Although a bit out of the way, this osteria is in a beautiful location that is a delight to eat in. Stefano and his staff were very friendly and willing to recommend dishes... but unfortunately we felt our food fell short of the expectations we had built up after looking at the reviews on TA. Our main courses were greasy and bland, and our deserts were not as good as others we had in the region. Overall, a bit disappointing.

What could be better than eating amazing food on a beautiful outdoor terrace in a charming village in Puglia called Martina Franca? Having Chef Stefano to welcome you and keep you laughing while he brings you his incredible creations.
This is a MUST if you go to the Puglia region!

Not only is the setting and food fantastic, you are greeted by Chef Stefano who remembered us from our visit to his restaurant in 2012. The monkfish was perfectly prepared, moist and delicious. The wine list features many excellent local Puglian wines (white and red) and the dessert, a light filled pastry type puff with filling, whose Italian name I cannot remember, was incredible.

Martina Franca has a number of restaurants serving good food but every now and then you can come across the exception where the food is just not good but fantastic. We both started with the black pasta with mussels and clams, this was exceptional with perfectly cooked shellfish and great pasta, this was a dish that I did not want to finish and was disappointed when the plate was empty. WOW what a start. For our main dishes we had duck breast (where on earth do they get the meat as I have not seen ducks locally) and Medallions of beef. Both were perfectly cooked and oh so tender. Stefano is wonderfully attentive and a good host. He must have a good team behind him as he spends his time at the front of house with his customers. There is a good wine list with selection of white, rosato and red wines from Puglia and selected regions of Italy. I would be hcoappy to recommend Osteria del Coco Pazzo.
