We visited Da Umberto several times. Each time we got as starter many different fish or seafood creations. And each visit it was a different. All of it was fantastic. After all these small brilliant dishes, we took a pasta(with fish, fish eggs, sea urchin, ...) or a whole fish with a crust of salt. Sparkling wine for the beginning... More

Would recommend if in the... More

Looks good but then disappointing. Service poor with over 1 hour beforereceiving even drink, choice limited with nothing if you do not feel like havibg something with tomatoes, quite arrogant people too.

nothing bad to write about this place, in fact to the contrary, very nice environment, beautiful garden and great service.....but I found it a little too formal, a sought after place for the guests that want privacy and be treated like royalties.....not for myself I am afraid. The food was ridiculously expensive but also very good. We skipped the primo... More

Umberto himself greeted us warmly and showed us his whole ristorante. We laughed a lot with the friendly waiter. The meal was great and everyone of us was happy. Saturday and Sunday, the pizzeria opens and umberto presents up to 1m long pizzas!! After the coffee, umberto told storys and explained us a lot about puglia,salento,italia and more:) In alta...

Every year we go back to Otranto in August and, when dinner time comes, we go back to Umberto's restaurant. You can truly trust quality and taste of food, everything is fresh and deliciously cooked. Sometimes they will tell you that something on the menu is not available, but that only means that they do not use frozen stuff and... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident near crowded Otranto. Lots of locals dining in which is usually a good thing. Umberto himself checks on the tables himself (we could tell as there are pictures of him all over the place) if you're an Italian guest/friend. As we were from abroad, we were waited on by the other staff... Nevertheless:... More
