We stopped at this small inviting restaurant after a long walk around the harbour to the beautiful romanesque cathedral (not to be missed}. We sat at the first table which gave us a good view of the harbour and the boats. The seafood antipasto was fresh and delicious as was the pasta dish, a specialty of the Puglia region. We chose a local Puglia red wine which, as usual, was also delicious. We would recommend this restaurant to visitors for its excellent food and wine and also its reasonable price and superb service. We hope to visit it again in the future.

Sitting on the harbour looking at the fishing fleet with the old castle in the background .. This is almost perfect and then the meal! Try the anchovies, spade and salmon mare plate for two! Just terrific. The wine of the region makes a perfect accompaniment and the service friendly and helpful If you have room dessert is great too.. We will be back!

Someone recommended this restaurant to us for dinner and we were so happy to find it so good! The service was very attentive and prompt. The seafood, pasta and pizza were all delicious and good portions, the house wine very good. It was pleasant to sit outside by the harbor in the evening, relaxing with the sound of the water, and eating such a great meal. The price for three of us was very reasonable for the meals, under 36 euro, and we did not leave hungry. If we return to Trani someday, we would definitely dine here again.

This restaurant is also a pizzeria, who wants to eat pizza at a port? The fishing boats come in , they berth at the dock , where their own stall is right there, and they sell their catch of the day. Not fifteen feet from the restaurant. What a fascinating view.

We were late for pranzo, lunch. The waitress was more than happy to accommodate us, even though we can see only one table was free. Our table as all the rest, gave us a great view of the port, and it's activities. The service was very attentive. She was serving 20 odd guests, but she showed no fret, no hurry.

There is an offer of sampling 4-5 different seafood, for 15 Euros. We had that for our main course. There were shrimp, salmon, anchovies, calamaries, an undentifiable white fish, and a small mound of what looked like a muffin. The last was fish, parsley, potatoe, a bit of garlic, mashed and all wrapped up in thin slices of yellow fried squash, it was really yummy. All the four dishes were a la cervice, each with its own different marienated sauce. the shrimp were fried, and has another sauce on them, plus a coulis of wonderful balsamic vinegar. The bruschetta base was not toast or stored bought bread, but small thin buns, baked on the premise, sliced in half, served hot. Small halved cherry tomatoes was used in place of the usual chopped tomatoes. Small leaves of basilico were used, again, not chopped and mixed with the tomatoes. The presentation was beautiful, and the sauce, with oregano was different, but delicious.

The surprise was that it was not expensive at all.
I am only sorry we were on day trip out to Trani, otherwise we would eat there again to sample other offerings. Be sure to return, hopefully.
