We went there for dinner during a week of work in Fasano and really enjoyed it. Nice food - pasta with seafood and fried fish - in a really unique decoration. We did not had to wait extremely long for our food, even though it was busy.

That says all I guess. The entrance seating is for tourists. The real nice seats are in the back of the place. The fresh seafood was excellent. Staff was arrogant.

We visit Chichibio every time we come to Polignano for the past 5 years. It is simply fantastic if you love fresh and local seafood. We have never been dissapointed. It a stylish place, so a nice chance to dress up a little.

Waiter was nervous, or in a really bad mood. The food was underwhelming, we felt rushed and still hungry. "Tourist trap" maybe going too far but nor by much...

We had two hand made pasta dishes. Both were very good. The wine the waiter suggested a selvarosso which was very good. We also had an appetizer and shrimp entree. The restaurant was very busy. The waiters were very professional and friendly. If we found this place earlier, we would have eaten here more.

Went here because it was close to the hotel......and it was a great find. Fabulous ambience and good service. I expect it could be pricey - but I just had the pasta with prawns, zucchini and lemon which was ample, absolutely delicious and excellent value.

There were a few highlights to our meal, (the flavor of my primi piatti of risotto ai porcini comes to mind, even if it was a touch under cooked and sacrificed creaminess for an overall grittiness) however, we were treated insultingly as if we were in the owner's and server's way the moment we walked through this nicely stated osteria's...

Arrived here by accident since it was a really rainy day and wanted a place to stay for a while and eat. The menu was in Italian and with English translations for every item. Since I'm not quite fond of sea food, I saw on the menu "fried fish mix" so I ordered it along with some fried potatoes. When... More

We wound up in the restaurant by chance, so we did not know much about it. The waiters were really polite and spoke a decent amount of English. They brought bread and some really, really good spicy traditional biscuits with olives. However, if you like fish, but you are not a fan of other sea food, pay attention to what... More
