I visited this bar several times during a four night break in Lecce, the wine sold is both of a high quality and a reasonable price. The guys serving are both efficient and friendly. Would recommend highly!

Fantastic place, great staff, wonderful food, particularly loved the guanciale. We were always made to feel welcome. One evening they had a great combo playing, Almoraima. A wonderful evening. Food is tapas, Italian style.

I've never eaten here, but have been a few times for a casual beer. I'm not Italian but have recently moved to Lecce. I visited one evening with a non-Italian friend. We ordered and sat at a table and drank our beer. When it came...More
