Was perfect... We arrived there by pure chance, for lunch on a Tuesday. The food was fresh and very good. The prices are reasonable for the quality and service.

We went there for lunch and had an appetizer tasting menu. The service was inconsistent, food acceptable but not memorable. You can do much better for the price they are charging.

We had lunch there, after a walk in a earm day, and we ordered two different kind of pastas. We were in awe bite after bite. Cooked al dente, full of taste and flavour but light and it pleased not only out stomach but also out eyes. Also, appetizers were very good. The service was young and fresh, we really... More

A limited, but good, menu. There were several local specialty dishes which we enjoyed, some for the first time. Difficult to judge ambience, efficiency etc fairly as there was only one other couple eating at the same time as us

Loved it. We ate at another restaurant and this could very well be the best ristorante in Martina Franca based on that experience (a good one mind you) and the others' menus. I have rated some other restaurants as 'Excellent' but this one is truly deserving of this rating. It's a perfect 5 dot 'Excellent'. We even went back the... More

What a hidden gem! This place is located in the winding streets of the centro historico of Martina Franca and were not sure if it was open for lunch since it looked like no one was inside. After wandering inside with no idea what we were about to experience, we were welcomed with 2 glasses of Prosecco and 2 amuse... More

Well, this is a very good place to eat if you visit Puglia, it offers a great experience, a fusion between traditional pugliese cuisine and a contemporary approach. Exceptional wines as well.

We just tripped over this little place whilst searching for a lunch spot away from the more touristy offerings around the square. It turned into the best dining experience of our two weeks in Italy. Service was impeccable. Practically no English from the young waiter, but we got by and managed to order our food and get him to provide... More

In a lovely setting in a quiet side street. We enjoyed the food and it was interestingly presented, maybe tried a little too hard to appear fine dining but maybe that's just me - I just like good food and don't need the fancy dressing up. Prices reasonable.

Do not miss this place. Wonderful setting on a side street in a pedestrian section of Martina Franca's historical center. Italian nouvelle cuisine. Extraordinary.
