Very disappointed. Fish carpaccio crudely presented and almost inedible, local speciality clearly microwaved, swordfish tepid but overbooked, veal tough and drowned by mushrooms. Maybe they gave up as the season was over. An expensive mistake. Avoid

Hungry so dived into this tourist restaurant in Otranto. Disappointed with bland fish filled Tortelloni. Partner had a pickled fish carpaccio which we were told was a local recipe! Ahem?With so many great restaurants around avoid this one.

There was excellent choice of local specialities. The dishes were of high quality, but the portions on some of the main meals were a bit small. The atmosphere was great and the service was excellent. The price level was a little on the higher side.
