“Bad experience”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

I was referred to the restaurant by a local person from the area who highly recommended it to me. I ordered fish of the day for an entree and fruit de mer for appetizer.. The appetizer wasn't bad but the entree was terrible, service was bad and the bread was as hard as a rock... My bill was 50 Euros... It wasn't worth it..
I usually careless for writing reviews, but I was pissed that I had to say something to someone ..my advise stay away.

“Excellent food - What about upgrading the service with... a smile”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

The food was excellent, such a good tasting experience... that we decided to shorten after the first main course as the attitude of the staff (and more specifically the big fat guy in charge) was so annoying. We are not looking for friends in a restaurant but at least don't make us feel like you are bored to death by our presence...

“A must in Lecce”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

This seafood restaurant in the heart if Lecce is a definite must if you want to try a meal prepared with imagination. The food and wine is exquisite and the waiters will take an absolute care of you.
The prices do reflect the food but they are not exaggerated, We loved it!

“Very local and very tastey seafood”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

If you are looking for an elegant formal dinner, with an excellent seafood, with many dishes prepared in a Lecce / Salento style of cooking and at the right atmosphere (and English speaking staff) , head to Alex Ristorante. You will not be disappointed. (Yet, expect above average prices to reflect the high quality attention from the wait-staff )
