Overall an excellent experience with great good and attentive service. The menu has a good choice and after a week of endless bread, pizza and pasta (yum!) we opted for both the tuna and beef carpaccio followed by beef tenderloin and all were excellent quality. There is a bar next door which had a good buzz that we would check... More

Maybe not a wood fire oven, but one of the best pizzas I have had in a long time. Loved the crudo e grana with on request rucola. Absolute value for money!

We went there on one night. Unfortunately they do not have a wooden oven for pizza. The pizza dough was not so good. My boyfriend ordered mussels with a side dish of vegetables and they were very salty. We had a good local wine. I had a very good desert: a lemon filled with ice cream, and my boyfriend had... More

La Vera Tipica is my favourite place to eat in Martano. There's a great atmosphere and the food is always good. This a great place to take the family or a group of friends. You will also find that the barman makes an amazing Capirosca with lemon and strawberry - not to be missed!

In a pinch for a lunch restaurant, we were directed here by locals, and we very pleased with the friendly, generous service, and most importantly, the fare. Several imported beers on tap. In the stables of a spectacular old great house, beautiful vaulted ceilings, cool and inviting. Tables also are set in the courtyard when it isn't to hot. Ample... More

What a gem of a place. Great traditional Italian restaurant serving fresh food in a relaxed style. Then next door is the bar, a vibrant venue with excellent service and cocktails by head Bartender, Antonio. An evening here when they have live events on is great and well worth a visit. Thanks!

We ate lunch here after a morning dodging the thunder storms. Proper Italian food and good local wines. Starters such as carpaccio of tuna for 8 euros and main course of scallopine of pork with a lemon sauce for 12 euros represent excellent value. There are lots of fish dishes on the menu.

Staying in Martano, we had a number of meals in this lovely restaurant. Delicious Italian food, excellent antipasti, lots of fish. Outstanding dishes were the Spaghetti with mussels and the swordfish. Recommend you ask for a table in the back courtyard. Not only good food, the service was excellent with really friendly staff.
