Good food, but service almost non-existent. We felt unwelcome and uncomfortable. The only pleasant person was the friendly older cook. We wanted another course but no service, even though only 6 other diners, so eventually collected menus myself. The sorbet (commercially produced) I had for dessert tasted like the nasty lemon powder one might have bought as a small child... More

Very nice location in a typical local medieval Acaya house. Food is good and well cooked. Not too many options to choose from but quality of the dishes we tried was high and service was good. Marco

Very good and abundant salento antipasto (1 for 2), then delicious fave and cicoria. Good the agnello with patate and pezzettini di cavallo. The parmigiana is not... More

Spent 4 days just outside the village of Acaya so was able to eat at the 3 restaurants located in the town. Not much difference experienced eating at all three. We were welcomed warmly by the owner.
