Farmacia dei sani was a highlight of our trip to Puglia last year and so we returned with much anticipation. The menu is less interesting, and the portions are much smaller, resulting in a fairly expensive meal. We felt rushed through the whole dinner and came away feeling that they are riding on their reputation rather than continuing to maintain... More

Fine food and service, very nice place. Quite expensive, 35-40 EUR each. To recommend for an elegant dinner, to avoid for an easy and substantial one.

Great pugliese cuisine. The two owners make you comfortable at once. Outside the terrace is on the cute old village place. Inside the cave-like atmosphere is great. Good wines at a decent price.

This place is really top notch. Great food from Puglia tradition and super attentive service. Eating outside in the village small square is an unforgettable experience. Spaghettoni with colatura di alici, lemon and pistacchio are very good. Stinco di maiale is also very tender and tasty. Reservation is a must particularly during July or August

I had heard so much about this place and I am so glad we visited, had a super lunch with lots of typical food but with a twist I would say the must have is the dessert. The staff were very helpful and attentive and the location is really nice a small boutique restaurant a must visit in Salento

My husband and I went to this restaurant on a Saturday nightand had the menu gourmet. 7 serving each one better than the other. A real discovery ! The staff was so nice to us. I highly recommend this place. It's worth a detour if you are in the area.

One of the best meals I've ever eaten in Italy. Yes, the service and location are both great but the food is really something else.The Stinco di maiale dish was absolutely delicious, so tender and succulent without being fatty. Don't pass this place by.

What a fantastic evening we had here. The ambiance was excellent, the staff attentive , and the food very special. We were a party of ten, and we were served efficiently and pleasantly. Several different dishes were chosen and all were beautifully presented and tasted very good. The house wine , was also a very nice locally produced product.
