“Sadly tourist fodder”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We were a party of 8 including 2 children. We chose this restaurant for lunch as it was in a quiet side street in the old town. We had the seafood antipasti - (no choice). It was rather mediocre and didn't appear to be freshly prepared. The main portions were small. My mixed fried fish was mainly squid and a few prawns. Our overall impression was slight disappointment in that they had not made any effort with the food.

“Good quality, tiny portions!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

The place is cute, the seafood fresh, but the portion size is so small for th price it is offensive. When the waiter asked us what we thought, we told him this and he responded they use the smallest amount allowed- example the frittura only has to be 200 grams, so tht is what the use. Because the portions are so small you have to get at least 2 courses per person and they only sell wine by the glass, so expect your bill to be absolut minimum 70 eur for two people. That being Said, the shrip in the frittura were wonderful, though we would not go back.

“Simple place but good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2011

In a side street in the old town the trattoria is very simple in style but the service is efficient and friendly. The waiter didn't speak any English but was keen to please and we managed to get the information we needed and he tried his best.

The antipasti misto was mostly fish (but why wouldn't you expect that in Gallipoli?) but there was lots of tasty morsels and variety. The orrechiette with seafood was very tasty and really top knotch. The mains were lovely, simple fresh fish dishes, full of flavour and plentiful.
