The food impeccable. The service really rare to find of such high standard yet not uncomfortably stiff. It makes Trani even more worth of a visit.

Fantasic experience, not to miss when visiting Puglia. Recommended 100% and absolutely worth it. Tasting menu with drinks pairing was incredible and the service was impecable. Special thanks to adapting the menu to be gluten-free.

We stumbled across this restaurant and we were so happy we did. Beautiful decor, excellent service and amazing lunch. Three courses of delightful, amazing food finished with the chocolate cherry. Perfectly recommended wine. We can’t wait to return for dinner.

From the time of booking, you were made to feel important and valued . Reponses were prompt, information was accurate and Domenico even sent an updated copy of the autumn menu when it was available. The outside and decor is elegantly understated . The service...and food were absolutely out of this world. Especially loved the Ricotta tortelli in red shrimp and moscato bisque. Thank you to Di Gennaro brothers and staff. I thoroughly recommend. Deserve the Michelin Star.More

We,a group of three, had lunch at this lovely restaurant in October. We loved it! The food was fabulous, every course was creative, packed with flavour and absolutely delicious. There was an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients with the wine and olive oil from family...run farms. The service was excellent, so helpful and informative. Our favourite dishes were the red mullet followed by the ricotta tortellini with red prawns. The folks of Trani are lucky people - tourists should put it on their 'must go to' list.More

I looked for the restaurants with Michelin stars of this region. I chose this. I was not disappointed: on the contrary. I know many starred restaurants in Europe and in Italy in particular. This restaurant is at the top end of one star. Actually I...found it one of the best I know in Italy. Surely the best in the region i have ever eaten in, and the region has several really good places. Every detail of the dishes I ate was just perfect. I also liked very much the minimalist but very tasteful and comfortable interior, the quiet atmosphere, the kind and unobtrusive service. The price quality relationship is more than favourable. I shall return to this place for sure! Warmly recommended!More

We visited this restaurant on a trip around Puglia - it was a 90-minute drive out of our way and we were not disappointed. The tasting menu was excellent - each dish tasted fantastic, the accompanying wines went very well with the food and the...menu itself was exciting and telling a story. We highly recommend the Quintessenza seafood tasting menu with the wine flight - every dish was a seafood lover's dream! Service was also excellent - staff were extremely friendly and nice, making us feel very welcome and explaining each dish and the story behind each wine. My one comment would be that it would be preferable to wait until customers have finished one glass of wine before bringing the next dish and the next glass of wine (I felt a little rushed with the wine) - however I'll let that slide since we had a great evening! This was the best meal we had during our week-long food trip in Puglia - an amazing experience that's definitely worth going out of your way for.More

It was our 20th Anniversary and we decided to try this wonderful restaurant based on reviews and we were not disappointed. This is truly amazing. We went for the tasting menu and matching wines and it consisted mostly of fish which suited us perfectly. The...staff (mostly brothers) were fantastic, really attentive but not overly. They explained each dish to us and you could feel the passion they have for food and for their restaurant and their pride is infectious. Finished off with what was probably the nicest grappa I've ever tasted, like a 20 year old Irish whiskey. We were treated incredibly well and if we're back in Trani we will definitely be back. Thank you.More
