Ristorante Art Nouveau


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

Art Nouveau Restaurant is located in a wonderful villa of the late Eighteenth Century, a lovely art nouveau country house which represents the symbol of Santa Maria al Bagno, a small sea front town along the Salento West coast, one of the most charming locations in Puglia. An essential as well as priceless place, where the art of cooking merges with the beauty of nature, in a sort of appealing and surprising mixture.

Rightly rated no 1 in Santa Maria. Fish was excellent, wines great value for their quality. Waiters were attentive and helpful. Beautiful position only slightly spoiled by the kids merry go round in front (it would have been fine without the music!)
