We actually wanted pizza on our last night in Bari and found this restaurant which is way more than a pizza restaurant. It is located near to the castle and Victor Emmanuelle Road at the end of a short ally. Inside is clean and strikingly beautiful. We were seated graciously. We could not stand another 3-4 course extravaganza, although it seemed many of the patrons (mostly locals) were enjoying this. We had a Caprese salad composed of stacked flavorful tomatoes and mozzarella on a base of greens and chopped basil on top. Flavorful. We followed that with a shared Pizza Giampaolo (mushrooms, pork and mozzarella with a small amount of tomato sauce on a thin crust cooked in a wood fired oven) and grilled vegetables. We washed it down with a 10 euro bottle of local red and sparkling water. Very pleasant and staff was nice even though we did not have a huge meal. Note that like other restaurants, there is a table charge of 3 euro per person no matter what, not including any service tip. We left with a 45 euro charge including a 5 euro tip. A really nice send off from Bari.

Everytime I heard that expression, it makes me laugh. I was proven wrong when we dine at Giampaolo Ristorante Pizzeria in Bari, Italy. From the time you enter their establishment you are well taken care of. They are famous for their pizza. It's really true their pizza is different. To tell you the truth, as much as possible I avoid eating at Italian Restaurant, my stomach doesn.t agree with the food. But their pizza is very different, the combination of ingredients (mostly products of the region) makes the pizza really delicious. Just try their Tiramisu, it's really to die for. :-) This is the most important of all, their food is not expensive. It's very affordable, even for a tourist with a shoestring budget.

When we went in it was quite empty. Normal for Bari at 8:30. Filled up very quickly though so it seems very popular. This however became a bit of an issue as the staff seemed obsessed with getting us out if there. Order fast, serve fast and inaccurately and off you go. Food was good even if it was not what we ordered and the wine recommendation was good too. If only they would lay off the get you out quick thing....all in all a good experience. Will go again

Good looking restaurant with very tasty food and great seafood selection. If in Bari definitely it's an option for an impressive lunch but please consider making a reservation.
