“A homemade lunch in Lecce”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This restaurant is hidden away in the backstreets of Lecce but well worth seeking out.

No outside seating and a traditional and slightly dark interior but what delicious food!

We stopped for a well earned lunch after pounding Lecce's streets. We started with a plate of local hams and cheeses and then selected the day's special pasta with shrimps and asparagus. We finished with the most delicious green apple "tarte tatin" with ice cream and caramel.

The service was a little off hand but this is a restaurant which appeals equally to tourists an dlocals which is unusual in Lecce.

“A "must" for Lecce”
Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

This is the third time I have eaten at Trattoria Nonna Tetti. If you want to experience typical dishes from the area then eat here. The food is always good and the service is excellent. You can't go wrong with Nonna Tetti.

“Good food, service not so good”
Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

It is a nice restaurant to sit in and the evening we visited it, it was not all full. The food was very good. Antipasti as a starter and followed by a pasta. Off course. But after that......no one came to our table any more, except for cleaning the table.
After 35-45 minutes waiting without the possibility to order something else (they were not coming upstairs anymore), we decided to go down, pay the bill and to go. A shame, because we would have liked to try the horse meat. So good food, not so good service (at least not the evening that we were there). Oh...in summertime I think it can get quite hot on the first floor...

“Just not quite there ... but close”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

My wife and I ate hear for dinner a bit over a week ago. We started out with the mozzarella and prosciutto and then each had a pasta course. And if were just that simple, I think that the place would get a higher rating. All dishes were delicious. The mozzarella was smooth with just a slight salty zest. The prosciutto was average--nothing worth writing about. Both pasta courses were delightful, most notably the gnocchi.

The problem was that only one waitress was taking orders. The rest were delivering food and clearing the tables. And the restaurant was crowded, so much so that it was hard to order. Also that waitress spoke lovely English and the rest didn't. We don't speak Italian (of course, not her fault), so it was annoying that the only person who could help us was so busy that she couldn't help us.

“excellent meal reasonably priced”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

We were recommended this restaurant by a local shopkeeper. Both food and service were outstanding. Book for dinner, as if not you can expect to line up for a table.
