“Atmospheric friendly restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

In an alley just behind the Piazza della Independenza (the main square) this excellent little restaurant is easily overlooked. That is a real pity, for the food is excellent, the service efficient and friendly and the atmosphere very distinctive - it seems to be in a cave. Best of all perhaps, there was no deafening background music. We ate there happily on two successive nights - probably the best meals of the trip.

“Lovely fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

I started with the mussels and John had the seafood salad. Both were really good in this lovely restaurant set inside another Ostuni cave. Staff are very friendly and efficient. For mains I had the grilled Sea Bass and John had Cuttlefish and Octopus. Both really good and obviously fresh. We also had some grilled veg to go with the fish, We shared a piece of orange/choc tart which was very nice. We had a bottle of Primitivo at 15 Euros - total bill was 68 Euros.

We enjoyed our evening so came back a week later and I had a deep fired assortment including polpette, zucchini flowers with John again having the seafood salad. John then had spaghetti vongole and I had the sea bass again since it was so nice. We had a bottle of Primitivo and again shared a piece of fig pie. It was all very good.

Worth finding your way to this lovely restaurant.

“great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

We went here with a large group of friends and had a fantastic time! The staff were very helpful and attentive, the wine was REALLY good and the food didn’t disappoint either. Wouldn’t recommend for a romantic night but for a few friends and a lighthearted atmosphere, this is not to be missed in sleepy Ostuni.

“Really good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We liked this place and went back again. It is a more up market place for Ostuni, but not desperately so. Food was VERY good. Service excellent, and setting too, being partially an Ostunian (?) cave, as with many places.

“Dinner in a cave!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

This was recommended by Masseria Tolla and we were shown to a table at the back, in the cave part of this restaurant which made the experience quite special. We had a lovely meal, the service was good, and the bill very reasonable.
