This restaurant was recommended to us by the Masseria we stayed. We already had seen this restaurant earlier this year but had no time to visit it. The place is easy to find since it is at one of the main roads in Maglie's city centre. Easy access when you walk there. when we arrived at the Restaurant, we were... More

This is one of those places I hadn't researched on TA. 5 of us were just deciding on whether to stay or leave Maglie when we passed by. Dona Lisa looked so inviting that we decided to have lunch and are very glad we did. Service was friendly and understanding that we wanted to "share everything". Our only error was... More

We visited this place after reading reviews of others on tripadvisor. A very elegant garden hosts a small number of tables. It seems like having dinner at a friend's house. We tried the friselle and 2 main meat courses. The meat was very well cooked and of excellent quality. Service was great. If you are at Maglie you must definitely... More

Very good service. Family running business. Antipasti are fantastic..! The regular dishes are large in size! You must be real hungry to eat a starter and main course.

Wonderful food but we filled up on an appetizer that was no less than 10 plates so we returned for lunch another day.

This was the best pasta in our week in Puglia! Absolutely delicious, as was the veal with onions. Tiramisu and cheese cake capped our lunch!! The owners were friendly and we felt part of the family. We loved it!!

To start, I do admit that the food was good, and definitely worth its value, even though there was too much food, and I hate waste. What bothered me the most about this place was that what seemed now to be a family styled restaurant (not what I expected nor what I had heard about it) was the family being... More

This is a simple family run restaurant in Maglie, Puglia. The food is fresh, good, and the servings, in my estimation, too large. The pasta with anchovies and pine nuts with fennel ferns was delicious, but impossible to finish.
