Description: In the center of Lecce, Osteria Spirits welcomes you with a pleasant atmosphere warm and cozy. An oasis of good food thanks to a kitchen that gives great satisfaction from a raw material of excellent quality, which makes it possible to prepare the tasty appetizers of vegetables in traditional dishes from Salento, and various homemade sweets. Excellent wine list and spirits.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012

I hate to write a really bad review of a restaurant, but my husband and I had a bad experience there, the kind one rarely has in Italy. It was recommended by a friend who lives in Lecce, a friend I trust and have no doubt that she has had good experiences there. For us, though, it was disappointing.
We were far too hurried when it came to ordering. The young woman who took our order did not listen when we talked about what we wanted, and she misled us about the nature of certain things on the menu. Finally, we had a problem with the bill. This has happened to us once in 20 years of travel i Europe.
We loved Lecce and especially Roof Barroco where we stayed, but we won't be back to this restaurant and cannot recommend it even though you might well have a good experience.

“Nice upmarket Osteria”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2012

Very nice atmosphere and tasteful decoration, plus good food and exhaustive winelist. Overall a good experience and reasonably priced, but not cheap. Would rate it 3,5 on the 0-5 scale

“Slow food experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2012

Lots of topics on Slow Food in/around Lecce, but not really clear what they intend to present. Okay, the food was fine; service somewhat slow, but overall no real "special" treat.
Good quality, great selection of wines, which are standing around everywhere.

“Good Food. Uninspiring Wait Staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2011

Had lunch here on our first day in Lecce. Food was very good. But, hey it's Italy. The food in the AutoGrills on the autostrada are excellent too!

Our waitress may have been having an off day but she was unattentive. We found better places while in Lecce.
