Room was large with high ceiling , like eating in a barn. Service was off hand , the menu very standard for tourists, food was OK but nothing special. Would recommend looking around for alternatives which offer better value and a more interesting menu.

We were recommended by a local and had great food and service. Had the burrata, spaghetti with mussels and bombette a la Alborobello. Not impressed with the lemon tart which was a lemon cake

The place is situated on the main street at the entrance of the old city, near the parking area. It is suited for big groups because is big enough. The food is average, still the welcome "crostone di pane con pomodoro" was very good.

It's a nice restaurant, with plenty of space and good bathrooms. And most importantly the past we had was very good, in particular my orecchiette with cime di rapa were excellent.

The sea bass, rabbit, sausages (was a large portion) , and rolled pork stuffed with garlic & cheese (was a small portion) were good, as were the roasted potatoes. Would order again. The mimosa cake was moist and not too sweet.
