Fabulous food. One of the best places in Monopoli.

Owner is very hospitable and gives many extras such as bruschetta and finished with a glass of limoncello and a lovely small gift

We were walking through the old city to find a restaurant that we had seen earlier when we came upon La Vecchia. There was the "special of the day" on a chaulk board for 25 euros each. Looked inviting so I we went. Thank goodness we didn't find what we were originally looking for. This family run restaurant offered so... More

Great fixed prix (25 Euro) for a large assortment of appetizers/pasta and fish. We've ate here the last few times in Monopoli and are satisfied by the quality and quantity of their offerings. The owner is ever present to ensure things go well. If you like seafood and an assortment, this place is worth visiting.

Have visited this restaurant several times over the last two summers. The Staff are lovely and so friendly and helpful and the location is great, you almost feel you are dining in with the locals, food is also excellent and very good value. Had the best ever Tiramasu here ! Love this place. See you next summer.

stumbled across this place whilst wandering around monopoli at lunchtime back in June, great little place popular with locals. Guy couldn't do enough for us, really friendly setting us up a solo table outside, plying us with limoncello and buying me a rose!!! Food was great, regional, rustic and plenty of it. wouldn't hesitate to recommend

Had lunch here with friends who know the area, and they ALWAYS come back to this pleasant place - quite justifiably. It was fairly quiet on a very hot May lunchtime, so the owner chatted to us like old friends too! Food is plentiful, good quality, and excellent value for money. Located just a stone's throw from the very pretty... More

On a brief visit to Monopoli we came across this family run restaurant, we were made so welcome. Our lunch was beautiful and extremely good value. We were given some homemade lemoncello at the end of the meal which was the nicest we'd ever had (due , we were told to a secret ingredient!) and a plaque with the restaurant... More

excellent fresh seafood cooked by the owner's wife in a cosy taverna in a sidestreet in monopoli, very good atmosphere and service. The king prawns in limoncello are the best I've ever had, it was all I could do to stop myself lickig the plate!
