This restaurant was quite bad, it was very expensive and was low quality, the food was definitely not fresh and we were a bit ill the day after, service was also very poor and finally it was very disappointing to see that we were 2 couples in this restaurant and the 3 other ones around were full ... We probably... More

Restaurant at the first busy square in the old town, fortunately most tourists are trapped at the other restaurants, since this one is in a far corner... Staff was friendly and helpful, the food was delicious. Only diner, no lunch. If you enjoy a quiet diner, go elsewhere, at night the city becomes so crowded and the staff has to... More

Nothing was too much trouble and a menu that was a little different to the norm. The food is very fresh and the menu reassuringly small, they clearly focus on doing a few dishes very well. (Gordon Ramsay style) If you like fresh fish or/and pasta served with a smile, you can't go wrong.

The restaurant is centrally located in old Gallipoli, in a little square extremely crowded and pretty loud. Not recommended for a very romantic dinner, because of the people continuously walking between the tables. We (2 pax) had, for a total of 80€: - mixed appetizer of local food: good - local fresh pasta with seafood: very good - local spaghetti... More

The five of us dined there once, did not like the food at all - the waitor did not show us the fish before grilling it like other restaurants do, the pork cutlet was breaded and tasteless. Do not recommend it.

Loved the chocolate pasta (not sweet) and mussels. I had the breaded monkfish for my main, and my husband had a breaded pork chop (he had enough seafood this trip). Both were excellent! The only regret is that we could not get potatoes with our main courses! They said the kitchen was too busy and did not offer fries or... More

We ate in a lot of restaurants in town, including La Puritate and Il Bastione and this was our favorite (and the cheapest). You sit in the main square but it doesn't have the views of the sea. I had an amazing pasta made with chocolate (it didn't really taste like the sugary version) that had mussels, clams, and rucula.... More
