food was excellent, as was the service. We were a bit early so not many people there to begin with but soon filled up. Staff very friendly & helpful.

This restaurant was recommended by our host, and we were very happy he did. Great place, wonderful food (also local dishes), very friendly staff. After our great first experience we went back for a second time and we were not disappointed. That we did not want to eat meat was not a problem at all. And the wines weer great... More

Look at the pictures on his site or on instagram and you feel already the creative spirit of the young chef who is on top of that very friendly, very proud, very open, very helpful - like his staff. But as surprisingly delicious his appetizers and prima piatti were ... the rest of the menu was "normal": nothing special with... More

I would add my voice to all the great reviews of this restaurant since I have had many wonderful meals there. But there is a but! All I can say is "keep up the good work and don't get complacent". The last couple of times I have eaten at the Caroseno I have been very disappointed. First there is a... More

We enjoyed the amazing set menu with wine. Nicest meal after several trips to Italy. Service was also first class on a quieter weekday lunchtime.

After visiting the caves, I was looking for my first real meal since arriving in Pugla. Osteria Carosena did not disappoint. I had the orecchiette con tartufi and it was positively delicious, rich with truffle flavor. The servers were attentive and professional. The bread unique. And I got complementary small dessert (which was perfect since the pasta was a good-sized... More

Our second night in Puglia and our host B&B kindly booked this for us. It was a hot night for we northern folk, and we ate outside in a stifling little alleyway covered with an awning. Delicious starters, delicious fritto di mare and stinco for the main course but we had to wait an hour and 23 minutes for it... More

Beautiful setting, attentive and knowledgeable waiters with excellent local cuisine. There were large groups of friends, families and couple tables so it's a true Osteria which suits all. Highly recommend eating here whilst in Puglia!
