If it is not too crowded it is a great place to eat and enjoy. The antipasti are excellent, traditional with a modernized edge

I was wary of the mixed reviews of this place , but a random lunch here proved that good local cuisine is alive and well in Puglia . No menu and waitress spoke only Italian , but she brought a selection that was balanced and so tasty . Sat in the pleasant garden , service perfect . Good value .... More

Entering this restaurant felt like entering somebody's home, and maybe it actually was! But sitting in that patio, in the shade, surrounded with flowers and nice smells was this little break my family and I needed. We had delicious food from these amazing antipasti, to dessert, as well as pasta and open wood oven meat. The waitress/owner was great and... More

It took 3 couples to be standing at the door (7 mins?) waiting before the main waitress started looking at our direction to serve us to our reserved table. At the table, we were left hanging dry and thirsty for a good 35 minutes before one girl came to ask for our order. The starters were nothing you would go... More

We entered the restaurant, waited about 3 minutes before we could get any attention from anyone, and we were finally seated. We then waited exactly 30 minutes before anyone came to ask us what we wanted to eat or drink, meaning we were waiting 30 minutes with no idea of the menu and no water and no wine. The food... More

Very simple unassuming but delicious place - generous portions and friendly service. The antipasti was enormous. Many locals recommended it as a place where they eat frequently

Great surprise to find such a wonderful small restaurant with such innovative and classic Italian food! The only drawback is the restaurant is so bright you feel like you need sunglasses to enjoy the evening! Please install a dimmer on your lights and add some candlelight for Atmosphere! This would make this place 5 stars!

After a visit in early October, we returned just before Christmas, 2015. No disappointment. The winter menu was amazing. Try their anti pasti - it is to die for. Everything locally sourced and in season. It is one of the best places we have eaten in Italy !!!

My husband and I just walked out of this place after a very frustrating experience. After spending three weeks in Pugla and finding the food excellent, and the restaurants welcoming, this place came as a shock. For an appetizer we had the chicory (which we've had in other restaurants and enjoyed) which was watery, tough, and seemingly without any spices... More

Hard to find - though on the main road the name is tiny so look for green shutters and the name Trattoria - Small, committed and passionate about their local produce this place was fully booked (we saw three couples turned away on a wet October evening) and was more than half full of locals. The nine course antipasti was... More
