“A magical place”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

We ate at La Taverna twice last week during our stay in Peschici. What an absolute gem of a place!!! Sitting outside by olive trees with fresh flowers at your table is a very magical and romantic experience. On both occasions we began with 'the pirate' anti pasti - fantastic value to share between two with the very freshest local seafood - delicious. The homemade pasta is fantastic and the portions are HUGE! The second time we ate here we had wanted to try salt-baked fish that we'd spied a diner having earlier in the week. Matteo, the wonderful owner, told us he didn't have the right fish for such a dish that evening but invited us to see what he did have available. He suggested a John dory which was cooked with tomatoes, basil, bay, olives. He also suggested a nice wine to accompany the dish. When it arrived, wow, did it look good. Served with some simple greens (also delicious) it was one of the best meals we've had in a long time. At the end of the evening, you are presented with 3 bottles: limoncello, a mandarin liqueur and a laurel liqueur, all on the house. We could so very nearly have missed this place as it is off the main drag; we're so pleased we didn't. If you still have room for more, grab a wonderful ice cream from the amazing parlour nearby and watch the passeggiata. Don't miss it!

“Comfortable”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

We were here on a rainy, windy night, slightly out of season. Only one other table was occupied and they appeared to be friends/family of the owners. Never the less, service was attentive, food was good. Although maybe not memorable since I don't recall what I had to eat.

At the conclusion of dinner, they offered the usual lemoncello, but also offered us a serving of gelato. The gelato was very good. That much I remember. Nice touch. Although I think it was offered because the family at the other table was celebrating some event.

“Wonderful food!”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

We came for lunch on a windy week day and we were the only paying customers. We did not know what to expect because an empty restaurant is usually a bad omen, but everything was freshly prepared, the service was correct, and the food was DELICIOUS! I warmly recommend the seafood antipasti, we received a number of cold and warm dishes, everything was fresh and absolutely wonderful. I was full already after the antipasti, but then followed the pasta which was equally delicious and the pasta portions were considerable. Our only regret is not to have eaten there at least once more before leaving the Gargano. Definitely worth the money!

“A must if visiting Peschici”
Reviewed August 15, 2010

An absolute “must” if you are visiting Peschici (Gargano, Italy). This
is not the usual restaurant that you can find in a tourist area.
Excellent service, warm atmosphere, and wonderful selection of fresh
seafood.
The beauty of this restaurant is the delicious mix of fresh seafood and
selected ingredients from Puglia. Having eaten fish dishes all over
the world I put this restaurant at the very best.
This is not a suggestion but an opportunity…if you will have the chance
to visit Peschici do not hesitate to book for the diner
