“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Lovely small restaurant with discreet service and excellent food. We had a very generous dish of sea bream on citrus fruits, which was cooked to perfection. I could have eaten it twice! A pear and chocolate cake on zabaglione to finish was beautifully presented and very tasty. It is a little pricier than some other places but the ingredients are clearly very fresh and high quality. Be sure to book as it is only little and gets full up even midweek. Just a shame there is no outdoor seating, as it is on a picture-perfect little piazza!

“One of Ostuni's best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Walk up Via Cattedrale and round the cathedral to find this small (book to be safe) but excellent place directly behind. Waiters had limited English but did not resent our rudimentary Italian, thankfully.The English translation on the menu is often confusing but persevere and you are rewarded with superb food.Very friendly and efficient staff and a classy interior set up the evening which began with good bread.
We had scallops (very good) followed by black and white pasta stuffed with monkfish and prawns, with clams.This was one of the best dishes of our stay-sensational in presentation and delicious to eat. A sea bream dish was also fresh and vibrant.The Florentine steak was perfectly cooked pink (no choice!)and local pork was juicy and flavourful (also served slightly pink, quite properly).
At around 120 euros for two people (3 courses and bottle of wine and water) it is comparatively pricey but good value for the quality of ingredients and cooking. There is a 4 course menu at 30 euros which looked very interesting.
Would return just for the pasta (the translation misses off the word 'pasta' so we thought we were getting stuffed monkfish with prawns and didn't recognise it when served.The waiter looked very hurt!).
Lovely place.

“A real treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

This little restaurant just near the cathedral (as the name suggests) is a real gem, the staff are friendly and the food is wonderful. Great for a romantic evening or a dinner with friends - just make sure to book in advance to make sure you don't miss out

“Disapointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We went for dinner there trusting the michelin guide which describes it as a bib gourmet. The place is indeed very elegant but staff are extremely unfriendly and food is very disappointing with a bad value for price!
