I had some "orecchiete alle vongole" (local pasta with clams) and I got what I would call a small "half portion" with just a small handful of clams and very badly dressed... My friend who traveled with me had a sea bass filet which was as well very, very small... No wine by the carafe but only by the glass...... More

Sorry but after a sparse plate of grilled fish a side dish of basic salad I am not impressed, then the card machine doesn't work, which seemed to happen at every table I watched, So not impressed, there are far better places close by, keep walking

Wandering round Otranto out of season on a chilly but sunny end-of-April evening we stumbled across El Corsaro. We were a little early and the place was empty. But it looked so intimate and attractive inside we went in. We're very glad we did. We were greeted with a fine seafood menu and a warm welcome. Service was attentive but... More

We only stayed for a beer, which the manager was clearly disappointed by, but he was friendly and cleared a table for us, we watched our neighbouring tables order and receive platefuls of fabulous looking seafood and were convinced to order food, we were very pleased we did, (had we read some of the reviews on here we may not...

We had a lovely lunch here. The food was delicious and the service impeccable. We would recommend the saffron muscles and or the zuppa di cozze. Also the polpo e sepia salad was wonderful

We do not understand all the so-so reviews because we had a great time there : the waiter was super nice and took time for us to explain what to see around Otranto, we didn't wait at all and more importantly the food was excellent. We took a swordfish and a pasta with seafood, and it was really, really good.

I cannot understand the mixed reception of the reviews here - we had a wonderful experience. A very appealing location, sloping up a side-street in the Centro Storico, and a charming and kind host. Moreover the food was quite, quite excellent - it was our first night and the linguini with vongole was just as we'd been imagining it all... More
