The location is fine .. just off the main drag.. the main room and side rooms are spacious and attractive but they really are targeting a tourist price / volume thing with the inevitable compromise.. If they tried for less quantity and looked for better quality then it would be better. A woman behind me had a question when her... More

I am amazed to find this restaurant so far down the list on Trip Advisor. Our party of 4 ate here twice during our week in Ostuni and couldn't fault it on either visit. On the first visit we ordered the antipasti for two and it was superb, it just kept coming and coming; it starts with cold dishes and... More

Well, we loved this place, very surprised to see a few bad reviews but everyone's tastes are different. I for one couldn't fault it. The chefs special starter was huge and just kept coming, the flavours were amazing, lovely family run restaurant and will be sure to visit again if in Ostuni again, well done all of you 👍

We we decided to have dinner at Casa San Giacomo attracted by its good reviews. We were happy with the food as it came in good size portions and presented very well. The place itself is very warm and designed in rural, traditional style. Only downside was service which we found a bit abrupt. The host at the fron door... More

We stumbled upon this charmer with no reservations. Luckily we ate earlier than they do, about 8:30, so got in on a Friday night. The service was charming, the food--fantastic. The traditional antipasti was recommended and did not disappoint. So many dishes, we could have stoppped there. The pasta dishes we took as a primi--no room for a segunde--were not... More

We looked at the restaurant from outside and fell for the atmosphere of the place. The lovely stone walls and the rustic open kitchen just calls for you to go in. But the rest is nightmare. We sat down in a small corner and the place was burning hot although it was quite cold outside. We ordered pasta with tomato... More

We had dinner at Casa San Giacomo several times during our five month stay in Ostuni. My favorite restaurant in Puglia... Every time the food was amazing! The house antipasto was out of this world, order it when you go and you won't be disappointed. The lamb chops and meats cooked right there in the open kitchen were amazing. The... More

El servicio es lentisimo, tres horas para cenar. Desaconsejable. Very slow service. We spend three hours to dinner. Not to be recommended.
