The restaurant is right on the water's edge, which often does not bode well for the price/quality ratio. Happily this restaurant is an exception. I had the prawn and zucchini ravioli, topped with lots of mussels and calamari. A very satisfying, filling and healthy meal for 13 euros. Couldn't ask for anything more. That said, pizza seems to be the... More

From the street this looks nothing (next door terrace looks better!) but go down the stairs into building and ask to sit on terrace by beach which is fantastic view - clear blue sky and sea on the day we were there. Big venue but quiet for lunch in September. We had great pizza from wood fired stove, freshly prepared,... More

Pizza was really tasty but staff was running up and down to serve other tables. It looks a bit dirty though. On average. Suggest to sit at the terrace by the beach.

If you want to sit at the beach in a restaurant in Otranto this is the place to go. We came for a lunch time and sat right by the beach, you are seperated by a 4 foot balustrade but the view is wonderful. We went for an Anti Pasti of meets and cheese and a Piadini or Pizza like... More

The restaurant is in the city and you have a very good view . We liked it very much . The food is also very good but we have eaten better. But I would recommend to go there and enjoy the view with wine and food. I believe it is one of the best in the city but later we... More

We stayed just outside Otranto but chose to return here to eat each day. Service was efficient and meals were all delicious and reasonably priced. House white and red wine ordered by the half kilo went well with the range of dishes. Our favourite was the octopus stew. Outside seating provided a good view of the sea and Centro.
