We were too late in the season for the terrace, but ate indoors and it was lovely. Two appetizers (mussels/clams and the zucchini), the orecchiette and the frittura mists plus a bottle of wine and water came to 54 euros at lunch. We heard the owner call someone for the fish after we ordered and a few minutes later a man showed up with it...moments later, it was at or table. Now THAT is fresh!

Having eaten at several other restaurants in Monopoli and the surrounding area, we found La Vecchia Taverna and ate there three times. It was a lovely experience. The food, fresh and simple, was delicious and the service impeccable. We tried a range of dishes, all very good, and particularly liked the aubergine antipasto. The tiramisu was the best ever. The waiter was discreet and attentive and the welcome from Vito was warm and jolly. His English was fine. We enjoyed the spacious roof terrace. Anyone who loves Italian cooking should visit this restaurant.

People should not expect Ritz or Savoy quality. This is local food, served in a family run environment. The fish is fresh, we had a serving of mussels, followed by Spaghetti with yet more mussels. Tasty and faultless, The lemon sorbet at the end had an extra kick, as they actually had some Limoncello for a particular flavour. Used it for a late lunch, and despite being the second half of september, the terrace was way too hot for a meal, so we ate indoors.
Do not expect 5 star London service and food. This is honest and wholesome food.

Sometimes you don't need luxury to feel grate in one place! A very normal terrace with sea view. I've eat an amazing mussels mix. The owner Is a very charismatic guy, mister Vito. I truly recomand this place to feel the Italian cuisine in an Italian ambient. Thank you mister Vito for the wonderful lunch we had there.
