We were looking for somewhere to have lunch away from the tourist centre of Ostuni and spotted the Caffe Cavour as we walked up the road. It's easy to miss!!! We were the only diners - though I can see it being a very popular evening venue.
A super setting, being the oldest olive mill in Puglia, apparently, and the explanation of how it all worked from the waitress was fascinating.
As we were having a simple lunch we opted to have just Primo Piatti. My wife had pasta with octopus. The octopus was a little rubbery, but the overall taste was great.
I had pasta with cherry tomatoes which I expected to be bursting with flavour - but wasn't. I had to season it quite vigorously to get the flavour out - and I'm not a big fan of over seasoning food.
However, our lovely waitress tempted us with dessert. I had the Tiramisu which was exceptional. My wife had a white chocolate mousse ball with a pistachio centre which was stunning.
All in all a nice meal, just let down by the pasta dishes.
