4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were guided by TA and selected this little restaurant for lunch. It was a great ambiente and you could see how the chef prepared / cooked everything with lots of passion and amore. We enjoyed a antipasto di salami and then pasta of the day. It was excellent. Would recommand everybody to visit this. Maybe reservation is requested.

Truly excellent meal. The food was absolutely delicious and I wound up ordering dessert even though I was full. Based on how good everything was, I knew the dessert would be worth it and it really was. Service was great, and even though I was solo dining, I was entertained by watching the action in the open kitchen. They have... More

Our hotel recommended La Cantina and reserved for us. Even in June it is completely booked every night and for good reason. Only a few tables, great staff very good food. Plus fun evening as you can see your food being prepared by the chef. The varied antipasto are great and allow you to sample many Puglia specialties. Good value.

Two of us enjoyed a tasty lunch over a liter of house wine, yum! Get the antipasta starter. I think we were brought 14 different tastes, all great, including zucchini blossoms. We shared a pasta and second plate and both were good as well. Too full for any dessert. The service was very attentive and the chef was nice enough... More

This bustling little restaurant was impressive. There was an open kitchen and the chef cooked brilliantly and the single friendly waiter served everyone calmly with a smile. The food was delicious and we loved the whole evening. We would definitely return.

I'd read in advance of our trip that you would need to book and that certainly was the case! I booked via email prior to our visit and glad I did as the restaurant is tiny and the whole time we were there they were turning people away constantly. (note they shut on a Tuesday). The restaurant is very unassuming... More

We had a wonderful experience eating here. The open kitchen adds to the ambiance and the food cannot be beat. Highly recommend it if you are looking for an authentic experience.

This cute little restaurant really performs. We were part of a large group therefore we were lucky to try many dishes. Each appetizer and main course was outstanding. It's fun to watch the chef prepare the dishes in open kitchen. Having been to countless restaurants in Italy I can honestly say that this was one of the finest I have... More

This was one of four restaurants recommended by our hotel, and we got lucky getting a table as they were booked out after us. It's very unique in that the you can see your food being prepped and cooked from your seat. And with only 35 seats it's quite intimate. You could clearly tell that this is their passion and... More
