We came here several years ago on recommendation from a friend. The place was smaller (nothing outside in front of the Church) and it was really good. Simple dishes full of flavour. When I read the reviews here, some commented that the place was not so good anymore. We still went back with friends and did not get disappointed. Whilst... More

Do you want to eat local food from Salento book a table here! Powerful and tasty antipasti which consists of many different dishes. Excellent wine that goes well with the food.

This is a 3rd time that I've sat at the dining table of this restaurant. Always a pleasure! Food is local and very tasty. Service very friendly. Plus++there were folks playing Pizzica music that made it so charming feels like a Cine-Citta scene!!

My husband and I had great hopes for this little restaurant. It came highly recommended as a classic Puglianese Trattoria. And frankly they do serve good cucina povera fare. No complaints there. But the price we were charged is anything but povera. We were charged €28 for a simple (but ample) antipasto and €14 each for a basic tomato pasta.... More

We arrived after we booked two days in advance hoping to have a place on the little piazza. They send us to a table near an electric box with no lighting! Then they move us to another table in a courtyard where the table was VERY sticky and with ANTS on it!! In all of this they did not care... More

We went twice to this restaurant. The food is very simple traditional food from the region. The appetizer were very tasty and of several different types. The pasta which we asked to get with meat (brasato) was excellent and also the meat dishes were very good. It is really a restaurant for those who appreciate the simple local food nothing... More

Only one waiter who knows how to take an order. The Appetizer that just keeps coming is very rustic, basic and all tastes pretty much the same. Yes its cheap, but they promise you a table outside, we have a dog and 2 year old with us ...then arrive and there is no outdoor until July/August. Inside is hot and... More

We wandered in at 7PM without reservations, and they managed to squeeze two of us in for an early dinner. And thank god it was early, because the place was packed! We had the antipasti, the octopus and the orrechiette with cime di rapa. We also had two quarter litres of wine (red, and rosé). To my mind, one antipasti... More
