“Do not let the modest looks fool you”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

A wonderful experience: Tasty local food with modern twist. Excellent wines of good value to match the food. If you are interested, you will get to know everything you need about Puglian wines in a nutshell. Try the local beers as well. Very kind service - in English, too. We warmly recommend.

“Great food, great wine, well-informed owner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

I'll write this in English, as so far an English-language review seems to be missing. I had heard about the place through the Association (Infermento's owner and I are both nationaly-trained sommeliers). My only regret wasn't that I hadn't gone sooner. Three dinners in three nights, and each was excellent. Further, with Giuseppe's wine training, he really knows pugliese wine, especially those based on nero di Troy (I had to translate the name of the grape, as, oddily the name sets off the obscenity detector), the local red (he recommends those from elevated fields, which give better perfume). The kitchen didn't miss a note either, getting it just right, a mix of local ingredients, spun in a way that makes them seem new again.
That the owners are a husband and wife team is also especially nice. You feel welcome right away.
Highly recommend it.

“Thank you Guiseppe... More a wine bar...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2010

Thank you Guiseppe...

More a wine bar than a restaurant, and with the owner's help we had a lovely bottle of local red.

The food was good - portions a little small - but very tasty.

Overall, good value.
