We had a lunch with mixed starters, both raw and cooked, and one primo each. The food was really good, selection of local fresh fish. The cooked antipasti were prepared very well with different flavours and mix of ingredients. The wine list is also good. BUT, there is a big BUT. The atmosphere was horrible. The place as such is...

I only speak a little Italian, and struggled a bit with the menu here, but the waiter was very friendly and patient. At his suggestion, we went for the mixed appetizers, followed by a seafood pasta. The four appetizers were Octopus (char grilled), Squid (Grilled - served with a sauce that may have been chicory and fave bean - but... More

Everything was excellent: food (good portions!), atmosphere, service and courtesy! Nice surprise was the final bill... super good value for money! Definitively a place that I would recommend and where I will come back every time I will be in Trani!

We discovered this place thanks to TripAdvisor. It is located in a piazza near the Porto, off the main touristic pathways. Its client are mainly locals from Trani. Those who do not like fish should avoid it. Dishes are very fresh, simple and exquisitely tasteful. Price are moderate. It is also an "enoteca" specialised in local wines including the famous...

Our B&B recommended this restaurant for seafood and we were not disappointed. The "appetizer special" consisted of 4 items (including octopus and squid) -- all prepared in unique, delicious ways. The pasta with fish sauce (tiny pieces of branzino in a tomato based sauce) was wonderful. The service was friendly and accommodating. We would definitely return!

Fantastic food experience. Not on the harbour side - no view but a lovely atmosphere away from the hussel and bussel. This is a weakness on my part, I can't read Italian so did need to do a lot of translation with the phone as the descriptions were quite poetic so my pigeon skills were very much stretched. It would... More

Excellent lunch. We had an assortment of antipasti with a very good wine recommended by the waiter, followed only by primi (too hot for secondi at lunch that day). We found the atmosphere in the outdoor seating area excellent, the fish very fresh, the antipasti innovative. The waiter recited the menu for us, and I always fear an exaggerated price... More

This resto offers some really fine and delicious novel italian food and excellent local wine. Go there if you want a treat. The dishes are reasonably priced, and the local wines are excellent.

Closed Monday night so we had lunch the next day. The weather permitted us to eat outside overlooking the square. The interior is very small with one salon and a banquette opposite the central island where fish are displayed and one may observe the cook. Everything is freshly prepared and we were warned by our charming waiter of the likely... More
