Having heard Puglia was the gastronomic capital of Italy we arrived in Vieste with high hopes. For the first 3 days we were dismayed to find only overpriced, poorly prepared slop. Eventually we took to the pages of tripadvisor and found two great places. This was the best of those. Run by a delightful couple, the menu is small and changed daily. We had hoped for sardines but were told they weren't available until the next day because the full moon meant sardines had been impossible to fish.
We shared the platter of starters which included a selection of vegetarian and fish specialities, then had mixed grilled fish and shared a dessert. The dishes showed careful selection of ingredients, a real love for food and genuine care for the guests. Service was friendly and unobtrusive. If you're in Vieste, go,
Beware it's normally closed on Tuesdays

Food was great, hostess made you feel like you were a guest in her house. At the end of the meal - we had mandarino (an orange liquer) made by a nearby store. I still dream about how wonderful that was.

fantastic food and service, well worth a visit or 5.
We did make the mistake of not ringing to book one lunchtime (as advised) and arrived to find it closed. Lesson learnt

Six of us booked in to Taverna al Cantinone in Via Mafrolla, Vieste Old Town, on Saturday night at the end of a week touring Puglia. The atmosphere was friendly and lively - we were the only non-Italians there. The food was simply delicious, generous portions (no "art-on-a-plate" here!), expertly cooked and presented. The local pasta varieties and sauces were tasty, generous and just right, the fried and grilled fish selections were fresh, varied and perfectly-cooked, and the local red and white house wines were good quality and affordable. We ate well for €25-30 per person (including wine), and we were greeted and treated like locals. You can't ask for more. Thoroughly recommended (but book on a Saturday evening).

We had a very good dinner at this place much better than other peers in the neighborhood. Food was fresh and very good as well as the wine list. The price was very affordable. The interior was really nice as well. We definitely recommend this place, .
