customers. We even had to remind him to bring us the wine we had ordered because he apparently had forgotten. A not so memorable experience.
