Our local tour guide recommended this place so we knew it would be good. The space is quite small and we were seated near the kitchen so you have the feel of being in someone's dining room and they're preparing the food just for you....More

Definitely worth a visit to experience an authentic local meal with very reasonable prices. The spaghettoni with octopus was the hands down favourite, with a huge pork shank not far behind. Menu wise the only negative was the abundance of artichokes, they were practically in...More

Kind Alana P We are happy to know that you enjoyed our restaurant, We're sorry that you don't like artichokes! They are vegetables of the season, but you will definitely enjoy other foods. Our wine is a "SALENTO IGP", this justifies the price. We wait...More

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.
