Don't read the bad reviews! Awesome place and food. Every plate they serve is 100% typical from Puglia, made with the best organic ingredients. So food is amazing, the relation price/quality/quantity is fare and the staff is really friendly. ( They speak English)

Everytime I visit Italy I have to go there. It's definitely the best place to go. They serve great local food in a very local place. Big recommendation for "la pasta"
