We ate at this restaurant twice on the recommendation of our hotel host and I must say the food was delicious. Fresh seafood served in typical simple Puglia style and not expensive.

Although we might have trusted our own instincts on the starters, and avoided the chickpea fritters with a cheese sauce, and the three seasonal veggies, the interesting and innovative pastas more than compensated. The spaghetti with an olive tepanade so dark it looked like squid ink pasta was inspired, even for someone who's not particularly fond of olives. Two large... More

A nice small restaurant on a small plaza. The service is extremely friendly. They have a printed menu, but if you ask they will explain all the dishes and also tell what they have to offer outside the menu. They also have a very good selection of wines. The night we ate there most of the other guests seemed to... More

This restaurant is hands down one of the best, if not the best, that I've eaten at, so far, and i am now 10 days into a 35 day trip. The food is creative, while still being true to the region, and the ingredients of each plate blend together beautifully! Service is warm, and welcoming, and the restaurant itself, is... More

Our meals there were by far the finest we experienced in Lecce. Beautifully prepared dishes, blending tradition with originality - really excellent cuisine. We also tasted the best local wines: a very fine and delicate Verdeca (white) and delicious reds. Attentive and professional service from friendly and courteous staff and management. A most pleasant place of distinction and class. Excellent... More

This was a restaurant recommended by our hotel, and we were not disappointed. It is really a 3 1/2 rating - my swordfish special was exceptional, and my wife's veal chop was really quite disappointing (very very tough). The veggies and starters were good, and service was also good.

We had dinner at this restaurant recently during a week's stay in Lecce and can honestly say that this was the worst meal that we had. It's hard to imagine that anyone in the kitchen has actually tasted the food that they are serving since all of our dishes were completely tasteless. On top of that, our main courses were... More
