Best meal in Italy!

Just had lunch at caffe Cavour- absolutely fantastic. Everything made fresh to order - we shared some appetizers and couldn't decide which one was best- surely go for the deconstructed artichoke. The combinations of foods and flavors for each and every dish was unusual and over the top.

Everything about this experience was unbelievable, from the setting (dining in a beautiful cave) to the service, the wine and of course the food. The gnocchi, the lamb and the prawns were cooked to perfection - this was by far the best eating experience we have had in Ostuni, and we have eaten in a lot of places! I am... More

We had dinner in this restaurant. We choose it by chance and enjoyed it very much! The place is romantic and quite exceptional as we were in a cave. We took some fresh pasta (we cannot remember the name), the tuna, the entrecôte. The food was very good. This is so far our best food experience of our trip. The... More

Both good size portions and good flavours. Main course I had the fresh fish, which was sea bream, I was told it would... More

We recently had dinner in this lovely restaurant. it is built in a very old cave in the rock in the centre of the town and has a very good atmosphere with great service and attention to detail. The starters and main courses were delicious and complimented with a very good bottle of local wine. An ideal place for a... More

We were lured to this place by the prospect of getting unbelievable food in an usual setting. Well, we found neither. For a start, on our way to this restaurant we passed through really unique and cool places, full of people, emanating mouth-watering fumes and occupying breathtaking vistas. So, we broke rule #1 in selecting the restaurant "Never Go to... More

Had a great meal here. The setting is amazing. The restaurant is almost in town centre, yet when inside you realise it was once a cave used for olive oil making. Wonderful traditional good local food. The staff were very friendly with brilliant sense of humour and good English. They were an entertainment on their own.

The food was really good, tasty and fresh. Great location, nice ambiance and the staff were very friendly and helpful explaining me & ensuring we selected best appetisers and pasta dishes to share. The ravioli as well as the orecchiette anchovie pasta were a taste sensation. The truffle artichoke as well as salmon were also great, not one bad dish... More

Great food in a subterranean cave. Enjoy the balmy evening with a drink somewhere else before or after (or both), but come here for the excellent food and very knowledgeable staff.

Came here for dinner on a Friday and was seated almost immediately even without having reservations. The dining room is in a cavern like atmosphere. Very well decorated and romantically lit. Waiters and staff are cordial. Service was rather slow. For starters we had a plate of warm seafood, nicely presented and taste good. Also had cime di rape that... More
