About
Osteria Monacelle: a place that is home to the art of cooking Our Osteria is in the heart of Ostuni, close to the pre-classical civilization museum. Tradition, culture and passion for good food are mixed into our original dishes, rich of antique flavors, memories and history. We only cook local food, using original ingredients from the Apulian agriculture and cuisine, because we strongly believe in the quality and in the authenticity of our beautiful region.

We went there for lunch on a Sunday, the place was empty. We find it weird considering the reviews on here but we decided to give it a try. The food was average, nothing special. I wouldn’t go the second time.
