Nice food, good variety, simple cooking: grilled! Not so expensive, some starters, steak, grilled veggies, potatos and 1 bier = 24 euros.

An unusual set up in that you choose from a butchers counter which of the freshly prepared meats you want to try. The selection is huge and varied. Something for every meat eaters tastes. A short walk from the harbour. Seating is outside and the square itself a nice setting with several other restaurants and bars close by. We enjoyed... More

The prime quality of the beef is remarkable. They offer some marinated stics of beef a bit spicy but exellent. Do not be afraid to try the local speciality named "Turchinietto" a delicious combination of veal liver,bacon and beef rolled in a very special shape. The list of wines is very complete, several "Primitivos" and "Negroamaros" will satisfy the most... More

A meat restaurant where diners chose their cut of meat from a large choice displayed. It is then cooked as requested. It made a change from pasta, spaghetti and pizza meals. The service was rapid and attentive.

Great butcher's counter with all cuts explained in written Italian and English. Despite language barriers staff were attentive and helpful. Ideal for fussy eaters who would rather just eat meat without carbs or veg although veg and salad were offered. Artisan beers washed down the meats and price is definitely in the customers hands. You pay by weight and get... More

We found the restaurant very reasonably priced. You choose your meat from a counter and then it is cooked and brought to your table. There's a selection of meats......pork (barbecue or paprika ) on skewers, sausages, chicken, steak and other meats, rolled and flavoured. It's served with a choice of potatoes, salad or chips. Overall it was tasty, if a... More

an excellent meat restaurant, perfect for relaxed dinners with friends. The grilled meats (of all kinds!) sausages (different ones) and vegetables will make you want to come back here every day and try yet another dish! Everything is simply excellent! I tried most of the things and have not a single negative comment. Oh yes, to make the beef even... More

You choose the fresh meat cut and they grill it for you, and it's really delicious. The "bombette" are absolutely wonderful!

Escosazio is a pretty cool steakhouse concept:you get a table number, get in line to the Butcher kiosk, pick your meat and choose the way you want it cooked and finally sit at your table were you will be served. The meat quality is very high, location is nice and prices are fair. The only down part was that the... More

I love this steakhouse in Piazza Mercato, in the heart of historic Brindisi. Order your desired steak from the display as you enter - or involtini (rolled, filled meat parcels) or salsiccia (tasty sausages in different styles & flavours ) - and then sit back with a 1/4 or 1/2 litre of delicious local Negroamaro or Primitivo (red wines) and...
