Lovely place, very friendly service, local food, great wine, very good value for money. Exquisite detail and décor, ideal place to spend a typical evening in Salento surrounded by olive and orange trees.

Great location, in the countryside, in a olive trees field. Away from the buzz. Ideal location. Former castle.

If you're looking for a genuine taste of the Salento region of Puglia, you won't find better than Masseria Melcarne. The location itself is spectacular. A restaurant in the shadow of a medieval tower, surrounded by fields of beautiful olive trees. The first indication that you're somewhere dripping with authenticity is the clientele. All Italian. All locals. All very hungry.... More

We decided to bring in an antipasto and a primi and was very positively surprised both of the variety of different tastes and the amount of small dishes we were brought. We can really recommend paying a visit to this Masseria if you happen to be in the area.

It can be a real challenge to find an authentic Masseria experience now that so many new ventures have begun popping up in Puglia. Masseria Melcarne is the real deal and the fact that it is such a hard place to find is a testament to that authenticity. Only those who persevere will be rewarded, e come! (and how!) At... More

I'm very happy our friends took us at this place which is not easy to find. The masseria is simply majestic, the food was great, very difficult to choose as everything was delicious! The service is excellent! I'd definitely go back there!
