Serving traditional fare from the Puglia region!! The food is the typical country fare designed to help stretch the food budget - hearty and delicious!! I love that they serve Padre Peppe from a watering can!

It was a bit of a trip to actually find it , and I'm fluent in Italian no less, but well worth it. Literally a hole in the wall with everyone signing the walls with remarks. Food was amazing believe me it is worth the trip if your nearby! Very reasonably priced as well.

Been to this place many times with my girlfriend, friends or business. It's the right place if you like old school food and if you are the kind of person that likes eating quality but quantity too.

I'm from the North of Italy and decided to visit Altamura on the way from Puglia to Naples. I asked around and a few locals recommended this typical osteria.

Pein assut I believe is the soul of altamura kitchen. You can taste there only courses with fresh and daily ingredients. Don't ask for the menu, just ask and have fun with the owners and theit assistants, they will help you out with the food!!! If you need a restaurant in Altamura this is the right place to go.

Great homemade local dishes at seriously low prices. Cosy atmosphere to catch up with old friends or relax after work with colleagues. House wine was reasonable served in a rustic jug. Service efficient and polite.

This is the best restaurant in town for trying the local cuisine. A small and cosy family restaurant. Unfortunately closed on Sundays and make sure to make a reservation or come early during lunch.
My personal favorite: zuppa di lenticchie e carpaccio cotto
