Description: Art Nouveau Restaurant is located in a wonderful villa of the late Eighteenth Century, a lovely art nouveau country house which represents the symbol of Santa Maria al Bagno, a small sea front town along the Salento West coast, one of the most charming locations in Puglia. An essential as well as priceless place, where the art of cooking merges with the beauty of nature, in a sort of appealing and surprising mixture.

Rightly rated no 1 in Santa Maria. Fish was excellent, wines great value for their quality. Waiters were attentive and helpful. Beautiful position only slightly spoiled by the kids merry go round in front (it would have been fine without the music!)

Two of us on Monday evening for a special occasion. I've booked a table on a terrace calling some days before. Extremely polite staff and professional in everything. Ordered a king size platter of raw shellfish for two (€35, see photo), two pasta plates, two desserts (one was a red shrimp semifreddo, see photo), a bottle of water and a bottle of rose wine + entree offered. The wine list is great and the professional advise of the owner on a type of rose to match to our order was accurate!
Total paid for two: €112
Delicious dishes, lovely view, good wine and professional but warm service = perfect ingredients for a relaxing evening in Santa Maria!
Highly recommended!

A very stylish restaurant on the waterfront with food to match.A very eclectic innovative menu – all the dishes were interesting.We went for sea urchin pasta – very sublime and rich in flavour as it is a rarity to find on menus.

We were disappointed with our grilled gamberoni prawns six in all for 20 euros as a main dish as they came completely alone on the plate even though fresh and again flavoursome.We mentioned to the very professional polite and engaging waiter and like any good restaurant they compensated with our aperol spritz complimentary
We have discovered in our time in Puglia that Gallipoli prawns are very high quality mainly eaten raw as very delicate and also expensive

We highly recommend this restaurant and would definitely return

Perfect location; good food; great wine list; classy decor; cotton hand towels in the bathrooms and reasonably priced. Complementary bowl of crudités and basket of bread. A class above the usual beach side tourist traps for much the same price. And can have a dip in the turquoise waters of Bagno Maria as well. Definitely worth a visit.
