My husband and I had the pleasure of visiting Ostuni on our annual holiday this year and enjoyed a number of wonderful meals during our stay. We managed to work our way through a lot of the highly recommended restaurants on Trip Advisor and for us Sax is in a class of its own. We knew the moment we were seated that we were in for a wonderful evening – the place was buzzing and full of happy Italian families – you get the impression from the clientele that this is where the locals eat (always a very good sign).The food was absolutely delicious and extremely reasonably priced – I’d recommend trying the pizza (one of the best I’ve ever had).
Above even the standard of the food, though, was the standard of the experience: the staff and owner were so friendly and, whilst they spoke English perfectly, they took the time to help us along with our embarrassing attempts at Italian and gave us the sort of local knowledge on the city that you’ll never be able to find in a travel guide book. We felt truly valued as customers from the moment we arrived to the moment we left and felt sad that we hadn’t found the restaurant earlier in the week.
After saying our goodbyes we promised ourselves a trip back to Ostuni (including a few visits to Sax) and headed off for a few drinks in town before heading home. A couple of merry hours later we bumped into the owner of the restaurant closing up a shop he owns in the centre and he insisted on opening back up so we could choose a little gift to take home with us!!
I really hope everyone who goes to Sax takes the time to write about their experience and helps push them to the top of this list where they belong – we wish them all the luck for the future with their beautiful restaurant and hope to be back soon! x x
P.S. Don’t be put off if the outside tables are full at the front of the restaurants - there is a beautiful outdoor seating area at the back of the restaurant which we were taken to on our visit as we wanted to eat outside.
