Excellent, creative, unique, great quality, great culinary experience. Our dishes were amazing. Fish prepared through 3 different processes before being served, amazing flavour and freshness. We also tried their meat dish, again, flavor and tenderness perfect. Their chef is extremely talented and has that extra gift almost of genius. Amongst the best we have experienced in the last few years.... More

I have never reviewed the same place twice but such is the affinity I feel that I have with Quintessenza in its ethos, it's food and Domenico, his brother and his fantastic team I feel compelled to do so. I first visited 18 months ago and there isn't another restaurant that I have been more excited to re-visit for all... More

Beautiful food - incredibly fresh and well presented - a stunning selection of local wines to match it and very fair prices - all topped off with warm, friendly and impassioned service. I have eaten in many of the world's great restaurants and few (if any) have come this close to getting it so right. The only slightly off-notes in... More

It hardly seems worth reviewing somewhere everyone gives five stars to, but it's so good one feels obliged to. Very stylish if a bit too bright, very attentive welcome and service, but more than anything very accomplished and well balanced food. We had the five course tasting menu which was fish and seafood based, with a delicious dessert. Every course... More

On a 2 week tour of Puglia in September I was fortunate to eat one evening in Quintessenza A modern design with great service without being over-the-top. The food uses traditional Puglian ingredients with a very individual twist. Flavours are truly amazing. The wine list is expertly chosen. Surely deserving of a Michelin Star,easily up to this standard. Prices for... More

Can only agree with the fine reviews that have been recently posted. Everything was so well done, both food and wines that paired so well with the courses. Our waiter was one of the brothers and he and his brother, the chef put out possibly the best meal we have ever had. Won't tell you what we paid but just... More

Justifiably numero uno, we had a delightful evening of great food and wine served with knowledge and warmth by the attentive staff. This is contemporary fine dining at very very reasonable prices. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough - if you are in Trani don't miss it and do try the Gallipoli shrimps, delicious creamy and melt in your mouth...... More

The brothers who run this modern very stylish restaurant are passionate about Puglian food and wines. We ate innovative, fabulous tasting dishes accompanied by wines from indigenous Puglia grapes made by equally passionate winemakers. We loved the friendly informative service that accompanied every course and such great value for Michelin star quality.

From the service, to the ambiance to the tasting menu to the wine....PERFECT. Everything. The service was delightful and attentive and they described every dish. We tried the tasting menu and it was the best I've had in a long time(and yes I live in San Francisco). I would be fat but happy if I lived near this restaurant. I... More
