We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here, it was far better than we had hoped and the atmosphere was brilliant, most of the diners seemed to be local. A great find in a lovely building.

Chose this restaurant as it was close to our trullo, looked nice and the menu looked good. Turned out to be a good choice. It is located in a trullo and is quite large but has a cozy feel as it is decorated nicely and is downstairs and feels sort of like being in a cave. The waiters and owner... More

Great atmosphere in an underground setting, good range of menu options, finely prepared dishes, and superb service. We ate at Casa Nova two nights and were not disappointed. Their meat and seafood offerings were superb. Wonderful antipasti, added appetizers on the house, added treats from the restaurant, including dark chocolate and paired wine as an after dinner treat. Everything was... More

We had found the restaurants in Alberobello to be generally indifferent, until Casa Nova. The food exquisite, the staff friendly and the setting interesting. It is patronized by non foreigners which always says to me a great place to eat. We were the only English speakers. Go, you will not be disappointed.

We arrived at about 7:30 and were told immediately that it would be 15 minutes to have wait service. A waiter arrived with some bread in the mean time. We ordered a relatively light meal this evening. My cavatelli con vongole 10Euro (cavetelli with clams) was very good and a good amount of small very tasty clams. Companion ordered pasta... More

I feel so strongly about about our nice experience here, that I rummaged through my luggage to find a receipt with their name. Simply, wonderful food and attentive service. I might caution you are in the provinces. Don't expect perfect English. Point at the menu if necessary. Secondly, take it slow. Two hour meals are the norm. Italians think some... More

The worst restaurant we encountered on our recent two-week visit to Italy. When we were ordering dinner, we asked for two bottles of beer (one each) but were only given one between us – we were told that we would get another when we finished the first one – bizarre! And it was our first drink of the day! The... More

Took 23 minutes between entering (at opening time) and getting a glass of wine. Bread was a bit hard and tasteless. Smells a bit funny in there. Full of English people! Decent pasta and that's it. Bruschetta was 2 watery cherry tomatoes on some hard toast, very distressing.

Thank Peter L
