We are an older American couple, spending a few days in Giovinazzo for the first time. Stopped one afternoon at Katiuscia for something to eat and drink. The tables and chairs outside along the seaside drive were most inviting! Many establishments are closed from 1 or 2 o'clock until evening, but Katiuscia was still open. We found the young staff at Katiuscia to be welcoming and most helpful, even with limited English! We had draft beers to drink, shared a hamburger and simple salad; was most sufficient and very reasonably priced.
So, our final day in the village found us wanting food and drink. Returning to Katiuscia seemed the thing to do! Ordered beers:small (piccolo) and large (grande) ; one of the young ladies who waited on us was kind enough to teach us the terms in Italian. Each of us ordered a ciabatta type sandwich; we should have shared only one! The sans were of (more than a foot long) submarine type and were just 6 Euro apiece. Our beers were served quickly and also a complimentary plate of herbed and toasted ciabatta chunks. The sweet waitress that delivered the plate commented that "this goes really good with beer"! After eating and drinking at our leisure, my husband went in to pay and at the same time, one of the young women delivered a plate of lovely sweets to our table! Needless to say, we were overcome by their kind hospitality, so we graciously accepted this gift and ordered two caffe to accompany the desserts!
