A bit of walking from central. Nice interior design. Friendly staff. We had burrata with tomato, orretaria with vongole, spaghetti with tuna and dessert, all good, including the bread. It seems that they serve different menus to small groups or Italians...... Not disappointed.

Just outside of the old city, a traditional, family-operated Italian restaurant listed in Via Michelin. We came here with a group to celebrate a birthday, and we were not disappointed. Service was great, food was better, wines a charm. Not to be missed!

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

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

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.
