Ate her 3 times during our stay and every meal a winner. After 3 weeks in Italy still rate their pizzas the absolute best

Not a lot going on in Manduria, I walked around for an hour after I'd located this one just to find alternatives. There was one open and one on holiday. But very glad I went. Excellent warm cuttlefish salad followed by fat spaghetti cooked in Primitivo. Really delicious. Some grapes for pud, a double espresso and the bill was €20... More

Nice restaurant in the center of Manduria. They have typical plates and many types of primitivo wine.

excellent seafood, wine and ambiance. Was recommended after we toured the Primitivo wine museum. If we're back in Puglia we'll return
