Went to lunch because this taverna was cited in our guidebook. Really liked the setting. Antipasti di verdure were very tasty, copious, and we really enjoyed them. But the mains were disappointing for us, too heavy and salty, most items on the menu did not seem adapted for a hot season.

We visited on the recommendation of the villa manager for our son's 18th birthday.The setting was lovely,food excellent and good service.We had the antipasti and were pretty full after that.Washed done with a bottle of their prosecco which was delicious-much better than many I have had in Italy and the UK.

This is a nice place to eat. The food is good, authentic with some old recipes used. It is interesting, flavorful, and presented well. The ambiance is great, on multiple levels, outside and inside, with trellises and trees surrounding you while you eat. The service is mostly excellent and professional. We were 5 people, and I sampled much of the... More

Nice looking place but we found the food heavy and frankly speaking more fitting for a ski resort than a summer coast... A bit pricy too!

Hands down this has to be the best restaurant in Ostuni. The outdoor setting is truly Italian and if that's not your bag then the indoor restaurant is also has a beautifully eclectic Italian feel. We returned here after a visit 7 years ago to find it exactly as we left it. The antipasti della casa is a must have... More

The outdoor setting of this restaurant, with its flowers and whitewashed walls is beautiful. If you go, definitely order the antipasto, as it is a wide variety of local tastes presented on separate plates. This was our favorite part of the meal,and if we returned, we'd just order the antipasto and wine for a perfect evening. Buon appetito!

Beautiful setting in a three terraced garden. We shared the antipasto platter which had some very interesting dishes. My main course was veal stew which had a hint of Indian flavours. The staff all spoke English which we thank them for and the service was excellent. The meal including three courses and a nice bottle of wine was eighty euros.... More
