About
In un borgo nel cuore del Salento nasce Origano come format di ospitalità della Menhir Salento S.p.A.: la grande sala, le salette e il giardino. Ogni ambiente custodisce l’atmosfera della civiltà del Sud. Abbiamo vestito la nostra dimora settecentesca con grazia, cercando di catturare e far respirare la magia della nostra terra. L’Osteria dà origine a una cucina di frontiera, tipicamente territoriale, ma dai confini sfumati. Nasce e restituisce piccoli piaceri fatti di sensazioni, profumi e colori.

Highly overrated
Sep. 2020 • Family
Highly overrated, not worth the money you spend, classic example of a tourist trap. Food was just ok, wine was decent, service felt rushed. You can find many other Italian restaurants for a much better experience and value for money

A hidden Gem.. a must visit!
Sep. 2020 • Couples
Food & service was exceptional. Wine is included within the food cost which is mind blowing for the quality and amount of wine you are given.

The outdoor terrace is beautiful, food superb and the service is detailed in terms of where each item is farmed and how it is cooked. Enjoy!

Amazing food and wine tasting
Sep. 2020 • Family
I visited this restaurant with my family. The food here is so delicious - there is an amazing selection of local dishes and pastas. I have a gluten allergy and all the allergens were clearly listed on the menu which was so helpful! The waiter matched the wines to the food and you could buy any of the wines in the shop next door. It is a hidden gem in the town - you must visit this restaurant!

Nice Location - Amazing Food
Aug. 2020
Beautiful restaurant in the middle of Minervino di Lecce. Right away, when you enter the location you feel the positive atmosphere.
The restaunrant is located in a nicely decorated backyard. If you want to spend a relaxing evening with excellent food, that's the place to go.
The food is amazing and 100 % fresh. What makes it even better, is that you get a glass of complimentary wine per course. It's a wine tasting within your menu.
5 stars well deserved!

Amazing place!
Jun. 2020 • Couples
It was a big coincidence that we end up in Origano driving from one place to another but we're are so happy that we end up in a restaurant like this! Place and food are just amazing! Everything is made from local products, to every meal you get a glass of wine that fits perfectly to the meal. Very nice garden, patio and a lot of locally made products that you can buy. We really enjoyed our lunch in Origano and hope we can come back one day.

Excellent restaurant, with brilliant food and really lovely wine. Good value for the quality. Also has a shop which sells its own produce.

Skip it

We went there in October, so the garden was out of question. The interior had no decoration whatsoever, since it was a veranda enclosed with glass panels. The waiter was cuckoo, suggesting us an octopus starter after we had just ordered a meat starter! The portions were small, the food quality was below average, the wine was free but average (they are wine producers, we were told), the price was above average, 45€ for one shared starter and two pasta primos, no desert, no coffee. No price for value. We left hungry. Good luck.

excellent wine and food experience

nice location, excellent service, local ingredients in a creative way, excellent wine (offered by them as they are a winery) paired with each course.

Tourist trap missing the soul of Salento
Oct. 2019 • Couples
Touristy with decent design & obviously catering to the English speaking crowd. Not worth the visit when you are surrounded by fabulous dining everywhere.

Tough, flavorless octopus starter.
Deconstructed parmigiana eggplant starter just ok. Bread missing any great flavor.
Monkfish tiny, cold, & missing any taste of the sea.
Their wines are nothing special, with the same bottles available everywhere in Salento.

No Italians in sight the night we dined. I don’t get the draw. Luckily the portions are obscenely small! Unfortunately, the price isn’t at 55 EUR for 2 appetizers and 1 segundo main Fish course. No desert. No coffee. No after dinner drink. No flavor.

Skip this. Really, skip it & no idea why it’s rated highly besides the “English“ Menu & cute garden setting complete with stray cats. Often a BIG red flag. Did I mention they cater to tourists?!

Cultured Delight
Sep. 2019
I was invited to visit Origano by an old friend who works for the owners - Menhir Salento - and who comes from Puglia where she has been growing grapes and olives with her father on their farm. I was overwhelmed by the quiet sophistication of the restaurant: The wines were matched to the food and both were superb. The first evening I dined very comfortably just inside the loggia next to the garden, but I was so impressed that I went back the next evening with a friend and we had a table in the elegant garden. The tables are spaced generously around the garden so that the sensation is that one is dining alone however many people are present. The service is faultless and discreet. My friend was almost speechless in his admiration of the dessert course, which involved a vegetable - celery I think - infused with tequila, with ice cream. The waiter said that one set of guests was so enthusiastic about the dessert that they ordered it three times during one meal! I had bought some wines from the shop after my first visit, and now I bought some more, including a delicious dessert wine almost like a light sherry. I realised though that I would not be able to pack all the wines in my luggage, and the next day had to buy another suitcase to carry just the wines! I am now investigating whether I can order the wines for delivery to London, and I am planning another longer visit to Puglia next year, when I shall again visit Origano as often as possible.
