A quick visit to The castle del Monte perhaps a snack before heading back to a delightful town of Trani where were staying.
Leaving the site we saw a cafe and small Resturant just by the coach park. It could be so easily missed....DON'T ! What a treat.
Knowing we were going out for a meal in the evening, eight of us were undecided what to have. With only one of us speaking Italian, the owner came out and made some suggestions.
A plate of anti pasta and perhaps a small plate of pasta with some local wine. Sounded fine.
Three cake stand dishes came out with a delicious mixture of cold meats, mozzarella, courgette, radish, broad beans. Baskets of home made bread and local wine. The red wine in particular was good and from the local area.
Next came small plates of black pasta freshly made with tomatoes and mushrooms. The tomatoes sung of sunshine and sweetness. We were then given another small dish with the same black pasta know in English as rabbit ears, with roasted vegetables cooked in their local olive oil.
Filled with that lovely feeling that we had eaten one of the best local meals one could of wished for, was given small squares of delicious strawberry cake with our coffee.
Three bottles of wine, two hours later, we came out with a bill for €25 each.
It's worth a trip just for that wonderful meal.

We stopped by the Taverna just because hungry. It had a menu... a bit expensive for a snack but it was actually the only place near the attraction Castel del Monte. For this reason, having no competitors, I didn't expect to find a good restaurant.
On the contrary, may be because we had no expectations, we found a good and fine restaurant with a good atmosphere.
Dishes were tasty and well presented. Not exceptional but good.
When planning your day-trip or excursion to the castle, include this restaurant, it will make it nicer (if you don't mind to pay 11 euro for a dish of pasta).
Consider that you can reach the restaurant (and the castle!) by car only from Novembre to... March? Otherwise you have to park downhill and take the shuttle up to the castel (if the service is active).
