“Not at all as expected or advertised”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

Average quality food, small portions, high cost, very very slow (starter and main course took 2+ hours..). There are local restaurants that cost 1/3 less and have much better quality food!

“Incredible!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2012

Imagine a world class restaurant such as Bocuse in Lyon or Ducasse in Paris and you have Chef Ippazio's restaurant Lemi in the ancient town of Tricase in Italy's SE heel, Salento near Greece. Ippazio exploits the bounty of fresh and local seafood and vegetables to make magic. Worth a trip. Great regional wine list, too.
