We had a lovely dinner at this restaurant. It was a set menu with 7+ ?(I lost count) dishes. Everything was fresh with plenty of interesting tastes and textures. At 25 euro per person including wine it was amazing value for fabulous food. Highly recommend.

Gustavo has a set menu that they told us they change every 10 days or so. The food is really unique (we had coffee orecchiette for example) and they were very accommodating in preparing vegetarian options for one of my friends. I thought the pacing of the portions was great as well. We paid 25 euros each - quite affordable... More

My friends and I went to Gustavo after it was recommended to us by some locals. Although we arrived pretty late (they were probably closing) Carmela, the owner, invited us to sit at a table and enjoy the experience. At only €25 we ate so much and all was accompanied by delicious Primitivo IGT. Each dish was utterly delightful and... More

Gustavo feels somehow unique from beginning to end. During the cooler months you enter a room that looks like it should be in a Wim Wenders film, strangely beautiful. The food here is exceptional and there is no menu to choose from, you are brought what the kitchen has composed for that evening. The antipasti soar to ever more inventive... More

We are here on Saturday night. Our table was booked for 8.00pm but I would suggest arriving a little later as we were among the first to arrive. We have been travelling round Puglia and this easily was the best meal we have had. The food is exceptional and at 25 euros incredible. You are presented with 8-10 small courses... More

Hands down one of the best meals I've ever had in Puglia. Fresh local ingredients put together in such interesting ways and a truly wonderful staff. Be prepared to EAT and eat WELL when you go to Gustavo. Can't wait to return!

What a fabulous restaurant. A very stylish setting, and plate after plate of flavourful fare which we really enjoyed. It was a very reasonable meal given the quality of the ingredients and the care put into every course.

Great dinner at Gustavo. The place is very charming, typical Salento's atmosphere. There is a fixed menu that changes everyday, making sure food is always fresh. It was excellent quality and service. I highly recommend it.

For 25 euros you receive a full course dinner and wine. There is a set menue and no a la carte. Food is creative and you will find dishes you did not know existed. We will be back!

Another year, another outstanding experience! Gustavo remains one of the best culinary experience in Puglia, a rare feat as unfortunately here restaurants come and go and very rarely manage to maintain quality over time. But each year Carmela and her team consistently deliver truly excellent and creative food, usually locally sourced from the many agro-entrepreneurs which grace the region. The... More
