Spectacular lunch!

4 brothers, all educated in different parts of gastronomy, joined together to make up for a spectacular lunch! One of us had a 4 course menu with meat while the other enjoyed a 5 course meal with fish. The 4 course variety had more pure and classical tastes. Dishes the 4 brothers were used to... read more

Everything in this restaurant was perfect: As soon as we arrived we were nicely entertained by a chef's welcoming dish and, of course, fresh bread and taralli which were simply delicious. We both ordered a first course, main and dessert. We started with tortello di burrata and orecchiette di grano arso, both mouthwatering, fresh and delicate. As a main we... More

We visit Puglia a couple of times a year and always try to eat here. Personally, it's my favourite restaurant in the area - we've been coming to Puglia for nearly 10 years. Original takes on typical Pugliese dishes, a fantastic selection of reasonably priced local wines, and disgracefully low prices for food of this standard. Domenico, out front, speaks... More

After a little struggle to find a place for dinner in Trani old town, we finally booked a table following the excellent reviews on trip advisor, and that may be the best idea we had in our 2-week stay in Puglia. The place is discreetly located close to a high end retail street in Trani, the interior pretty new and... More

We discovered this resto last year and were so impressed that we extended our holiday this year to visit it again. The degustation menu was again outstanding. Very nice and attentive owners. We will certainly go back whenever we have the chance. Thanks guys for the very very nice dishes!

How refreshing to walk into the air conditioned, modern styled and crisp restaurant from the Trani heat and to receive such a genuine and warm welcome despite being 20 minutes late for our reservation. The food was imaginatively cooked, beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Each course was a masterpiece and the flavours of the individual ingredients came through exquisitely. The... More

I have been a couple of times already and reviewd this place once in the past but could not miss a second review for this outstanding experience that these professional brothers deliver each time. I am originally from Puglia and live in London now for many years and I'm used to great presentations and new inspirations in amazing places. What... More

Beautifully cooked, beautifully presented modern/haute-cuisine takes on classic Pugliese food. Run by three brothers, this is a formidable restaurant offering incredibly professional and, more importantly, passionate service. What's more, for food and wine of this quality, the prices are unbelievable (at least for a Londoner!). The restaurant is a bit too brightly lit, but everything else was truly and honestly... More

Having read previous reviews and checked out the website I was really excited about dining at Quintessenza and I was certainly not disappointed. My girlfriend and I enjoyed three delicious courses of some of the finest produce of Puglia. Every course was executed superbly both in cooking and presentation and the service was very friendly. I'd been emailing Domenico to... More

Thanks David, it was a pleasure to read the feelings of your dinner; I really wanted the experience to be a mix of emotions and sensations, but above all our spontaneity and genuineness, sincerity on the human side.
