Great food, followed the charismatic chefs' recommendation and fully satisfied with that. Nice setting outside. Chef speaks a couple of languages, but little point for improvement: other staff doesn't speak English at all.

We arrived at our trulle rental in Martina Franca in the early evening and after regrouping and a short swim in the pool, ventured into town to have dinner. There was a bustling festival in the town center but we were not up for street fare and moving through the crowd -- we were looking for a dinning experience that was both delicious and relaxed. We found this and more at the Osteria del Coco Pazzo da Stefano. You must go there; Stefano uses the bounty of the Puglia region and with passion, and an obvious love of food, creates delicious regional fare with his own twist. There were 4 of us including 2 kids - one teen, the other preteen, everyone enjoyed the meal, atmosphere and Stephano and his family. We ended up dinning at the Osteria twice during our twelve day stay in Puglia.

Arrived 9 pm on a Friday night and we were the only ones there. Sat outside on the terrace and whilst Stefano strikes me as personable and a great salesman we didn't think much of the food. 'Heavy' is the best way to describe it. I have eaten at a lot of better places for less than here in the Puglia area and given all the hype that previous reviewers have given it ( the only reason we chose this place) we left feeling pretty disappointed. Would look elsewhere first before comitting to spending your hard earned here.

It is hot as Hades here so an outside table was essential. So we reserved a long table under the ancient whitewashed buildings for the 11 of us, adults and children. We arrived slightly early (8pm) and made our own noise for a while so if you want atmosphere plan to eat at this buzzy atmospheric Osteria later. Stefano, the chef, was the perfect host, friendly, fun and informative about his delicious menu.... Mixed house antipasti for the table and a variety of Specials, meat, risotto for the main course, ALL of which was delicious. Stefano brought us a plate of ricotta and pumpkin filled ravioli with olive oil scented with truffle to try.... Mouthwatering. The children left while we digested and took care of the bill over a glass of limoncello (sp?) - also on the house from our host - then ambled back through the picturesque alleys of Martina Franca to the main piazza to reconnect with our families, which by now was a throng of people living la dolce vita...

We have dined in incredible restaurants all over the world and this was the most memorable and delicious meal we have had. Stephano was the ultimate host and brought us dish after dish of great fresh food. If I could bring him home with me I would. Don't miss this restaurant.
