Food was pretty good, ambience was pretty basic, one meal came out after everyone was finished... May be better to find a sassi restaurant for a more authentic experience

The best restaurant experience in Puglia. The antipasto is overwhelming, the salted fish incredibly good. Wonderful local wines The chef recommended a local specialty which we really enjoyed. Genial and relaxed. We liked it so much, we returned the next day.

We went to Baccus on a weeknight in off-season (cool and rainy night), so there were few other customers there. The restaurant, which is quite large, has a number of different rooms, so it felt more like a small restaurant. One can observe the kitchen...More
