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

We had a wonderful and delicious dinner under the trees at this lovely restaurant. We were helped to choose appetizers ( 5 kinds of fish with different presentations and taste, very good!) I had a homemade pasta with sea food, all very well presented and tasteful. Nice ambiance and very nice and helpful servants. Really recommend.

We split a seafood pasta that had broccoli rabe - one of the best we've had in Italy. The the pork with negroamaro sauce was great, too. Wonderful dinner. Even though the weather was on the cool side they were serving outside in a small piazza. I soon forgot my reservations about being too cold because the meal was so... More

This family-owned restaurant is a couple steps off the beaten path, but worth the effort to seek out and enjoy the best meal you're likely to have in Lecce. The space is small so you should reserve your table. The chef/owner turns out wonderful dishes of pasta and seafood, along with house-made breads and desserts. The whole family gets involved...

Very good dishes with plenty of Sicilian specialities. This is one of the few seafood restaurants in Lecce and they do it very well. Everything was spot on...

If you like cosy family run restaurants you will love this one.Situated on a quiet narrow side street away from the hustle and bustle. The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful even to the point of discussing some of the dishes on the menu. We ate there twice and the food was simply divine.The medalions of pork in... More

Because it was a little later in the year and outside of the tourist season, the pretty outdoor seating around the nearby courtyard tree was not there and we took a seat inside the fairly plain and uninspiring interior.  The waitress was friendly but spoke little English, although she knew enough to translate the main ingredients from the menu and...

This is a nice restaurant specializing in fresh fish, and seafood. Everything that we had was nicely done. The zucchini lasagna was wonderful, as was the pasta with clams and bortaga. Of particular note : the chestnut and mushroom mousse was amazing!
