We ate here twice during our recent stay in Puglia; both exceptionally good, but totally different experiences. Mid-week, when it was quieter, we ate in the beautiful, high-ceilinged, elegant restaurant and at the weekend, it was 'fuori' ...outside in the garden, with many more guests all having a wonderful time. The food is fresh, inventive, and all beautifully local. Service... More

After a week in Cisternino we had tried most of the restaurants and went back to Sant'Anna for our last night - a very good decision. The title of this review is meant to reflect the quiet efficiency of the place, the friendly service and the very good food

This is my 2nd review, previous was last year. I have to reconfirm that the food is stunning, the antipasti for two starter of around seven dishes was fantastic, the following courses were excellant, and as everyone mentions the sweets are a must have. Staff are there when you need them, not constantly needing to know how the food is,... More

Nice food prepared with a lot of care and fantasy. Nice atmosphere in a open garden in summer, a modern or old style ambience during winter.

We had read the article in the Times written by Theo Randall and decided to go with his recommendation to try this Osteria. The outside doesn't look too inviting but the inside is very nice. The food was incredible. We shared the house speciality antipasti which was a wonderful mixture of fish and meat dishes. We then had the shin... More

We'd booked table for 4 for a birthday lunch at this hidden gem. The birthday girl and partner were nearly three hours late, having gone to the wrong city. Were the staff fazed? Not at all. Served us their wonderful starters and bottle of prosecco, before at last we were all able to enjoy ourselves together - and a birthday... More

Facing Cisternino station (on the small Valle d'Itria line, right at the foot of the town, not the remote one on the main Bari - Brindisi line) the restaurant is set in a series of beautiful vaulted rooms and has a large terrace with pergola for summer meals. It offers a mix of tipycal apulian food with superb local antipasti... More

Excellent restaurant by the local station of Cisternino. Superb vaulted ceilings, 3 dining rooms, terrace. The antipasti are abundant, the méat excellent. For chocolaté lovers, don't miss the dome. The personnel is charming.

A delicious lunch and friendly, helpful service. We had to be self-disciplined not to have all the courses. Don't be put off by the external apearance!

Although fairly unprepossessing from the outside this restaurant has a nice ambience inside. It's quite large inside with vaulted ceilings and quite a few tables, although it was relatively quiet when we visited. The staff were generally attentive (although it wouldn't have hurt for the one who seated us to crack a smile sometimes...?). The food was excellent overall; the... More

Mollemente adagiata alle pendici della cittadina di Cisternino,rinomata località turistica dell` entroterra pugliese,immersa nel verde degli ulivi secolari della Valle d`Itria,sorge l`Osteria Sant`Anna,una antica azienda vinicola completamente ristrutturata che conserva,intatta,l`originaria struttura in pietra.Si può dire che,l`Osteria sia una casa con l`anima,voluta e curata dalla raffinata signora Franca che ha desiderato lasciare in evidenza le imponenti volte a stella,i muri segnati dal lavoro svolto negli anni,i grandi "capasoni" in terracotta contenenti -un tempo- il mosto appena pigiato ed ancora le ricercate atmosfere disegnate con mobili d`epoca,vecchie foto narranti antiche emozioni e,sparsi ovunque,candele e lumi sempre pronti ad illuminare una tavola predisposta all` accoglienza di una clientela esigente e ricercata.
