Antipasti degli Spiriti to die for! You must try it! Any choice of pasta, equally! Piero, the host, recommended local red wine - Negromaro, Abatemasi, 2013 - to go with our meal, and it was an excellent choice if you favour a strong full bodied...More

After my return visit to Osteria degli Spiriti, I find it necessary to revise my recent review. After a really excellent dinner with my wife just after Christmas, we returned there for lunch with some friends who had recently arrived to Lecce. While the food...More

Although my wife didn’t love her appetizer, the food was excellent and of the highest quality. Service was aloof but very accommodating. Anything that we asked for was instantly taken care of. This is not your mom & pop trattoria where you are treated as...More

They could care less. I don't care how good the food is, or how many Michelin forks you have, it is pretty hard to enjoy yourself with such an unbelievable arrogant attitude on the part of the waiters (and manager) and such lousy service. In...More

I have been in Lecce for 3 weeks studying Italian. My lunch here was the most unpleasant experience I have had due to the patronising attitude of the two waiters. The lunch was superb not matched by the service.

Located a few minutes walk from the centre of gorgeous Lecce, Osteria degli Spiriti is peaceful, attractive, comfortable and quite traditional. I was pleasantly surprised to see it was open for Saturday lunch in August and it suited us very well: good food without being...More

For a Michellin rated restaurant, I found it to be overrated. As far as I'm concerned, it was the service that was most disappointing. The server was aloof and unapproachable.

On a very hot day, we went to this osteria for lunch. Given the heat, we opted for a bottle of Rose and the antipasti de la casa. The Rose was affordable and cold. The surprise was the antipasti which consisted of a series of...More

Delicious local food, the highlight being the beans with chicory. We also ordered the chickpea pasta another local favourite, as well as lamb chops and grilled squid. The waiter (son of the owner) was a great host and helped us with our lack of Italian...More

It's only about 3 minutes from the heart of town and definitely worth it. I had a fish carpaccio starter--tuna, salmon, and swordfish--that was beyond generous in portion and exactly as it should be, with mixed greens and a condensed balsamic on the side. The...More

Sorry for the late reply, only just picked this up. No, not expensive, plenty of variety at the lower end of the scale if you want to keep things under control

In the center of Lecce, Osteria Spirits welcomes you with a pleasant atmosphere warm and cozy. An oasis of good food thanks to a kitchen that gives great satisfaction from a raw material of excellent quality, which makes it possible to prepare the tasty appetizers of vegetables in traditional dishes from Salento, and various homemade sweets. Excellent wine list and spirits.
