Visited this restaurant twice, once for lunch, once for dinner. It is a busy local fast paced restaurant, some waiters were friendly but the Mamma is grumpy and felt that she was hurrying us off the table. Tables are v close together and bumping into...other chairs and tables. No social distancing sadly. Food was lovely, local wine served in a carafe was v drinkable!More
We found this place by accident and were surprised by it's nice atmosphere and low prices. The food is good, variety of sea food on the menu. Their local white vine is also good. Service was fast and friendly. Do yourself a favor and finish...the evening with their bocconotto torta.More
This place does not follow ANY safety measure against Covid-19. Staff were wearing masks, but no distancing was in place between the tables. The restaurant is small and was incredibly packed, customers and waiters alike would bump constantly on our chairs or ourselves. As soon...as customers would leave their table, someone else was immediately ushered in, often even before the table was cleared and cleaned up. We all didn't feel safe.
The food was not of good quality, at all, especially the fish. We ordered three different types of pasta with fish (spaghetti allo scoglio, spaghetti al polpo and spaghetti agli scampi) and they all tasted exactly the same. The white clams spaghetti were tasteless. The mussels of the antipasto were pale yellow and looked off (we didn't dare try them). One of us was allergic to shrimps and found a piece of shrimp in her dish, despite having told the waitress while placing the order.
Honestly I am surprised by the amount of positive reviews, even from the same period we were there.
Luckily the service was fast, so we were able to escape in an hour.
Very cheap food, but definitely not worth it. For a couple of euros more you can find way nicer restaurants, with better quality food and more respectful of the safety rules and of the necessities of customers.More
Was recommend this place whilst in Monopoli and was not disappointed!
Firstly if you are looking for a peaceful meal - then maybe this place isn't for you! All the tables are very close together and has a loud atmosphere (for me it was great...because it is all part of the experience!).
The Fish is very well cooked and is so fresh it was lovely!
The house wine was great too (And so cheap!).
I would definitely recommend to come here if you like Fish!
I would recommend to get here early unless you don't mind waiting. We got seated straight away but when we left there was quite bit of a queue!
It is also great value for money!More
Well... i have chosen this place having read a blog about Puglia. Unfortunately we picked risotto with seafood. They say show me your risotto And i will know everything about the Restaurant.
It was disaster. I wouldnd even say you can call it rissotto. It...seemed they cook rise separetly And the seafood souse was tasteless. No smoothnes, no texture, ni taste. Disaster.More
We were in Monopoli for a day and chanced upon this little place. It looked deceptively quiet from the outside but it was absolutely buzzing inside, especially for Saturday.
We ordered the antipasti and seafood risotto for two, together with a half litre of white...wine. Wow the antipasti was on level of gray, mamma mia, the risotto was on another level - to die for!!
It was cooked with such good broth, rice, and seafood that it was clear we have a winner on our hands. The chilli oil that was on offer with the risotto was also super complementary to the works. Lip smacking goodness all in one plate!
Furthermore the staff were attentive and very friendly, they seem to take great pride in cooking and serving, which is always nice to see.
Will definitely revisit if I am ever back in Monopoli.
In fact, we went there again after one week and had the same risotto and fried seafood, where there was great consistency to the quality of the risotto.More
