The tables and chairs are at the side of a road (which is hardly used) about 50 metres from the kitchen. The menu was all in Italian and only one waitress spoke any English. However, the food was excellent (seafood risotto as a starter and seared tuna as a main) and the wine was good.The service was OK and the... More

Oh dear, the service in this restaurant was warm and friendly but the food was a real disappointment. Maybe the chef was off or having an off night but the meal just did not live up to even the most basic standards you can expect to find in Puglia. The pasta dishes lacked flavour and there was no sense of... More

We were recommended via our hotel else we would never have found this place and we were very lucky to get a table (so book in advance) It is outside a church and you sit under huge olive trees. Only a couple of dozen tables. As with a lot of place very limited English (which we love) but great fun... More

We ate outside, in the square, and had a wonderful meal here. I ordered a pasta with tomatoes and mussels for about €8, and thought it might be small - but I couldn't have been more wrong. I was given a huge plate with lots of seafood in a beautiful sauce. The mussels were pretty much the best I've had... More

I went there in a fresh night with my boyfriend. The place was really attractive and we were really hungry. We ordered one appetizer for two and was enough, then two first courses and two second courses. We are used to eat a lot (ehehe) but the dishes were really copious, and it has been hard to eat everything! The... More

The nice terasse under the trees, isolated from touristic square provided a cute and romantic atmosphere! Yet our starters were not bad but average (grilled vegetables with no seasoning and almost raw, frozen and mashy octopus) although primi and secondi were much better. Very nice service however, with limoncelo offered.

We had such a lovely dinner here! The ambiance is so beautiful outside on the street under this beautiful tree. The service is super pro, and the food delicious. I finally had a great sea urchin pasta and delicious raw shrimps. My companion had raw squid to start and a beautiful mix fish grill. We had a beautiful bottle of... More

The guide of our bike tour (veloservice) recommended this restaurant and we had dinner here twice. Both times it was really nice. Good food, nice staff and a very good location (on a little square in the historic centre under trees). We started with the special aperitivo of the restaurant wich was really nice. We had antipasti, pasta, grilled fish,... More

We had lunch there, nice location and nice staff serving us. However the food was very average and the bill too expensive. I would not recommend, there are way better options in Lecce

I guess we were a bit unlucky wih the evening - sitting outside is probably very nice there, when we had dinner there it was a bit cold and windy. But the staff was very nice and brought my girfriend a jacket. When it came to ordering, the waitress was a bit too patronising for our taste, recommending a bit... More
