“Very poor attitude!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

We went there for lunch today - first mistake was trying to go for lunch on a Monday when everything in Ostuni is closed except La Reggia. We were seated downstairs and commented on how nice the atmosphere was. All was going ok food was pretty good for antipasti not the best but ok for the price. Sadly I ordered the mussel pasta and when it came out a majority of the mussels were closed. Being a foodie and knowing that it is not wise to mess with closed shellfish we queried the freshness of the seafood with what I can only assume was the manager on duty. Instead of apologizing instead he got quite heated marched into the kitchen and presented me with a plate of raw mussels so that I could test the freshness. He then proceeded to insult our party to the other Italian diners that were in the restaurant and even accused my father if being drunk for not being happy to open the mussels with a knife. Sadly this completed ruined what otherwise would have been an acceptable meal - average but ruined by an appalling attitude by the staff. I would never go back especially as the owner came out to speak to him on the situation. Very poorly handled and the food really wasn't all that. Would recommend you avoid this place and go to caffe Cavour instead! Much better food, service and atmosphere for the same money!

“Nice little restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

Prices and service were nice here. We ate downstairs in the restaurant. There is also terasse outside, but it was way too hot to eat there during day.

“Excellent setting and plenty of gluten free choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2011

Hard to go wrong eating outside in beautiful Ostuni but this really is a lovely spit to enjoy a great meal and watch the people if the town go by at night. My middle daughter is celiac and the choice of gluten free pasta was superb which added to the great evening. Gets very busy so either arrive early or take your luck.

“Better than expected given its location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2010

Given this place's position on the main street through the historic (tourist) area I was expecting something over priced and not that special. Actually it was great - good fish and a really fantastic veal steak. Nice to sit outside and people watch!
