We had been recommended this place, so stopped for lunch at this seaside restaurant called La Banchina. I got all excited when I saw Bacalau on the menu, so ordered that - but unfortunately it was just a very tiny portion of deliciousness - so then had to order a seafood salad to top it up! My husband had mussels... More

We were taken here by friends who know the city well. There location is perfect with tables overlooking the port filled with fishing boats and yachts. The service was precise and very polite (and patient with our broken Italian). Our hosts started us off with a seafood antipasti, which consisted of never-ending dishes of the local seafood prepared in multiple... More

I was looking for a good quality restaurant to entertain some friends. After recommendation from my Hotel we arrived here. The setting is splendid the service very good but the food was a disappointment. Even allowing for perhaps our wrong choices from the menu the food was poorly presented, lacked flavour and was incredibly overpriced. The extra cost for potato... More

A lovely restaurant right on the harbour with lots of sheltered outside tables. A good wine list and fresh fish by the kilo. We had lobster pasta, salads and mixed fried fish with a delicate local fiano followed by lemon sorbet. We skipped antipasti as it involved lots of raw fish which we don't like; the waiter seemed shocked that... More

Our local friend booked this restaurant for our dinner as there were only a few choices on Monday. Like most restaurants here at the shore the focus is on seafood. We had mussels cooked in light sauce, prawn linguini, and a sole-like fish cooked in a similar sauce as the linguine. Not a bad choice if one has to have... More

The 2 mixed seafood starters at 15 euro each ( we were told we had to order 2 despite asking for one) was a series of 5 plates ,the best was the fried octopus pieces and prawns , the worst was the deep fried ricotta cheese and the dullest...

We dropped into this place, one of multiple restaurants on the waterfront in Trani, on the recommendation of the owner of one of two places listed in the Lonely Planet Guide, which was closed that night. Our first impression was not positive cheap looking menus in cheap plastic sleeves. However we were wrong! We ordered what sounded rather unimpressive –... More

We found this place walking through Trani on a cold and windy day in late December. Everything seemed shut and saw this Osteria open. Upon walking in saw a section with tanks of fresh seafood and decided to eat. We ordered a starter of raw seafood of sea urchins,oysters, local silver prawns, hairy mussels and some clams and my god... More
