We have passed through Vieste for 3 years now (on a yacht) and visited this restaurant each time. In my opinion it is the best restaurant in Vieste. It is run by a lovely Spanish couple (NOT IRISH as reported by previous reviewers - how could they be so wrong!!!) and the food is many notches above the standard tourist... More

A very innovative approach to seafood dishes, including the presentation. A staff of two who make sure that everyone enjoys their meal. Loved the place.

Lovely restaurant in the old town. Food was delicious and freshly prepared. The menu was adapted to suit gluten free. Local wine list also great. Overall a most enjoyable meal with great service. Definitly recommend this restaurant for fresh local food with a modern twist.

Set in a very small side street in the old part of town. This is a small restaurant which could easily be missed. Step inside and what a little gem this place is. The food is first class, well cooked and presented. They obviously take great pride in what is presented. The food is of the region along with the... More

We ate here one evening having decided on it based on the menu outside (and not the TA reviewers). Overall it was very nice, good fresh pasta and fish, service very good and a nice setting. Would recommend.

We finished a walking holiday in Vieste, and our route manager recommended the restaurant. It is not that easy to find if you walk through the narrow twisted lanes, easier if you walk around by the sea wall, but you would miss many photograph opportunities! Once we arrived we found it was empty, not usually something you want to see... More

Al Cantinone was recommended by our B & B hostess. We were hungry and cold at 6:00 pm but walked around town till 6:45, then sat on the stoop across from the door to the restaurant waiting for it to open. Just before 7:00 a family came walking down the street and asked if we were hungry. They laughed, opened... More

We visited this restaurant with high hopes but left a bit disappointed. I, for example, had bruschetta with anchovies followed by grilled fish (almost everything on the menu was fish, not a criticism, just a fact). The bruschetta was good and comprised a stack of toast with alternating layers of anchovies; it was good. The grilled fish was three nicely... More

We walked back into the historic city centre in the evening for dinner. Joan inspected the menus of at least half a dozen potential restaurants but she had read a few reviews of a particular restaurant, called Taverna al Cantinone, and we continued our search for it. She even asked a waitress sitting outside a very cute restaurant, lovely room... More

We went there twice - at the start of the holiday as it is the highest ranked place I town and at the end of the holiday, as it is by far the best place in town. This is the sort of place you hope to find on your holidays. Amazing local products cooked to perfection. Make sure you have... More
