We were the first customers. The waiter wellcomed us and told US about the choices we had. We went for the fish menu. The house whitewine was very good and refreshing. 8 euro for a nice bottle of frizzante is very fair. Our starters: shrimpsalad, musklers and filled musklers served with a nice bruchetta. Primo: seafoodpasta. A Big portion. Segundo:... More

We had been travelling around Italy for more than 6 weeks and experienced some fantastic meals. We went to L'Operetta because it had excellent reviews. We were sadly disappointed. The waiter was dismissive of our attempts to make conversation - apparently because our Italian was not good enough. We were served whatever the staff decided we should have despite our... More

In a very lovely setting, hidden away in a small square in Rodi Garganico, with a lovely view, it deserves to be discovered.

We were welcomed by Gianni the owner who with great enthusiasm explained the 18 euro fish menu. The meal started with tomato bruschetta,and local olives, then antipasto with the freshest seafood. Mussels, calamaretti, vongole, etc,... More

Two options of menu, one with carne (meat) and the other with pesce (fish). In my view go for fish. Excellent house wine and friendly staff. My personal downturn is the decision whether I should go uphill to the piazza or down to the harbour for my mandatory ice cream.
