Beautiful food. Great service given by a young lady called Paula who helped us with our translation into English. The chef at this restaurant was very accommodating, especially for someone who dosent eat fish. Despite specialising in fish.

Very good restaurant. We had a delicious fresh fish, and excellent frutti di mare pasta. Desserts are all very good. Bin here twice and never disappointed! Next to that, it is not expensive. Good value for little money 👍

With unimaginable low prices for a restaurant of this level you can eat very special dishes following the culinary traditions of southern Puglia with innovative touch of modern cuisine. One of the best restaurants around Lecce.
