Make sure you reserve in the cave as this restaurant has side-by-side locations. We ate there twice since the food & service were outstanding.

Excellent meal in a beautiful restaurant last night. The stuffed zucchini flowers were the best I've had this trip and the rack of lamb not only looked amazing but was a taste sensation. The service was most efficient and friendly.

The restaurant is located on top of the city, in the midst of striking white narrow streets. The cave setting was really magical, coupled with exquisite food and great service. We really recommend this place when in Ostuni.
