“Average place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Went for an early dinner on
A Monday night as most of the restaurants in town were closed.
Had pasta, veal and meat with herbs.
The food was ok, well cook, simple, the pasta wasn't the best we tried in puglia.
Unlikely most restaurants in Italy the waiting staff wasn't very friendly if anything a bit rude, we were given a table in an empty bit of the restaurant as we were dinning with a kid which may disturb the other customers.
Overall an ok place but there are much better around this area.

“Cute place, nice food, but nothing special.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Walking through Locorotondo, just through the old gates we first saw a cute little alley with some tables and chairs set out, and almost immediately sat down. But we decided to walk on a little and after only paces, the scene repeated itself, and then almost immediately again. There are quite a few of these cute alleyways with restaurants hidden away. In the end, we chose this one without having any specific reason as to why. It turned out fine, the starters, fried courgettes/zucchinis and meatballs were fine, and the first courses were fine too. However, we did find better food at similar prices elsewhere in Puglia. The only negative is the "vino a consumazione". Unlike in some places where you can ask for a quarter or half of the house wine, here they bring you a bottle and you pay for what you drink. The problem here is the measurement of what was consumed. I would say that I (I was the only one drinking wine) consumed somewhere between a quarter and a half but I paid for a half. I supposed finishing the bottle is a solution! Having said this the cost is so little that it's not a big problem.

“Great Pugliese food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

We had a superb lunch in locorontodo. The place was full on a Saturday afternoon, but still the service was friendly and efficient. We enjoyed an anti pasta of meatballs and courgettes and then great pasta followed by some wonderful slow cooked cuts of a variety of meat.

“Poorest food of the holiday”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

We went to this restaurant as several other restaurants we looked at in the town had menus that were totally meat based and this one had more vegetable dishes.
The grilled vegetable starter was very disappointing, the roasted raddichio was so bitter as to be inedible, the aubergine slimy, it was a strange mixture of over-chilled veg alongside hot veg, not enjoyable. My partners cheese plate was boring and tasteless
The pasta was heavy and doughy, almost like gnocchi rather than pasta.
The least enjoyable meal of our 10 days in Puglia.

“Great restaurant.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

I don't understand why this restaurant is not rated more highly. It is typically Italian with good, solid service and really good food. The restaurant provided great olives and we had grilled vegetables to start. Pasta dishes were excellent and carpaccio served as a main course for one of us. The recommended primitivo wine was excellent and creme caramel and tiramisu rounded out an excellent meal. Go with confidence!!!!
