I choose the restaurant based on TripAdvisor ratings and reviews. Menu was simple and contained only couple of meals in each category. However, once the food arrived (and it arrived fast) all nine of us were pleasantly surprised with the arrangements and we all ordered different meals. Ingredients were fresh, tasty and portions were just of right size. I would recommend the place to people who like quiet atmosphere and would like to enjoy tasting some unusual combinations of italian cuisine, which is very difficult to find in Puglia.

We arrived on a bleak afternoon and once there got the last of the three tables- a private party took over the rest of this delightful place. Regardless service was terrific. Food simple but wonderful. We all had a pasta to start- seafood pasta and a very light lemon cream pasta sauce both served over their homemade trofie. We all had the spigola and all enjoyed the simple preparation of lemon and parsley. Wine lovely and gentlemen enjoyed the dessert of puff pastry. Recommend this place if in Giovinazzo!

We ate here twice once as a couple and once with friends. The food is excellent - local and fresh and full of flavour. We drank local wines recommended by the host for both meals which were very good and well priced. The pasta is freshly made - and I heartily recommend the squid!

My only criticism was that the owner recommended mixed antipasti as a starter as a group. It was delicious but the cost ended up being far higher than if we had ordered a selection ourselves. And because there was so much we ordered far fewer mains so it didn't really help him. It wouldn't stop me going again but I would be more careful about ordering.

The food was of excellent quality, but portions were a bit on the small side. The owner was very helpful and was able to explain the menu in English

Service was very good. Spoke English very well. Didn't quite live up to our expectations. Bit pricy for the food.
