We were recommended this restaurant from a local. The place doesn't look very inviting from outside, but don't let this fool you from missing one of the greatest food experiences in Bari! We let the waiter decide for us and as he promised, the food...More

The menu depends almost completely on the day's catch. My raw antipasto was so fresh that my husband jokingly said that while he liked it he didn't want to have to follow it around the plate! We later made a detour in our trip to...More

Great atmosphere with large choice of fresh seafood prepared in a traditional way at super price. Very welcoming staff who know their local guest while being friendly for tourists also. Would certainly go again!

We paid 2 visits to Osteria Al Gambero within a week, and fair to say the first was an all round better experience. The service can be a bit erratic at times, with sometimes the basics like bread forgotten until you ask. Also the waiters...More

Unfortunately it is not what we excepted, not that it was just frequented by tourists, but some of the comments are either paid by the patrons to give good reviews. Arriving there the place was practically empty, our starter, which was two portions of raw...More

The worst experience whilst dining in Bari during our 4 day stay. The whole idea of dining is to eat with your partner simultaneously. However this was not to be. This headless waiter kept running round tables dumping bread baskets and taking orders. The local...More

My husband had a wonderful fish dish and I had a pretty bland pasta. When you eat so well in Glasgow it's difficult to find the same quality when abroad... Seriously!

"A safe place to eat and where water bubbles on a single plate." Is a place where tradition and marry baresità taste in the sign of a fish gastronomy fruit of a long experience of fifty years. Al Gambero since 1968 is capable of giving a dive into the flavors of the Mare Nostrum and bring to the table the best that you could want from a kitchen capable of telling the dishes symbol of the true tradition of Bari. In front of the Port of Bari, where the seagulls, the smell of the sea and the waves are the backdrop to a culinary association that has its roots in the intuition of Domenico De Girolamo. True pioneer of food seafood in that of Bari, now with Vito directs Al Gambero, with the same care and attention of a time. Always rated by the exaltation of the flavors and aromas of the Adriatic.
