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

Great food , Great wine and a great atmosphere. We were even subjected to an operatic version of Happy Birthday by the next table.......Bellissimo.

Nothing to say about the food but the service... Ordered wine and got it delivered together with the dishes, actually got the dishes slightly before. Was given the deserts list but they showed up after 15 min to ask what I wanted and I was so annoyed that I asked for the bill. Also because the lady who was supposed... More

We asked our Brit ex-pat friend, now residing in Ostuni, to design our last evening before flying back to the US. He created a perfect experience within the historic zone. First: drinks at close-by Gipas 111 (see separate review). Next, we were directed to pass through an archway, up and down a few steps, to find with help from natives... More

As a large party of friends (22 of us) we were worried about getting a booking somewhere and concerned that our food would take too long to come. These anxieties were no concern at this restaurant even better was the food and wine was superb. The selection option they do as a starter was good but the rack of lamb... More

The menu doesn't have a huge choice - and that actually showed in the amazing quality of everything we ate. They bring out some traditional fried meatballs and taralli bread to start with - and these were some of the most delicious I ever had. We had a series of starters. The raw red scampi with caviar were absolutely delicious.... More

Good food, wonderful service, and welcoming atmosphere in a quiet street. A little hard to find but worth it!
