“Lovely lunch spot”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

While Bari is a good sized city, lunch choices for tourists can be confusing. We passed up expensive restaurants filled with upper end business people as well as obvious tourist restaurants. The covered patio area was shady and cool. Swordfish carpaccio is a local delicacy and they do it well here with lovely olive oil and pink peppercorns. I went for a very local entree of white fish on ceci paste (chick pea paste) which was distinctive and delicious. While Primitivo wines imported to the US are usually sub-standard, the local Primitivo we had with lunch was so good we ordered another 2 glasses. From here you can walk out along the water back to the main streets.

“Bad experience”
Reviewed January 4, 2010

I visited the restaurant on 01.01.2010 in the evening and ordered the recommendet grilled lamb by the waitress. I got 4 pieces of "meat" consisting of more than 70% of fat. Unfortunately I was hungry and eat it up (the result was, that I spend the night on the toilet). Sorry, but I can not recomend this restaurant!

“Nice, simple restaurant”
Reviewed October 5, 2009

I had a nice lunch here. It is located nearby the old town, in Piazza Mercantile. Many restaurants in this area, but this one was suggested by Bari's people. Good quality/price ratio.

“good friendly atmosphere in the old town”
Reviewed February 21, 2009

Consider that in the old town there are few good restaurants (mostly pub or pizza shops and some bad restaurants).
This restaurant is a quite good (one of the best ), the atmosphere is friendly and the wine good. Suggested if you want absolutely to stay in the old town for dinner, especially avoid saturday night (all the old town for a "real" dinner).
