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!

We spotted this place while walking round the city in the morning , so we returned for lunch. We had a lovely lunch in a superb setting. The service was very good. Very pleasant staff, the waitress was very attentive. Our food was excellent and the wine too. Would definitely return.

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

We discovered this restaurant 11 years ago and promptly named it "The best restaurant in the world". Since then, it has come and gone in quality and visiting a couple of years ago was a big disappointment. However, this time they redeemed themselves, I'm delighted to say. The setting is always gorgeous, the service was quick and friendly and the... More

After a wander around the picturesque Ostuni we found this little restaurant down some steps off one of the many tiny streets - we were drawn in by the leafy shade offering some relief from the heat of the day and were not disappointed! We shared a platter of mixed local food - really good. So much better than what... More

This lovely restaurant offers delicious and unique dishes. The atmosphere is quite special and our table outdoors on the small wandering patio was just perfect for our family lunch.

This restaurant is wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. My husband said the steak was among the best he had ever tasted! It is beautifully situated on a series of terraces surrounded by flowers and plants- we were under an old pepper tree- though the steps down to the terraces are quite steep. It is not an extensive...

Brilliant anti-pasta, superb meat and fish main courses made this place so good that we returned twice. They were able to handle food intolerance with ease and the place itself is one of the most attractive places in the old town being on about six different levels, outside.
