We went with a small party of 10 and were taken to a large room out the back passing by cosy trulli rooms. If we had been a couple we would have preferred a table in a trulli style room. The food was acceptable as we had a set menu for the group. The area we were eating did fill... More

We happened to go in because it was one of the few restaurants that were open early (we were cold and unprepared for the rain). We were worried it would be a tourist trap, but our worries were unfounded. The food was amazing! We ordered the vegetarian appetizer special and everything we had was so good. We also ordered a...

We stopped here for lunch as we walked among the trulli. There are several cozy dining areas nestled within this trulli-based restaurant where you can get a sense of the unique architecture from within. We sampled the cavetelli pomodoro & orichietta with pork ragu plus grilled pork sausages. All were flavorful & tasted delicious. Service was prompt & friendly.

We opted for the set menu which was an excellent choice as it had a great selection of local dishes which we all enjoyed. The house red was AMAZING. Kindly service along with some visits from the colourful chef.

The food here was absolutely terrible... It was bland and boring... I can make better food out of a microwave... and I also ordered the chocolate soufle it was burnt to a crisp and inedible... and drenched in disgusting sauce... It was one of the worst meals i've ever eaten.

It's a place located in the Trulli's area, the restaurant is quite nice and cosy, the chef itself was passing around how was everything. Very respectful service and great ambience. The food was amazing and the service just excellent.

Three years ago I went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the staff @ Borgo Egnazia. It was as amazing for our second visit as it was the first time. I ordered the nine plate (!) appetizer and my daughter asked for the pasta and beans. Talk about Italian Soul Food!!!! We met the chef and my daughter burst... More

The only place we could find open after 3 p.m., available for us to eat lunch. The service was great, the food was interesting (considering my choise of something local) and the wine was tasty.
