A big welcome, fabulous food, great local wine and a tiny bill - that sums up Al Torchietto. The owner and chef, Alessandro, is the most wonderful host; he delighted in introducing us to local dishes we had never tried. The antipasti are just marvellous - thirteen different tastes, a little like tapas, all for 12 euros!!! The menu includes... More

We've eaten here many times, the last being with family visiting with us. The staff remember us now and know our usual drinks orders, which is pretty impressive given we don't actually drink a lot.

The place is really nice, as you eat outside of the restaurant, by the swimming pool. The food quality is average, by great value for money as you don't spend a lot. The service is rather average, some food arrived late and the mood o the waiters can vary. Absolute order: the antipasti pugliesi: 14 small dishes of local cuisine.
