We had a glad surprise when after a day of walking in the cold and wind brought us here. .. it was great to have a break and enjoy "pugliese food"... good service and great antipasti... we end up only with the antipasti as it was samples of local cusine. Ambient is also nice...

Popped in late on a Monday night. Really friendly staff, good pizza. House wine the weak point but otherwise fabulous.

We found this restaurant by accident wandering the back streets of the historic centre of Ostuni. The local advertising directing visitors do it little justice. The outside terrace filling a tiny square filled quickly and we had delicious Margherita Crudo e Rucola pizzas.

In 2014 I ate some of the best mussels I had ever had in this restaurant so, when we went back this year, it was with high expectations. Sadly, they were not met. The mussel dish we ordered was, at best, average and the pizzas undercooked and flabby. It seems as if they are a little understaffed, as you have... More

We had a shared antipasti with some wine - lots of different bits, but nothing extraordinary I have to say. They forgot to bring us the sparkling water we ordered :(

We were recommended to try this restaurant as the pizzas were apparently good. Well the antipasti was good but frankly the pizzas were very disappointing. Not very well cooked and very thin toppings. They had no taste apart from flour! We also tried some other main courses and you need to be careful in your choosing as some were not... More

We saw this restaurant on a previous evening and when the locals are queuing it generally says it is worth a look. It is tucked away down back streets but it is in a little square area. We tried it last night and we were not disappointed albeit just for a pizza (half the side of the table) and a... More

First I don't understand the place of 90th on the list (at the time of writing), I believe this restaurant deserves much better. The decor is authentic with old stones, yet a modern table setting. The waiter was very kind and efficient. We tried their delicious orecchette pasta with clams and zucchini and the best is that they come out... More

Comfortable but a bit of a tourist trap. Food and service were acceptable but you can find better in Ostuni. Antipasti were good but the mains were average. Only tourists in here until some locals arrived later in the evening. Decor was fine but not exceptional.
