We've been there for lunch, we took some pasta and some steaks. There were good, correct dishes but not impressive. The setting was nice and overall an ok experience but I wouldn't return.

Fantastic raw fish and shrimps. The rest was less impressive, but I should add that we did not have primi nor secondi. Excellent white wine.

The meal was tasty, the staff was nice but the service a bit slow in my opinion, also didn't bring the dishes combinations at the same time. The restaurant looks nice inside. We enjoyed.

buongiorno, ho letto la sua recensione e la trovo giustificata se le cose sono andate come da lei detto. però mi scusi se sottolineo una piccola grande assurdità da lei scritta.....ho 45 anni e bevo da sempre l'acqua del nostro acquedotto, le assicuro che le mie ultime analisi del sangue e delle urine, non presentano tracce di sostanze nocive che potrebbero essere disciolte nelle nostre acque. saluti cordiali.

Per carità non volevo offendere nessuno però l'acquedotto pugliese è notoriamente problematico ed io, nel dubbio, preferirei in un ristorante poter scegliere se usufruirne o no.
