Nice location on a small square with a view on the Chiesa di Sant’Anna. They are specialized in all kinds of bruschetta. Also they have some other small dishes and plates with Puglian specialities to share. We asked for an advice on the vino rosso. And they recommend a vino with a mix Negroamaro and Primitivo which tasted indeed very... More

This is our third visit to this lovely restaurant over three trips to Lecce. We have had excellent meals each time. Last night we sat outside and watched the passegiatta. I enjoyed the lasagna and my wife had a meat and cheese plate. Excellent service by Julia and Simon. Try this restaurant.

Our last meal before heading back to Rome and really glad we found this place. Staff were great and the owner / manager spoke great English. I recommend the Witch's Chopping Board - with the best selection of meats I have had in Italy ever. Great wine selection and funky little place. 5 star all the way.

This restaurant is a gem in the hearth of Lecce. I ended up here casually while wandering in the old town. The atmosphere is cozy and welcoming. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, explaining us everything about the food and the wines. They also helped us to match wine and dishes, quire rare these days. The food was excellent,...

It is rather a wine bar than a restaurant, that's why it is even more disappointing to get 2 different types of wine glasses and you have to wait ages for your drinks, although very few customers around. Me and my girlfriend ordered a bottle of Brunello - and after a while, another waitress checked if we really ordered the... More

In this restaurant we had the feeling that the staff was unhappy when we entered and did everything they could to strenghten the feeling they would love to see us leave asap. Food was ok, but in such an ambiance you don't want to be. Shame on u Cantina!

La Cantina is not a traditional restaurant. It specialises in dishes of assorted meats and cheeses. Excellent choice of wines and beers. We were unsure what to order so our host prepared platters for us all to try their best dishes. The food was local and beautifully prepared. An interesting introduction to food from this area.

Thank Dennis K
