It hardly seems worth reviewing somewhere everyone gives five stars to, but it's so good one feels obliged to. Very stylish if a bit too bright, very attentive welcome and service, but more than anything very accomplished and well balanced food. We had the five course tasting menu which was fish and seafood based, with a delicious dessert. Every course... More

On a 2 week tour of Puglia in September I was fortunate to eat one evening in Quintessenza A modern design with great service without being over-the-top. The food uses traditional Puglian ingredients with a very individual twist. Flavours are truly amazing. The wine list is expertly chosen. Surely deserving of a Michelin Star,easily up to this standard. Prices for... More

Can only agree with the fine reviews that have been recently posted. Everything was so well done, both food and wines that paired so well with the courses. Our waiter was one of the brothers and he and his brother, the chef put out possibly the best meal we have ever had. Won't tell you what we paid but just... More

Justifiably numero uno, we had a delightful evening of great food and wine served with knowledge and warmth by the attentive staff. This is contemporary fine dining at very very reasonable prices. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough - if you are in Trani don't miss it and do try the Gallipoli shrimps, delicious creamy and melt in your mouth...... More

The brothers who run this modern very stylish restaurant are passionate about Puglian food and wines. We ate innovative, fabulous tasting dishes accompanied by wines from indigenous Puglia grapes made by equally passionate winemakers. We loved the friendly informative service that accompanied every course and such great value for Michelin star quality.

From the service, to the ambiance to the tasting menu to the wine....PERFECT. Everything. The service was delightful and attentive and they described every dish. We tried the tasting menu and it was the best I've had in a long time(and yes I live in San Francisco). I would be fat but happy if I lived near this restaurant. I... More

We had a fantastic meal here. The staff were attentive and the food very good. Definitely not traditional Italian fare but if you are up to splashing out for something different then this is the place to do it.

Certainly not a place affordable for everyone or everyday, yet I remember of a friend that told me quite anyone, once in a while, should give it a try... Accuracy a must, to the lightest particulars of dishes. One of those days you'll remember for long. Is it compulsory to find out anything I didn't like? Music: I'd rather make... More
