We had a nice meal although nearly empty restaurant (8 p.m). Good service, very good carpaccio of dorado. Main course a little bit simple but OK. Very good wines on fair prices

Very Cousy restaurant in the city center. Warm, very good service and food quality is really top! The fish I have seen in this restaurant is not average, I have never seen so many different specialities from Mediterranean Sea all in once.. everything fresh to satisfy all taste. The open kitchen is the cherry on the cake, you can feel... More

This small resto is located in the heart of the Brindisi downtown, at the ground flore of an old buiding. Also quite easy to be reached on foot passing past the near cathedral. The owner has few tables so you should better call in advance to check for availability. I did so. The owner is kind and gentle: we kicked... More

When the second table (a couple) arrived served was still perfect. Then a 3rd table arrived, only 4 people but usual customers close to the owner, and service was not... More

The waiter was really present for me (ok, I was alone, as it was early the evening). He could suggest me fresh pasta with fresh fish,... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant last Sunday for lunch and were very disappointed. The restaurant was out of almost everything, including the entree they suggested for me as a substitute for my first choice, which was "finished", as was the appetizer I ordered. This third choice, also recommended by the waiter, was just okay. He steered my... More

At first I thought something was wrong as the place was empty. But Brindisians dine late and when they started showing up, the place comes alive. The fish is super fresh and tasty and the wine list is excellent. The place is well designed, clean yet informal. The menu is merely a suggestion. And the waiter will advise your dish... More
