I love a good spicy marinara sauce! Not sure why, but I feel like I can't always find a perfectly spiced sauce. I was pleased to have dined at La Cantina dello Zio, as here I found what I was looking for!

This restaurant has a HUGE menu. I also enjoyed riso al forno alla barese, a rice, potato, and mussels dish that I would fly back for.

The restaurant is located in a good spot in the old town. They have outdoor seating which I enjoyed with no reservation because I came early. I would suggest that if you are more than 2 people, get a reservation.

The waitstaff were helpful and friendly. I would return for sure!

This place is pretty welcoming and offers beneficial combos, we had the one with starters (taralli snacks, olives, bruschetta) + pasta (lasagna/orechetti/ravioli) + glass of wine + coffee. We weren't up for an evening coffee and got a shot of delicious limonchello instead. The stuff is nice and friendly, the restaurant is decent for a local meal

we were looking for a particular restaurant when we came across this place and i thought it didn't look anything fancy but we were hungry and it was reasonable so gave it a go. The pesto pasta was delicious along with my friend's carbonara (her favourite dish!). We ate here again the next night! The pesto wasn't half as good but they seem to realise and took it away and added some more! Good cheap red house wine. Fantastic service. Got some mini bruschette freebies and limoncello to top it off. Great place and fab staff.
