A Tuesday night out of season with only 4 diners in attendance but the food, wine and liqueurs were excellent and the host Tony pulled out all the stops to entertain us all with his accomplished singing and first-class bonhomie. I know where I'll be going when I come back to Pizzo. Bravo Tony and your attentive chef and waiting... More

My wife and I were driving from Sicily to Monopoli and looked at the map and decided to stop at Pizzo for lunch. We found Don Diego on Trip Advisor and based on the reviews called and Don Diego said come on in, despite other web sites saying it was closed. Well we had one of the most wonderful lunches... More

A must stop everytime we come to Pizzo. Some of the best views in town. Host always extremely gracious. Everyone we come thru seen too nice a table for us - without asking - so it is positioned for the best views. Good local wine and amazing brick oven pizza. Never rushed and you may even get to hear some... More

Great outside space to dine and watch the sun go down from the huge terrace. Great service. Food lovely. We shared a fried calamari and prawn plate, followed by two pizzas straight from the pizza oven, all of which were great. Prices reasonable too and nice white wine for €15 a bottle. We had a tiramisu which was a little... More

Whilst walking around Pizzo I spotted this restaurant & was immediately taken by the location. With a panoramic view over the township & the sea this is the best restaurant view in town. The menu on offer was diverse & with a table of 15 people all were satisfied. In fact one was heard to quote that they'd had the... More

What an amazing view, what an amazing restaurant with amazing food! Visiting with friends and I could not rate this place any better, it deserves 5 stars, it's brilliant! Don Diego is a star, being a Lionel Richie fan I appreciate his choice of music 😍

I had a terrace table early evening (19.30) so there was only one other group of people on the terrace at the time. Because of this I asked the waiter if the ghastly Phil Collins CD could be turned down. It really detracted from the beautiful view at sunset. Otherwise the food was very good, I had mussels and then... More

I had lunch there a couple of weeks ago and I loved it ! Seafood was genuine, fresh and delicious and I really enjoyed the view of the seaside. The owner is really polite and sincerely attentive to the clients needs .

Recent visit to Don Diego's made us return. The food was exceptional, piano playing and singing by Tony was immensely entertaining and made for an overall tremendous evening. The views from the restaurant are lovely. Cannot begin to think of anything negative to say about this wonderful restaurant. Recommend to all. Also the personal touch by Tony and his partner...
