We have spent 2 week traveling across the Puglia region, eating through pizzas, pasta and fish. But this restaurant was the best, most authentic and delicious experience we have had. Wide variety of fresh meat, from steaks to local rolls, hamburgers and mixed meat on grill will serve anyone’s appetite. Even my girlfriend who usually doesn’t eat meat was surprised and enjoyed the dinner. Accompanied with terrific vegetable sides, home-made wine, low-cost prices and helpful and friendly staff, this place definitely fulfilled and exceeded all of our expectations of traditional italian restaurant. This is a MUST.

"Go where the locals go"is generally a good rule to find the best restaurant in town. This was clearly an exception on this rule, even when you are a meat aficionado. We had to pick our number, wait in the crowd to pick and then choose our meat from a butcher's showcase. Back at our table outside the waitress asked what we wantedwith our meat; there was a choice of potatoes, fries, saad and vegetables. Soon after we ordered that our fries and veggies arrived. Waiting for our meat we meanwhile started to eat our side dishes. The meat still didn't come, there seemed to be very little coming from the grill room, the whole terrace was waiting. After we finished the side dishes the waitress wanted to clear the table. We had to attend her to the fact that that we didn't get our meat yet. She went inside and a bit later there it finally was: a plate of scorched dead animal. The lamb was edible, that's all we could say of it.
The bill showed why this 'restaurant' was so popula: the price! Save a bit more money and go to a proper place, would be my advice.

This place is superb. We visit multiple times each summer. You select the meat from the butcher's counter and quote your table number. In the summer, the seating is outdoor in a lovely square. Delicious BBQ meat and sides of a green salad, grilled veg, chips or baked potato wedges. House red in carafes, white in full bottles only. Average €30 for two including red wine, such good value. Love this place!

Great place! Great food and good service. Even though we didn't speak Italian we managed to order food. Among the best meet I have ever had! Loved the bacon with mozzarella.
