I visited here a few years ago and enjoyed it so much I always knew I would return when in the area. Nothing has changed, the owner Nicola is warm and welcoming and his wife Christina produces the most excellent food. This really is a little gem there is no menu so you go with what the kitchen is producing... More

I don't often feel moved to write online reviews, but this incredible find truly moved me to. We stumbled across the town of Minervino Murge in the middle of what must have been siesta time. On our way back to Naples airport after a fantastic holiday with ten friends, we were starving and desperate for one last Italian feast. We... More

This was amazing. The owner is so nice. The food is so good. And it feels like you're eating in your own home. Best in Minervino. Just let him serve you and you'll be happy!

A lovely local lady helped us find this restaurant on our long drive through Puglia. The owner / host was charming and friendly and his son was also very helpful. The food was typical of Puglia and delicious - especially the French / Italian beans! Grazie! Ciao, Ruth and Jon (UK)

Fantastic - antipasto had good portions - orecchiette was some of the best we've had on our trip this year ( and we are from Monopoli so we know) and the meat which is the "thing" for this town was fantastic The owner is fantastic and truly cares about your experience Check it out -

In a scenic town with few restaurants this is a great find. Great value home cooking with very fresh ingredients in the local Puglian style. What more could you want? The owner, Nicola Balducci, speaks goodish English and is as hospitable as is possible to be. The locals eat there, and he made us tourists so welcome - finishing off... More

This restaurant just inside the Centro Storico is a little gem. Old fashioned Italian in beautiful rooms that were previously the home of the Contessa "Palazzo Di Contessa". We arrived at lunchtime and one or two tables were occupied. No menu was offered but the most delightful antipasti was served followed by a pasta verdure. A half litre of vino... More

We stopped in Minervino on our way to our new years eve destination because the town looked so beautiful perched high on a hill. It was a little tricky to find a restaurant since most were closed at lunch and getting ready for the big "cenone" in the evening. Asking around one of the shopkeepers pointed us to L'Antico Palazzo... More
