Not the first time we visit La Concepita. Always had fresh food and good service. During our 5 days trip during Christmas time in Lecce we decided to have our lunch today at this cozy trattoria. In 4 we shared 1 linguine cozze and 1 linguine scoglio very rich in sea food, super tasty and perfectly cooked and then we... More

We had fish only dinners and we came two days in a row - super good. Enzo's kitchen is great and the staff is very nice.

It is true that you should visit for the terrific antipasti. Many of the fish preparations were not to my taste. The staff was welcoming and accommodating. Make sure to call for a reservation.

We had the fish appetizer which was very fresh and tasty. They even put a Canadian flag on our table! People all around were very nice and helpful.

Concerned with corner nondescript restaurant upon first glance but a definite yes!! We loved the pasta and fresh seafood. The owners were friendly and delightful and shared their homemade mirto as a digestif after our meal.

I strongly recommend the aperitivo mitico. Nice people in a cool area, a short stroll from the seaside.

Advised by a local to visit this place we were enormously disappointed by small portions, low hygienics standards and a very high bill. £15 for a small pasta dish! A very good way to discouraged tourists to visit Puglia! Do not recommend this Daniela

Excellent seafood! Being from this area and having high standards for raw fish, I was skeptic in the beginning but I have to say that left impressed by the freshness of everything.

We stopped in San Foca for lunch and found Concepita around the corner from the parking place in front of the marina. It looked like a fast food place from the outside, but we were hungry and decided to stay. Pretty fast we understood that this was the place to eat. We were early but after an hour the place...

The owner recognized we spoke very little Italian and also that we were cycling through San Foca. He came over to our table, made us feel very welcome, and spoke with us about what seafood we liked. They presented a sampler platter that was customized to our tastes. It was a real feast! It had at least 12 or 15... More
