We wanted a place where the locals go...found it here! Friendly, good service, fresh cooked meals! My husband had the grilled octopus...and apparently it was so good, he hugged the waiter! There is a beautiful outside seating area and little play area for kids. Highly recommend!

After suffering "tourist" food... this was a joy. If you like food cooked with love and a restaurant run with total professionalism and joy... this is for you.

Brilliant Puglian food, lots of choice, and fantastic staff made this a great evening. They even do takeaway! We ate inside once and had a pizza takeaway once. Pizzas are lovely and fresh, and the pasta is amazing! Please try this place if you don't want your "tourist menu"!!!

Thank goodness for this place. after most of the other tourist trap restaurants in Alberobello this is a welcome oasis in a desert of mediocrity. Stumbled on this restaurant partly by chance and partly by recollection of a previous good revue and were extremely pleasantly surprised. this place serves good local cuisine and is very reasonably priced. We ate here... More

My family and I booked a table here one evening whilst on holiday and it was superb! So much so, we had 3 courses, each as amazing as the next. The children were well looked after and welcomed, which is wonderful. If you're visiting this region, you must book a table! You will not be disappointed.

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
