I really, really wanted to love this place because it has everything I look for in an Italian restaurant: it's small, nonna rules the roost, it just looks good. First, they have too many tables in too small a space; ok, I don't like it...but I can live with it. Then Noona comes out to take the order and it's a train wreck. I speak Italian but in both Italian and English it's like she can't concentrate on taking our order. Then she starts pushing us to have everything brought out at once, instead of first course, second course, etc. Basically she wants to rush us through the meal. We finally agree that we'll take the courses all at once (so weird!) and within five minutes they're bringing out the first part of our meal. Frankly, our table wasn't even big enough to accommodate all of our dishes all at once and we ended up putting some things on the next table (until it was occupied). The salads came out with little plastic packets of olive oil and vinegar; this is in Italy???? We later saw other tables with bottles of olive oil but we had the little plastic packets. We were in the back room of the restaurant and it was packed full of people, to the point that many of the people couldn't leave their tables without multiple other people at other tables getting up to let them out. At the end of the meal they tried to bring out another plate of food because they didn't know that someone had already brought that serving out before; it took a while to make them understand we had already eaten it once and didn't want it again. The food was actually not bad but it is 180 degrees opposite a traditional Italian experience. Sorry, no, I can't recommend this to anyone.More

Nightmare restaurant, it’s a tourist trap. Small portions and dizaster food. We ordered spaghetti allo scoglio it was literally canned tomatoes with over cooked shrimps. Everything tasteless. Full of people with tables touching with one another. Never again, I absolutely do not recommend, just do...not go there.More

Walked into this restaurant with no prior knowledge and no reservations. It was busy and we were seated at the all time worst table, at the intersection of the bar, bussing station & passageway to the rest of the restaurant. The worst part was the...slamming down of the menus right beside our heads as they reached over us to return them to the pile. The food was mediocre at best, and way over salted.More

So this family run restaurant is a place that we would go to every night that we were visiting in monopoli We looked forward to the fresh delicious food and the fast courteous service each time we were there. The food is simple and wonderful...the local wine is soft and delicious-there’s not a big menu and it’s not complicated but it’s just perfect. Interior reminds me of Greece it’s white with blue trim and in a cave like setting. On numerous occasions we had a mixed fried seafood platter which was unbelievable as well as some of the pasta dishes which were delicious and served in metal trays to keep it hot. Pasta was always cooked to perfection! These people take pride in what they serve and it’s guaranteed that you will have a lovely experience here.More

We wouldn’t recommend this place, the portion was super tiny (2 shrimps, a little piece of octopus and another piece of fish for 12 euro)?? Salad had sand in it. The only good thing is that the house wine is cheap. The staff wasn’t very...friendly and tried to take our dishes away while they were still half full and just in general tried to rush us while taking the order took them a long time.More

Food was good however the staff are unwelcoming, unhappy, and the service is poor. I didn’t even feel like I could ask for the pepper mill. The atmosphere is very busy and stressful in a tight space, was a shame as it was the last...night of our holiday. We decided to eat quickly and leave.More

On Tuesday night, my girlfriend, her family and I ate at this restaurant. As soon as we arrived, we already wanted to get out because we didn’t have a very good welcoming. We order different things but almost all of them were below average for...quality. Personal staff was not good and we were unhappy about this. I hope they’re gonna get better because the location is very nice. For now, not recommended. 4 out of 10.More

The pasta was over cooked and the sauce was watery. The only good thing to say about this place is that the wait time is minimal, but we’d rather wait longer for a proper pasta. Wouldn’t recommend.

Very nice, authentic, fish restaurant. The place is small and only has tables inside. A bit cramped, but worth it. Highly recommend the antipasti, fish and grilled shrimp. Reasonable prices.
