We booked for Saturday night as we had had a long day leaving early to visit Padre Pio's tomb. This restaurant was only around the corner from the Palace Hotel. Maurizio the head waiter was wonderful, made us feel special, showed us many dishes which...More

We went to this marvellous place twice. Yes, it is a place to return to, for sure. Our first impression of the restaurant was that it wasn't super cosy, not like a quaint little "trattoria". It's more high end and quite stylish. But once we...More

On one of the main streets in Bari but you have to know about it - you ring a doorbell to be admitted. Delicious food, all based on local specialities from Bari and Puglia in an elegant dining room

Good value for money. Excellent food. The puglian mixed start was superb. It's a shame there is not a menu in English.

I just had a dinner there. Very good cheeses, good seafood. Quality/price very good!!! The only thing that I did not like, it was the layout, so old and so sad.

We were advised by Mimma, the receptionist at The Palace Hotel, to visit this restaurant. What a great suggestion, Franco the owner and Mauritsio the Maitre'd made us most welcome and the superb food just kept coming. The dining was silver service of the highest...More

Well ... this restaurant seems frozen in a time I didn't live as I was a newborn. Crimson walls, old pictures of forgotten celebrities in a bygone era, autographs on napkins, and the mustard tablecloth just matches the cold lighting. The food is very good,...More
