We were on a business trip in Polignano a MMare and found this gem of a restaurant on the 3rd of our 5 nights by chance. If the fact that we had diner at "Infermento" on the 4th & 5th night as well doesn't speak volumes already, then it might do that the size of our group kept increasing every... More

If only we had known it before! The staff was exceptionally helpful, the location was great and the food was simply AMAZING. We had a mousse di pescespada(swordfish mousse) for antipasto. This was followed by a delicious insalata di polpo (octopus salad) with mango and almonds, so tasty and fresh we couldn't believe it! Lastly we were recommended by the... More

The staff were very pleasant - let them recommend the wine, their choices are perfect. A great opportunity to taste local varieties of wine at very good prices. They also go out of their way to accommodate... More

I went to Infermento for a wine tasting and to really learn about the wines of Puglia. I came here because I was told that if you want to be educated about the wines of Puglia and to taste the best of what the region has to offer, Infermento is THE place to come! Giuseppe Fato guided us through an... More

We visited this restaurant, after a recommendation from a cookery school in Lecce. On our first visit we had a delicious meal. As we were leaving we asked if they did a tasting menu. Although they only do this in high season, they said they would do it for us later in the week. The tasting menu was just great.... More

Cool bar, excellent soundtrack. 9 craft beers on draft. Extensive wine selection: no wine list, all between €10 and €12 a bottle. Oh, and the food is as good as I have tasted ever. Home cooking done with flair. Try the homemade cheesecake with fig syrup...

I was recommended this place by a friend who had visited when he was in Polignano and it was a great recommendation. We only had drinks here, both nights we visited (!), but the beer and wine selection was great. Some local small brewery beers as well as some overseas stuff (from the US and England) on tap and there... More

We had dinner with some frends in this restaurant in a cozy, relaxed atmosphere. Food and wine are just spectacular and the owners are really friendly and welcoming. I definitely recommend this place if you want to experience some innovative cuisine made with traditional, local ingredients.
