We found this restaurant via Tripadvisor. nIce, cosy Osteria with good Italian food, a lot of fish on the menu, it was a good choice!

Absolutely brilliant! This family-run business with a handful of tables hidden in one of Avetrana's picturesque alleys is truly a gem: authentic food, super-friendly staff and great atmosphere overall. Tuna tartare and caramelised calamari were delicious, and their home-made prickly pear liqueur is ridiculously good. Great value for money.

Tucked away in a quiet alley is this wonderful restaurant. We went with our two little girls, and from the minute we got there, we graciously welcomed by the co-owner (I'm so sad that I can't recall his name). Food was delicious, inventive, and plentiful. Desserts were spectacular.

Everything from the incredibly wonderful appetizers (the potato cheese prosciutto lasagna. ..... oh my my!!) to the pasta with fagioli and cozze to the maiolino with a primativo reduction to the grilled pesce spada..... Every bite!!! Yum yum yum.

Thank FG1Nyc

Il ristorante Osteria sud e terre lontane è situato in una stretta via pedonale del centro storico di Avetrana. La struttura è stata ricavata da vecchie abitazioni private con volte a stella e in tufo, di cui è ricca la zona. La cuoca e proprietaria (Rosanna Massari)cucina come se a mangiare fosse la sua famiglia, non fermandosi ai piatti tradizionali di cui è ricco tutto il salento, ma arricchendolo con sapori e colori della cucina di tutto il bacino del mediterraneo: Spesso infatti, si diletta in piatti greci, tunisini, spagnoli, portoghesi.....etc. Buona parte degli ortaggi...dell'olio, provengono dai suoi orti e uliveti baciati dal sole e dal meraviglioso mare del salento. Il suo menu' non è mai lo stesso e cambia giornalmente; dettato dalla sua ispirazione e dalle stagioni. In'oltre si fregia di poter garantire il pernottamento in una struttura antica e appena ristrutturata con molto gusto ( "kalinicta" )
