Recently in monopoli came across this resturant on a very hot day, when Vito the owner invited us in to his air conditioned resturant. After looking at the menu Chris wanted pasta with prawns, not on the menu but not a problem. When it arrived it was fantastic the plate was over flowing with prawns and the best pasta we... More

Visited Monopoli today for the first time with my family, and whilst wandering around looking for a place to eat we came across this lovely little place. We were greeted with genuine friendliness from the owner Vito and shown to a table inside a lovely old rustic building. We went for lunch and found all our dishes to be tasty... More

La Vecchia Taverna This was the best find in Monopoli without a doubt. A delightful, family run restaurant that serves rustic, traditional Puglian food which is a treat for the taste buds. If you only visit one restaurant in Monopoli then I would recommend this one. We went back 3 evenings in a 5 day stay and did not regret... More

Our last night in Monopoli, I picked this restaurant because of the reviews and the outdoor terrace. Four of us shared an appetizer that was good (shrimp wrapped in katifi). My sister had a seasonal grilled fish, but my brother, mother and I chose pasta (carbonara and ravioli). The fish was cooked to perfection and was fileted/deboned right at our... More

My partner and I have travelled to Monopoli for a holiday and were told the food was amazing... unfortunately it took a few restaurants (before we came across La Vecchia Taverna) to convince us. Now we have tried real Italian food! So tasty and fresh, VERY good Italian food!! Staff were also very friendly and super helpful. Thankyou :) We... More

Welcomed by the staff. The Tuna stake was recommended and rightly so, it was cooked to perfection. My wife had a pasta dish which was well cooked too. Pasta dishes are often too small (in mine opinion) but not this one. Seal it out, you won't be disappointed. Location could be better, But hey, who's scoring this when the food... More

Brilliant food. The caprese starter was excellent. Luckily we shared as it was enormous. Had sausage pasta with cream for main course. Couldn't manage a dessert as the starter and main course portions were on the very generous side. A reasonably priced dinner. The staff were very attentive with nothing too much bother. All in all a good place to... More

Our late night dinner here was a highlight of our trip to Puglia. We had the octopus salad for starter, pasta with seafood, fried seafood, and desserts. If you write it down like this it sounds very simple and even boring: seafood, seafood, seafood. But the quality and the value is very very good. Already the starter was surprising and... More

We always return to La Vecchia Taverna every time we are in Monopoli, and we always go more than once when in town! It is our favorite place in Monopoli. Vito and Antonietta, the owners/hosts/chefs, are truly wonderful people - you are sure to make lifelong friends while enjoying a wonderful meal.
