Passed this inconspicuous restaurant and popped in for late lunch without reservation not realising its good tating with TA. Excellent, deceptively large dining capacity with choice of inside or covered sunken verandah. Food excellent - had antipasti Bresaula, mixed salad, penatta Al Arabiata "forte" just for me, and delicious schiaforni noci e porcini to die for. Prices very reasonable for... More

We ate at this restaurant after a recommendation from others that had stayed in our trullo. The food definitely lived up to expectation but it was let down by one waiter who was extremely rude. We were about to order deserts but he simply took the menu and said "don't say anything" before leaving, which left us bemused. After a... More

Delicious and plentiful antipasti meant I couldn't eat another thing. I'd recommend just having the antipasti - there were meat ones, fish ones, vegetable ones. My son had a bit plate of Spaghetti Carbonara which was also delicious. Beautiful tables in the garden, and tables inside where the TV was. To be recommended.

The first time you visit this restaurant, as you walk along the path and down the stairs you wonder if it is actually open. Then suddenly you're in there, welcomed, shown to a seat and the fun begins. Really great local food - as in all Puglia - just done very simply. Plus they bring you loads of little extras... More

Visiting Alberobello can be a one and only experience due to its unique cone shaped houses but most of all it's due to it's delicious and unique dishes. All the products used are local and finely selected. Courtesy is also a must and the waiting time to get served is really limited.... Beautiful location, snuggled in a nest of olive... More

We enjoyed a family Sunday lunch here that was up there with our very best dining experiences in Italy after coming here for over 40 years. The antipasti for six seemed unending with one mouthwatering little (and not so little) dish after another. For under 13 euros a head it is just brilliant! We only had room for three shared... More

We returned to this hotel in our second trip to Puglia. First time was in 2013. The food and service were again excellent. Highly recommend the antipasto. So many dishes and so tasteful all of them. The pasta is also cooked to perfection.

Gli Ulivi does not have a fancy location, view, decor, etc... but oooooh does the food make up for it! The food is fresh, tasty and very well priced. The service is great, all the waiters speak english and know their menu, can explain the dishes etc. The place is very popular with locals and you can often see people... More

We ate here twice during our weeks break - 2 very different meals. Had the antipasta della casa the first time and what an amazing culinary experience that was. Amazing selection of platters with so many wonderful flavours and a huge variety to taste. It is so typically puglian and has to be sampled. Our next meal was more traditional... More

You will not be dissappointed if you eat at Gli Ulivi. Not only is the food very good the portions are huge. We were not able to finish our pasta courses. Spaghetti carbonara, and a pasta arrabiatta. Prices were extremely reasonable. Nothing fancy just good cooking. Service was friendly.
