“Amazing restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

We had ordered 1 antipasto to share, plus two entrees. We had to cancel one entree because the antipasto was SO big that it was enough to feed two people.
Cute little restaurant, definitely better than what we expected. Cheap, amazing food and Noci is a beautiful town to visit at night with its suggestive "gnostre".

“Wonderful!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

So happy to find this place on Tripadvisor. L'Antica Locanda remains one of the top 5 meals we have ever had, and we have had a LOT of meals. We found it completely by accident during a trip in 2009, and had the most wonderful and memorable experience there. Pasquale had just won the Slow Food competition for Italy in 2008, and when we shared our interest in the movement, he brought us so much food over a three hour period, we had to ask him to stop!!! We also discovered Primitivo wine here, and have enjoyed it ever since. We look forward to the day when we will have the opportunity to return again.

“Good choice if you look for local quality food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

I've been at this restaurant for a family lunch during the Christmas period. It's one of the best restaurants in Noci, serving local quality food and wine (it is a "slow food" location) in a traditional setting (i.e. stone vaulted ceiling). The personnel is kind and attentive - one of us had special dietary requirements and they took good care of it. I would recommend the selection of antipasti - some are traditional, some more "innovative", but they all are definitely tasty. I also enjoyed the pasta dish (tagliatelle ai funghi porcini). The meat was also good, maybe slightly overlooked for my taste. Overall, it's a definitely good choice if you wish to experience traditional food from Apulia.

“Great service Friendly Good food Good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

We are a group of three people and our Italian was very minimal. The owner of the restaurant was very friendly. Although there were menus in English, he insisted to explain the menu and take order with the assistance of another staff who spoke some English. They were very flexible and always accommodated our needs at their best. So my vegetarian friend and I respectively got a special dish not on the menu but very delicious. Antipasti was great with good portion. They offered specially selected liquor to go with different desserts, which was very nice. The bill we paid was very reasonable too. 60 euros in total for the food, wine and desserts we had and the overall service and atmosphere, it's good value.

All in all, the restaurant took good care of its food and its customers. It's highly recommended.

*The restaurant is very popular with locals and tourist. Reservation is highly recommended.
