We have just returned from a week in the Salento region. We came across this family run restaurant in Santa Maria al Bagno by chance. We sat outside on the terrace and the view overlooking the bay was beautiful at sunset. The staff are extremely attentive and the food was superb; so much so that after trying another restaurant in the locality and being very disappointed, we spent the remainder of our holiday eating here.We spent 3 evenings at the restaurant, sampling the antipasto misto, carpaccio of beef, seafood risotto, ravioli and the fillet of beef, which for me was the most memorable, and was one of the best steaks I have ever tasted. Oh and the chocolate cake pudding with the melting centre was "to die for", and that is from someone who doesn't "do " desserts!
There is also a very good selection of local wines. The manager was very friendly, spoke excellent engish and was very helpful with the menu. This was by far the best restaurant we found in the area, both in terms of the quality of the food, the service and the general ambience...and the price? We paid an average of 70 Euros each of the 3 evenings we were there (35 Euros a head) incuding wine.
