In this very atmospheric restaurant you will feel at home, due to its friendly staff and corny-yet-cute setting. Prices are reasonable, and one can choose from several local specialties. The food is nice, and the portions ample. Be sure to make a reservation, many people have read the excellent reviews on tripadvisor!

Lovely little restaurant with great food! The little old ladies cook the meal in front of you in their open kitchen. One of the best meals we've had so far traveling Puglia. Wait staff Service a bit slow though.

We booked on walking passed as the place opened, for later that night. The gentleman who took our details was friendly. The restaurant is underneath the old buildings of Ostuni, so has no windows and is like dining in a lovely grotto. Very nice. We had two different pastas. I had the baked pasta with eggplant and farro. It was... More

Ten of us (including children) enjoyed dinner at Casa San Giacomo in Ostuni. Charmingly located down a covered lane, the restaurant has a fabulous ambience. It feels like you are walking deep into the hillside. The stone vaulted ceilings and collection of small rooms are very typically Puglian. There is an open kitchen and the Nonna sits at a table...

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
