Restaurant has an interior court yard, hence the name. Food was not bad, but nothing special either. Service was friendly yet slightly on the slow side.

We were.happy to discover tbat all products (or at least most of them i... More

The 'Secret Garden' restaurant in Gallipoli actually has a garden in the back with a few tables set under lemon trees. The dining room inside is also very pleasant and has a/c. This restaurant is one that seeks original recipes that are either traditional Salento dishes or modern-day interpretations, with a good mix of seafood and mainland specialties. The menu... More

My partner and I ate here on Sunday night and had a very good experience. The outdoor area was lovely. The food was good quality and reasonably priced. My partner had the ravioli, which was delicious. I usually don't like fish dishes, but after I tasted the ravioli, I wished I had ordered it as well. I had the spaghetti... More

I found this restaurant purely by chance. The menu outside advertised lots of veggie dishes. My soya lasagne was nice but needed lots of vegetables added. There were none. Lasagna can have many vegetables added!!! The staff were very helpful.

We visited here in winter, the off-season. So there were few clients (one other table the first night and just us the second night). The local shrimp were fresh and wonderful, as were our other dishes. The hams and sausages and cheeses were all beautifully chosen. The waiter (owner?) gave great advice for the wine. The second night, I tried... More

I just wish we had found this restaurant earlier. Everything was excellent and we were well advised in our choices (one of us vegetarian, the other not). The antipasti were particularly delicious and memorable made with lots of local produce.

The wine was very good and cheap and the staff were helpful,and friendly but disappointingly the food took a long time to come even though they were... More
