This restaurant has the best products in terms of quality and it is very diversified in terms of choices. There are 2 different locations right next to the other, one in a sort of open kitchen (very fun!) and the other, more chic is in a sort of grotta. Service is excellent, food is amazing. You MUST book, they are... More

The 'grotta' room was full so we were sent into the initially less attractive looking 'sala museo'. In the end were glad we ate there, seemed to have a more relaxed atmosphere and the solo waiter was both efficient and helpful. Food was very good quality and wine (were a tad expensive by the glass) was excellent . Coperti plus... More

After some confusion from the staff about which room we were in, we were seated in the cave room, which was lovely. The appetiser of eggplant and ricotta fried balls was a yummy way to start off while we reviewed the menu. We had a nice San Pietro Chardonnay which went well with the meal. We started with tempura battered... More

We were sent here by the owners of a restaurant that was closed on that day. We got one of the two remaining tables, and as soon as we sat down they were turning people away. Everything about this restaurant was perfect. Nothing more to add! except the rack of lamb was sublime.

I kept a wonderful memory of this old restaurant in Ostuni, where I used to dine more then 20 years ago when it was managed by the parents of the present owners. Nowadays unfortunately the "charme" is gone together with the authenticity of a place where I used to be able to find the perfect marriage of food and ambiance.... More

We ate here in the midst of a 37 degree afternoon. The cave like setting offered great relief from the heat and was beautiful. The service was friendly and the food outstanding. You must try the Burrata and salumi antipasti. It was phenomenal. Good value for money. We would return in a heart beat and highly recommend this osteria.

We came here on the recommendation of a local and it was a real treat. To start with the dining room is really atmospheric. It's all stone and rounded walls and wine stored on shelving all about and mis-matched plates and linen napkins. Really stylish. The food was delicious. The best focaccia I've had in the South of Italy so... More

We were welcomed into the restaurant and, although we had not booked, the staff quickly sorted us out a table, brought bread and water to the table, along with the menus and wine list. The antipasta course was presented beautifully and in an unusual way. You selected the main event, in my case, burrata and salami, this was then served... More
