What a mistake. I couldn’t access tripadvisor before setting out for a night in Otranto – and I regretted it! We ended up at La Pignata and it managed to ruin our only night in Otranto. The service was utterly slow. I had no problem waiting 10-15 minutes for a table. But then we waited 20 minutes to even order – even though the server went by our table umpteen times. Then it took about 40 minutes to get our food (thank goodness we only ordered one course): baked fish and fettucine with frutta di mare. When I got my pasta – the cozze were cold and most of the seafood was tasteless. It wasn't particularly busy - there were only 5 tables in our section - so I'm not sure why it was so slow and food so bad. When I think what we paid - and compare it to our incredible experience at Le Stanzie - this place is just not worth it.
