Had a great lunch meal here on a gray and cloudy weekday. Simple, fresh fish was delicious and well priced. On the house bruschetta appetizer was tasty and welcome. We had everything from basic orecchiette with a tomato sauce to mussels marinara to fried calamari and tuna carpaccio. Each was well seasoned, delicious, and a pleasure to eat. We sat... More

Stopped here for lunch and had the most wonderful plate of fresh cooked prawns in brandy. Best lunch we had in Vieste

Good food at very reasonable prices. No food on offer at our hotel so ate here for three nights – we did not order expensive dishes but the service was excellent, the local wine very drinkable and reasonably priced, and the coffee excellent. Also the free Bruchetta and Limonchino were a much appreciated gesture.

Very nice and cosy restaurant. The food was really very delicious. It was lovely to sit outside and enjoy the view to the harbor, sea and ships. The staff was very attentive and helpful. The prices were reasonable.

Nice restaurant for lunch with friendly service. I had the Tuna Carpaccio which was a different dish from the carpaccio I usually have in Sydney but equally enjoyable. I also had a lovely fresh cherry tomato salad served with olive oil and basil. A perfect combination for lunch.

One can eat outside - sheltered from the traffic and weather by glass, roofed terrace. Good view of harbour & beach. Great food, though locals tend to eat indoors we preferred outside for the view

A cozy seafood restaurant at the center of Vieste. Octopus salad with olives and anchovies in vinegar were delicious starters, followed by perfectly cooked shrimps risotto and homemade spaghetti. We skipped desserts for on the house limoncello - a perfect ending for a pleasent dinner.

Box 19 was recommended to us by our B&B hosts. Definitely a good recommendation. We were not disappointed. Box 19 is located just off the main square which separates Vieste from the old town. What the restaurant lacks in atmosphere is more than made up for by the quality of food on offer. We liked the food so much that... More

Visited this restaurant during our stay near Vieste as it was on my list of venues providing gluten-free food. Not many of the dishes on the menu were GF but I had the spaghetti alle vongole which was tasty and the sea bass. The waiters were attentive and very careful to point out which dishes were suitable for coeliacs. The... More

Fresh fish from the nearby port on offer. The food was very well cooked and presented by chaps who were perhaps just a little on the grumpy side!
