In this non-typical restaurant you have to choose the fish you want to eat and they will cook it for you. I was there with friends and everything was delicious and abundant.

Right in the historical center of Lecce, Pescheria Con Cottura is a fresh new way of eating fish: you see it, you choose it, you taste it! In our place, you choose what you want, both in weight and cooking, directly from the fish stand, or you can try our dishes of the day. Pescheria really cares about transparency and freshness of the fish, that's why we got a huge kitchen window and we specify on the labels on the stand all the information you need! Enjoy! #InFishWeTrust
