This restaurant was not only recommended in TripAdvisor but also in an Italian travel magazine that did an edition on Puglia. I'm glad that we had the opportunity to visit and enjoy their food. I loved being able to sit outside in their courtyard, away from the city streets and crowds.

Staff was attentive and helpful. They even have English menus available.

For antipasto we had the scarmorza with speck (so incredible). For dinner my husband had the paccheri pasta with seppole - and he loved it. One of the best dishes he had while we were traveling. I had the sagne with a tomato based sauce - which was also very good. We thought the wine was excellent and even bought some in Lecce to bring back home.

My husband and I had a lovely dinner in the very romatic garden. Candlelight, tables generously spaced... The service is very attentive and we loved the wine the waitor recommended. The food is very fresh and full of flavour. If we visit Lecce again, we will definitely have another dinner here.

We dined there the last night in the beautiful town of Lecce and it was lovely! The atrium garden was beautiful, the food deliciuos and the waiters proffesional and yet friendly. I have recommended this restaurant to all Puglia travelers I know.

Simple Italian food with a modern take. Good prompt service, delicious food (risotto, tartare tuna, pork with mint) and nice atmosphere. Full of the locals having a Friday night out. Recommended!
