We walked by the restaurant during the day and the chef was there (listening to great music). We asked about vegetarian food and he said with notice he would make something special. We made a reservation for that night. Very few times in my life have I had someone put so much attention into making a delicious vegetarian meal. Different... More

Wonderful food and staff. We enjoyed a hole evening with our two year old daughter. We would visit again although a bit pricy.

This is a very nice surprise in the crowded Vieste in the high season of August: a very cute and calm restaurant with a beautiful courtyard and furnished with taste. The menu is very small but contains spectacular creations going far beyond the usual antipasti/primi standards one finds in other restaurants. A bit more expensive than the average in Vieste...

Went here for dinner during our stay in Vieste. Such a lovely evening - we have been made so welcome during our stay in Puglia but both the welcome and the food at La Ripa were top class.

We arrived at about 3pm and were graciously seated, after checking that the kitchen was indeed open- as they prepped for the evening meal. We were seated in the alleyway by the main entrance to La Ripa, and ordered three starters as unfortunately we were not hungry, but wished we were after reading the menu.... A glass of Prosecco with... More

Driving up to Peschici from Bari off season, we stopped of at Vieste for a quick visit and maybe a bite to eat. Everything was closed, till we stumbled upon La Ripa which seemed open. Walked in what is an underground cave, there was a large tour group half way through lunch. It was 2pm, staff very nicely said they... More

Out of all the restaurants in the old town of Vieste we chose this one, because you can sit at a table in a dead end candlelit street of this unique environment, and because we wanted something different than the traditional pizza-pasta dishes. We had starter, main course and a dessert, accompanied by a bottle of wine. All were very... More

La Ripa is located at the top of the town. The interior is very atmospheric with its' candlelit vaulted stone ceiling. Varied menu including a good selection of vegetarian choices. The food and presentation is of a very high standard. Good wine list. Not cheap but my wife and I thought it was overall our best evening meal of the... More

La Ripa is found in one of the small streets just behind the Duomo in Vieste (which is certainly worth a visit in its own right). The front door is just past the kitchen window and there is a small table outside with a copy of the menu. We visited at around 1.30 pm in the afternoon and inside at... More

We tested a fish selection. They have also several meat dishes, about which I can say nothing. All fish dishes were very good and especially refined. No trivial or standard solutions. Even the fried calamari came with a quite enjoiable mixture of fried vegetables. FIne desserts as well, especially a local sweet "cartellate", with semifreddo and almonds. Servings were average...
