We had dinner at Monacelle during our Puglia trip. If you want the perfect Puglian home cooked dishes this is place to go. I had the lamb stew with artichoke (the house specialty ) and my wife the rabbit. Both dishes were really succulent. As it has sort of an open kitchen you can see the mama preparing her dishes....

A very nice and home feeling restaurant run by a family. The mother and grand mother are the cooks whilst the son takes care of outside. Truly a good meal in this stunning little town

Ate hear whilst in Ostuni a week ago - this restaurant is tucked away in the historic centre and very popular. Food was good but not spectacular, service was excellent apart from when we asked for the bill - took nearly half an hour to get it to us! From our experience the other reviews are OTT.

I read a lot of positive comments from non Italian customers. Actually either they do not know the Italian cuisine or I went to the wrong restaurant. I'm a fan of the cuisine of Puglia (one of the best in Italy) but what my wife and I got at this restaurant was highly disappointing. It's worth to mention that the... More

We found this cute place by chance. Although it's relatively small, they work quite fast. We didn't have to wait too long to get our food. Their dishes are delicious. Would definitely go back. The staff is very nice and friendly.

This tiny whole in the wall restaurant was recommended to us by our B&B owners and it was definitely worth going. We had an appetizer and a "primi" pasta dish and certainly didn't need any further food as the portions were pretty big. There is a big window so that you can see into the kitchen which I think is...

We had an amazing family lunch here. Make sure to try the amazing antipasti, for a table with 6 people we got 6 platsed with different things on, great taste and things we never got anywhere else. Great to sit so close to the kitchen and see the staff working. The staff is very nice and friendly.

The anti pasta platter was just ok - the rabbit was tasty as was the fish but the portions were lacking . Wine was expensive for what it was - atmosphere and service was good

A very good dining experience, with home made wine and I was very impressed that the chef who cooked the food actually came out from the kitchen to check that everything was alright with our meal. I would have given an extra star if it had been a little more reasonably priced. All in all a very good meal and... More
