Other reviews of this place praise (1) the copious house starter and (2) the family friendly character.

Been here several times during the same week. Excellent food and service. Several dishes deserve to be mentioned: antipasti to die for (from pure' with herbs to prosciutto e mozzarella), homemade pasta made based on fresh produce available from local farmers, great quality meat. Antonio charms clients and contributes to a great atmosphere! A must in Taranto!

Just had one of the best meal in a very trendy , friendly and professionally run restaurant in Taranto. The food is of excellent quality and cooked to perfection in a homemade fashion.
