During our stay in nardó we had a couple of dinners in this place. Location is very nice and enjoyable (both the rooftop and the patio has plenty of charm). Food is exactly the way I like: taking local best and fresh ingredients with a little twist.
Spaghettoni with shrimps, anchovies and burrata were to die for as the octopus.
Price is really reasonable compared to the quality of food. Best price for quality we had in salento.

The cherry on the top of a visit to beautiful Nardò, this place is magical from the outside, and magical inside. Elegant cuisine, highly original in flavour combinations and yet rooted in local and traditional foods.
Truly elegant, and at the same time sincerely amiable kind. The magic begins outside, in the fairy-tale courtyard, as continues inside with elegance and taste, and finally expands in the heavenly "above".
You cannot go to Nardò and not pop into this Relais for dinner.
I didn't stay at the hotel but I have a sneaky suspicion it must be delightful.
Will definitely return and bring friends.

Ate in the courtyard here. Good service and good antipasti. The primi and secondi were fine- not life changing but fine. Perhaps a bit pricier than other places but an acceptable alternative if you are looking for something a bit more up town.

There is a saying among travellers that you'd never eat where you sleep. Whatever the origin of this saying is, it is certainly not true for relais il mignano, via lata 29 in Nardo, Puglia.
The hotel is a typical town palazzo in beautiful medieval Nardo (we selected Nardo as our base for trips to the Salento countryside both at the Ionian sea and at the Adriatric sea.the palace has big quiet rooms and a wealth of small terraces all over the place to collect each ray of sunshine (which was, we must admit, absent during our stay. This couldn't be helped by il mignano, of course) but, the idea that we could have sat there with a fresh cappucino or a glass of delicious Apulion red wine, was some consolation. Internet was strong and everywhere. So we spent many hours in the book lined salotto; a joy in itself.
The restaurant wasgood with a lot of fresh fish and seafood. Like many restaurants it offered a selection of antipasti (5 in total, which gives an element of pleasant surprise and which will do as a whole meal.we only have one advice for all restaurant owners who have this sample on their menus: please halve the orginal quantities of the antipasti in order to prevent a too early total satisfaction.
Very good wine; wecompletely fell in love with Apulian reds: negroamaro, malvasia, nero di Troia: sweet memories

FOOD: very good. I enjoyed monkfish pasta and the "ombrina" fish was the best I ever had. Dessert "Biancomangiare" was ok,
SERVICE: the owner at the cash and the one who should have been the maître were nice and professional. But the younger waiters looked not professional enough for a place that aims to be top rate, they forgot some requests, jumped on my foot during serving, looked not coordinated. I understand that in August the place was crowded and they had to climb many times a lot of stairs but I wasn't satisfied from that service,
LOCATION: great, I had the the chance to eat on the terrace with a nice view on the other buildings roof,
RATE PRICE/QUALITY: fair for food and location but not for the service
