Description: The gastronomic restaurant of the Palazzo Papaleo can be summarized in a short but significant sentence of the great Eduardo De Filippo: "Only after studying, thorough and respected tradition, you have the right to set it aside, but always with the awareness that we owe, at least, he had helped to clarify things. Of course, if it remains anchored the past, the continuing life becomes life that stops but, if we use tradition as a springboard for it is obvious that we will jump much higher. " The constant desire to improve, the search for new flavors that blend well with the local tradition and the special attention paid to guests, are the foundations of our way of looking at work. This continuous search of taste and excellence, joins the quality of products used to give guests an unforgettable moment of culinary emotions. Always open to new trends, but respectful of tradition, we prepare dishes from land and sea unique. A staff room and kitchen, made up of young and motivated lovers of his work, has allowed in recent years at the Restaurant of Palazzo Papaleo to become part of a quality market. Their way of making sparkling and cheerful, yet courteous and professional, will accompany your every evening giving you an experience to remember. In the period of spring-autumn we will welcome you in the inner rooms by the beautiful vaulted ceilings and charming fireplaces; Summer in the terrace inside the courtyard where intense scents of the sea and countryside are mixed. The cozy dining rooms and the outdoor restaurant in the courtyard lend themselves to be reserved for small celebrations or business lunches and dinners.

“Fantastic food in a lovely setting”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

We had dinner few times when on holiday here and I would recommend the restaurant as the best in the area of Otranto. Lots of customers come from outside the hotel. I would recommend it as a very good experience. Food is fantastic and the wine list very good.
