I was touring Puglia with fellow photographers and stopped for lunch at this restaurant in the heart of Alberobello. We were warmly welcomed by the owner. I was suggested to try the local lamb chops and wild chicory accompanied with few glasses of Primitivo wine. A match made in heaven!! I loved this place and I would happily return next... More

Was recommended to try this restaurant by Francesco (Allways Puglia). Great recommendation. Went on our last night of holiday but wished we had gone earlier in the week. Very friendly, polite, helpful and professional throughout the meal. All food is purchased and sourced from the region and cooked fresh. Best bit was the attention to detail when serving the wine....

We stopped by for lunch and enjoyed some traditional pasta dishes served with delicious red wine, craft beer from Puglia and lots and lots of delicious bread (great foccacia). The owner was very friendly too.

Delicious food, featuring local cuisine. They pride themselves on being a slow food provider, but in actuality it's not because you've got to wait a long time to get your meal. Rather, the food comes relatively quickly, but getting it to the table took the time. It's delicious local fare, reasonably priced.

L'Aratro restaurant is a very good place for dinner. The food is excellent quality and the wine list is also good. If you want a nice meal in Alberobello this is the place.
