Very good local food. Friendly service and good English spoken. Looks small from the outside but has a large seating area at the back and a roof terrace. Good value for money too.

The food was so good....mussel and also the baked pasta.

Vito gave us his wife 'a homemade limoncello as a treat.

We were waiting out a storm and he and his daughter we cloned us in staying it out.

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.
