We had a good conversation with the waiter, the food was really good. He gave us some advice on local specialties which were excellent.

Pasta was good but second dish calamari and shrimps were frozen... For a local advertising typical Italian food that was disappointing. They have an ad in the door against TripAdvisor so I guess they don't get many good reviews. Service was OK.

On a side street near the amphitheatre we stumbled across the little gem. The menu was local Salento cuisine (translated). The interior was pure Puglia (outside seating also available, but as this was Lecce festival season, a bit to bustling for our taste). The food...More

We spotted this restaurant after visiting Piazza Oronzo and,tempted by the dark, cool interior, ventured in. We were greeted rather reluctantly but offered a table in a practically empty restaurant.

Our first choice for dinner as recommended to us turned out to be the sandwich shop "Come Vuoi" on the Duomo Square, which was not what we wanted. We walked nearby and found Locanda Rivoli on via A. Imperatore. It was full with a tourist...More

We were there for dinner one evening, without reservations. The waiter was very attentive and helped us select local dishes, including a bruschetta made with a bit of ricotta made from goat's milk, not cow's milk. Very pungent but very tasty! The fish in salt...More

It doesn't look as upmarket as some of the other restaurants in the area but if you want good honest food this is perfect. Grilled bass expertly served at the table, good pasta and warm and friendly staff.

Central to the historic district, it was a bright and lively location. The ristorante is sizeable but on a beautiful night, people filled the tables outside. With this ristorante, their outdoor dining straddles the sidewalk. Most people walk past without interfering with the patrons but...More
