This was our last lunch as part of tour of Puglia with Katia our guide. The chef told us that he would bring us vegetarian dishes and we should just eat & enjoy them. Well we did, he kept on bringing a variety of freshly made flavoursome antipasti all from local produce. What an unforgettable experience. The Orecchiette with turnip tops and chickpea & chicory soup were also outstanding. We topped it all with a delicious tiramisu. Highly recommend

La Murgiana was our first proper lunch on our recent visit to Italy. To say we were overwhelmed by the quantity and variety of food prepared for us would be an understatement. We were initially served a large assortment of antipasti - all very interesting, delicious and made from fresh local ingredients. This was followed up with a very filling bean soup and then two main courses. Our guide Angelo made sure that the delicious food was accompanied by the local Primitivo wine. Needless to say we were served an amazing assortment of desserts which were finished off with a liqueur. This restaurant was catering for a large family gathering (approx 40 people) at the time of our visit, however this did not affect our service and the friendliness of all staff.

When visiting the local area, we decided to stop for lunch. There's no standard menu as all dishes are offered depending on season and ingredients availability. We had a big selection of antipasti, two main courses and dessert. Place is well worth a visit as food is authentic, plentiful and tasty.

We had lunch here as part of our tour of Puglia. The wine was excellent but don't overdo it as my husband did get a bit tipsy! The range of antipasti was amazing, so many dishes and shouldn't be missed. We didn't choose anything from a menu as our guide said that everything was served as the dish of the day but don't worry, you will not be disappointed!

When had a terrible, but emplematic experience here. When we asked for a wine list, it was denied by the waiter who said we would enjoy the local wine. Then without asking for our order, food began to appear. When we protested, the waiter said just wait you can get other dishes later. After the second round, we protested again and he said in Puglia one must eat a lot. All of this occurred as the owner conducted job interviews in the dining room. These folks have lost perspective with regard to customers. A verbal menu is not a blank check.
