Description: Una fetta di pane di Altamura, pregiato manzo cotto con burro Bercy. Cibi tipici e fragranti, accanto al miglior luppolo made in Italy. Rossi e bianchi delle più rinomate cantine del Belpaese e dei migliori sotteranei vinicoli della Puglia: regione magica, dove la terra si trasforma in vino. La Murgia più aspra e più sassosa per sfondo, a due palmi dalla Cattedrale di Federico II di Svevia e dall'antica Piazza Castello. Tre sale e un'incantevole grotta scavata nella roccia. L'eleganza rustica del locale cattura viandanti affamati che da timidi e aridi si fanno impavidi e buoni. Il Malandrì vi accoglie tra muri di antiche pietre e volte a botte, dove colori e profumi di una contrada selvatica danno pienezza di gusto ad agrodolci di carni, salumi e formaggi. E un arrivederci alla lentezza con croccanti di noci e grappa.

So, we went to Altamura for the day to check out the Medieval festival. We got on the train from Matera and had a 20 minute walk from the station into the town centre and it started to rain.

We looked around and everywhere looked closed but we spotted a sign for this place in the Latino quarter and decided to give it a try.

At first, we thought this place was closed but it was raining very heavily so we went in.

Once inside, we were met by a lovely waitress who was speaking to us in Italian (thankfully my mate speaks Italian), but as soon as she realised we were English she began to speak in English. She was very friendly and recommended the club classico sandwiches.

We got some antipasto (cheese and meats) and potatoes with rosemary and bits of bacon to start, which was delicious. I don't really like wine but I have to say the wine we got was really nice and they have a reasonable selection of imported beers too.

By the time we'd eaten the antipasto I was already pretty full and then the club sandwiches arrived. They were huge and full of chicken, ham, tomatoes,etc. Really filling!

The atmosphere in the place was really chilled and they were playing loads of classic motown songs in the background, which for me was perfect.

It's a really friendly place. The staff were always smiling and it's a good place for families too. There was a couple with their 2 children (probably about 2 years old) who were being well looked after as well.

Between me and my friend, it cost about 47 euros for antipasto, rosemary potatoes, 2 club classico sandwiches, water, a beer, a bottle of white wine and 2 coffees.

Absolute bargain.

We had a great meal in a nice and friendly atmosphere with very friendly and happy staff.

Also, when we left, the sun had come back out and the festival was up and running again.

Only drawback, when we were looking at the menu, it didn't look like they served pasta.
