We ended in that restaurant, because we dared to ask the locals for a place where they also have meat... and we liked that restaurant a lot.
They do have nice seafood dishes as well as meat and good pasta, the ambiance is authentic and the staff friendly.

I went with my husband to this place because someone recomended to us. For the first time we did enter we wore just about to leave because they put us in a place that was smelling like spray for moschito. After we did say that we are not going to stay there, they found us another place. Lets say that first time the price we paid for dinner was more or less ok. Still a bit expencive for Puglia, but was important that the fish was fresh. The second night we did return there, the where out of order as I am still a bit in shoked that we had to pay 40 EURO for 4 small mullet fish! I think was the most expensive mullet I ever eat, not to mention the price for the other products that night. For sure we will not go there next time. well, is always time to learn!

The food was really nice, fish was fresh but the assortment was just average and prices too high compared to the overall experience.

We stayed in b & b "San Vincenzo" and the owners have suggested this restaurant, and we really thank them! Great food, delicious seafood, the best place we ate in our 15 days in Italy. I really recommend to all!

We ate very well in this family trattoria. Off the beaten track, but full of locals - families with well behaved children, creating a very warm atmosphere.
Mixed antipasto was delicious. Selection of sea food - we shared one between two and that was plenty.
We had primi of gnocchi with prawns and rucola, and tagliolini with fresh vegetables. Both fantastic. So ample that we could not manage secondi.
Instead had coffees with a smLl plate of cakes to share, which were delightful.
We had a quarter litre of the local rosato and same of the red, both very good.
Total cost €42. We mentioned that the cakes had been left off, but the owner said not to worry and charged us just €40 in total. A nice touch. Good value.
Head waiter quite miserable, and unfortunately seems to set the tone for the other serving staff - the only real negative point.
