Went last night to this restaurant, assuming that as it had been awarded a Michelin star we would be up for a treat. Sadly that wasn't the case. We didn't book ahead, but they seemed very happy to give us a vacant table. However as...More

We had a lovely dinner experience at this restaurant. The location is beautiful---in a small town i Puglia, in the main square, of the historic town center. Charming. The restaurant itself is run by the third and fourth generation, which adds to the charm. And...More
