We went through a 5-courses tasting menu: the food was delicious, especially the raw fish and the spaghetti with sea urchins. Waiters were attentive and helpful in assisting us especially for combining wine with food. Absolutely recommended! Siete veramente bravi!!!

Very nice surprise to find such a gem. Decor, food, service. Everything is right. Easy to find even though a bit off track. You should try the purple shrimps from Gallipoli and the capriccios. Extremely fresh and of a great quality.

This place is great. Excellent wine list, nice staff, attentive service and very fresh seafood. The sea urchin pasta is delightful, the appetizer with mussels was delicious as the crudo and the desserts were very good. Great restaurant in a very special small town.
