“Delicous finale to our trip to Puglia”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Decided to end our trip with a lunch at La Marea. Tried to go last year but it was closed on the day we wanted to eat there.
Aldina is a genius in the kitchen, turning out authentic Puglian cuisine which is so full of flavour and perfectly cooked. Having said that, we had fish carpaccio as a starter, fresh and zingy, then spicy pasta with shrimps, artichokes, tomatoes and mint. Wish I'd had more space to try dessert! Really interesting wine list too. We ate on their beautiful shady and planted terrace. There's no sea view here, but that is largely compensated by the delicious food. One of the best meals we had in our two week holiday.
Hope to return next year!

“Excellent Italian restaurant”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Best of fresh food, excellent recommendation from the owner, typical local seafood and pasta with local ingredients, oil and lemon. Very good wine recommendation at moderate price. Price is not cheap for the region but absolutely fair and worth the money. Restaurant is a tipycal mediteranian style, very clean and chic. They were very nice to our four years old daughther. We felt absolutely welcomed. We will definitively go back to the place and recommend it to friends.

“Fresh food, fair price”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

They have a menu card with various choices. Good pasta and sea food. If you have special wishes, no problem. The prices are fair. It is not cheap, but it is not expensive. It is something between.The same for the wine selection.The kitchen is very clean and everything is made fresh. You can see the kitchen, there is a window. The owner is always there. Santino and Adina will help to make everybody happy. We stayed at the Borgo Enazia Hotel and were happy to find a restaurant with good seafood. There are many restaurants in the village Savelletri. It is difficult to find the right one. La Marea is a good choice. We will be back.

“Best surprise seafood meal!!!”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

I came with my parents and husband and had an amazing meal. We allowed the owner to choose our meal for us and all was perfect. Great portion size too. Even though there is not a sea view it is by far the best food in town. The waiter was very kind and attentive and the owner is lots of fun! The lovely chef makes absolutely everything including an amazing herbal liquor.
